1 A total of 18 cases of Amanita phalloides intoxication was treated by combined chemotherapy during 1980 and 1981. After attempted primary elimination of the toxin all patients received silibinin as basic therapy mainly by infusion and in two instances orally. 2 In order to evaluate the effect of silibinin therapy a retrospective study of the followed-up case records was made. The cases were arbitrarily classified into three groups according to the severity of liver damage (light, medium and… Expand
Plasmapheresis in the treatment of Amanita phalloides poisoning: II. A review and recommendations.
  • S. Jander, J. Bischoff, B. Woodcock
  • Medicine
  • Therapeutic apheresis : official journal of the International Society for Apheresis and the Japanese Society for Apheresis
  • 2000
TLDR
This review of 14 investigations published over the last 20 years shows that the introduction of detoxification techniques, in particular the use of plasmapheresis, in combination with supportive therapy to prevent the absorption of aminitine toxins into blood, produced a substantial reduction in mortality.

Amanita phalloides poisoning: Mechanisms of toxicity and treatment.
  • Juliana Garcia, V. M. Costa, +4 authors F. Carvalho
  • Medicine
  • Food and chemical toxicology : an international journal published for the British Industrial Biological Research Association
  • 2015
TLDR
The clinical toxicology of A. phalloides is examined, providing the currently available information on the mechanisms of toxicity involved and on the current knowledge on the treatment prescribed against this type of mushrooms, to set the pace to new and improved therapy against these mushrooms. Expand
Acute Liver Failure Caused by Amanita phalloides Poisoning
TLDR
The pathogenesis, clinical features, prognostic indicators, and therapeutic strategies of ALF secondary to ingestion of Amanita phalloides, which represents the most common and deadly cause of mushroom poisoning, are analyzed. Expand
Legalon® SIL: The Antidote of Choice in Patients with Acute Hepatotoxicity from Amatoxin Poisoning
TLDR
Silibinin, a proven antioxidative and anti-inflammatory acting flavonolignan isolated from milk thistle extracts, has been shown to interact with specific hepatic transport proteins blocking cellular amatoxin re-uptake and thus interrupting enterohepatic circulation of the toxin. Expand
Management of maternal Amanita phalloïdes poisoning during the first trimester of pregnancy: a case report and review of the literature.
TLDR
Abortion is not necessarily indicated in maternal poisoning by A. phalloïdes, even in the first trimester of pregnancy. Expand
Treatment of Amatoxin Poisoning: 20-Year Retrospective Analysis
TLDR
Benzylpenicillin (Penicillin G) alone and in association was the most frequently utilized chemotherapy but showed little efficacy and future clinical research should focus on confirming the efficacy of silybin, N-acetylcysteine, and detoxication procedures. Expand
Liver transplantation for severe Amanita phalloides mushroom poisoning.
TLDR
This largest experience with liver transplantation for Amanita poisoning further defines the early clinical and laboratory indications for, and the unique complicating features of, transplantation in this setting. Expand
Treatment of Human Amatoxin Mushroom Poisoning
TLDR
The aim of this article is to steer a course between the distressing and unjustified resignation and the reports of some case histories, where survival is surmised but not proven to be related to the variety of treatment employed. Expand
Prognosis and treatment options in cases of acute liver failure caused by mushroom poisoning due to Amanita phalloides
TLDR
Although N-Acetyl Cysteine and Penicillin-G have proven to be effective therapeutic agents, Orthotopic Liver Transplantation (OLT) or Auxiliary Partial Orthotopy Liver Trans transplantation (APOLT is the only treatment option for most of the cases carrying a poor prognosis. Expand
Use of Amifostine, a Novel Cytoprotective, in α-Amanitin Poisoning
TLDR
Whether amifostine is an effective postexposure therapy for α-amanitin, the primary lethal toxin in Amanita phalloides, is determined and no survival benefit was seen with cumulative doses between 250 and 500 mg/kg; however, higher doses may result in subsequent toxicity and decreased survival.

TLDR
The activity of RNA polymerase activated by Mn(2+) and ammonium sulphate is greatly impaired in liver nuclei isolated from mice poisoned with alpha-amanitin, and is inhibited by the addition of the same toxin in vitro. Expand

Effects of Cephalothin and Penicillin G on Platelet Function in Vitro
TLDR
Evidence that the antibiotics become bound to platelets is the finding that platelets incubated with the antibiotics and resuspended in fresh media showed less response to aggregating agents compared with control platelets. Expand
Silybin inhibition of amatoxin uptake in the perfused rat liver.
TLDR
Silybin dihemisuccinate, in a concentration of 0.4 mg/ml, almost completely inhibited the uptake of an amatoxin by the perfused rat liver, which may become important in the therapy of human Amanita poisoning. Expand
Mechanism of the stimulation of RNA synthesis in rat liver nuclei by silybin.
TLDR
The results support former findings that silybin stimulates RNA synthesis in rat livers in vivo and in hepatocytes and the mechanism of this stimulation was elucidated by experiments with isolated RNA polymerases. Expand
