Pharmacological properties


Rovatinex promotes disintegration (destruction) and elimination of crushed stones of the kidney tissue and urinary tract. Borneol, the active substance of a drug from the terpene class, undergoes metabolic transformation and is excreted in the urine, mainly in the form of glucuronides, which leads to an increase in the solubility of calcium salts, which are the main structural component of kidney and urinary tract stones. According to the results of a number of experiments on animals, Rovatinex also has an inhibitory effect on the formation of these calculi.

The active components of the drug show an antispasmodic effect, facilitate the passage of stones through the urinary tract, reduce the intensity of pain in ureteral and renal colic, enhance renal blood flow and improve the activity of the renal system, increase urine output.

The drug demonstrates anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial action against a number of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms, increases the concentration of glucuronic acid and protective colloids in the urine.


The terpenes included in the preparation are fat-soluble and quickly absorbed. Terpenes such as borneol, after biotransformation in the body, are converted into glucuronides and excreted in the urine.
