Urso (Ursodiol) as an effective modern means for treating primary biliary cirrhosis and small cholesteric gallstones
Instead of surgical removal of small gallstones and as a means for curing primary biliary cirrhosis, one of the most effective drugs is Urso (Ursodiol).
The offered drug belongs to one of the secondary bile acids, produced by intestinal bacteria during metabolism.
The mechanism and principles of this drug’s effect can be described as follows:
One of the functions of human liver is to produce primary bile acids, which are stored in the gall bladder. Having been secreted into the intestine, primary bile acids are transformed into the secondary bile acids by intestinal bacteria in the course of metabolism. Both primary and secondary bile acids help the human organism to digest fats. Ursodeoxycholic acid keeps the balance of cholesterol regulated by decreasing the amount of cholesterol, produced by the liver. It slows down the absorption speed of cholesterol in the intestine. This effect is reached by destroying micelles, containing cholesterol. That is why Urso (Ursodiol) is used for non-surgical treatment of the gallstones, cholesteric by origin.
Some types of bile acids facilitate development of colon tumor (such as deoxycholic acid), while other, like ursodeoxycholic acid are considered chemopreventive, because of their properties, which induce cellular differentiation and/or cellular ageing in colon epithelial cells. They are supposed to prevent apoptosis.
The ability of ursodeoxycholic acid to restrain immune reaction such as immune cell phagocytosis has been proved experimentally.
Pharmaceutical peculiarities of Urso (Ursodiol)
Urso (Ursodiol) dissolves cholesterol and consequently destroys the gallstones. In case a patient quits taking the medication, new gallstones may form during the next five years. This may happen if the medical condition, which caused the formation of gallstones, would recur. This is the reason why the described drug cannot fully substitute the surgical treatment of gallstones. When applying the medicine for this purpose, it is essential to undergo the whole course of treatment. You can buy Urso (Ursodiol) at our online shop any time you like.
