Zelnite® is an injection drug product containing selenium (Se). Zelnite® has been approved by Taiwan TFDA to improve patient’s blood Se level and further enhance immune system.
Selenium is an essential element required for over 20 seleno-proteins to activate their physiological functions. Low selenium concentration has been associated with severe diseases like sepsis, HIV, and cancer. The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (e.g., ESPEN) recommends patients with severe diseases to replenish selenium through IV injection or as supplement in total parenteral nutrition (TPN). in Patients who receive long term TPN with Zelnite® will restore the blood selenium level and improve the GPx activity back to normal.
