Characteristics

Acetylcysteine is a real mucolytic that fluidizes mucosal or muscopurulent secretion of the respiratory ways. Its prompt and effective action is due to the free sulphhydryl group (-S-H) which is able to attack and break sulphur links S-S that cause aggregation of proteins in mucus resulting in high viscosity. Acetylcysteine action on any purulent component of secretions dis due to its ability to depolymerize nucleic acids. Because of tits mucolytic action Equimucil reduces risk of complications caused by thick mucus secretions and consequent reduced respiratory function. NAC also improves the antioxidant system, one of the most important intracellular defence mechanisms. NAC, antagonises the free radicals of oxygen that are largely responsible for degenerative inflammation of the lungs in horses.
