Abstract

Published data on the efficacy and safety of using acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) in gerontological practice are analyzed and the spectrum of biochemical activity and mechanism of action are discussed. The profile and specificity of the actions of ALC are assessed, as is the potential for combining ALC with other drugs. Results from preclinical and clinical trials of the use of ALC in world clinical practice are analyzed. ALC has been shown to have high efficacy and a wide spectrum of actions.
