USES OF EMROK O

HOW EMROK O WORKS

For infections, EMROK O works by suppressing the enzyme activity in the worm's muscles causing paralysis and death, thus effectively treats the infection. For steroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome, EMROK O works by restoring depressed immune function rather than stimulating the response to above-normal levels.
