Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) in Trauma and Disease

DMSO was first isolated as a chemical compound by a Russian chemist in 1866, and it proved to be an excellent solvent for many years before its remarkable biological and medical properties were discovered.

DMSO is an extremely effective agent that has a wide range of applications for plants, animals, and humans. Its versatility has led to its popularity, with tens of thousands of articles written about it in the scientific community.

Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO): Its Effects in Trauma and Disease reviews the primary clinical applications of DMSO in humans, which have been corroborated by experiments conducted on animals. These include its role in disorders such as osteoarthritis, interstitial cystitis, gastrointestinal inflammatory changes, scleroderma, respiratory distress, myasthenia gravis, cardiac disease, traumatic brain injury, and Alzheimer’s disease.

DMSO's effects on pain, cancer, stroke, and spinal cord injury are also delved into in this book. Furthermore, the book explains how its chemical structure is able to react and deactivate toxic molecules such as those generated by DNA damage, free radical formation, inflammation, oxidation, and infection.

For this first-of-its-kind study, we compiled and evaluated facts from the scientific literature about DMSO's biological, chemical, and medical effects.

Masterfully crafted, this book offers comprehensible scientific explanations that are sure to captivate both healthcare professionals and the millions of DMSO users worldwide for a variety of treatments with or without doctor recommendations.
