Romurtide is used as a hematopoietic agent for restoration of leukopenia in cancer patients treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy (see also: hematopoiesis).
Romurtide is a synthetic muramyl dipeptide (MDP) derivative that is a potent inducer of cytokines. It is an MDP derivative, MDP-Lys(L18) = N-alpha-(N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutaminyl)-N epsilon-stearoyl-L-lysine), called also Muroctasin. It promotes megakaryocytopoiesis through stimulation of cytokine production and accelerates peripheral platelet recovery in nonhuman primate chemotherapy model.
