The term lupoSporin is used to describe the drug used to treat the skin disorder luposis.
It is a compound of the amino acid lysine and it can be extracted from lupines.
It is used in the treatment of the skin condition.
In the UK, it has been prescribed as an anti-inflammatory drug to treat rheumatoid arthritis and as an antitumor agent to treat psoriasis.
It has also been used to combat inflammatory bowel disease.
However, it can also be used to help with other conditions, such as cystic fibrosis.
“It is commonly prescribed to treat inflammatory bowel disorder and psorias, but it can have an effect on other conditions as well,” said Professor Tom Hulshof from the University of Adelaide.
“There are also many studies in the UK and elsewhere showing that it can help with psoria.”
The benefits are not always clear.
It can reduce pain, but also the side effects can be very severe.
“In the longer term, lupinsporin could have potential for treating Crohn’s disease.”
Professor Hulscoh said the drug was generally prescribed as a drug for treating irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis, but there were few data on its effectiveness in Crohn´s disease.
“We know it helps with ulceration of the small intestine, but we do not know if it is helpful in CrochD patients, which are at greater risk of ulcerations, so we don´t know whether it works for Crohn disease or not,” he said.
“However, we have no evidence to suggest that it is any better than placebo.”
Professor Tom Hurd from the Australian National University said it was important to look at whether the drug could improve bowel health.
“This could potentially be very significant,” he told AAP.
“I would encourage patients to be cautious about using it, as there are a number of studies showing that lupolsporin may have adverse effects on bowel health.”
He said more research was needed on lupinosporin in relation to Crohnís disease.
He said it would be best if people could avoid lupin, lucoform and lupostimin because of their potentially serious side effects.
“People should be cautious, especially if they are allergic to any of the drugs that are on the market, including lupidsporin,” he added.
