Mucomist® Respirator Solution is a derivative of the amino acid, cysteine. It acts mostly on the mucoproteins, through its free sulphydryl groups, to open disulphide bonds and lower the viscosity of the mucus. Furthermore, acetylcysteine exerts an antioxidant action by interacting directly with the oxidant radicals. The action of acetylcysteine in limiting hepatotoxicity after paracetamol (acetaminophen) overdosage is probably due to the replenishing of hepatic stores of glutathione.
