Scientific publications

The following list contains important scientific publications that describe the mechanism of the activation of the unspecific immune system with DCA - and as well the practical use of deoxycholic acid as a medicament. Among them you will find clinical tests as well as small reports and new findings in theory.

Articles and reports around DCA

This area is in progress.

1) DCA in Niuhuang (schisandra chinensis)
Theses days some other groups of scientists start to investigate the real function of DCA in our body. One example is a cancer research institute in USA that stumbled over the use of the herbal medicine schisandra chinensis in China that is known to heal inflammations and uplift the immune system. DCA is the main medical constituent agent!
