riboflavin phosphate A coenzyme for a number of oxidative enzymes including NADH DEHYDROGENASE. It is the principal form in which RIBOFLAVIN is found in cells and tissues.
calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate
nicotinamide An important compound functioning as a component of the coenzyme NAD. Its primary significance is in the prevention and/or cure of blacktongue and PELLAGRA. Most animals cannot manufacture this compound in amounts sufficient to prevent nutritional deficiency and it therefore must be supplemented through dietary intake.
thiamine 3-((4-Amino-2-methyl-5-pyrimidinyl)methyl)-5-(2- hydroxyethyl)-4-methylthiazolium chloride.
pyridoxine The 4-methanol form of VITAMIN B 6 which is converted to PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE which is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, aminolevulinic acid. Although pyridoxine and Vitamin B 6 are still frequently used as synonyms, especially by medical researchers, this practice is erroneous and sometimes misleading (EE Snell; Ann NY Acad Sci, vol 585 pg 1, 1990).
ascorbic acid A six carbon compound related to glucose. It is found naturally in citrus fruits and many vegetables. Ascorbic acid is an essential nutrient in human diets, and necessary to maintain connective tissue and bone. Its biologically active form, vitamin C, functions as a reducing agent and coenzyme in several metabolic pathways. Vitamin C is considered an antioxidant. NIH COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel states that there are insufficient data to recommend either for or against use of ascorbic acid for the treatment of COVID-19 in critically or noncritically ill patients.
alpha-tocopherol acetate
dexpanthenol The alcohol of pantothenic acid
riboflavin Nutritional factor found in milk, eggs, malted barley, liver, kidney, heart, and leafy vegetables. The richest natural source is yeast. It occurs in the free form only in the retina of the eye, in whey, and in urine; its principal forms in tissues and cells are as FLAVIN MONONUCLEOTIDE and FLAVIN-ADENINE DINUCLEOTIDE.
hydroxocobalamin acetate
fursultiamine Compound used for therapy of thiamine deficiency. It has also been suggested for several non-deficiency disorders but has not yet proven useful.
colecalciferol Derivative of 7-dehydroxycholesterol formed by ULTRAVIOLET RAYS breaking of the C9-C10 bond. It differs from ERGOCALCIFEROL in having a single bond between C22 and C23 and lacking a methyl group at C24. Some experts recommend maintaining recommended levels of vitamin D intake during the COVID-19 pandemic to maintain bone and muscle health and avoid deficiency. Efficacy of vitamin D supplementation in the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 has not been established.
folic acid A member of the vitamin B family that stimulates the hematopoietic system. It is present in the liver and kidney and is found in mushrooms, spinach, yeast, green leaves, and grasses (POACEAE). Folic acid is used in the treatment and prevention of folate deficiencies and megaloblastic anemia.
retinol acetate
ferrous fumarate used in treatment of iron deficiency anemia; RN given refers to Fe(+2)[1:1] salt
vitamin A palmitate
biotin A water-soluble, enzyme co-factor present in minute amounts in every living cell. It occurs mainly bound to proteins or polypeptides and is abundant in liver, kidney, pancreas, yeast, and milk.
phytomenadione A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
levomefolic acid an ingredient in Contraceptives, Oral, Combined
calcium carbonate Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.
sodium fluoride A source of inorganic fluoride which is used topically to prevent dental caries.
clopamide A sulfamoylbenzamide piperidine. It is considered a thiazide-like diuretic.
trifluperidol A butyrophenone with general properties similar to those of HALOPERIDOL. It is used in the treatment of PSYCHOSES including MANIA and SCHIZOPHRENIA. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p621)
oxytetracycline A TETRACYCLINE analog isolated from the actinomycete STREPTOMYCES RIMOSUS and used in a wide variety of clinical conditions.
benperidol A butyrophenone with general properties similar to those of HALOPERIDOL. It has been used in the treatment of aberrant sexual behavior. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p567)
rolitetracycline A pyrrolidinylmethyl TETRACYCLINE.
loxiglumide cholecystokinin receptor antagonist; RN refers to (+-)-isomer
hexobarbital A barbiturate that is effective as a hypnotic and sedative.
caplacizumab In patients with aTTP, levels of a substance called von Willebrand factor are increased. von Willebrand factor acts on platelets to cause them to stick together and form blood clots. Caplacizumab, the active substance in Cablivi, is a nanobody (a small antibody) which has been designed to attach to von Willebrand factor in a way that stops it acting on platelets. This reduces platelets sticking together and forming clots in blood vessels and, as a result, platelet levels in the blood rise because they are no longer taken up to form clots.
protizinic acid
femoxetine serotonin uptake inhibitor; RN given refers to (3R-trans)-isomer
ibuprofen guaiacol ester
dapoxetine selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that was designed specifically for premature ejaculation
enprostil A synthetic PGE2 analog that has an inhibitory effect on gastric acid secretion, a mucoprotective effect, and a postprandial lowering effect on gastrin. It has been shown to be efficient and safe in the treatment of gastroduodenal ulcers.
thurfyl nicotinate
bietaserpine hypotensive agent; structure
diseptal B
sitaxentan endothelin A receptor antagonist
succinylsulfathiazole intestinal antimicrobial agent; structure
pheniodol sodium
droxidopa A synthetic precursor of norepinephrine that is used in the treatment of PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS and ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION.
fenproporex an anorectic drug used in the treatment of obesity
lobenzarit prevents autoimmune kidney disease in hybrid mice; RN given refers to parent cpd
aminorex An amphetamine-like anorectic agent. It may cause pulmonary hypertension.
eptotermin alfa an osteoinductive initiates bone formation through the induction of cellular differentiation in mesenchymal cells, which are recruited to the implant site from bone marrow periosteum and muscle, used for treatment of non-union of bone fractures
selamectin A broad-spectrum endectocide;
prasterone acetate
