Animal trials showed that in all types of behavioral experiments, Oxiracetam can improve memory retention and learning ability, reduce brain shocks’ damage on memory, and prevent the learning abilities of rats suffering from spontaneous hypertensive cerebrovascular injury from decreasing. It can also increase acetylcholine circulation in rats’ skin and hippocampus, thus increasing affinity for choline uptake.
Mechanisms of Action
Oxiracetam’s mechanisms of action are similar to those of Piracetam. It promotes the binding of phosphorylcholine and phosphoethanolamine, increases the ratio of ATP/ADP in the brain, and increases the binding of protein with nucleic acids in the brain, thus improving the memory and learning ability of patients with senile dementia and memory disorder.
This nootropic (Alzheimer) drug is purified by recrystallisation from MeOH or aqueous Me2CO and dried in vacuo. [NMR, IR: Pifferi & Pinza Farmaco Ed Sci 32 602 1977, Banfi et al. Farmaco Ed Sci 39 16 1984, Gouilaev & Senning Brain Research Rev 19 180 1994.]
Indications and Usage
Oxiracetam, Piracetam and Aniracetam, are three commonly used brain metabolism-improving drugs and are pyrrolidone derivatives. They were developed in 1974 by the Italian company ICF and went on sale in 1987.
Oxiracetam is a Piracetam derivative and excites the central nervous system, promotes brain metabolism, significantly increases and promotes memory retention, and effectively treats senile memory and mental decline. It is used to treat brain dysfunction psychiatric syndrome and mental disorders. It can improve the memory and learning abilities of patients with senile dementia or memory disorders. It is suitable for treating neural dysfunction, memory disorder and intelligence disorders caused by brain damage. It can also be used as a recovery treatment for neurosis, brain trauma, encephalitis, and other brain diseases. Oxiracetam’s greatest advantage is that it is very soluble in water, making it suitable for injection. Research shows that Oxiracetam has higher pharmacological activity and significant curative effects compared to Piracetam.
After intake, most of the drug will not accumulate in the body and will be excreted through urine in its original form. It is well-absorbed and well-tolerated.
Nootropic. Analog of Piracetam with psychostimulant activity.
