MEDLINE (MEDlars onLINE) is the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) premier bibliographic database covering the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, and the preclinical sciences. The MEDLINE file contains bibliographic citations and author abstracts from approximately 3,900 current biomedical journals published in the United States and 70 foreign countries. The file contains approximately 9 million records dating back to 1966. Coverage is world wide, but most records are from English-languages sources or have English abstracts.

If you have specific medical questions, we encourage you to consult your personal physician. This website and/or the products represented in this website are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Because glutathione is not a drug, no medical claims can be made regarding it's ability to cure or treat any disease. We wish to point out, however, that in a landmark decision on Friday, January 15, 1999 which involved the the American Preventive Medical Association (APMA) and co-plaintiffs Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw (authors of the best seller, "Life Extension, a Practical Scientific Approach") versus the United States, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and found the health claim rules imposed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) unconstitutional and in violation of the Administrative Procedeure Act. The court instructed the FDA to define "significant scientific agreement" for health claims on dietary supplement labels, and instructed the FDA to allow the use of disclaimers on labels rather than to suppress these claims outright. The court further held that four FDA Final rules (prohibiting certain nutrient disease relationship claims) invalid under the first Amendment to the Constitution.
