Alternative Hepatitis C Treatments

Alternative Hepatitis C Treatments

The therapeutic goals of Natural treatment for Hepatitis C are as follows: Decrease iral load Normalize liver enzyme levels. Enhance/regulate immune system function. Strengthen and promote healthy liver function. Protect the liver, prevent further damage. Virological response; i.e. viral clearance, viral reduction or elimination of the virus. Starve the virus by limiting levels of iron. Optimizing cellular levels of glutathione in the body, making detoxification of the liver possible and enhancing the immune system. Stimulate regeneration of the damaged liver cells. Use of antioxidants to combat the effects of free-radicals generated by the virus. Reduce inflammation. Slow viral replication. Replace all of the inflammation-damaged liver cells. Regulate immune function/prevent auto-immune problems. Cancer preventative measures. Reverse fibrosis to prevent and improve cirrhosis

Other Species Of Artemisia Used In Traditional Chinese Medicine

According to a national survey of the medicinal plants of China, more than sixty Artemisia species are used in different areas for certain ailments such as inflammation, liver and stomach disorders and gynaecological problems (Table 1). The leaves of more than ten species are used for the preparation of moxas (see below). A number of Artemisia species are used as choleretic, anti-inflammatory and diuretic agents in the treatment of hepatitis. Two of these are A. scoparia and A. capillaris and are known by the same Chinese name as Yin Chen. Both species contain essential oils, flavones and coumarins. A flavone, capillarisin, the major constituent of A. capillaris, together with two new stereoisomeric constituents, capillartemisin A and B, showed choleretic effects in experiment studies. The coumarin derivative sco-parone isolated from both species had a preventative effect on carbon tetrachloride or galactosamine-induced hepatotoxicity in hepatocyte cell cultures, (Hikino, 1985, Kiso...

Genetic engineering is used to produce renewable resources for industry

Progress is being made in the attempts to use plants for the production of human monoclonal antibodies (e.g., for curing intestinal cancer). Antibodies against bacteria causing caries have been produced in plants, and it is feasible that they could be added to toothpaste. To make such a project economically viable, it would be necessary to produce very large amounts of antibody proteins at low cost. Plants would be suitable for this purpose. There also has been success in using transgenic plants for the production of oral vaccines. The fodder plant lucerne (Medicago sativa) was transformed to produce an oral vaccine against foot and mouth disease. Oral vaccines for hepatitis B virus have been produced in potatoes and lupines, and a vaccine for rabies has been produced in tomatoes. Although these experiments are still at an initial experimental phase, they open up the possibility of vaccination by ingesting plant material (e.g., fodder for animals or fruit...

Preface to the series

Global warming and global travel are among the factors resulting in the spread of such infectious diseases as malaria, tuberculosis, hepatitis B and HIV. All these are not well controlled by the present drug regimes. Antibiotics too are failing because of bacterial resistance. Formerly, less well known tropical diseases are reaching new shores. A whole range of illnesses, for example cancer, occur worldwide. Advances in molecular biology, including methods of in vitro testing for a required medical activity give new opportunities to draw judiciously upon the use and research of traditional herbal remedies from around the world. The re-examining of the herbal medicines must be done in a multi-disciplinary manner.

Etiology And Epidemiology

Some research also suggests that there is a link between the recombinant hepatitis B vaccine and increased risk of developing MS.10 Studies of pregnancy in women with MS also suggest a role of hormones in the disease. Of the women studied, 75 showed a distinct shift from a Th2 cytokine bias during pregnancy to a Th1 cytokine bias postpartum.11


Hydroxymatairesinol Lignan

Schisandra chinensis is used in chronic persisent hepatitis. The active principles are various biphenylcotenoic lignans called waweizisu C, wuweizichun B, schisantherin A,B,C,D which all lower SGPT levels in chronic viral hepatitis. Lignans of Phyllanthus niruri deserve special mention. They have antiviral and hepatoprotective properties. Phyllanthin, hypophyllanthin and isontetralin are major lignans (Fig. 5.252).

Clinical studies

Hepatitis B One human study, reported improved liver function in people with hepatitis B after taking a combination herbal preparation containing T.officinale, Artemisia capillaries Thunb (Asteraceae), Taraxacum mongolicum Hand-Mazz. (Asteraceae), Plantago ovata Forssk. (Plantaginaceae), Cephalanoplos segetum (Bunge) Kitam (Asteraceae), Hedyotis diffusa Willd. (Rubiaceae), Chrysanthemum indicum Linn. (Asteraceae), Smilax glabra Roxb. (Smilaceae), Astragalus membranaceus (Fisch.ex Link.) Bunge (Fabaceae), Salvia miltiorrhizae Bunge. (Lamiaceae), Polygonum orientalis L. (Polygalaceae), Paeonia alba L. (Ranunculaceae), and Polygonatum sibiricum F. Daelaroche. (Convallariaceae). Since polyherbal preparation was used in the study, the possible benefits of T.officinale need to be explored.


Agaricus (Agaricus blazei, Agaricus subrufescens) has traditionally been used for the prevention of cancer, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis, and chronic hepatitis. It has anticancer, antioxidant, anti-diabetes, hepatoprotective, and immune-stimulating activity.

Proteomic approaches

An immediate extension from the original application to study interactions between two known proteins was the identification of novel potential interactions at a large-scale, using either cDNA libraries fused to AD (library approach) or full length cDNAs as both bait and prey (matrix approach). These two-hybrid variants have been applied to diverse biological systems. Examples of the matrix approach extend from limited protein number in Drosophila (Finley and Brent 1994) to covering the whole proteome for the vaccinia virus (McCraith et al. 2000) and the baker's yeast (Uetz et al. 2000, Ito et al. 2001). The use of library screenings in a wide-proteome approach was initiated with the T7 phage (Bartel et al. 1996) and continued with the hepatitis C virus (Flajolet et al. 2000) and the bacteria Helicobacter pylori (Rain et al. 2001). Although the use of two-hybrid system is already a routine for Arabidopsis researchers, no global interactome analysis has been reported to date for plant...
