'Medical Food' Bests Ibuprofen in Chronic Low Back Pain

Theramine, a "medical food" containing an amino acid blend (AAB), significantly improves chronic low back pain and reduces inflammation compared with low-dose ibuprofen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), or a combination of these 2 treatments, results of a new study show. This is the second study looking at theramine in low back pain.

"Now we have done 2 multicenter, double-blind trials showing the effectiveness of theramine, not only on pain but also inflammation, and we are not seeing significant side effects," commented study author David S. Silver, MD, president and chief operating officer, Targeted Medical Pharma Inc, Los Angeles, California.

As a "medical food," theramine does not require US Food and Drug Administration preapproval; however, everything in the product must be GRAS (generally recognized as safe). "The claims [of a medical food] must be specifically for the nutritional management of a disease when a distinct nutritional requirement that cannot be met through regular diet is recognized." The claims of medical foods must be supported by clinical studies, unlike dietary supplements or nutraceuticals, which can't make disease claims and don't require clinical studies.

Systematic review authors with financial conflicts of interest are more likely to report favorably about the effects of neuraminidase inhibitors on the prevention and treatment of influenza than authors with no financial conflicts, according to an article published in the October 7 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Although previous studies have pointed to author financial conflicts of interest influencing the "production and synthesis of scientific evidence," this is the first study to apply specifically to neuraminidase inhibitors.
