Role of Complementary and Alternative Therapies in Infectious Disease

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is increasingly being used in Western countries despite the lack of conclusive research studies. Several CAM modalities have only shown variable therapeutic efficacy in infectious disease management. Clinicians should be familiar with these therapies in order to advise patients about alternative therapeutic options when treating infections.
