Conclusion We live in toxic world. References Haas, E. Tierra, M. Saller In a Cochrane review of 18 randomized clinical studies assessing use of milk thistle versus placebo or no intervention in patients with alcoholic or hepatitis B or C virus liver disease, milk thistle had no significant effects on mortality, complications of liver disease, or liver histology. Liver-related mortality was significantly reduced by milk thistle when all trials were assessed relative risk [RR], 0.
Rambaldi In some trials, a reduction in serum transaminases was demonstrated but with no effect on liver histology or clinical progression. Ferenci , Mayer , Saller Symptoms related to biliary retention resolved faster in 1 subsequent trial, but with no effect on quality-of-life measures.

El-Kamary One small, open-label study in viral hepatitis demonstrated a reduction in viral load with high-dose intravenous IV administration of silibinin. Yang The Hepatitis C Antiviral Long-Term Treatment against Cirrhosis trial assessed the long-term use of silymarin in 1, patients with advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis after peginterferon and ribavirin therapy had failed.
Use of silymarin was associated with less fibrosis as measured by the Ishak fibrosis score, but this association was not noted for clinical outcome measures. Freedman The American Association for Study of Liver Disease AASLD practice guidelines for primary biliary cirrhosis and primary biliary cholangitis state that the addition of silymarin to ursodeoxycholic acid provided no additional benefit. Lindor , Lindor A meta-analysis evaluated English and Chinese randomized placebo-controlled trials from to December to determine the safety and efficacy of silymarin as monotherapy and combination therapy for treatment of chronic hepatitis B.
However, when silymarin was combined with these agents, serum indices and hepatic markers were reduced.

Although the majority of studies were of poor quality, the positive synergistic effect is an important finding that can help inform future clinical studies. Wei In patients with hepatitis C, beneficial effects have not been noted with use of silymarin. In a multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, patients with chronic hepatitis C and elevated ALT levels who were unsuccessfully treated with interferon, silymarin mg or mg 3 times daily for 24 weeks did not significantly reduce ALT levels.
Fried In a study of children 5 to 16 years of age with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, silymarin given for 12 weeks improved fatty liver infiltration, liver function tests, and triglyceride levels; however, LDL and HDL cholesterol levels were not altered. Famouri Milk thistle may be useful in acute hepatotoxicity due to amatoxin poisoning from ingestion of Amanita phallides or other Aminata mushrooms.
Mechanisms include saturating receptor sites on liver cell membranes before the alpha-faloidine and alpha-amanitin toxins can bind and enter the cell. Mengs Blood transfusions are the cornerstone of treatment for patients with thalassemia. In turn, patients can develop iron overload, leading to oxidative stress and organ damage. Moayedi Esfahani Milk thistle has been suggested to be an iron chelator and has been evaluated in thalassemia for its ability to mitigate these effects.
Neopterin, a marker of cellular immune system activation, and TNF-alpha were decreased in both groups after silymarin therapy, whereas production of interferon-gamma and IL-4 were increased. No adverse effect on frequency or function of immune cells was observed. These data indicate recovery of immune status and cytokine production. Gharagozloo Treatment was well tolerated with no reported adverse effects. Darvishi-Kherzi Additionally, varicocelized rats receiving silymarin had higher testosterone levels and a larger percentage of sperm with nuclear maturity compared with varicocelized rats not receiving treatment.

Moshtaghion A dose of mg of silymarin 3 times daily has been suggested for hepatic cirrhosis. Flaig , Ramasamy A preparation consisting of mL of boiling water poured over 3. Blumenthal Consumption of silymarin in the form of tea may not be effective, as silymarin is poorly soluble in water. Awang Deep , Greenlee Caution should be used in pregnant and breastfeeding women. In vitro and animal studies suggest potentially beneficial effects with milk thistle in pregnancy. In a study of rats receiving ethanol during specific weeks of the gestational period, coadministration of silymarin with ethanol resulted in no deficits in spatial working memory in rats on postnatal day 60, suggesting silymarin provided a protective effect against alcohol-induced learning issues.
Neese In a study of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from preeclamptic women, silibinin inhibited nuclear factor kappa B activation and production of inflammatory cytokines. Giorgi Milk thistle may possess galactagogue effects by increasing prolactin levels. Dietz A study evaluated the efficacy and safety of silymarin to promote milk production in 50 women who had elected to stop breastfeeding because their infants did not consume the milk.
Milk production was enhanced with no change to its chemical composition. Di Pierro Antiretrovirals: Milk thistle may reduce the efficacy of protease inhibitors, integrase inhibitors, and non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors. Caution and close monitoring is warranted if using these agents concomitantly with milk thistle.
