A drug that improves brain metabolism. Cortexin is a lyophilisate obtained by acetic extraction from the cerebral cortex of cattle or pigs, containing low molecular weight active neuropeptides, the molecular weight of which does not exceed 10,000 daltons, sufficient for penetration through the BBB.
Cortexin has a tissue-specific multifunctional effect on the brain, which is manifested in metabolic regulation, neuroprotection, functional neuromodulation, and neurotrophic activity.
Cortexin increases the efficiency of the energy metabolism of brain cells, improves intracellular protein synthesis.
Cortexin regulates lipid peroxidation processes in brain cells, reduces the formation of free radicals, blocks the processes of free radical oxidation. The drug eliminates the imbalance of inhibitory and excitatory amino acids, has a moderate GABA-ergic action.
The drug has a positive effect in violation of cognitive functions, improves concentration, short-term memory, ability to learn, accelerates the restoration of brain function after stress effects, regulates the level of serotonin and dopamine. Stimulates the process of mental activity, without exerting an excessive activating effect, restores the bioelectric activity of the brain.
Cortexin stimulates reparative processes in the brain.
- violations of cerebral circulation;
- encephalopathies of various origins;
- acute and chronic encephalitis and encephalomyelitis;
- vegetative dystonia;
- traumatic brain injury;
- viral and bacterial neuroinfections;
- cerebral palsy;
- delayed psychomotor and speech development in children;
- impaired memory, thinking, reduced ability to learn.
