  1. Maggot Therapy for Ulcers (ABC News)
      "Now a new study in the British Medical Journal, headed by researchers at the University of York in England, reports that maggot therapy is about as effective as conventional therapies at healing leg ulcers. The fly maggots cleaned the wound slightly faster, but did not increase the overall rate of healing. Also, the maggot treatment was much more painful in the early stages." 03-09

      "Treatments to kill H. pylori were refined in more scientifically conclusive studies, the first of importance performed by one time skeptic David Graham. In a two year study of 100 ulcer patients, published in 1992 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, Graham found that a combination of antibiotics, bismuth and ranitidine eradicated ulcers in 95 percent of patients with gastric ulcers. By contrast, ranitidine alone was effective for only 12 percent of gastriculcer sufferers and 13 percent of duodenal patients." 09-06
