I saw the abstacts. I read review-like articles also because they help me to
form a complete picture. I'll do my own search in addition to those studies.

BTW, would you like to point to some good site about Pantethine, besides

WASHINGTON - A health products company warned on Wednesday that some

of its dietary supplements

may be contaminated with bacteria that can cause blindness.

The Master's Miracle Inc., based in Minneapolis, said its Fortified

Mineral Neutralizer and Ultra Fortified

Mineral Neutralizer dietary supplements are at risk of bacterial

contamination. According to the Food and

Drug Administration, some Master's Miracle distributors have been

promoting the use of the supplements

in people's eyes. If contaminated product comes in contact with the

eyes, it could lead to serious injury,

including blindness.

The FDA also said the supplements do not meet FDA sterility standards

for eye products, and should not

be used or marketed that way.

The supplements come in 8-ounce, 20-ounce and 1-gallon size

containers.

For more information, consumers can call the company at

1-763-493-3200 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT.

Looks like quite the versatile product: treats eye diseases, and can
also be used to clean the garage floor.

Unlike pantethine, which safely, completely outperforms statins with no
adverse effects ever reported.

It won't clean anything, though.
