Due to long-term side effect of NSAIDs drugs such as phenylbutazone, there is an
increased to find alternative treatments for osteoarthritis.
Explanation about that proves new Study·s results between oxidative stress and
progressive cartilage degeneration.
The feed additive Cipomeg® of the company Greencoat Ud., contains extracts of
artichoke, bitter melon, blueberry, rose hips, hops, dandelion, and vanilla. Due to
the antioxidant properties it should have a positive effect on lameness in horses
Aim of the study, was compare to the effectiveness of 4 ehrenie lame horses. The
analysis from measured low phenylbutazone and the 14-day gift from Cipomeg®,
became under calculation from asymmetry-index, were analyzed by kinematic
measurements on the treadmill. Between the mess day's by the analysis of
variance (ANOVA), for repeated measurements. We found no statistically
significant differences in the asymmetry-indices.
By the results of this study, is the theory from Cipomeg® or from the low dosed
phenylbutazone an in fluencies on them stance phase lameness, we cannot
confirmed the hypothetic.
lt thereby had to do continuing studies in the horse practice about usual doses of
phenylbutazone to be under examination, whether not on Ionger view a gift of
higher dosage, about Cipomeg®, could Iead to a comparable pain relief.
The appointment of the inflammation parametric - the active substance prove in
the blood or synovia, would allow another examination about the impact of
