Pharmacological properties

Pharmacokinetics

Azoximer bromide after oral administration is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, the bioavailability of the drug when administered orally is more than 70%. The maximum plasma concentration is reached 3 hours after ingestion. The pharmacokinetics of Azoximer bromide is linear (plasma concentration is proportional to the dose taken).

Azoximer bromide is a hydrophilic compound. The apparent volume of distribution is approximately 0.5 l / kg, which indicates that the drug is distributed mainly in the interstitial fluid. The half-life is 35 minutes, the half-life is 18 hours.

Azoximer bromide is rapidly distributed throughout all organs and tissues of the body, penetrates through the blood-brain and hemato-ophthalmic barriers. There is no cumulative effect. In the body of Azoximer, bromide undergoes biodegradation to low molecular weight oligomers, it is excreted mainly by the kidneys, with faeces – no more than 3%.

Pharmacodynamics

Azoximer bromide has a complex effect: immunomodulatory, detoxifying, antioxidant, moderate anti-inflammatory.

The basis of the mechanism of the immunomodulatory action of Azoximer bromide is a direct effect on phagocytic cells and natural killers, as well as stimulation of antibody production and synthesis of interferon-alpha and interferon-gamma.

The detoxifying and antioxidant properties of Azoximer bromide are largely determined by the structure and high-molecular nature of the drug.

Azoximer bromide increases the body’s resistance to local and generalized infections of bacterial, fungal and viral etiology. Restores immunity in secondary immunodeficiency states caused by various infections, injuries, complications after surgical operations.

A characteristic feature of Azoximer bromide when applied topically (sublingually) is the ability to activate the factors of early protection of the body against infection: the drug stimulates the bactericidal properties of neutrophils, macrophages, enhances their ability to absorb bacteria, increases the bactericidal properties of saliva and mucous secretion of the upper respiratory tract.

When administered orally, Azoximer bromide also activates lymphoid cells in the intestinal lymph nodes.

Azoximer bromide blocks soluble toxic substances and microparticles, has the ability to remove toxins, salts of heavy metals from the body, inhibits lipid peroxidation, both by intercepting free radicals and by eliminating catalytically active Fe2+ ions. Azoximer bromide reduces the inflammatory response by normalizing the synthesis of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines.

Azoximer bromide is well tolerated, has no mitogenic, polyclonal activity, antigenic properties, does not have an allergenic, mutagenic, embryotoxic, teratogenic and carcinogenic effect.

Azoximer bromide is odorless and tasteless, does not have a local irritating effect when applied to the mucous membranes of the nose and oropharynx.

  • recurrent herpetic infection of the nasal and labial region;
  • exacerbations of chronic foci of infections of the oropharynx, paranasal sinuses, upper respiratory tract, inner and middle ear;
  • secondary immunodeficiency states arising from aging or exposure to adverse factors.

 

Dosage and administration

Use the drug only according to the indications, the method of application and in the doses indicated in the instructions.

If there is no improvement after treatment, or the symptoms worsen, or new symptoms appear, a doctor should be consulted.
