1. Glycopin (Glikopin).

2. Glycopin is a drug in the form of tablets, containing N-acetylglucosaminyl-N-acetylmuramoyl-alanyl-D-isoglutamine (GMDP) as an active ingredient - 1 mg per 1 tablet, and as auxiliary components: milk sugar, sugar or sucrose, potato starch, methylcellulose brand MTs-100 and calcium stearate.

3. Glycopin is a round pill without a white coating of slightly sweet taste, weighing 0.1 g.

4. Glycopin released in packs of cardboard, containing 1 cell contour packaging of 10 tablets. Each cellular blister pack is labeled with the organization of the manufacturer and the trademark, the name of the medicinal product, the amount of active ingredient in the tablet, the number of tablets, batch number and expiration date. Each pack is labeled with the organization of the manufacturer, its address and trademark, the name of the medicinal product, the amount of active ingredient in the tablet, batch number, date of manufacture, expiration date, number of tablets in the package, the inscription "For animals", storage conditions, designation of technical conditions and provide instructions for use. Glycopin is stored in the packaging of the manufacturer in a dry, dark place at temperatures from 0 to 25 ºС. The shelf life of the drug under the storage conditions is 5 years from the date of manufacture. Glycopin after the expiration date should not be used.


5. Glycopin is the main structural unit of peptidoglycan of the bacterial cell wall. It acts on the cells of the innate immune system by binding to a specific NOD2 receptor. It causes stimulation of phagocytic effector functions (phagocytosis, synthesis of reactive oxygen species, activity of lysosomal enzymes, presentation of antigens) and production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which in turn induce proliferation, activation and differentiation of acquired immunity cells - T and B lymphocytes. Through increased production of colony-stimulating factors, leukopoiesis is induced. As a result of the action of the drug, all parts of the immune system are activated, with increased anti-infective and antitumor immunity.

6. After oral administration, it is rapidly absorbed into the blood. The maximum plasma concentration of unchanged GMDP is detected after 4 hours. Bioavailability is about 77%. Fully metabolized after 8 hours. Products of metabolism are detected in the bloodstream within 12 hours and are excreted mainly through the kidneys with urine. According to the degree of impact on the body, Glycopin belongs to low-hazard substances (hazard class 4 according to GOST 12.1 007-76). The drug does not have a teratogenic and mutagenic effect. It has no irritant and sensitizing effects.


7. Glycopin is used in the complex treatment and prevention of infectious diseases of bacterial and viral etiology, to increase the overall resistance of the body of young and old animals, to enhance the effectiveness of vaccination in weakened animals with secondary immunodeficiency, reduce post-vaccination complications, to relieve stress in animals during transportation and various veterinary treatments, to stimulate the repair and regeneration of tissues after injuries and surgical interventions, to prevent immunopathology in the offspring of pregnant females, reduction postpartum period involutional processes in the uterus. Glycopin is applied inside before or during feeding.

8. In the complex of treatment and prevention of infectious diseases of bacterial and viral etiology, animals are prescribed Glycopin in a dose of 0.04-0.06 mg / kg once a day for 5-7 days, depending on the severity of the disease (dogs weighing up to 10 kg - 0.5-1 tablet, above 10 kg - 1-2 tablets, for cats weighing up to 3 kg - 0.25-0.5 tablets, above 3 kg - 0.5-1 tablet).

To enhance the effectiveness of vaccination in weakened animals with secondary immunodeficiency, increase overall resistance and prevent post-vaccination complications, stimulate the processes of repair and tissue regeneration after injuries and surgical interventions. Glycopin is used orally at a dose of 0.02-0.04 mg / kg animal weight 1 or 2 times with an interval of 24 hours (for dogs weighing up to 10 kg - 0.25-0.5 tablets, above 10 kg - 1-1.5 tablets, for cats weighing up to 3 kg - 0.25 tablets, above 3 kg - 0.5 pills). For the prevention of reduced immunity in stressful conditions, prevention of immunopathology in the offspring of pregnant females, reduction of the period of involutional postnatal processes in the uterus, glycopine is administered orally at a dose of 0.01-0.02 mg / kg 1 or 2 times with an interval of 24 hours (dogs - 0, 5-1 pills, cats 0.25-0.5 pills).

