Product Description

Ipratropium bromide produces bronchodilation by competitive inhibition of cholinergic receptors on bronchial smooth muscle, which antagonises the action of acetylcholine at its membrane-bound receptor and thus decreases the formation of cGMP. It may also inhibit acetylcholine-enhanced release of chemical mediators by blocking cholinergic receptors at the surface of mast cells.rnAs with other inhaled anticholinergic agents, ipratropium bromide has been found, in experimental bronchospasm, to be most effective against cholinergic challenges, providing little protection against serotonin or histamine-induced bronchospasm, and a moderate protection against bronchospasm induced by propranolol or common allergens.
