In the 2 years since that report was prepared, there has been further debate about this controversial therapy. Our group's conclusions were based on a meta-analysis (7) of trials appraising solutions enriched with branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). In aggregate, patients receiving BCAA were more… CONTINUE READING
