Studies on the thermal water from the Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch mountain
Terme Merano/Therme Meran places great importance on scientifically proving the effectiveness and healing properties of its thermal water. When Terme Merano/Therme Meran opened, a scientific advisory council was set up for this purpose made up of renowned researchers and hospital doctors of international standing and fame, who know all about thermal water and the pathologies that can be treated with it.
The members of the scientific advisory board at Terme Merano/Therme Meran meet once a year to:
- Decide which programmes will be supported to advance scientific knowledge through studies and research.
- Organise congresses for scientific exchange.
- Research new treatment methods and therapeutic treatments.
The last study at Terme Merano/Therme Meran was published in 2012 in the Official Journal of the Association of European Doctors for Ear, Nose and Throat Medicine. This evidenced the therapeutic effect of the thermal water at Terme Merano/Therme Meran in patients with chronic inflammation of the upper respiratory tract, who had not responded well to treatment with antibiotics.
A new study is currently being planned, which is to prove the effectiveness of inhalations in patients with upper respiratory tract allergies.
