    Post: Black Cohosh Hepatoxicity

    Posted by Michael D. Corbett, Ph.D. on 11/02/07

    A Swiss research group at the University of Basel recently
    reported their results of studies designed to investigate
    liver toxicity by black cohosh. Their publication in the
    October 12, 2007 issue of Cellular Molecular Life Sciences
    described the results of their studies in rats, and led
    them to conclude: "The results are compatible with
    idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity as observed in patients
    treated with Cimucifuga extracts." The abstract of this
    paper is available on PubMed as PMID 17928951.
