Our present research follows what has been named "the memory of water".
First we empirically observed that highly dilute (i.e. in the absence of
any physical molecule) biological agents triggered relevant biological
systems. Some of these experiments were reproduced in three external
laboratories that co-authored an article on the subject (Nature, 1988, 333,
816-818). Next, blind experiments with an external team showed that the
activity of highly dilute agonists was abolished by an oscillating magnetic
field, which had no comparable effect on the genuine molecules. Later,
several hundred experiments have confirmed our ability to transfer to
water, using an amplifier, the specific molecular activity of more than 30
substances, such as physiological and pharmacological agonists, antibodies
(purified or in whole serum), antigens and even the specific signal of
bacteria. In our most recent experiments, we digitally recorded (sampling
44 kHz) specific biological activities on a computer. When "replayed" to
water, plasma, target organs, cells, or to an antigen-antibody reaction,
the recorded signal induced an effect characteristic of the original

These results strongly suggested the electromagnetic nature of molecular
signalling, heretofore unknown. This signal, that is "memorized" and then
carried by water, most likely enables in vivo transmission of the molecular
specific information. We have recently obtained direct evidence for the
critical role of water in the transmission of the molecular signal, at the
usual concentration as well as at high dilution.

At the least, these advances indicate the reality of the high dilution
phenomenon and allow for the transmission and detection at a distance of
any normal or pathological molecular activity. At most, they could
profoundly change biology and medicine.