In some cases, the use of glycopine may cause a slight increase in body temperature. The temperature increase is associated with the therapeutic effect of the drug, briefly and passes independently. Other side effects and complications in the application of Glycopin in accordance with the instructions are not marked.

9. Glycopin is not recommended for use in conjunction with high doses of glucocorticosteroid drugs.

10. Restrictions on the use of animal products after the use of Glycopin are absent.


11. When applying Glycopin should follow the general rules provided when working with drugs for animals.

12. Glycopin should be kept out of the reach of children.

Each pill contains acetylglucosaminyl -N-acetylmuramoyl-alanyl-D-isoglutamine (GMDP).

Fact. Glycopin is a domestic product manufactured by CJSC Peptek (Moscow).

Operating principle and active substances

After the tablets enter the body, there is a rapid absorption of the active ingredients (a high concentration in the blood is observed already after 4 hours), triggering the activation of the entire chain of links of the immune mechanism. Activation of cells of the phagocytic region of the immune system - macrophages and neutrophils - occurs after the appearance of anti-inflammatory cytokines, which are mediators of increasing body resistance.

The main pharmacological effects of taking glycopine:

  • anti-infective,
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anticancer.

Glycopin increases the body's resistance.

Achieving a beneficial effect is achieved due to the presence of the main active ingredient - glucosaminylmuramyl dipeptide (GMDP), which reacts with the NOD32 receptor and stimulates the active synthesis of oxygen that saturates the cells and triggers the action of lysosomal enzymes that effectively suppress foreign elements that have entered the body. After taking Glycopin, important cells of the immune system are activated in the same way - lymphocytes of B and T types. The main part of metabolic products is excreted with the urine (over 65%), the rest - along with feces.

Indications for use

Apply the drug in cats after severe poisoning.

The elimination of immunodeficiencies, primary and secondary, is the main indication for the use of immunomodulatory agents in cats. An immunomodulator is also prescribed after severe poisoning in cats, which reduce the protective forces of the animal due to intoxication of the body. The intake of substances that are part of Glycopin, can also lead to a calming psyche, necessary when visiting a veterinarian, performing cosmetic procedures (claw trimming, grooming) or participating in exhibitions. According to this effect, you should not worry that the cat will start to behave hyperactively after taking glycopine, the effect of the immunomodulator has mentally strengthening properties.

The rationality of taking Glycopin with:

  1. infectious lesions of the body,
  2. purulent wounds with signs of tissue necrosis,
  3. benign tumors
  4. septic shock
  5. transferred operation
  6. vaccination.

The use of vaccinations threatens the occurrence of allergic and toxic body reactions in an animal, as well as a temporary decrease in the body's resistance to viruses. Along with the presence of a chronic infection, the animal's well-being can be significantly impaired, but taking Glycopin reduces the likelihood of adverse events to a minimum. Если кот часто болеет в весенне-осенний период (особенно характерно для кошек, проживающих в частных домах) медикамент принимается для профилактики заболеваемости простудой. The wound surface is more likely to cicatrize and heal after entering GMDP into the blood, there is also an overall improvement in the condition of the dermis and hair - inflammations are eliminated and the fungal lesions of the skin disappear.

Important. Glycopin can be given immediately before mating in order to increase the chances of successful mating and the conception of healthy offspring.

Dosage depending on the mass of the cat (sedation or prevention):

  • kittens less than 2 kg - 1/8 or 1/4 tab,
  • up to 3 kg - quarter or half,
  • over 3 kg - from half to the whole tab.

To block a panic condition or prevent infection, a single dose of Glycopin per day is sufficient. In the first case, admission is carried out during the period of influence of adverse stress factors, in the second, a course of 5–7 (sometimes 10) days. If you wish to increase the effectiveness of vaccination or eliminate the complications caused by vaccination, you should give a reduced dose - a quarter of the tablet to cats weighing less than 3 kg and half a tablet over a given body weight.

