Pharmacological properties

bearberry leaf preparations in vitro have an antibacterial effect against proteus vulgaris, i.e. coli, ureaplasma urealyticum, mycoplasma hominis, staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas aeruginosa, klebsiella pneumoniae, enterococcus faecalis, streptococcus strains, as well as.

The antibacterial effect is mainly associated with hydroquinone aglycones, which are released from arbutin or from products formed during the excretion of arbutin. When hydroquinone is released from conjugates (hydroquinone glucuronide and sulfate), the enzymatic activity of microorganisms that cause urinary tract infections is blocked.

At the same time, bearberry leaf extract, due to the presence of tannins, reduces the adhesion of bacteria to the host cell.

Pharmacokinetics Bearberry leaf arbutin (a prodrug) is adsorbed in the small intestine and fermented, as well as metabolized in the liver. As a result, hydroquinone conjugates are converted by a second reaction to the form of hydroquinone glucuronide and sulfate. These non-toxic compounds are water soluble and excreted in the urine.

In metabolic studies with the participation of healthy volunteers (Cystinol Akut, coated tablets), 70% of the administered dose of arbutin was excreted in the urine in the form of conjugated hydroquinone for 24 hours.The recovery of the active substance in the form of free hydroquinone was 0.5% of the administered dose of arbutin.

In microbiological studies regarding E. coli, it was found that conjugate fermentation occurs with a wide spectrum of intrabacterial interaction and does not depend on the pH level of urine. In addition, the antiseptic effect increases only in the area where bacteria are present.

Indications
