Homeopathic drug dropped

8th May 2008

The sale of a homeopathic drug has been dropped by the cosmetics chain Neal’s Yard after the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said customers were being misled that it could treat malaria.


All homeopathic remedies are classed as medicines and require prior authorisation by the MHRA, but Malaria Officinalis 30c has none. The MHRA said it regarded the promotion of an “unauthorised, self-medicating product for such a serious condition? to be potentially harmful to public health and misleading. Neal’s Yard accepted that there was no clinical proof that Malaria Officinalis 30c worked.
