Q. What is Plv Injection?

Plv Injection is made up of two amino acids. It is most commonly used in cases of liver diseases in order to prevent it from abnormal brain function called hepatic encephalopathy.

Q. What is the use of Plv Injection in the treatment of hepatic encephalopathy (HE)?

Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a brain disorder which occurs in patients with liver failure. In liver failure, there is increased bacterial growth in the intestine which leads to an accumulation of ammonia in blood. This deteriorating condition of the liver starts affecting the functioning of the brain, causing Hepatic encephalopathy. Plv Injection works by detoxifying the ammonia from the blood, hence decreasing the free ammonia from the body. This, as a result, helps decrease the abnormal functioning of the brain caused due to liver failure.
