Indications of the newfound Tafen

Tafen novolayzer appointed as part of a comprehensive treatment for patients with bronchial asthma or chronic obstruction of the lungs.

Release form

In the cardboard box, there is one inhaler device and a removable cartridge with 2.18 g of pulverulent mass, which corresponds to 200 doses of 200 μg of the active ingredient budesonide.

Powdered white mass is a means for inhalation from the category of the crococorticoids - Tafen novolayzer.


Inhalation drug Tafen novolayzer belongs to the category of synthetic glucocorticoid medicines with a powerful external anti-inflammatory property and insignificant systemic penetration. With inhalation through the mouth of the Tafen, the novolaser demonstrates an anti-inflammatory effect on the mucous tissues of the bronchi.

The active ingredient Tafen novolayzer - budesonide, - deactivates various cellular structures involved in the development of the inflammation reaction. Such structures include eosinophils, lymphocytes, neutrophils, macrophages, etc. Among the additional actions of the medication, the inhibition of the release of mediators of the inflammatory process should be especially emphasized: this property allows us to restore the function of respiration and lower the excessive reactivity of the bronchi.

The basic substance of Tafen novolayzer - budesonide, is a kind of epimeric mixing (epimer 22R and epimer 22S - 1: 1).

With the inhalation administration of the Tafen novolaser, about a quarter of the injected volume is found in the lungs. The rest of the drug settles in the tissues of the oral cavity, trachea and larynx, and also enters the digestive system.

The indicators of the total bioavailability of budesonide are small, since about 90% of the component found in the bloodstream is inactivated in the liver. The maximum possible serum amount can be achieved about half an hour after inhalation.

Tafen novolayzer easily subjected to distribution in the body and forms links with plasma albumin by 85%. The activity of glucocorticosteroids in the form of metabolites is less than 1% of the basic substance of Tafen novolayzer.

Metabolic products are excreted mainly through the system of renal filtration and intestines. The half-life can be from 2 to 3 hours, and in childhood - up to an hour and a half.

During the last action, a click should occur and the control indicator at the bottom of the inhaler should change from red to green: the device is ready for use.

The patient should exhale deeply the air from the lungs, then bring the nozzle to the oral cavity and take a quick and deep breath. With the proper inhalation, another click will be heard, and the indicator will again change color to red.

After inhaling, the patient should hold his breath for a while and exhale slowly.

There have been no cases of acute overdose with the drug Tafen novolayzer to date. It is assumed that with prolonged use of the drug, there may be signs of hypercorticism with oppression of the functionality of the adrenal cortex. If this happens, then gradually reduce the amount of the drug Tafen novolayzer to the minimum therapeutic dosage, as well as simultaneously perform symptomatic treatment.


Interactions with other drugs

It is not advisable to conduct simultaneous treatment with Tafen novolaser and glucocorticoids of systemic value, as this increases the risk of developing undesirable side effects.

Preliminary inhalation of β 2 -adrenomimetic drugs promotes the expansion of the bronchial lumen, facilitates the entry of the Tafen novolayzer into the respiratory system and enhances its effect.

Since the metabolic processes involving the active ingredient budesonide occur with the participation of cytochrome P 450 -3A, it is recommended to guard against the simultaneous use of such drugs as ketoconazole, oleandomycin, cyclosporine or ethinyl estradiol: the combination of Tafen novolayzer with the listed medicines may lead to an increase in serum content of budesonide.
