What is Selank?
Selank is a synthetic peptide. It was synthesized by combining the sequence of a peptide called tuftsin with another sequence that improves its molecular stability. Tuftsin is naturally found in the Fc region of immunoglobulin G (IgG). Tuftsin has an immunostimulatory effect resulting in anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects.
Selank was designed and produced at the Institute of Molecular Genetics, of the Russian Academy of Sciences in cooperation with V.V. Zakusov Research Institute of Pharmacology, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. They also produced the nootropic Semax.
It has been approved in Russia for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). In clinical trials, the drug has shown to provide sustained nootropic and anxiolytic effects which are useful in the treatment GAD.
Scientific studies indicate that selank seems to be free of negative side-effects. While other anxiety medications tend to produce sedation or reduced cognitive performance, selank has no such effect. Both tuftsin and selank have shown the ability to reduce anxiety and increase serotonin levels in animal models.
- Can lower anxiety.
- Can enhance memory and improve learning.
- Can improve immune function: selank increases interleukin-6 (IL-6) in blood cells. IL-6 is a cytokine produced in response to tissue damage and infections. It is believed to help fight off infections. Selank can also stimulate the release of interferons (anti-viral molecules).
- Increases levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), an important brain-growth protein.
- Helps stabilize enkephalins in the blood. Enkephalins help counteract the stress response.
