PHARMACODYNAMICS: Mitux, the main active ingredient - Acetylcysteine, is a mucolytic agent, impacts on the gel phase of viscous mucus by the splitting of disulphide bonds in glycoproteins. The drug is used to reduce the viscosity of pulmonary sputum, thus facilitating expectoration.

PHARMACOKINETICS: After oral administration, Acetylcysteine is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and obtains the top plasma concentration within 0.5 - 1 hour. Because of its particular affinity to pulmonary tissues and bronchial secretions, Acetylcysteine concentration is effectively reached in 3 hours.