Important. With low efficacy, twice daily intake of Glycopin is allowed.

Contraindications and side effects

The drug has virtually no contraindications.

The tool has a low toxicity class (class 4), and therefore does not have a hepatotoxic and local irritating effect, but sometimes the cat may become ill after taking glycopine. The likely cause is individual intolerance to components or overdose. Toxic syndrome may develop with an unfavorable combination of different drugs: at the same time, it is strictly prohibited to combine Glycopin with glucocorticosteroid drugs.

In such a situation, disorders of the digestive tract functioning are possible, accompanied by constipation or loose stools (extremely rare). Most often, an overdose symptoms of a slight increase in temperature in an animal. The tool does not adversely affect the growth of the fetus, therefore, is appointed without restriction to pregnant and lactating cats. Some veterinarians consider taking Glycopine during this period as highly desirable: enhancing immunity eliminates the onset of immunopathology in the offspring as it matures.

Fact. Glycopin does not affect the lifespan, because it does not contain chemically toxic components.

Glycopin for cats owners reviews

Anastasia. We have an old cat (she will soon be 15 years old), and she began to often get cold, although she walks on the street at most for 1-2 hours. During this period, she became lethargic, nasal discharge appeared, snoring appeared. On the advice of the veterinarian, she gave the animal Glycopin to raise immunity - as a result, all signs of a cold passed. At the same time, I noticed an improvement in the well-being of the cat, which even began to show interest in games. The child is pleased.

Lyudmila. A newly born cat was diagnosed with rhinotracheitis, which is very dangerous for not strong kittens. After treatment, the cat became more energetic, and the young did not become infected. I am very glad that no adverse reactions were detected - only the first two days a decrease in appetite was observed, but we cannot precisely link the change in behavior with the administration of tablets.

Vet reviews about the drug

Veterinarians recommend this drug.

Kirill. Glycopin rescued many pet owners who addressed me with complex cat diseases. So the cat, who suffered bronchosepticosis, and the young cat after a long treatment of opisthorchiasis quickly recovered. For oncologically sick pets, it is also rational to prescribe an immunomodulator, which sometimes contributes to the victory over this insidious disease.

Boris Glycopin - one of the effective solutions that increase the defenses of the animal. I almost always recommend this remedy for infectious diseases, especially if I am asked to find a cheaper remedy. Glycopin is made with us, so it has a favorable price tag, and there is practically no difference in impact. The tool is also universal - it can be given to dogs, ferrets and birds. A very noticeable reparation effect helps animals with wounds to enhance the healing rate of injuries. I almost always recommend Glycopin if they bring me a cat that was injured in a fight or was bitten by dogs.

Storage conditions and price

Exposure to light and moisture - prohibited storage conditions of Glycopin, in addition, the temperature should be observed, the safe variations of which are in the range from 0 to 25 degrees. The storage time of Glycopinum may not exceed a period of more than 5 years, after overcoming which means the reception is not safe. The price tag on the packaging of Glycopin containing 10 tablets varies in the price range from 210 to 255 rubles.

Description of the drug Glycopin

Glycopin (Glikopini) is a veterinary drug used for immunomodulation and immune correction. The developer of the formula of the drug is the Russian organization CJSC Peptek (Moscow). Glycopin refers to glucosaminylmuramyl dipeptides (synthetic immunomodulators).

Peptek develops and manufactures immunomodulators for humans and animals.

The Peptek company has been operating since 1996. The organization not only produces pharmaceuticals, but also deals with the research and development of new formulas. The most significant and popular discoveries of CJSC Peptek are Glycopin and Likopid. These immunomodulators are similar in composition and action, but Licopid is designed for human immunomodulation.

Glycopin release form

Glycopin is available in the form of white tablets of a round, flat-cylindrical shape. Tablets with chamfers of 10 pieces are packed in metallized blisters with transparent cells. Each blister packaged in a flat cardboard box along with manufacturer's instructions. Glycopin packaging can be purchased for 320-380 rubles without a veterinary prescription.

