Anvase 1500 Iu Injection 5 Ml
Hyaluronidase is a protein enzyme injected into the body to treat dehydration. It helps in increasing the absorption of other injected medications. Hyaluronidase is also used to help contrast dyes in the body to show clear images of X-rays or scans.
How does the drug work ?
Hyaluronidase works by rapid spreading of injected fluid into the body which increases the absorption of injected fluids. Hyaluronidase hydrolyzes the hyaluronic acid by splitting the glucosaminidic bond between C1 of the glucosamine moiety and C4 of the glucuronic acid. This increases the diffusion of injected fluids and increases their absorption.
What are the common side effects ?The drug may cause pain, redness, and itching at the injection site. Swelling in the hands, feet, and other body areas may also be seen. Other common side effects include bleeding, blistering, discoloration of the skin.
