Erdosteine is a drug that causes a breakdown of mucus, also known as a mucolytic agent. It is a thiol derivative produced for the clinical management of chronic obstructive bronchitis, in addition to infective exacerbations of chronic bronchitis. This drug contains sulfhydryl groups, which are released after erdosteine undergoes hepatic first pass metabolism. Three active metabolites result and possess mucolytic activity in addition to free radical scavenging activity. Erdosteine acts to control mucus production and control its viscosity, while increasing mucociliary transport. It also combats the effects of free radicals resulting from cigarette smoke.
