Therapeutic administration of L-ornithine L-aspartate increases ammonia detoxification in two ways:
1. Activation of the urea cycle in the liver, through provision of the metabolic substrates ornithine and aspartate.
2. The substrates ornithine and aspartate promote glutamine formation, thereby stimulating ammonia detoxification via glutamine synthesis in the liver, in the brain, and in muscle.
For the treatment of hyperammonemia as a result of acute and chronic liver diseases such as liver cirrhosis, fatty liver, hepatitis; especially for the treatment of incipient disturbances of consciousness (pre-coma) or neurological complications (hepatic encephalopathy).
