Composition Dembrexine 5 mg/g.
Description Chemical name: trans-4-[(3,5-dibromo-2-hydroxybenzyl)-amino]cyclohexanol hydrochloride monohydrate.
Bronchial mucolytic agent which increases secretion of the serous cells in the glands of the nasal, tracheal and bronchial cells and in type II alveolar cells.
Surfactant stabilises alveoli, protects the respiratory epithelium from the adhesion of virulent bacteria and supports phagocytosis. Sputolysin compensates for any reduction in pulmonary surfactant (reduction of surface tension in the alveolar region) during stress, e.g. hunger, transport, cold or during infection or pneumonia.
Sputolysin has been shown to have a cough suppressant effect comparable to that of codeine. It increases antibiotic levels in the bronchial section and pulmonary tissue. It has been administered concurrently with a range of antibiotics and antibacterials.
