Patients with type 2 DM who are following will be enrolled into the study. Two visits were scheduled for data collection, physical examination and laboratory testing of the patients: the first prior to initiation of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) administration (baseline visit) and the second at the end of the third month following initiation of ALA (2nd visit).
This prospective, Interventional study will be conducted at Benha university hospital for 3 months. Patients with type 2 DM who are following at the outpatient internal medicine & diabetes Clinics in Benha Univeristy Hospital and are eligible to participate, will be enrolled into the study. Inclusion criteria comprise the following(1) patient's agreement to participate; (2) diabetic peripheral neuropathy diagnosis (3) treatment with alpha lipolic acid (ALA), had to be stable for 3 months during the study.
Two visits were scheduled for data collection, physical examination and laboratory testing of the patients: the first prior to initiation of ALA administration (baseline visit) and the second at the end of the third month following initiation of ALA (2nd visit).

The purpose of the study is to examine if alpha lipoic acid is an effective treatment for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP).
Because of its iron-chelating and antioxidant properities, alpha lipoic acid may be a treatment for geographic atrophy secondary to age-related macular degeneration. There is ample publish...

This is a phase I, single-center, non-randomized, 3+3 dose-escalation study of alpha lipoic acid given during chemotherapy-radiation in HNSCC patients with non-metastatic disease.
The aim of our study is to investigate the effects of a combined treatment of alpha-lipoic acid and myoinositol on clinical, endocrine and metabolic features of women affected by PCOS. The...
Cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity is a serious complication that restricts its utilization in cancer treatment. Rutin and alpha-lipoic acid have antioxidant effectiveness, anti-inflammatory efficacy an...
α-Lipoic acid (also known as thioctic acid) is a natural vitamin-like compound. Lipoic acid contains asymmetrical carbon, which causes the presence of two possible optical isomers (enantiomers): R-li...
New evidence suggests that dysregulation of adipocytokines caused by excess adiposity plays an important role in the pathogenesis of various obesity comorbidities. Our aim in this meta-analysis was to...
This study was aimed to investigate the inhibition effect of thiol-type antioxidants on protein oxidative aggregation caused by free radicals and the underlying mechanisms using six different thiol-ty...
A reduced form of the alpha-lipoic acid, dihydro-alpha-lipoic acid (DHLA) is a potent, naturally occurring antioxidant which can be consumed as food constituent or as supplement at doses up to 600 m...
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.

(9 alpha,11 alpha,13E,15S)-9,11,15-Trihydroxyprost-13-en-1-oic acid (PGF(1 alpha)); (5Z,9 alpha,11,alpha,13E,15S)-9,11,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13-dien-1-oic acid (PGF(2 alpha)); (5Z,9 alpha,11 alpha,13E,15S,17Z)-9,11,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13,17-trien-1-oic acid (PGF(3 alpha)). A family of prostaglandins that includes three of the six naturally occurring prostaglandins. All naturally occurring PGF have an alpha configuration at the 9-carbon position. They stimulate uterine and bronchial smooth muscle and are often used as oxytocics.
A diffuse or multifocal peripheral neuropathy related to the remote effects of a neoplasm, most often carcinoma or lymphoma. Pathologically, there are inflammatory changes in peripheral nerves. The most common clinical presentation is a symmetric distal mixed sensorimotor polyneuropathy. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1334)
A LIPOIC ACID-containing protein that plays the pivotal role in the transfer of methylamine groups and reducing equivalents between the three enzymatic components of the glycine decarboxylase complex.
(11 alpha,13E,15S)-11,15-Dihydroxy-9-oxoprost-13-en-1-oic acid (PGE(1)); (5Z,11 alpha,13E,15S)-11,15-dihydroxy-9-oxoprosta-5,13-dien-1-oic acid (PGE(2)); and (5Z,11 alpha,13E,15S,17Z)-11,15-dihydroxy-9-oxoprosta-5,13,17-trien-1-oic acid (PGE(3)). Three of the six naturally occurring prostaglandins. They are considered primary in that no one is derived from another in living organisms. Originally isolated from sheep seminal fluid and vesicles, they are found in many organs and tissues and play a major role in mediating various physiological activities.
