Pharmacological properties

Longidase has a prolonged proteolytic activity, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, chelating, and moderate anti-inflammatory effects.


The active substance of the Longidase preparation, bovhyaluronidase azoxymer, is a conjugate of the proteolytic enzyme hyaluronidase and a high-molecular carrier from the group of poly-1,4-ethylenepiperazine N-oxide derivatives, which has the entire spectrum of pharmacological effects inherent in drugs with hyaluronidase activity.

Specific substrates of hyaluronidase are chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin-4-sulfate, chondroitin-6-sulfate, and other glycosaminoglycans, which form the basis of the intercellular substance of the connective tissue (extracellular matrix). Due to depolymerization (breaking the bond between C 1 acetylglucosamine and C 4glucuronic / induronic acid), the basic properties of glycosaminoglycans change: viscosity, hygroscopicity, and the ability to bind metal ions decrease, the permeability of tissue barriers temporarily increases, fluid movement in the intercellular space is accelerated, and the elasticity of connective tissue improves. The pharmacological effect of bovgialuronidase azoxymer is expressed in the flattening of scars, reducing tissue swelling, increasing the volume of motion of joints, reducing contractures and preventing their formation, and inhibiting the adhesion process.

As a result of biochemical, immunological, histological and electron microscopic studies, it was proved that Longidase does not have a damaging effect on normal connective tissue, it has a destructive effect exclusively on the connective tissue changed in composition and structure in the area of fibrosis.

An increase in the duration of action of the enzyme is achieved by its covalent binding to azoxymer (physiologically active polymeric carrier). Longidase has an anti-fibrotic effect, facilitates the course of the inflammatory process in the acute phase, normalizes the synthesis of inflammatory mediators such as interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), increasing or decreasing it depending on the initial level, enhances the body's humoral immune response and resistance to infection.

The pronounced anti-fibrotic efficacy of Longidase is provided by the conjugation of hyaluronidase and the carrier, which greatly increases the resistance of the drug to denaturation and the effect of inhibitors. When heated to 37 ° C, the enzymatic activity of bovhyaluronidase azoxymer remains for 20 days, under the same conditions, native hyaluronidase loses its activity in 1 day.

Due to the simultaneous local presence of the hyaluronidase enzyme and the carrier (capable of binding heparin, iron ions, copper, as well as other enzyme inhibitors and collagen synthesis stimulators, which are released during the hydrolysis of matrix components - glycosaminoglycans), Longidase not only depolymerizes in fibrous-granxulomatous tissue, but also connective tissue and inhibits the reverse regulatory reaction aimed at the synthesis of connective tissue elements.

With subcutaneous or intramuscular administration in conjunction with other injectable drugs, Longidaza enhances their absorption, and with the introduction of local anesthetics, it accelerates pain relief.

Bovhyaluronidase azoxymer is a practically non-toxic compound that does not interfere with the normal function of the immune system. In experiments on animals, it was determined that the substance does not affect the reproductive function of rats (both males and females), the pre- and postnatal development of their offspring, and also does not have a mutagenic and carcinogenic effect.

It has been experimentally proven that in Longidase, the irritating and allergenic effect of the enzyme hyaluronidase is reduced. The drug used in therapeutic doses is well tolerated by patients and does not cause local / general hypersensitivity reactions.

The use of therapeutic doses of Longidase during surgery or after surgical treatment does not adversely affect recovery in the postoperative period, does not cause progression of the infectious process, does not slow down bone resorption.


After parenteral administration, bovgialuronidase, azoxymer rapidly penetrates into the systemic circulation. C max (maximum concentration) in the blood reaches 20-25 minutes later. With rectal administration of Longidase, the time to reach C max is 1 hour. The substance is distinguished by a high rate of distribution in tissues and organs.

The half-life reaches about half an hour. T 1/2 (half-life) due to intramuscular injection is 36 hours, after subcutaneous administration - approximately 45 hours, with rectal administration - 42–84 hours. The apparent volume of distribution (V d) is 0.43 l / kg.

Conjugation does not reduce the high bioavailability of hyaluronidase, which, with any method of administration of Longidase, remains at a level of at least 90%.

Bovhyaluronidase azoxymer penetrates into all tissues and organs, including through the blood-brain and blood-ophthalmic barriers. In the course of research, the absence of accumulation of the substance in the tissues was established.

Hyaluronidase is metabolized by hydrolysis, the carrier breaks down to oligomers, low molecular weight compounds, excreted mainly through the kidneys in two phases. On the first day, 45-50% of the substance is excreted by the kidneys, up to 3% through the intestines, after which the rate of excretion decreases. The drug is completely eliminated on days 4–5.

Influence on the ability to drive vehicles and complex mechanisms

The use of Longidaza does not affect the ability to perform types of work that require increased concentration of attention and accelerated psychomotor reactions, including driving a vehicle.

Application during pregnancy and lactation

Due to the lack of experience in the clinical use of Longidase, pregnant and lactating women are contraindicated in prescribing the drug during these periods.

Pediatric use

Due to the lack of experience in the clinical use of Longidase in pediatrics, it is prohibited to use:

  • Lyophilisate for the preparation of a solution for intramuscular and subcutaneous administration - for children and adolescents under 18;
  • Suppositories for rectal or vaginal administration - for children under 12 years of age.

For adolescents aged 12 to 18 years, suppositories are administered only rectally.

With impaired renal function

The use of all forms of Longidase is contraindicated in patients with acute renal failure.

For patients with chronic renal failure, the drug is prescribed no more than once a week.

Drug interactions

The use of Longidase is indicated in combination with antibiotics, bronchodilators, glucocorticosteroids, cytostatics, antifungal, antiviral, antihistamines.

Salicylates, adrenocorticotropic hormone, cortisone, high doses of estrogens and antihistamines can reduce the action of the enzyme hyaluronidase.

Longidase increases the bioavailability of drugs and accelerates the action of local anesthetics (with simultaneous use).

When prescribing Longidaza in combination with other drugs, to increase their bioavailability, it is necessary to take into account the degree of increase in their absorption and systemic action.
