Milk thistle no better than placebo for treating hepatitis C infection
from Pharmacy Practice News
Even at very high doses, the herbal extract milk thistle, silymarin, does not improve disease status or relieve symptoms in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus infection, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. "Silymarin did not provide greater benefit than placebo for patients with treatment-resistant chronic HCV infection," wrote lead author Dr. Michael W. Fried, professor of medicine and director of hepatology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
