Model validity of randomised placebo-controlled trials of individualised homeopathic treatment

Purpose: A new programme of systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of homeopathy distinguishes several key attributes of study design and quality: placebo controlled cf. other-than-placebo controlled; individualised cf. non-individualised homeopathy; treatment cf. prophylaxis; internal validity cf. model validity. The present phase of the review programme focuses on assessing the model validity (MV) of peer-reviewed, placebo-controlled, RCTs of individualised homeopathic treatment.
