The results from 2 published clinical trials involving 1679 subjects were included. Subjects who received at least 2 g daily of Carnitine showed decreases in pain scores. One study showed improvements in electrophysiologic factors such as nerve conduction velocities, while the other did not. Patients who had neuropathic pain reported reductions in pain using a … Continue reading Treatment of DPN (diabetic peripheral neuropathy) with Carnitine support its use

Gastroprotective effect of L-carnitine on indomethacin-induced gastric mucosal injury

Numerous studies have shown that use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is associated with various gastric mucosal lesions, L-carnitine, protects the biological membranes against lipid peroxidation. It has recently been shown that L-carnitine has a gastroprotective effect on gastric mucosa. RESULTS: The intragastric administration of indomethacin induced hyperemia and hemorrhagic erosions in the rat stomachs. … Continue reading Gastroprotective effect of L-carnitine on indomethacin-induced gastric mucosal injury

L-Carnitine Protects the lining of the Stomach from Ulcer

L-Carnitine Protects the lining of the Stomach from Ulcer The intragastric administration of ethanol induced hyperemia and hemorrhagic erosions in the rat stomachs. L-carnitine significantly prevented gastric ulcerogenesis induced by ethanol and decreased the ulcer index. Plasma and gastric lipid peroxidation that was increased significantly by ethanol was decreased after treatment with L-carnitine. Ethanol treatment … Continue reading L-Carnitine Protects the lining of the Stomach from Ulcer

Statin Drug Protects Against Ulcers

Statin Drug Protects Against Ulcers Gastroprotective effect of simvastatin against indomethacin-induced gastric ulcer Simvastatin significantly increased the gastric mucosal total nitrite and prostaglandin E(2) levels. Additionally, simvastatin attenuated the elevations in gastric mucosal superoxide dismutase observed with indomethacin. The gastroprotective effect afforded by simvastatin was significantly augmented by coadministration with L-arginine (a nitric oxide precursor) … Continue reading Statin Drug Protects Against Ulcers

Marginal Ulcer After RNY Bypass 4 – 8%
