I have just been made aware of a very good double-blind trial in which nullopathy is proven once again to be effective in the fight against disease:

  1. Seitsalo et al, Effectiveness of low-dose doxycycline (LDD) on clinical symptoms of Sj√∂gren’s Syndrome: a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled cross-over study, Journal of Nullopathy, 2007, 6:11

The researchers did a trial where they gave one group nullopathic medicine (i.e., no medicine at all) and another group were given medicine as a positive control. The trial was a success: the nullopathy group could not be separated from the medicine group:

Overall, the effects of medications on subjective symptoms were minor. Wilcoxon test demonstrated increased fatigue with LDD during medication (p < 0.05). The differences may, however, reflect normal fluctuation of symptoms in SS patients.

Controlling the Trial

To ensure that the medicine group did not benefit from the placebo effect, the nullopathy group were also given placebos. These contained no medicine and therefore can be considered part of the nullopathic treatment.

Conclusions

We can safely conclude from this trial that nullopathy is as effective as medicine in the treatment of disease.

The particular trial design is similar to that used in a homeopathy trial recently.
