Abstract CONTEXT: Spirulina platensis is extracted from an alga and theoretically has many good effects on the majority of the organs. There is not any published clinical trial on humans. OBJECTIVE: The evaluation of the efficacy of spiruline in chronic viral liver disease. DESIGN: Double blind, randomised clinical trial. SETTING: Secondary care university hospital. PATIENTS: 24 patients with chronic viral liver disease, treated with spiruline or placebo for one month. OUTCOME MEASUREMENT: Aminotransferases diminution and the modification of a general state score self-evaluated by the patient on an analogic visual scale. RESULTS: A modification of the aminotransferases level in the detriment of the spiruline treated group has been found (p = 0.036 for ALAT, p = 0.017 for ASAT), and not at the level of the general state score (p = 0.30). CONCLUSION: Despite the little number of patients, significant results not favouring spiruline have been found.
