Osarbon - a drug used in gynecology
 Osarbon (international nonproprietary name - atsetarsol) - antimicrobial and disinfectant agent used in gynecological practice (read: especially the female half of the population). Osarbon can be called one of the "last of the Mohicans" because in modern medicine use of arsenic compounds (which is the atsetarsol) is minimized. But this fact should not cause concern consumers - Osarbon rightly occupies its narrow therapeutic niche in modern gynecology, and is still popular.

Product form

Osarbon has only one dosage form and is available in the form of vaginal suppositories. One suppository contains 250 mg atsetarsola and several auxiliary substances: dextrose, boric acid, and Witepsol (a special role of glucose will be discussed below).

Therefore, if you bought a candle differ in color from the previously acquired, it does not mean that the drug does not meet the quality or falsified.

Pharmacological action

The mechanism of action atsetarsola based on its ability to radically intervene in the metabolism of some protozoa (Trichomonas, amoeba, spirochetes) completely blocking their sulfhydryl enzymatic systems.

Many clinicians in their reviews about Osarbone emphasize the importance of maintaining an acidic environment in the vagina. Such conditions are necessary in order to avoid absorption and subsequent atsetarsola intoxication against its systemic action. With this purpose in the drug was administered glucose. The fact that glucose (sometimes instead of her candles dextrose added that, in fact, is equivalent replacement) - a beautiful "appetizing" substrate for the life of lactobacilli normal vaginal microflora. Recent and create the acidic "entourage" preventing resorption atsetarsola: they promote the process of breakdown of glucose, resulting in released lactic acid. Another ingredient Osarbona - boric acid - also serves to reduce the vaginal pH.
