Update 7/15/22: I should have noted that the trial is using Lithium Aspartate, not Lithium Orotate. I e-mailed the doctor asking if Lithium Orotate would be as good and he said it should not make a difference. There were some rat studies linking Lithium Orotate with cancer so they went with Aspartate.
So... I might be getting ahead of my skis here, but this is kind of curious:
Dr. Thomas Guttuso, Professor of Neurology, University at Buffalo is conducting the "Effects of Lithium Therapy on Blood-based Therapeutic Targets in Parkinson's Disease" trial clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show... Estimated Study Completion Date : July 1, 2022
Dr. Thomas Guttuso, Professor of Neurology, University at Buffalo also has a book coming out.
The Book, "The Promise of Lithium: How an Over-the-Counter Supplement May Prevent and Slow Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease", is currently scheduled to be available on Amazon in October 2022. promiseoflithium.com/
I'm not saying the trial was a success. I don't know. But... I am going to keep taking my 15 mg of Lithium Orotate.
