Mucolytic drug. Acetylcysteine is a derivative of the amino acid cysteine. It has a mucolytic effect, facilitates the discharge of sputum due to a direct effect on the rheological properties of sputum.
The action is due to the ability to break the disulfide bonds of the mucopolysaccharide chains and cause depolymerization of sputum flour proteins, which leads to a decrease in the viscosity of sputum.
The drug remains active in the presence of purulent sputum.
It has an antioxidant effect due to the ability of its reactive sulfhydryl groups (SH- To bind to oxidative radicals and thus neutralize them.
In addition, acetylcysteine promotes the synthesis of glutathione, an important component of the antioxidant system and chemical detoxification of the body.
The antioxidant effect of acetylcysteine increases the protection of cells from the damaging effect of free radical oxidation, characteristic of an intense inflammatory reaction.
With the prophylactic use of acetylcysteine, there is a decrease in the frequency and severity of exacerbations in patients with chronic bronchitis and cystic fibrosis.
Suction and distribution
Absorption is high. Bioavailability when ingested is 10%, which is due to the pronounced effect of the "first passage" through the liver. Reach time C max in the blood plasma is 1-3 hours.
Binding to blood plasma proteins - 50%. It penetrates the placental barrier. There is no data on the ability of acetylcysteine to penetrate the BBB and be excreted in breast milk.
Metabolism and excretion
It is rapidly metabolized in the liver with the formation of a pharmacologically active metabolite - cysteine, as well as diacetylcysteine, cystine and mixed disulfides.
It is excreted by the kidneys in the form of inactive metabolites (inorganic sulfates, diacetylcysteine). T 1/2 is about 1 hour.
Pharmacokinetics in special clinical cases
Impaired liver function leads to prolongation of T 1/2 up to 8 h.
