Selank is a synthetic peptide, an anolog of peptide known as Tuftsin, which is thought to be immunomodulatory, as such, it imitates many of its effects. It has been shown to modulate the expression of Interleukin-6 (IL-6) and affect the balance of T helper cell cytokines. It has been shown it does help to improve sleeping. There is evidence that it may also modulate the expression of brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF) in rats.
Selank is closed to a related peptide drug Semax, which have been found to inhibit enzymes involved in the degradation of enkephalins and other endogenous regulatory peptides, and this action may be involved in their effects.
Experimental and clinical studies showed the following pharmaclogical effects of Selank:
improvement of learning and memory processes
increased sensory attention
increased mental clarity
restoration of balance of serotonergic and noradrenergic brain system activity
anti-anxiety – inhibition of anxiety
antiviral activity with no negative effects
psychostimulant, anti-asthenic – increased mental energy
stabilization of mood and overall feeling of wellbeing
reversal of anhedonia (restoring the feeling of pleasure)
potential restoration of catecholaminergic system functions after damage due to drug abuse reference
