Pharmacological properties

gyurza venom (venenum macroviperae lebetina), containing phospholipase, phosphodiesterase, hyaluronidase, as well as other active substances, is a key active ingredient in the vipratox liniment. The pharmacological action of Vipratox liniment is caused by toxins that make up the gyurza venom. postsynaptic neurotoxins provide a specific blockade of n-cholinergic receptors of the subsynaptic membrane of skeletal muscle and certain parts of the central nervous system. presynaptic nerve endings are affected by presynaptic neurotoxins, which contribute to increased secretion of mediators. actively acting on cell membranes, membrane-active neurotoxins (cardiotoxins, cytoxins, which are polypeptides in chemical structure), including their depolarization.

Along with a specific effect that directly depends on the composition of the poison, the therapeutic effect of the drug is caused by reflex reactions, the occurrence of which is associated with irritation of the skin receptors, the action of biogenic substances generated by the local action of the drug on the tissues, the effect on the bodys immune system reactions and stimulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary -adrenal axis. When applied locally, gyurza venom has an irritating and analgesic effect.

When applied externally, salicylic acid has an antiseptic, distracting, irritating and keratolytic effect, contributing to the optimal penetration of the active ingredients of the ointment.

Due to its excellent lipophilicity, fir oil easily penetrates the epidermis and irritates the ends of the sensory nerves of both the superficial vessels and deeper tissues.

Due to the inclusion of camphor, the drug has a locally irritating, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect and, by exciting sensitive nerve endings of the skin, improves tissue trophism.
