Mechanism of Injury

The liver injury attributed to lớn Move Free products has been reported lớn be due lớn Chinese skullcap, but the mechanism by which this herb might cause liver injury is unexplained.

Contamination or misidentification of the herbal components is always a possibility in explaining the appearance of liver injury.

Move sầu Free has not been linked to lớn instances of adễ thương liver failure, chronic hepatitis or vanishing bile duct syndrome. In patients presenting with ađáng yêu, unexplained liver injury, all HDS products should be discontinued and the case reported lớn federal registries.

Case 1. Repeated episodes of adễ thương hepatitis after use of Move sầu Free.(1)

A 78 year old woman osteoarthritis developed jaundice within 3 weeks of starting “Move Free Advanced”, a proprietary multi-ingredient nutritional supplement advertised lớn be helpful for joint discomfort. She had no history of liver disease, but had a previous cholecystectomy. She denied alcohol abuse & risk factors for viral hepatitis. She was taking no other medications except for multivitamins. On presentation, serum bilirubin was 7.2 mg/dL, ALT 1626 U/L, AST 1053 U/L, alkaline phosphatase 354 U/L và GGT 599 U/L. Tests for hepatitis A, B và C were negative sầu. She was hospitalized & the Move Free hàng hóa was stopped. She began to lớn improve sầu without specific therapy và was discharged after a few days (Table). Because her joint symptoms worsened, she restarted the Move sầu Free hàng hóa và redeveloped jaundice within two weeks. Her laboratory tests were again abnormal in a pattern similar to the initial episode. A liver biopsy showed adễ thương hepatocellular injury with many eosinophils suggestive sầu of drug induced liver injury. Tests for autoantibodies were negative và a CT scan of the abdomen showed no evidence of biliary obstruction or hepatic masses. At this point, the nutritional supplement was suspected lớn be the cause & was found to lớn be Move sầu Free Advanced & have sầu glucosamine, chondroitin and two herbal ingredients, Chinese skullcap and blaông chồng catechu listed together as “Uniflex Proprietary Extract: 200 mg”. She was told to avoid its further use & in follow up her symptoms resolved và liver tests improved.

An elderly woman with osteoarthritis developed an adễ thương hepatitis a few weeks after starting an herbal & dietary supplement called “Move Free Advanced” that was thought to lớn contain glucosamine and chondroitin only, neither of which are considered hepatotoxic. No other cause for the hepatitis was identified, and her physicians assured her that glucosamine & chondroitin were not the reason for the liver injury. Upon restarting the multi-ingredient nutritional supplement, however, she redeveloped jaundice. On closer inspection, the hàng hóa label of Move sầu Free Advanced also listed a “proprietary” mixture of herbal agents which included Chinese skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) và blachồng catechu (Acacia catechu). Chinese skullcap had been implicated in rare cases of drug induced liver injury, although the association was not completely convincing. The recurrence of injury with a similar latency & pattern of enzyme elevations is very convincing evidence that the nutritional supplement was the likely cause of the episode, but the specific ingredient responsible is somewhat unclear và the injury may have sầu been due khổng lồ a contaminant or misidentified constituent in the proprietary mixture. Current formulations of Move sầu Free products vày not mention Chinese skullcap as an ingredient.
