The Gibson Brief was a randomised trial conducted on the treatment of arthritis with a lipid extract of Perna canaliculus:
Over the past 27 years, the MacLab group, a shareholder of Pharmalink International Limited, has employed the services of leading international research individuals and institutions to identify and isolate the active components within green lipped mussel.
Today the fruits of that long term project are realised in the product we know as Lyprinol. Please look through some of the results below on research that has been completed on our product.
Over the counter (OTC) oral remedies for arthritis and rheumatism: how effective are they?
Many studies have reported that certain lipids from fish and other marine sources can have a beneficial effect on our overall health when they should be part of our diet on a routine basis.
A clinical trial conducted by Asthma New Zealand and recently published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, points to a trend suggesting that children suffering from asthma may improve their quality of life by taking oil extract derived from Perna canaliculus called PCSO-524® (Lipid fractions of the New Zealand Green lipped mussel) (Tradename Lyprinol®).
The efficacy and safety of an oral standardised lipid extract of New Zealand green lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) marketed as Lyprinol ® was assessed as maintenance therapy for children with moderate asthma. A total of 71 children aged 6 to 13 years were enrolled in a 16-week, single centre, double-masked, placebo- controlled, parallelgroup trial and randomly assigned to receive either Lyprinol or placebo (2 capsules twice daily). Patients were maintained on as-needed betaagonist therapy and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) throughout the study.

The anti-inflammatory properties of Lyprinol® have been examined by research scientists at RMIT University, Adelaide University & the University Of Queensland. According to this research, Lyprinol® is an effective anti-inflammatory agent (Sir Professor Michael Whitehouse).
