‘Pycnogenol is a great example of a natural plant-based product which may be the subject of extensive clinical study,’ said ABC Founder and Executive Director Mark Blumenthal. ‘ABC acknowledges Horphag Analysis, the manufacturer, because of its singular focus and for its dedication to funding continued scientific trials to investigate and document the helpful role Pycnogenol may have in selfcare and health care.’ Horphag Study of Geneva Switzerland invests about $1.5 million annually in new scientific and clinical research on the special extract. ‘The ABC monograph on Pycnogenol presents probably the most comprehensive and detailed monographs ever published on a dietary component,’ said Victor Ferrari, CEO of Horphag Research. ‘Consumers, health professionals, and industry members are searching for comprehensive and evidence-based information alike, and as such, the monograph has an excellent detailed view of the versatility of this natural item.’ The monograph is released in three parts: The full monograph, a clinical overview containing condensed information from the monograph, and a consumer/patient information sheet, consisting of essential information for consumer education about the accountable use of the product.Yunjun Yang and colleagues from First Affiliated Medical center of Wenzhou Medical University in China quantified the adjustments of infarction primary and remote areas after unilateral middle cerebral artery occlusion using apparent diffusion coefficient ideals and found that apparent diffusion coefficient values at remote areas varied combined with the transformation of supratentorial infarction primary, suggesting that the phenomenon of diaschisis existed at the remote regions. Thus, obvious diffusion coefficient diffusion and ideals weighted imaging may be used to detect early cerebral infarction. These findings were published in the Neural Regeneration Analysis .
