CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

PHARMACODYNAMICS

Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are two different but related digestive enzymes produced and released by the pancreas. Both enzymes function within the intestine to help break down large protein molecules that we ingest in the foods we eat. Without this enzyme-aided digestion, you would be unable to get the essential amino acids required for tissue building and repair. Because these two enzymes break down proteins, they classified as proteases.

 

PHARMACOKINETICS

The cells in the pancreas synthesize and produce digestive enzymes that breakdown fats (lipases), starches (amylases), and proteins (proteases). Pancreatic proteases can be divided into several families of enzymes that differ in structure and catalytic effect in how they interact with the peptide bonds of proteins. These enzyme types of proteases are serine, threonine, cysteine, aspartic and metallo proteases. Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are two types of proteases in the serine family. Proteases are being used more and more medically and diagnostically in medicine for a multitude of health reasons including the treatment of pancreatic disease and cancer metastases. Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are originally synthesized in the pancreas in the inactive form of zymogen precursors (trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen) for the purpose of stopping unnecessary cellular activity and controlling when and where enzyme activity occurs.

 

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

People take Chymotrypsin orally or as a shot to reduce redness and swelling associated with pockets of infection (abscesses), ulcers, surgery or traumatic injuries; and to help loosen phlegm in asthma, bronchitis, lung diseases, and sinus infections.

Usage

Cataract surgery, when used by a healthcare professional.

Burns: There is some evidence that Chymotrypsin might decrease tissue destruction in burn patients.

Hand Fractures: Taking Chymotrypsin by mouth seems to be effective for reducing redness and swelling associated with hand fractures.

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Hypersensitivity to any of the Ingredients.

 

INTERACTIONS

Tell your doctor or pharmacist before use if you are taking any regular medication on prescription or over the counter products. Rarely, Chymotrypsin might cause an allergic reaction when taken by mouth. Symptoms include itching, shortness of breath, swelling of the lips or throat, shock, loss of consciousness, and death.

 

SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS & WARNINGS

Glaucoma, as a complication of use of Chymotrypsin in cataract extractions pt, has occurred usually with 2-5 days after operation. There have been practically no indications of longer persisting glaucoma, from use of the enzyme.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of Chymotrypsin during pregnancy and breast- feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

 

TOXICOLOGICAL DATA

They split secondary amide or peptide bonds, carboxyIic or phenolic ester bonds & even carbon-carborn bonds. Their main function is to hydrolyze peptide bonds during the intestinal digestion of proteins.
