The chemical in propofol, 2,6-di-isopropylphenol, is insoluble in aqueous solutions, so the solution is formulated as a nonpyrogenic emulsion containing soybean oil, purified egg phosphatide
, and glycerol.
2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) imitates the phosphatide
of the cellular member and with no antigenicity, and is super-hydrophilic.
Egg and soy Allergies: Patients allergic to eggs or soy should not receive propofol, as it is formulated for IV administration as an emulsion containing soybean oil and purified egg phosphatide
Topcithin sunflower lecithin can also replace synthetically produced emulsifiers, such as ammonium phosphatide
and citric acid esters of mono and di-glycerides, without compromising on performance, taste or appearance.
Intravenous propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) includes lipid suspensions that contain egg lecithin/ phosphatide
and soy oil, ingredients that have raised "concern regarding administration of propofol in patients with egg and soy allergy," explained Dr.
In 1916, McLean, a second-year medical student at Johns Hopkins University, was working under the guidance of Howell investigating pro-coagulant preparations, when he isolated a fat-soluble phosphatide
Nutritional modifiers of aging brain function: use of uridine and other phosphatide
precursors to increase formation of brain synapses.
Other contributors review research findings on the effects of high-protein diets on weight loss, the use of phosphatide
precursors to promote synaptogenesis, zinc-related signaling pathways in immune cells, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and low-carb diets, and genetic variation in human eating behavior.
