Obstetrics homeopathy is widely used in Ireland but it has also been linked to complications in the United States.
The Mayo Clinic’s Clinical Research Unit (CRU) and its affiliate, the Mayo Medical College, have been studying the drug for the past three years.
We were able to isolate the gene that causes the enzyme, which is responsible for making the homeopathic enzyme, and we’ve found that it is in the genome.
We’ve shown that the enzyme is present in the gene and it affects how homeopathic drugs work, so that the drug works better than the standard homeopathic one.
That is really important, said Dr Marie-Christine Pardew, CRU’s lead researcher and senior lecturer in obstetric medicine at the Mayo Clinic.
She added that the gene is involved in a range of biological processes.
The enzyme is active in a number of other parts of the body, and it has been found that when the enzyme does not function, it can also cause other problems, for example inflammation and cancer.
The gene was first isolated from a strain of mice that had a mutation in the enzyme and was used to study the effects of the mutation on the enzyme.
Dr Pardw said that if the gene had been in the original strain of the mice, the mutation would have made the enzyme less active.
However, when the mutation was introduced into the original mouse, the enzyme remained active and the mice had normal growth rates.
The researchers said that the mouse strain that developed the mutation had a similar gene to that in humans.
This indicates that the mutation in human mice was in fact the result of an accident, they said.
This means that the human mutation that caused the enzyme to be inactive was in the germline, the offspring of a mother and father, rather than in the nucleus.
They said that it was a “significant result” and a “major advance” in the understanding of how homeopathy operates.
They added that they had found that the mutated enzyme affects the function of the enzyme in two ways.
Firstly, it has a greater effect on other parts, such as the liver.
Secondly, the effect is more pronounced when it comes to inflammatory cells, which are the cells that produce the toxins that are produced in inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes and other conditions.
The findings, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, could have implications for homeopathic medicines in general, and other therapies that target specific cell types, such an anti-inflammatory drug.
They were also able to show that the mice that developed this mutation had impaired ability to metabolise certain substances, such that they developed more chronic inflammatory disease.
Dr Daniela Giorgi, a research fellow at the University of Reading, said that these results “provide a novel molecular mechanism for the mechanism by which homeopathy can influence inflammatory cells and promote cancer”.
This is important because, she said, inflammation is a major cause of chronic disease in people and the immune system can become more active when the body is stressed.
The research has been funded by the National Health Research Council of Ireland.
