Description

Carbocysteine-Vertex Pharmacodynamics
Carbocysteine being a mucolytic, influences gel-phase of endobronchial secretion, breaking disulfide bridges of glycoproteins and thus reducing viscosity and increasing elasticity of secretion. Carbocysteine activates sialic transferase – an enzyme of bocalytic cells of bronchial mucosa, normalizes the quantitative ratio of acidic and neutral sialomucins, contributes to regeneration of mucosa, normalizes its structure, activates activity of ciliated epithelium, restores secretion of immunologically active IgA (specific protection), improves mucociliary clearance. The effect is dose-dependent.

Indications
-Acute and chronic bronchopulmonary diseases and diseases of ENT organs, accompanied by formation of viscous, hardly discharged sputum (tracheitis, bronchitis, tracheobronchitis, bronchial asthma, bronchiectatic disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)) and mucus (inflammatory diseases of the middle ear, nose and its accessory sinuses -rinitis, otitis media, sinusitis);
-Preparation of the patient for bronchoscopy or bronchography.
