"Today I can say that the patients whom I have seen feel better after being treated with Armenicum. They look bright and cheerful and feel a burst of energy. So–I think that the medicine has a prospect," Malakhov said.

On March 17–reporting live to the "Dobroye Utro" program from Yerevan–Malakhov quoted Dr. Mead as saying that "the scientists are on the right track. We have witnessed certain things during our visit and we are so taken aback that we need time to think the entire matter through."
