Interest in pharmaceutical grade of uridine for lipoatrophy
Apr 6, 2006

Is there any interest in a pharmaceutical grade of uridine, rather than Nucleomaxx, to attempt to reverse lipoatrophy? Seems that since there is a least 1 out there in trial, not yet approved by the FDA, that this would be a more common sense approach. If approved, you would know how much uridine you recieve per dose and would hopefully be covered by insurance. Thank You.

Response from Dr. Henry

There is interest though the design and funding of a well done safety and efficacy study can be a challenge. If any reader knows of other trials underway looking at uridine supplements for lipoatrophy using a product other than Nucleomazz please post! KH
