Technically speaking, BALCO is extinct, but Victor Conte is a free man and still running a business called "Scientific Nutrition for Advanced Conditioning" or "SNAC." After serving a four-month prison sentence prior to pleading guilty in 2005, he now sells various supplements and vitamins. Patrick Arnold and Greg Anderson each served a three-month jail sentence after pleading guilty with Anderson serving an additional three-month house arrest sentence. Recently Anderson was incarcerated again after being found in contempt of court for refusing to testify about Barry Bonds and Gary Sheffield’s use of banned steroids. [14] BALCO is not completely dead however; on the SNAC website, Conte has BALCO apparel for sale. [15]

What about nutritional supplements and herbs?
Some complementary and alternative therapies (CAMS) have been suggested to help prevent or control liver damage. The complementary therapy that has been researched and used most frequently in liver disease is milk thistle (Sylibum marianum), but studies have yet to determine conclusively that it can prevent, halt or reverse liver damage in people with hepatitis. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) concludes that there is not sufficient evidence to recommend milk thistle for hepatitis C or other causes of liver damage. The HCV Advocate, an non-profit organization for people living with HCV, recommends that milk thistle is probably safe and that no one should be discouraged from using it, provided that they inform their provider that they are taking it, that they are aware of any possible drug interactions, and that they do not use it as a substitute for hepatitis C treatment.

N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is another CAM that is often used to treat liver toxicity from overdoses of acetaminophen (Tylenol). There are not, however, conclusive studies of NAC in treating other types of liver damage.

It is important to remember that simply because these complementary therapies can be purchased without a prescription, this does not mean that they are always safe to take. Some complementary therapies have their own side effects. Some may interact with your HIV meds. Also, consumer protection groups who have done spot checks of various herbs and supplements have frequently found that herbs and supplements have either much less or much more of the active ingredients than stated on the bottles. Be sure to check with your health care provider before starting any complementary therapy.

Some herbs that have been associated with liver damage, and that the HCV Advocate recommends avoiding, include: Blue-green algae, borage (Borago officianalis), bupleurum, chaparral (Larrea tridentata), comfrey (Symphytum officinale and S. uplandicum), Dong Quai (Angelica polymorpha), germander (Eucrium chamaedrys), Jin Bu Huan (lycopodium serratum), kava, mistletoe (Phoradendron leucarpum and viscum album), pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium), sassafras (Sassafras albidum), shark cartilage, skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), and valerian. This list does not include every herb with known or suspected liver toxicities.
