Uromax Pharmacodynamics
Hepatoprotective drug, has a choleretic effect. Reduces the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver, its absorption in the intestine and its concentration in bile, increases the solubility of cholesterol in the biliary system, stimulates the formation and excretion of bile. Reduces lithogenicity of bile and increases the content of bile acids in it. Causes increase in gastric and pancreatic secretion, increases lipase activity. It has a hypoglycemic effect. Causes partial or complete dissolution of cholesterol stones when ingested, reduces the saturation of bile with cholesterol, which promotes the mobilization of cholesterol from gallstones. It has an immunomodulatory effect, affects immunological reactions in the liver: it reduces the expression of some antigens on the membrane of hepatocytes, affects the number of T-lymphocytes, interleukin-2 formation, reduces the number of eosinophils.
Pediatric population.
Cystic fibrosis (cystic fibrosis).
According to clinical reports, there is a long history (up to 10 years or more) of treatment with ursodeoxycholic acid in pediatric patients with hepatobiliary disease associated with cystic fibrosis (CFAHD). There is evidence that therapy with ursodeoxycholic acid can decrease bile duct proliferation, slow down the development of lesions detected by histological examination, and even promote reversal of hepatobiliary changes if therapy is started at early stages of CFAHD. In order to optimize the effectiveness of treatment, ursodeoxycholic acid therapy should be started as early as possible after the diagnosis of CFAHD.
