INTRODUCTION

QUICOBAL contains methylcobalamin which belongs to a group of medicines called Anti-anemic agent. It is used in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy and diabetic neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy can be defined as a nerve pain that arises due to damage of peripheral nerves (nerves outside the brain and spinal cord) by traumatic injuries, infections or by metabolic problems like diabetes (diabetic neuropathy). It is characterized by stabbing, burning or tingling sensation on the nerves.

QUICOBAL can also be used as an adjuvant therapy to treat anemia, severe muscle tightness and decrease in muscle mass. Vitamin B12 is essential for the proper functioning of brain and nerves and for the production of red blood cells. Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B12 that helps in the synthesis of various essential amino acids required for cellular replication, haematopoiesis and myelination.

USES OF QUICOBAL

  • Peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain)
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Anemia
  • Muscle weakness

HOW QUICOBAL WORKS

Following administration, methylcobalamin is converted to Coenzyme B12 in the liver, which is essential for the transmethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Synthesis of methionine performs various metabolic functions which is required for cell replication and haematopoiesis (production of RBC). It also promotes nucleic acid synthesis in the bone marrow and helps in the maturation and division of erythroblasts thereby improving anemia.

It also promotes the synthesis of nucleic acid and proteins and maintains myelin throughout the nervous system, which helps in proper function of central nervous system and exhibits an electrophysiological and neuropathological inhibitory effect on nerve degeneration in neuropathies.
