NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:


The aim of this parallel-group, triple-blind, placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial was to investigate the effect of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) on uterine wound healing after primary cesarean section (CS).

To do so, 102 women undergoing pre-labor primary CS were randomized to receive either oral ALA (Thiotacid® film-coated tablet 600 mg, twice daily) or a placebo twice daily for 6 weeks after CS.

Results showed that twenty (39.2%) women in the treatment group and ten (19.6%) controls had no niche (p = 0.03). The absolute and relative risk reduction of forming a niche was 19.61% and 24.39%, respectively. The number of women needed to treat was five to avoid one niche formation. ALA use was associated with gastrointestinal upset in only three participants; however, none of the women withdrew during the study.
