  • Description

α-Lipoic Acid, a natural product, is reported to have antioxidative property.
IC50 value:
In vitro: The effects of α-Lipoic Acid on thioacetamide-induced liver fibrosis in rats and the possible underlying mechanisms in hepatic stellate cells in vitro was examined. Co-administration of α-Lipoic Acid to rats chronically treated with TAA inhibited the development of liver cirrhosis, as indicated by reductions in cirrhosis incidence, hepatic fibrosis, and AST/ALT activities [3].
In vivo: In the study on the antioxidative activity of α-Lipoic Acid, the result showed that on the micronutrient functions of α-Lipoic Acid may be more as an effector of important cellular stress response pathways that ultimately influence endogenous cellular antioxidant levels and reduce proinflammatory mechanisms [1]. α-Lipoic Acid exerts antioxidant effects in biological systems through ROS quenching but also via an action on transition metal chelation. Dietary supplementation with α-Lipoic Acid has been successfully employed in a variety of in vivo models of disease associated with an imbalance of redox status: diabetes and cardiovascular diseases [2].
