RETINALAMIN® - activates retinal cells reserves increasing cell survivability and regenerative capacity when retina and optic nerve has been damaged. Retinalamin increases metabolism and blood flow, optimizes vascular permeability in eyes. It improves and stabilizes visual functions (visual acuity, low-light eyesight, visual field extension). The data is supported by specific retina and optic nerve studies. Pharmaceutical Company GEROPHARM is a sole manufacturer of Retinalamin. The drug is manufactured using the Company's own patented technology.

Retinoprotectors are agents that protect retina from damage caused by exogenous and endogenous forces thus safeguarding eyesight from getting worse. Searching for new agents for retinal protection is a complicated process which requires integrated efforts of therapists, biologists and pharmacologists. Special attention should be given to peptide drugs. The benefits of these drugs are tissue specificity, absence of significant side-effects, short-course treatment and long-term clinical effect. Retinalamin® is an example of successful drug development based on these principles. The effecacy of Retinalamin® has been proven at the cellular and molecular levels. Retinal injuries may be caused by various factors and have different disease patterns, however, they are all accompanied by death of retinal neurons due to pathological processes with the similar molecular mechanisms. Among those mechanisms the most predominant one is excitotoxicity caused by overstimulation of glutamate receptors followed by the influx of calcium ions. Excessive Ca2+ concentration triggers processes of cell death via necrosis or apoptosis.

In adults with diabetic retinopathy, post-traumatic and post-inflammatory central retinal dystrophy, central and peripheral tapetoretinal abiotrophy: parabulbar or intramuscular injections of 5-10 mg once a day. Treatment duration is 5-10 days; if necessary, repeated after 3-6 months.
In patients with compensated primary open-angle glaucoma: parabulbar or intramuscular injections of 5 mg once a day. Treatment duration is 10 days; if necessary, repeated after 3-6 months. In patients with myopia: parabulbar injections of 5 mg once a day. Treatment duration is 10 days. It is recommended to combine with angioprotectorsand B group vitamins.
Dissolve Retinalamin® lyophilisate in 1-2 ml of water for injections, in 0.9 % solution of sodium chloride, or in 0.5 % solution of procaine (novocaine), directing the needle toward the side of the vial to avoid foaming.
In children at the age of 1 – 5 years with post-traumatic and post-inflammatory central retinal dystrophy, central and peripheral tapetoretinal abiotrophy: parabulbar or intramuscular injections of 2.5 mg once a day.
In children at the age of 6 – 18 years with retina central dystrophy of post-traumatic and post-inflammatory origin, central and peripheral tapetoretinal abiotrophy: parabulbar or intramuscular injections of 2.5 – 5.0 mg once a day.
Dissolve Retinalamin® lyophilisate in 1-2 ml of 0.9 % solution of sodium chloride, directing the needle toward the side of the vial to avoid foaming. Treatment duration is 10 days; if necessary, repeated after 3-6 months.
