INTRODUCTION

COGNITRAC 60MG contains Cerebroprotein hydrolysate which belongs to the group of medicine called neurotrophic agents. It is used to treat cranial injury, aprosexia (inability to sustain attention) in dementia and in other cerebrovascular pathological sequelae like stroke or Alzheimer's disease.

Cerebroprotein hydrolysate is a unique drug with small neurotrophic peptides produced by standardized enzymatic breakdown of lipid-free porcine brain proteins. It enhances neurogenesis, neuronal survival, neuromodulatory action, neuronal repair and has neuroimmunotrophic actions. It reduces excitotoxic damage and offers protection against ischaemic and neurotoxic lesions.
