Industry junks St John’s wort ADHD study

Adhd1A study that found St John’s wort was ineffective in positively affecting children suffering from attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been heavily criticized by industry for being badly designed. Industry has criticized the study and disputed the researchers claim that St John’s wort is one of the most common treatments for ADHD among children.

It has also been criticized for subjecting St John’s wort to inappropriate, pharmaceutical-style testing when the herb also known as Hypericum perforatum does not function as a drug.“Why wasn’t a gold standard [double blind, placebo-controlled] used to do a proper comparison?” Daniel Fabricant, PhD, vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs at the Natural Products Association (NPA) told NutraIngredients-USA.com.

“If they’re going to set up a drug trial then they should go all out with it. We all know St. John’s wort isn’t a drug, and traditionally isn’t used or intended to be used as a drug.”

St John’s wort’s most commonly studied benefit is in the relief of mild-to-moderate depression and anxiety.

“It’s commonly used and has shown efficacy for mild-to-moderate depression in more appropriately designed trials,” Fabricant said. “But if you are going to treat it like a drug in a trial, then all the bells and whistles have to be there to accurately tell the whole story. In this instance if the gold standard intervention showed the same lack of effect, would it have been reported that the gold standard didn’t work for ADHD?”

He added: “It certainly would have nailed home the lack of quality in this study and made it significantly more difficult to publish and call it peer-reviewed academic medical science.”

Usage and quality

The Mayland-based American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) questioned the quality of the St John’s wort used in the trial and disputed the researcher’s assertion that St John’s wort is commonly used to treat ADHD among young people.

I don’t believe that this test material would pass muster if the proposal was submitted to NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) today because something as basic as ensuring the quality through the duration of the trial was not assured,” said Steven Dentali, PhD, AHPA’s chief scienceofficer and past chairperson of NCCAM’s Product Quality Working Group.

AHPA president, Michael McGuffin, said he knew of no manufacturers marketing St John’s wort at children.

“It’s an out-of-the-ordinary, rare use. It might be a use that some mom thinks makes sense,” he said.

The randomized and placebo-controlled trial was published on June 11 in the Journal of the American Medical Association and involved 54 children ages 6 to 17 years.

Half were given St John’s wort, while the other half were given a placebo and no significant difference was found between the two groups in improving the symptoms of ADHD.

Oxytocin and depression – gay letter

Gay_cactusI came out to my family and friends when I was 23. After 5 years of lying, it felt good! Great actually. My parents, (life long Republicans!) were pretty good about it too. Apparently they suspected I was gay, not so much because I acted gay, I don’t really, but because all I ever brought home were handsome buff guys from soccer practice, or track meets, never ever girls. Conservative but loving parents they waited (against all hope) that they were wrong rather than confront me. My stupid old Grandfather was a whole other story but I won’t go into that!
I also came out because I couldn’t handle the constant lying. At the end of the day, like my parents, I’m a fairly conservative guy; monogamous by nature and all of the lying was decaying my personal code of ethics. Furthermore, all of the compartmentalization necessary to maintain the lies was a lot of work. I also thought coming out would give me a better chance of finding landing a partner. One of my favorite pastimes in trigonometry class was daydreaming about Mr. Right.
As your average garden variety gay guy will tell you, finding Mr. Right in the “gay world” isn’t so easy. Oh, it’s real easy if you like the flakey, lispy, effeminate types, but those people turn me off, big time. I gravitate to the straighter types. My father always used to say that water seeks it’s own level so maybe it’s just the potential of camaraderie that the straighter guys sensed? It could also be that I’m shorter and slighter than average, which I may be attractive to alpha type guys? Whatever.
I eventually found a great guy and entered into a monogamous relationship that lasted about three years. Then one day Bill ended it by reason of, get this, I was getting too muscular and I threatened his masculinity. He said, “Kittens grow into cats.” Irony of ironies, he was the Tom cat, walking the fence line in every alleyway in town. I’m not the brightest bulb on the tree but that excuse was too simplistic, too pat. I think the truth of the matter is that his oxytocin was just wearing thin. It does that. That’s life. So, I’m back on the market again.
The dating scene hasn’t changed, even a little bit. I meet guys everyday; at Starbucks, the gym, any and everywhere, but they all seem like sluts, guys looking for “hit and run” sex. Not my scene. I want a man I can stick by and who will stick by me. A mainstream guy who happens to be gay. That’s all. Where can I meet a regular type guy who actually produces this bonding hormone I’m reading about called oxytocin?

St. John’s Wort cancer treatment heads to Phase III trial

Hy Biopharma cancer treatment heads to Phase III trial
The company developed a cancer drug based on a substance found in St. John’s Wort.

Gali Weinreb 27 May 08   14:08

US-Israeli start-up Hy Biopharma Inc., which has been almost anonymous in the local market until now, announced that it plans to shortly begin Phase III clinical trials of its cancer drug. The company’s product, HBP-347, is based on patents held by the Weizmann Institute of Science and New York University (NYU) and based on hypericin.
 

Hy Biopharma science advisory board director Dr. Gad Lavie, who invented the company’s technology, said that the company had kept a low profile because the product was brought through to the Phase II clinical trial by a US company, Vimerex, which no longer exists.
