Cytoflavin in the complex therapy of multiple sclerosis
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30499494

Abstract
AIM:
To evaluate the efficacy of cytoflavin inclusion in the complex therapy of patients with multiple sclerosis in the remitting form during the period of exacerbation.
MATERIAL AND METHODS:
The results of therapy of 41 patients matched for sex, age and parameters of clinical and laboratory data were analyzed. Depending on the scheme of therapy, patients were divided into 2 groups: patients of the first group (n=22) received hormonal therapy with methylprednisolone. Patients of group II (n=19) received cytoflavin. The efficacy of treatment was assessed by a set of clinical and laboratory indicators in dynamics - before the start of therapy, with a 10-day interval and after treatment. The neurological status was assessed with the most commonly used scales (functional system scale (FS), EDSS scale), also neuroimaging data were assessed.
RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:
The inclusion of cytoflavin as an antioxidant and neuroprotective agent in the therapy of patients with multiple sclerosis in the acute phase increased the efficacy of basic (hormonal) therapy, which is manifested in a significant decrease in the severity of neurologic symptoms and visual system disorders and fewer cases of non-response to treatment.

There are 209 references on PubMed for cytolfavin spanning 18 years. All but one or two are written by Russians, most of the articles are in Russian.

Cytoflavin is a mixture of...

• Inosine
• Succinic Acid
• Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin Mononucleotide)
• Vitamin B3 (Nicotinamide)

Interesting. It looks like 'Cyto' could be a brand name and 'Flavin 7' a product name?

This is what I found for cytoflavin.

https://medicalmed.us/tsitoflavin.htm

...and here are the PubMed references.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=cytoflavin

...and, no, I wasn't about to test a Russian made supplement. Though the combination of ingredients could likely be replicated using US made supplements.
