The activation of water by physical means stimulates a new scientific approach to microbiology, in particular, antimicrobial methods. However, many of these methods are unproven or have not been properly tested. Since the 1980s, a promising procedure known as biophysical-information therapy or bioresonance therapy (BRT) has emerged as an alternative method against microbial diseases, but it has not yet been properly evaluated. It was demonstrated that by transferring amphotericin B (125 µg·ml-1)information to water samples by an electronic amplifier (BRT device), the growth of cultured Candida albicans was significantly (P<0.05) inhibited (46% growth inhibition), compared with those cultures treated with sham electro-activated water samples (0% growth inhibition), and a positive control of amphotericin B (125 µg·ml-1; 80% growth inhibition). Evidence for a measurable biological effect by electro-activated water samples that somehow acquires, or at least mimics, the antifungal property of amphotericin B has been demonstrated in the present study. More studies, however, are necessary to elucidate the mechanism by which such electro-activated water resembles the activity of an antimicrobial agent.
Key words: Antimicrobial effect, activated water, bioresonance, amphotericin B, growth inhibition, Candida albicans.
