Alpha-lipoic acid prevents kidney stone formation in experimental model

A communication published online on February 6, 2017 in Nature Medicine found a role for alpha-lipoic acid in the prevention of kidney stones in a mouse model of cystinuria: an inherited disease that results in recurrent kidney stone formation. In a collaboration between the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the Buck Institute, Tiffany Zee, PhD, and colleagues […]

Lipoic Acid Therapy Found to Slow Rate of Brain Atrophy

LONDON—Treatment of patients diagnosed with progressive forms of multiple sclerosis (MS) with lipoic acid appeared to improve patients outcomes, in particular, reducing the rate of brain atrophy, researchers reported at the Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis. In a small placebo-controlled trial, magnetic resonance imaging revealed a lower rate […]

Alpha lipoic acid attenuates high-fructose-induced pancreatic toxicity.

Abstract OBJECTIVES: Chronic consumption of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) causes several problems such as insulin resistance. The goal of the study was to investigate pancreatic damage induced by chronic HFCS consumption and the protective effects of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) on pancreatic cells. METHODS: Wistar Albino, 4-month-old, female rats weighing 250-300 g were randomly distributed into […]

Alpha-lipoic acid protects mice against concanavalin A-induced hepatitis by modulating cytokine secretion and reducing reactive oxygen species generation.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Alpha-lipoic acid (α-LA), which exits in almost all types of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, is a key regulator of energy metabolism in mitochondria. This study was designed to explore the protective effect of α-LA against concanavalin A (Con A)-induced hepatitis in mice and explore the potential mechanism. METHODS: Acute autoimmune hepatitis was induced […]
