Presenter: Burt Berkson, MD, PhD

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) sits in the intersection of the cytoplasm and the mitochondrion, glycolysis and the Krebs cycle, and anaerobic and aerobic energy metabolism. In this presentation Dr. Berkson discusses the biology of ALA and its relationship to the mitochondrion, and its potential use in treating severe liver damage, diabetes, and various cancers.
