Encetron-Solopharm Pharmacodynamics
Citicoline, being a precursor of the key ultrastructural components of the cell membrane (mainly phospholipids), has a broad spectrum of action: it helps restore damaged cell membranes, inhibits the action of phospholipases, prevents the excess formation of free radicals, and also prevents cell death by acting on apoptosis mechanisms. In the acute period of stroke citicoline reduces the volume of brain tissue damage, improves cholinergic transmission. In craniocerebral trauma reduces the duration of post-traumatic coma and severity of neurological symptoms, also contributes to reducing the duration of the recovery period. In chronic cerebral hypoxia citicoline is effective in treating cognitive disorders such as memory impairment, lack of initiative, difficulty in performing daily activities and self-care.  It increases attention and consciousness, and reduces the manifestation of amnesia. Effective in treating sensory and motor neurological disorders of degenerative and vascular etiology.
