INSTRUCTION FOR THE SPECIALIST.
The description of the drug was approved by the manufacturer for the 2006 print edition.
Lipidosterol extract of palm fruits Serenoa repens. Has antiandrogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-edematous and antiproliferative effects, selectively manifested at the level of the prostate gland. In this case, the drug does not affect the level of sex hormones in the blood plasma, does not affect the potency and libido and does not change the level of prostate-specific antigen in the blood plasma.
The mechanism of local antiandrogenic action is due to the inhibition of the synthesis of dihydrotestosterone (due to the inhibition of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase I and II types) and its fixation to the cytosolic receptors, which prevents the penetration of the hormone into the nucleus. As a result, protein synthesis is reduced.
The mechanism of local anti-inflammatory action is due to the fact that lipidosterol extract of Serenoa repens inhibits the activity of phospholipase A2 and the release of arachidonic acid, thereby reducing the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, which are inflammatory mediators. Permixon during the first weeks of therapy reduces capillary permeability and vascular stasis, reduces swelling and inflammation in the prostate, eliminates the compression of the neck of the bladder and urinary canal, improving the urodynamics.
The local antiproliferative effect of the drug is manifested by a decrease in the activity of growth factors (primarily epidermal and fibroblastic) and the acceleration of apoptosis of prostate cells, which is reflected in inhibition of growth and a subsequent decrease in the volume of the prostate gland.
Thus, the drug Permixon contributes, on the one hand, to a decrease in the severity of the pathological symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (dysuria, pollakiuria, nocturia, pain and tension when urinating, incomplete emptying of the bladder), increased volume and strength of urination. On the other hand, against the background of the use of the drug, further growth and increase in the volume of the prostate gland is somewhat slowed down.
Data on the pharmacokinetics of the Permixon preparation are not available.
- benign hyperplasia (adenoma) of the prostate of the I and II stages.
