Desloratadine Pharmacodynamics
Long-acting antihistamine drug. Desloratadine is the primary active metabolite of loratadine. It inhibits the cascade of allergic inflammatory reactions, including the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including interleukins (IL) IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-13, the release of pro-inflammatory chemokines (RANTES), production of superoxide anions by activated polymorphonuclear neutrophils, adhesion and chemotaxis of eosinophils, release of adhesion molecules such as P-selectin, IgE-mediated release of histamine, prostaglandin D2 and leukotriene C4. Thus, it prevents and facilitates the development of allergic reactions, has antipruritic and antiexudative effects, reduces capillary permeability, prevents the development of tissue edema, spasm of smooth muscles.
The drug has no effect on the central nervous system (CNS), has no sedative effect and does not affect the speed of psychomotor reactions. In clinical and pharmacological studies of desloratadine use in the recommended therapeutic zone no prolongation of the QT interval on electrocardiogram (ECG) was noted.
The action of desloratadine begins within 30 minutes after oral administration and lasts for 24 hours.
