Products Description: Folinic Acid is the formyl derivative of tetrahydrofolic acid which is a metabolite and active form of folic acid. It is effective in the treatment of megaloblastic anemia caused by folic acid deficiency and is a potent antidote for both the haematompoietic and reticuloendothelial toxic effects of folic acid antagonist, e.g. methotrexate, pyrimethamine, trimethoprim. In some cancers, Folinic Acid enters and ‘rescues’ normal cells, from the toxic effect of folic acid antagonists, due to a defference in membrane transport mechanism. This principle is applied in high dose methotrexate therapy with Folinic Acid rescue.
