Pharmacological action of citicoline sodium

1. Protect cell membrane lipid structure

◆ Synthesize phospholipid (lecithin), repair neuron cell membrane and mitochondrial membrane

◆ Inhibit phospholipid decomposition (phospholipase A1, A2 activity ↓)

◆ Reduce the release of free fatty acids and lipid peroxidation

◆Blocking the toxicity of excitatory amino acids

2. Maintain the energy metabolism of the brain

◆ Emulsify and decompose fat, reduce blood viscosity and lower blood cholesterol

◆ Improve cerebrovascular tension and increase cerebral blood flow

◆ Increase the uptake of glucose and oxygen

◆ Restore the activity of ATPase (mitochondrial ATPase, Na/K-ATPase)

3. Exciting neurotransmitter action

◆ Increase the synthesis of acetylcholine

◆ Increase the synthesis of dopamine

4. Other effects on brain tissue

◆ Promote the reabsorption of cerebral edema

◆ Synthesize glutathione to maintain antioxidant effect

◆ Inhibit cell apoptosis

5. Clinical application

Sequelae of traumatic brain injury; ischemic encephalopathy; facial neuritis; intractable vertigo; diabetic peripheral neuropathy; glaucoma, amblyopia, optic atrophy.
