Information about the drug

Arctotropin® (somatropin for injection) is a polypeptide hormone consisting of 191 amino acid residues and its structure is identical to that of growth hormone extracted from human pituitary glands. It is produced by recombinant (rDNA) technology in a mammalian cell expression system.

Arctotropin® is an anabolic and anti-catabolic agent which exerts its influence by interacting with specific receptors on a variety of cell types including myocytes, hepatocytes, adipocytes, Iymphocytes and hematopoietic cells. Some, but not all of its effects are mediated by another class of hormones known as somatomedins (IGF-1 and IGF-2).

HIV-associated wasting is a metabolic disorder characterized by specific abnormalities of intermediary metabolism resulting in weight loss, inappropriate depletion of lean body mass (LBM), and paradoxical preservation of body fat. LBM includes primarily skeletal muscle, organ tissue, blood and blood constituents. LBM depletion results in muscle weakness, organ failure, immune deficiency, general inanition and death. Unlike nutritional intervention for HIV-associated wasting, in which supplemental calories are converted predominantly to body fat which is essentially inert in day-to-day metabolic balance, the anabolic and anti-catabolic effects of Arctotropin® treatment resulted in a prompt and sustained increase in LBM and a decrease In body fat with a significant increase in body weight due to the dominant effect of LBM gain.
