Betolvex pharmocology :
Vitamin B is essential for life and deficiency brings about the fatal disease of megaloblastic anaemia and/or neurological symptoms. Moreover, vitamin B acts as a coenzyme in many important enzymatic processes.
Betolvex injection :
It is a vitamin B-tannin complex suspended in a sesame oil-aluminium monostearate gel. Vitamin B is gradually released from the site of injection over a long period, simultaneously replenishing the stores in the liver. It is well established that injections of aqueous solutions of vitamin B bring about a short-lasting rise m the serum level, without providing surplus vitamin B for replenishing body stores. As the treatment of a deficiency disease can only be considered satisfactory when the patient’s physiological condition becomes completely normal, the Dumex research laboratories have developed a vitamin B preparation with prolonged action.
