Information about OxyELITE Pro

OxyELITE Pro is the commercial name for a variety of multi-ingredient nutritional supplements (MINS) marketed for weight loss and body building. 

Liver safety of OxyELITE Pro

In 2013, one of the OxyELITE Pro products called “Super Thermogenic” was withdrawn from use in the United States after it was implicated in more than 50 cases of acute hepatitis including several instances of fatal, acute liver failure.

== Mechanism of action of OxyELITE Pro ==  OxyELITE Pro is the proprietary name of a series of multi-ingredient nutritional supplements that are typically marketed as weight loss, body building, “fat burning” and performance enhancement aids.  Initial ingredients in the products included caffeine and dimethylamylamine (DMAA) which in animal studies led to weight loss.  Small phase 1 studies demonstrated that both blood pressure and pulse were increased with OxyELITE Pro, which was attributed to the effects of DMAA.  In 2013, the FDA banned the use of DMAA in nutritional supplements and the composition of OxyELITE Pro was altered, with removal of DMAA and addition of aegeline, an herbal derivative that was believed to cause weight loss.  Shortly thereafter reports of severe hepatitis were reported in persons taking OxyELITE Pro Super Thermogenic”, some of which were severe enough to warrant emergency liver transplantation and some of which were fatal. 

The drug OxyELITE Pro was withdrawn from the US market

In October 2013, under pressure from the FDA, the sponsor of OxyELITE Pro withdrew it from the market and requested retrieval of products already in distribution.
