Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

Sulfasalazinum — anti-inflammatory drug. Has immunosuppressive action in connecting fabric, in the thickness of an intestinal wall and serous liquid (there is its greatest concentration). Thanks to indestinal flora drug breaks up:

  • to the sulphapyridine suppressing proliferation of cells of T-killers and transformation of lymphocytes;
  • to 5-aminosalicylic acid (Mesalazin) — the most significant connection for treatment of inflammatory diseases of a large intestine. Action mechanism: binding of radicals of free oxygen, local inhibition in an intestinal wall of cyclooxygenase and a lipoxygenase that is necessary for the prevention of formation of prostaglandins, leukotrienes and other mediators of an inflammation.


About 30% of a dose are absorbed in a wall of a small intestine, other 70% — break up under the influence of indestinal flora of a large intestine. Further active agent gets together with bile into intestines, and also in insignificant quantity is emitted in not changed form with urine. Elimination half-life of 5-10 h.

The released sulphapyridine in a liver is metabolized (on the way of acetylation, a hydroxylation, conjugation together with glucuronic acid), removal happens through kidneys. About 30% of a mesalazin are absorbed and acetylated by a liver, removal — kidneys with urine or in not changed form — with a stake.
