Drops

Liquid dilution for oral intake, rubbing in

Active ingredient:

Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) 6X

Composition:

1 ml liquid dilution contains: Medically active substance: 1 ml Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) 6X dil. Other constituents: purified water.

Characteristics:

A. Calmette and G. Guerin have described the production of a primary solution of Mycobacterium tuberculosis var. bovis between 1911 and 1914. After a long and very particular preparation, this solution exhibits an avirulent condition, without losing its antigenic properties. This suspension of weakened bacilli is applied for inoculation, and it gives rise to a positive cutaneous reaction. The homeopathic production is based on an extract of this bacterial strain which, on the one hand, does not have any infectiousity - as common vaccines do - and, on the other hand, has extraordinary immunomodulating characteristics.

Indications:

Homeopathic remedy: To be used according to standard homeopathic indications. Inflammation after BCG prophylactic vaccination, hypertrophy of the tonsils, erythema nosodum, tuberculous rheumatism after Poncet-Leriche, articular rheumatism, asthenia with chronic hypotonia, for immune modulation.

Application:

Ampules

Liquid dilution for injection

Active ingredient:

Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) 6X

Composition:

1 ampule of 1 ml contains: Medically active substance: 1 ml Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) 6X aqueous dilut. Other constituents: isotonic sodium chloride solution.

Characteristics:

A. Calmette and G. Guerin have described the production of a primary solution of Mycobacterium tuberculosis var. bovis between 1911 and 1914. After a long and very particular preparation, this solution exhibits an avirulent condition, without losing its antigenic properties.

The homeopathic production is based on an extract of this bacterial strain which, on the one hand, does not have any infectiousity - as common vaccines do - and, on the other hand, has extraordinary immunomodulating characteristics.

Indications:

Homeopathic remedy: To be used according to standard homeopathic indications. Inflammation after BCG prophylactic vaccination, hypertrophy of the tonsils, erythema nosodum, tuberculous rheumatism after Poncet-Leriche, articular rheumatism, asthenia with chronic hypotonia, for immune modulation.

Application:

Unless otherwise prescribed: 1 ampule of 1 ml to be injected deep intramuscularly - regular intragluteally - while the patient is lying down, 1 x fortnightly. Normally the treatment is started with the administration of drops 6X or capsules 5X. In case of absent or weak reactions the dosage may be gradually raised by shorter intervals - 2 ampules weekly at the most. In case of strong reactions, injections have to be discontinued; the treatment can be continued with the dosage forms drops and capsules. As a general advice the dosage has to be chosen adequately, so that strong general reactions do not occur and that local reactions are confined to the site of injections.

Contra Indications:

Fever, conditions of weakness. Do not medicate in case of known allergy against Mycobacterium bovis (BCG).

Adverse reactions:

None known. Generally well tolerated. Occasionally local reactions like rubefaction, swelling or painfulness may be observed, normally vanishing without treatment. These effects are not to be seen as adverse reactions, but rather as an expression of effectiveness. In the first 2 or 3 days after the injection sometimes conditions of weakness, fortified expectoration, slight painfulness of the region or subfebrile temperatures may show. Strong general reactions are always a sign of overdosage or of incorrect injection technique. In this case the treatment can be continued orally with Bovisan drops or capsules. Should hypersensitivity occur, discontinue medication and treat symptomatically.

Interactions with other remedies:

None known. An interval of 2 weeks should be kept to the administration of vaccinations. In cases of simultaneous treatment with immunosuppressive remedies, the effectiveness of Bovisan may be influenced.

Side effects:

None known.

Precautions:

Do not use if seal is broken or missing. This remedy should not be used past its expiration date. Protect from light and heat during storage. As with any drug, if you are pregnant or nursing a baby, seek professional advice before taking this product.

Duration of treatment:

Dependent on the advice of the physician or health care professional.

Advice:

Shake well before use. In isopathic therapy Bovisan is employed as an irritative agent for all subacute to chronic relapsing infections, especially in the head area. Before the administration of Bovisan, an increased toxin-elimination is important. Under the noticeable stimulus threshold, too, a good effect of Bovisan is achieved.
