Abstract

The authors report their preliminary results of a study of the possible therapeutic activity of a titrated extract of Centella asiatica in chronic hepatic disorders. Early results are encouraging, especially from a histological point of view, where improvement in the criteria evaluated was noted in 5 of the 12 patients treated for the longest time. These results have to be assessed in a critical manner until confirmation is obtained by complementary studies.
