Description

Simple

A medication used to treat conditions associated with low manganese levels in the body.

Clinical

A transition metal used for supplementation of manganese during Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN).

Overview

Manganese is a transition metal with a molar mass of 54.94g/mol. Manganese is considered critical for human health, and plays important roles in development, metabolism, and the antioxidant system. That said, excessive manganese intake is associated with manganism, a neurodegenerative disorder that causes dopaminergic neuronal death and parkinsonian-like symptoms.

Pharmacology
