Pharmacological effect Ursosan:
Hepatoprotective drug. It also has cholelytic, hypolipidemic, hypocholesterolemic and immunomodulatory effects. Possessing high polar properties, ursodeoxycholic acid (UDHC) is incorporated into the hepatocyte, cholangiocyte and GI-CT epitheliocyte membrane, stabilizes its structure and protects the cell from the damaging effect of toxic bile acid salts, thereby reducing the cytotoxic effect thereof. It forms non-toxic mixed mycelles with lipophilic (toxic) bile acids, which reduces the ability of gastric reflux to damage cell membranes in cholestatic liver disease, biliary reflux gastritis, and reflux esophagitis.
