Lipolysis News

Every week new articles and publications about Injection-Lipolysis/Lipodissolve

Nearly every week new articles are published in medical journals...

Here an example:
The publication of study results from a group of physicians (Reeds et al.) under surveillance of the FDA and in the name of the ASAPS foundation has led to a number of commentaries and letter to the editors in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal (please see our News from March 28, 2013) until today. From the side of the NETWORK-Lipolysis Dr. Franz Hasengschwandtner and Prof. Karl-Josef Gundermann have contributed to this vivid discussion. Background of the discussion are questions about the mode of action in Lipodissolve, but not only:
In 2005 already started a controversy about the agent of Injection-Lipolysis. One side is convinced that only Deoxycholic Acid (DC) is the agent, while on the other hand Phosphatidylcholine (PC) has been considered as a second important agent towards IL. NETWORK scientists are convinced that PC is important for the fat melting process. The following authors contributed to the actual discussion: Diane Duncan, Brent Tanner, Leroy Young and Franz Hasengschwandtner/Karl-Josef Gundermann.
A second point of discussion is the question, if DC has a cell selective ability (is stronger active on adipocytes than on other cell types) Several studies show controversial results. It can be suspected that this question is influenced by financial interests, as some companies are working for an approval of a DC-alone agent in Injection-Lipolysis.
