Pharmacological action

Regulating calcium - a phosphorus exchange, inhibiting a resorption of bones.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics


Effect of drug is defined by active agents, being its part.

Alendronovy acid

Treats bisfosfonata, does not exert a direct impact on formation of a new bone tissue, inhibits the process of a resorption of a bone tissue caused by osteoclasts. Alendronovy acid possesses a tropnost to a bone hydroxyapatite, and, respectively, collects in zones of its active resorption. Action is caused by stimulation of process of apoptosis of osteoclasts. At reception of alendronovy acid the mineralization of a bone raises and its qualitative characteristics are normalized.


The predecessor pharmacological of an active metabolite of D3 vitamin, takes part in regulation of a calcium-phosphorus exchange. Increases absorption of calcium and phosphorus in intestines, raises their reabsorption in kidneys, reduces concentration of parathyroid hormone in blood, normalizes calcic balance at a syndrome of calcic malabsorption.

Influencing processes of a resorption and synthesis of a bone, alfakaltsidol increases the maintenance of minerals in a bone tissue and its elasticity due to strengthening of process of protein synthesis of a matrix of a bone, growth factors and bone morphogenetic proteins. At reception of an alfakaltsidol durability of bones of a skeleton increases, physiologically normal histologic structure of bones forms.

Both actively active ingredients mutually increase effects of each other that provides forming and growth of physiologically normal bone structure. Thanks to synergy effect of these substances it is possible to reduce risk of development of a hypercalcuria, hypocalcemia and hypercalcemia that allows to reduce risk of changes, to increase an animal force and speed of muscular reaction.


Alendronovy acid

Bioavailability at the level of 0,6%. After intake in a therapeutic dose concentration of alendronovy acid in blood below the existing definition limit. Linkng with blood proteins — about 78%. It is distributed originally in soft tissues, and then redistributed in a bone where it also is fixed. Biotransformations it is not exposed, removed through kidneys in not changed look.


Alfakaltsidol is quickly soaked up from a gastrointestinal tract. After a single dose of Cmax it is reached in 10 hours. Bioavailability about 100%. In an organism by a hydroxylation turns into calcitriol. The elimination half-life is removed about 35 hours approximately in equal ratios by kidneys and a liver.
