Trypsin and Chymotrypsin present in Chymosin are active enzymes (substances that speed up chemical reactions of the body). These enzymes have anti-inflammatory, anti-oedematous, anti-oxidant and fibrinolytic properties which help in resolving signs of inflammation and thus speeding up the recovery.
MECHANISM OF ACTION
Proteolytic Action: Chymosin causes proteolysis by breaking down proteins into peptones and into smaller fragments called amino acids. The peptones and amino acids are absorbed by the cells of the small walls.
Fibrinoytic Action: It facilitates the action of fibrolytic agent “PLASMIN” that restores circulation, resolving edema and hematoma. It promotes phagocytosis to remove debris.
Vascular Response Modulator: the drug increases the levels of APR which minimizes the necrotic damage and scarring.
Modulation of inflammation: the drug reduces the proinflammatory mediators. The fibrin blocked microcirculation could be cleared earlier by the administration of the enzymes and hence the inflammation resolves quicker and healing commences at an early stage.
