    Arrow Allopurinol helps prevent football injuries

    We can imagine that football clubs might soon be asking their costly football players to take allopurinol, a medicine for gout.

    This is very interesting. One of the biggest worries with any high intensity sport or exercise is the creation of free radical such as peroxides and superoxides which damage cells by basically stealing electrons. If the bodies manufacture of some of these ( not all, you actually need a little) can be controlled with something having as benign side effects as allopurinol it could be a prophylactic to many types of cellular damage. I want to look into this more. The cardiac researchers at Cleveland Clinic have been studying heart disease and MI markers such as myeloperoxidase, that can be much earlier predictors of these conditions than even hs CRP or hs Tnt. If so its possible to administer something like a purinol early enough to prevent hospitalization for more people and that is one extremely effective way to lower health care costs. Ok lecture over lol
