Pharmacodynamics

Vitaprost® has an organotropic effect on the prostate gland. It reduces the degree of edema, leukocyte infiltration of the prostate gland, it normalizes the secretory function of epithelial cells, increases the number of lecithin granules in the secretion of acini, stimulates the muscle tone of the bladder. The drug improves microcirculation in the prostate by reducing thrombus formation, antiplatelet activity, and prevents the development of venous thrombosis in the prostate gland.

Based on clinical studies, Vitaprost® has been proven to moderately reduce the prostate volume. The drug reduces the severity of obstructive and irritative symptoms in case of the benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is reflected in an increase in the maximum and average volumetric flow rates of urine and a decrease in the volume of residual urine.

Clinical studies have shown that the use of Vitaprost® reduces the likelihood of the development of exacerbations of chronic abacterial prostatitis; it does not cause changes in clinical and biochemical blood test, or in general urinary test. The effectiveness of the use of Vitaprost® for the prevention of exacerbations of chronic abacterial prostatitis is estimated by medical researchers as 97.5%.

Vitaprost® normalizes parameters of the secretion of the prostate gland and ejaculate. The drug reduces pain and discomfort caused by prostatitis, it eliminates dysuric phenomena, improves the copulative function.
