Abstract

Therapeutic interventions may trigger nonspecific mechanisms whose effects are not attributable to the specific properties of a given treatment.Recent investigations on the placebo effect as well as other mind-body interactions are helping us to understand some of the underlying mechanisms, as well as beginning to provide us with potentially effective adjuvant treatment strategies for a variety of human diseases.
