What Is Cerebrolysin Therapy?
What is Cerebrolysin Therapy? Cerebrolysin is a mixture of enzymatically treated peptides derived from the brain of a pig, which constituents can include Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), Glial Cell Line Derived Neurotrophic Factor(GDNF), Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF) and Nerve Growth Factor (NGF). Cerebrolysin consists of low molecular peptides and is considered a synthetic nootropic drug. It also possesses neurotrophic repair and neuroprotective properties. The active fragments of Cerebrolysin are made up of proteins with a very low molecular mass, this means they can easily pass through the blood brain barrier reaching brain neurons directly.
Cerebrolysin has been used to help patients recover from things like strokes, dementia, depression, traumatic brain injury, ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease. This nootropic agent can help prevent the formation of free radicals and shield neurons from lactic acidosis. Cerebrolysin can help protect brain cells and prevent their death due to harmful conditions. It can also help relieve inflammation and has been used to help treat children with ADHD. Cerebrolysin can help patients with neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease, by increasing the synapse function, lowering amyloid deposits, improving neuron metabolic activity, and protecting neurons from free radical stress.
What Are The Benefits Of Cerebrolysin Therapy?
Cerebrolysin can help improve the recovery and outcome of patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Strokes, Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, and Alzheimer’s Disease, because of its neuroregenerative and neuroprotective properties. It can also help reduce inflammation, improve mental clarity, reduce fatigue, and help children with ADHD. Cerebrolysin can also help improve communication skills in infants after severe brain injury. Many European and Asian countries have approved the use of Cerebrolysin as a treatment for neurodegenerative disorders and other applications.
Cerebrolysin Therapy Benefits
- Helps promote the growth of new brain cells also referred to as neurogenesis.
- Can help lower inflammation in the brain
- Helps improve brain cell communication, which can help enhances learning capacity
- Increases glucose uptake in brain cells and protein production in cells helping increase brain energy.
- Can help significantly increase the number of new synapses in the hippocampus region of the brain
- Helps to promote neurovascular protection and neurovascular repair
- Can help improve communication skills in infants after severe brain injury
- Helps pass through the blood brain barrier to reaching brain neurons directly
- Can help significantly reduce the formation of free radicals
- Helps lower amyloid deposits which is a key driving cause of Alzheimer’s Disease
- Can help children with ADHD have better mental clarity
How Is Cerebrolysin Therapy Normally Administered To Patients?
When it comes to Cerebrolysin Therapy there are different protocols depending on what it is being used for some of the most common uses are listed below.
Subcutaneous Injection and Intramuscular Injection: This protocol is commonly use for mild cognitive impairment and is prescribed by Medical Practitioners who are using Cerebrolysin Therapy is 1 ml injected Intramuscular or Subcutaneous once a day for 40 days, then 80 days off, then repeat as directed by your Medical Practitioner.
Intravenous Infusion: This protocol is commonly used for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, or Traumatic Brain Injury and is prescribed by Medical Practitioners who are using Cerebrolysin Therapy is 5ml IV Infusion in IV saline solution usually for 4 or 5 consecutive days. Some Medical Practitioners noticed patient improvement after the first 4 or 5 IV Infusions.
What Are The Side Effects Of Cerebrolysin Therapy?
Cerebrolysin is well-tolerated by most patients and has mild side effects that are usually temporary and may include the following:
- Weight loss
- Flu-like symptoms
Cerebrolysin Therapy is being used with success in other parts of the world but has not yet been approved by the FDA for use in the United States. This has not deterred some Medical Practitioners from noticing the benefits of Cerebrolysin Therapy and using it to treat patients in need of medical intervention where other treatments have not been successful. One thing that has influenced the decision of Medical Practitioners to use Cerebrolysin Therapy is witnessing the agony of families with someone who is suffering with cognitive impairment or a neurodegenerative disorder.
Even though it has not received FDA approval for use in the U.S., results from various studies and clinical trials from around the world have also been a deciding factor for Medical Practitioners, as well as the lack of other viable treatments or failure of available treatments for neurodegenerative disorders.
