Terlipressin Infusion 1 mg/10 ml injection
Terlipressin (also known as triglycyl lysine vasopressin) is a synthetic analogue of the neuropeptide hormone vasopressin and a pro drug for lysine vasopressin. Terlipressin has affinity for vasopressin receptors (V receptors). V receptors are divided into three specific subtypes (V1, V2 and V3), the distribution and density of which account for the potential pharmacological effects including vasoconstrictive effects.
TEPRASIN is administered by bolus intravenous injection and is indicated for Bleeding esophageal varices and Type 1 hepatorenal syndrome.
