Journal of clinical gastroenterology 2010 Sep; 44 Suppl 1: S54-7
Use of herbal remedies (HR) has increased in the general population, particularly among patients with chronic diseases. Marketing of HR is usually regulated by imperfect standards, and the reporting of HR-related adverse reactions has increased. Studies assessing prevalence of HR use among patients with liver/biliary tract disorders are limited and no data are available in Italy. Aims of this study were to assess the prevalence of HR use, the clinical and demographic variables of HR users, and to evaluate their safety perception about HR.
