Pharmacological action


Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics


Meletin is included into subgroup of flavanols, has the antioxidant effect caused  by its ability to suppress process of peroxide oxidation of lipids. Meletin reduces concentration of toxic products of a peroksidation and free radicals, stimulates isoforms of a superoxide scavenger (SOD) katalazny activity.

Antiinflammatory and antiallergic effect of drug are caused by Korvitin's ability to suppress activity of a gilauronidaza, synthesis of leukotrienes and kaltsy-Atfazu. The antineoplastic effect is based on ability of drug to inhibit process of phosphorylation of proteins, and also on antioxidant and antiproliferative action. Suppresses trombogenez, possesses positive inotropic action on muscles of ventricles of heart (a papillary muscle).

The antiarrhytmic effect is caused by suppression of an oxidative stress and oppression of leukotrienes. Cardiotyre-tread action is caused by stimulation of process of production of nitrogen oxide that promotes improvement of a metabolism in an ishemirovanny site. Drug improves processes of recovery of microcirculation and blood circulation after a heart attack and a stroke, recovers a tone of vessels without the expressed changes. Meletin promotes growth of population of cells of immune system (lymphocytes, phagocytosis) that reduces manifestations of secondary immunodeficience.


Drug after parenteral administration is quickly absorbed in an organism. In blood the maximum concentration is reached in one minute. Meletin forms permanent communication with proteins of plasma. Gets through GEB. It is metabolized through gepatobiliarny system, removed by kidneys.

Indications to use

  • In complex treatment of disturbances of blood circulation head brain, caused by acute ischemia (a stroke ischemic, tranzitorny ischemic attacks) and brain diseases which cornerstone chronic ischemic processes are.


High sensitivity to drug and to HP with R-vitamin activity, children's age, at the expressed arterial hypotension, during pregnancy and a lactation.

Side effects

In cases of fast administration of drug, and also at its use in a combination with organic nitrates there is a risk of development of moderately expressed arterial hypotension.

About Korvitin

According to responses of doctors, Korvitin's inclusion in the scheme of treatment of a myocardial infarction at patients with symptoms of acute heart failure contributes to normalization of pumping function of heart and reduces dilatation of a cavity of a left ventricle. Especially expressed effect is noted in the first days of an acute myocardial infarction at patients with dysfunction of a muscle of a left ventricle. Use of drug in the early period of a disease promotes a degrowth of a nekrotizirovanny myocardium.

Drug is effective also an intensive care of patients with an acute ischemic stroke. Its appointment allows to reach fuller and rather fast functional recovery of such patients, and also increases to 78% an indicator of an absolute recovery of patients to the end of the acute period of a stroke.
