Les effets de l'Arnica Montana sur la coagulation sanguine. Essai clinique randomisé.

The effects of Arnica Montana on blood coagulation. Randomized controlled trial


The purpose of this study, which took the form of a two-period cross-over clinical trial, was to determine whether a homeopathic substance, Arnica Montana, significantly decreased bleeding time (Simplate II) and to describe its impact on various blood coagulation tests. It was not shown that this substance had a significant impact on various parameters of blood coagulation in healthy volunteers in the period immediately following administration [corrected].
