The inadequacy of most of traditional sources for medical information, like textbook and review article, do not sustained the clinical decision based on the best evidence current available, exposing the patient to a unnecessary risk. Although not integrated around clinical problem areas in the convenient way of textbooks, current best evidence from specific studies of clinical problems can be found in an increasing number of Internet and electronic databases.

Revue D'histoire De La Pharmacie

In 1796 homeopathy was born by the publication of an Hahnemann's article in a periodic founded by C. W. Hufeland, a German physician, Professor in Iena, who was friendly with Hahnemann during more of thirty years. This periodic, which defended the experimental philosophy and was devoted to the practical medicine, will be nevertheless the mean instrument to spread Hahneman's ideas until the issue of the Organon in 1810.

Stiftung: Essen, Karl und Veronica Carstens, 2004].
