Impact of Snail and Mussel Consumption on Hydroxyproline Levels and Clinical Parameters in Arthritis Patients

Subhajit Maiti | Sudip K. Banerjee [2]


Abstract: This study evaluates the serum hydroxyproline levels in arthritis patients compared to individuals who consume snails and mussels. It involved 100 participants, with 50 having arthritis (Group A) and 50 non-arthritis (Group B) individuals consuming snails and mussels. The biomarker especially hydroxyproline (HP) and clinical parameters viz. haemoglobin (Hb), total cholesterol (TC) and random blood glucose (RBG) were also estimated for group A and group B separately. The biomarker HP (pg/ml), TC and RBG (mg/dl) were significantly (P<0.0001) decreased in group B (1.1 ? 0.2, 149.4 ? 18.3 and 117.5 ? 8.4) when compared to group A (2.3 ? 0.4, 281.3 ? 58.6 and 188.0 ? 54.0). The Hb (%) was significantly (P<0.0001) increased in group B (12.2 ? 0.6) when compared to group A (11.5 ? 1.0). Key findings include significant differences in hydroxyproline levels and other clinical parameters between the two groups, suggesting potential benefits of these natural products in managing arthritis.
