Homeopathic pathogenetic trials (HPTs) are designed to identify specific and characteristic symptoms in apparently health individuals, after having been exposed to homeopathic medicines, so that the latter might be indicated following comparison to the patient’s symptoms. The original methodological guidelines for HPTs were defined by Hahnemann, who advocated rigorous methods likely to lead to conclusions free from any conjecture. With the advances in scientific methods, new guidelines were also proposed to improve the methodological quality of HPTs. Relevant scientific contributions were made by Brazilian researchers to develop this field, resulting in the publication of original studies or innovations on its methods. The validity and reliability of the clinical information acquired from HPTs are fundamental for the success of homeopathic clinical practice. (AU)
