ESCAMP - European Scientific Cooperative on Anthroposophic Medicinal Products

ESCAMP is an international cooperative of researchers and experts in the field of anthroposophic medicinal products (AMPs), founded in March 2010 as an incorporated charitable association with headquarters in Freiburg, Germany. 

ESCAMP aims to develop the scientific basis for a permanent regulatory framework for anthroposophic medicinal products (AMPs) in Europe. This includes methods and standards for the scientific assessment of efficacy-effectiveness, safety and cost-effectiveness of AMPs as well as appropriate categories, criteria and documents for regulatory assessment of AMPs.

ESCAMP has a three-stage evaluation strategy:

  1. Description of Anthroposophic Medicine and AMPs
  2. Evaluation of AMP therapy as a whole system
  3. Evaluation of single AMPs and AMP groups in monographs

This evaluation will integrate existing scientific data e. g. from the Anthroposophic Pharmaceutical Codex, the Monographs of the Commission C, and from a health technology assessment report on Anthroposophic Medicine. In addition analyses on existing databases such as the Vademecum of AMPs and the EvaMed-pharmacovigilance database will be performed. Furthermore, ESCAMP may initiate new research projects.

ESCAMP members are nine medical and scientific experts on anthroposophic medicinal products (AMPs), representing six European nationalities. ESCAMP is supported by an Anvisory Board Advisory board, consisting of:

European Federation of Patients Associations for Anthroposophic Medicine

International Association of Anthroposophic Pharmacists

International Federation of Anthroposophic Medical Associations

Medical Section at the Goetheanum
