Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
Pepsin - what is it?
According to the Pharmacopeia, pepsin is an enzyme that is part of the gastric juice that produces the mucous membrane of the stomach. It has also been established that this enzyme ensures the cleavage of virtually all proteins of plant and animal origin. In addition, trypsin and chymotrypsin, which are enzymes of the pancreas, participate in this process. However, it is this enzyme that breaks down proteins without showing them specificity, that is, it acts in an acidic environment.
Some diseases of the gastrointestinal tract cause a significant decrease or lack of production of hydrochloric acid, which leads to insufficient digestive activity of pepsin, and, accordingly, gastric juice. Therefore, patients are prescribed replacement therapy in the form of drugs based on it. For example, when taking the enzyme drug Acidin-Pepsin, one of its constituents - betaine hydrochloride is converted in the stomach to hydrochloric acid, activating the enzyme, which improves digestion.

The main indications for the administration of Acidin-Pepsin are various gastrointestinal diseases, which are characterized by a decreased secretory function of the stomach. Therefore, the drug is recommended for:
Achilia - the lack of synthesis of hydrochloric acid and other digestive enzymes with atrophic gastritis, nutrition with a lack of proteins and vitamins, liver cirrhosis, malignant form of anemia, endocrine disorders;
period after removal of part of the stomach.
