Objective: Whether ultra-highly diluted homeopathic remedies can effect living systems is questionable. Therefore this study sees value in the analyses of whether homeopathically diluted Glucose 30C has any effect on Escherichia coli exposed to arsenite stress

Conclusions: The results demonstrated the efficacy of ultra-highly diluted and agitated glucose in mimicking the action of actual glucose supplementation and its ability to modulate expressions of hexokinase and glucokinase enzymes and glucose permease genes, thereby validating the efficacy of ultra-high dilutions used in homeopathy.
