Research, published online in the Journal Acupuncture and Meridian Studies has looked at the effects of Lycopodium clavatum (LC) on cancer cells.

It studied dilutions of both 5c and 15c.

The researchers explained that the LC-5C was diluted below Avogadro's limit, i.e., 10−10, and the LC-15C was diluted beyond Avogadro's limit, i.e., 10−30.

The researchers from the Molecular Biology Laboratory, Department of Zoology, University of Kalyani, Kalyani, West Bengal, India and the Boiron Laboratory, Lyon, France found that the results revealed that administration of LC-5C and LC-15C was not harmful to normal blood cells, but caused considerable cell death through apoptosis in cancer (HeLa) cells.

This was shown by “the induction of DNA fragmentation, the increase in expression of protein and mRNA for caspase 3 and Bax, and the decrease in expression of Bcl2, Apaf, and cytochrome C release”.

They concluded that both potencies of the remedy Lycopodium clavatum had demonstrated their capability to induce apoptosis in cancer cells.
