Olsalazine

Definition of the noun Olsalazine

What does Olsalazine mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. An anti-inflammatory drug used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease.

Explanation

Olsalazine: A prodrug of mesalamine with anti-inflammatory activity. Unabsorbed olsalazine passes through gastrointestinal tract and is cleaved by azoreductases, produced by microflora in colon, into 2 active molecules of 5-ASA. 5-ASA exerts its anti-inflammatory action locally by inhibiting cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase activities, thereby reducing the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. In addition, mesalamine may act as a scavenger of reactive oxygen free radicals.
