Mukoregulatory activity depends on the increase in secretion of less viscous sialomucins by goblet cells. On the epithelial cells of bronchial mucosa adhesion of bacteria decreases. This is due to a decrease in the viscosity of sputum and an increase in mucociliary clearance.
The disinfecting effect of the drug is due to the action of a free sulfhydryl group, which affects the electrophilic oxidative toxins, neutralizing them.
