Enterosgel is a gel-type enterosorbent. Possesses adsorbing and detoxifying activity.

The medicament is a spatially formed matrix of organosilicon type, which creates pores filled with liquid. The established pore sizes help to form the sorption selectivity. The drug sorbs and excretes from the body mainly toxic elements of the medium molecular type.

Enterosgel has a hydrophobic effect, it does not adhere to mucous membranes, does not damage them, and also does not penetrate into tissues.

  • acute stages of intestinal infections of any origin, in combination treatment (for example, dysentery , toxic infections, dysbiosis, , salmonellosis and diarrhea, which has a non-infectious etiology);
