Bismuth tricalium dicitrate Pharmacodynamics
Gastroprotective and antiulcer with bactericidal activity against Helicobacter pylori. It also has anti-inflammatory and astringent action.
In acidic environment of the stomach insoluble bismuth oxychloride and citrate are precipitated, chelated compounds with protein substrate are formed in the form of a protective film on the surface of ulcers and erosions. Thus, the drug forms a protective layer, which for a long period of time protects the affected areas of the mucous membrane from the effects of aggressive factors. By increasing the synthesis of prostaglandin E, mucus formation and hydrocarbonate secretion, it stimulates the activity of cytoprotective mechanisms, increases resistance of gastrointestinal mucosa to pepsin, hydrochloric acid, enzymes and salts of bile acids. Leads to the accumulation of epidermal growth factor in the defect area. Reduces the activity of pepsin and pepsinogen.
