API Lysozyme

API LYSOZYME hydrochloride is our highest purity pharmaceutical-grade LYSOZYME. Produced from hen egg-white following stringent cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines, our API LYSOZYME is used globally as the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) of choice across pharmaceutical, health, and wellness industries.

LYSOZYME is an active part of the natural defence systems of nearly all living organisms. As the first line of defence for humans, LYSOYME exerts its effect as an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory. This makes an effective API across pharmaceutical, dermatological, and oral care applications.

Taking inspiration from nature, the broad spectrum activities of API LYSOZYME are exploited in product formulations targeting colds, infections, and inflammatory conditions. Pharmaceutical applications of API LYSOZYME range from oral, oromucosal and dental to nasal, and ocular uses.

Product properties
Biological Properties

API Lysozyme embodies three main biological activities which are of significance to human health. These include antibacterial action, antiviral action and modulation of the immune response.

The antibacterial effects of Lysozyme are achieved through destabilization and degradation of the bacterial cell wall, while the antiviral activities have been attributed to interference with synctia formation and binding of viral nucleic acids. The antiinflammatory and immune potentiating properties of lysozyme have been well documented, however the mode of action is complex and has not yet been fully elucidated.

Bioseutica is the first company in the world to have a DRUG MASTER FILE for the use of API Lysozyme in pharmaceutical applications. 

Pharmacological Properties

Oral Lysozyme acts directly in the oral cavity or gastrointestinal tract to impede the growth and colonization of pathogenic bacteria.

Oral Lysozyme also works indirectly through interactions with immune inductive sites of the gastrointestinal tract and systemic components of the immune system. The result is an immune modulating effect that is beneficial in a range of health afflictions where the immune system is in a depressed or imbalanced state.

Topical Lysozyme acts locally at the site of tissue damage to control microbial dissemination and inflammation. These activities combine to speed the reparative process of damaged skin.