One pack of 10 tablets is included in one pack of glycopine.

What are the conditions to keep a veterinary drug

Glycopin is recommended to be stored in the original packaging, the storage place should be isolated from direct sunlight and moisture. Children and animals should not have access to the drug. The recommended storage temperature is from 0 ° C to 25 ° C. Under all conditions, the drug will be suitable for 5 years. After this period, unused medicine should be disposed of with household waste.

I keep all the medicine for cats in a separate first-aid kit on the top shelf of the cabinet. I paste the instructions for use into a separate notebook (it is so convenient to look for a suitable medicine in an emergency). Along with the drugs in this kit are stored all the tools for the care of cats. Children and "kotodeti" can not reach the first-aid kit, and family members just do not confuse cat medicine with human.

Glycopin, as well as all drugs, it is desirable to store in a separate medicine cabinet

Indications for use Glycopinum

Glycopin is indicated in the following cases:

  • in the treatment and prevention of infections of bacterial and viral etiology, cancer,
  • to increase the nonspecific resistance of the body of young and old animals,
  • to enhance the effectiveness of vaccination in weakened animals with secondary immunodeficiency,
  • in order to relieve stresses during transportation and zoo veterinary treatments,
  • to stimulate the repair and regeneration of tissues after injuries and surgical interventions,
  • as prevention of immunodeficiency kittens and reduce the period of postpartum processes in the uterus.

The mechanism of action of the immunomodulator

The active ingredient of the immunomodulator is similar to a fragment of a bacterial cell, it activates the work of T-and B-lymphocytes. The induced lymphocyte activity enhances the body's resistance to pathogenic factors. The immunity of the animal becomes resistant to infections and tumors. Glycopin is absorbed into the blood through the intestinal walls, and the maximum concentration of the drug in the blood occurs after 4 hours. The drug is derived partially in a natural way.

Features of use in cats

Glycopin should be given to the cat before or during feeding. The tablet can be crushed and mixed with a small amount of wet food or drinking water. A convenient device for giving tablets is a tablet press (in such cases, you do not need to crush a tablet). More experienced owners give the medicine by force (you need to put a pill on the root of the tongue, and the cat will swallow it reflexively).

I consider the most convenient way to use the medicine - forced feeding. My whole procedure takes 15–20 seconds. Of course, earlier (at the very beginning of the experience with cats) it was difficult, but over time I adapted. The hardest part is to immobilize the cat. My Honda knows that it is necessary to suffer a little and let her go, but some animals feel some danger when they are trying to lay in an uncomfortable position. My sister has no such experience yet, so when she gives the pill she puts a soft hairline on her cat's neck (some use small-sized cat things).

If you put the tablet vertically and on the root of the tongue, the cat will swallow it automatically.

Contraindications for cats and dogs

Recommendations to limit the intake of glycopene has not. The exception is the individual intolerance of the individual components of the drug.

Drug pills have no contraindications

Allowed for complex treatment with other drugs, excluding glucocorticosteroid drugs.

Side effects

Subject to the instructions for use, as well as the dosage and frequency of prema, side effects are not observed.

Symptoms of overdose are:

  • Sharp rise in body temperature
  • Diarrhea,
  • Constipation.
The drug glycopene is not intended for use by a productive animal.

Admission is allowed from the first days of the pet's life, but before that it is necessary to consult a veterinary clinic.


Distinctive features of the drug glycopene are:

  • Reliability and effectiveness of impact
  • The natural origin of the components
  • The absence of malicious compounds,
  • Combined use with other drugs,
  • Easy pet tolerance ..

Price and analogues

The cost is 230 rubles or more for a ten-pound currency bill.

The drug glycopene is a great way to strengthen the pet's immunity, improve its well-being and prolong its lifespan. The application will not take the work of the owner, as the tablets have a sweetish taste and are readily accepted by cats. The drug is absolutely harmless to kittens from the first day of life, so it is popular in use by both veterinarians and owners of fluffy friends.
