The disturbances of redox processes, metabolism and energy supply at the cellular level are developed in many diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. Actovegin, a highly purified deproteinized hemoderivative of calf blood, is widely used in the treatment of these diseases due to providing complex effects on cells. It was found that in cells of different origin, Actovegin increases glucose uptake and improves the oxygen uptake. This allows activating the energy processes in the cell and affecting its functional metabolism. It is emphasized that Actovegin is of great interest for neurological practice as a drug for the therapy of diseases whose pathogenesis is associated with hypoxia, ischemia and oxidative stress.
