Pharmacology and characteristics
Inhibition of liver cell breakdown: Biphenyl dimethyl dicarboxylate inhibits the lipid peroxidation by free radical scavenging action and inhibits covalent binding with hepatotoxic substance which toxic to lipids of microsomes by stabilizing its membrane. Biphenyl dimethyl dicarboxylat markedly improves impaired liver function and relieves the main symptoms of acute or chronic hepatitis.
Protective action against drugs or alcohol: It could be expected that biphenyl dimethyl dicarboxylate has protective action agains liver injury induced by drugs (acetaminophen, antibiotics, antifungal, anticancer drug, pills, etc.) Which widely used in clinical practice or alcohol.
