Oral soft capsule for the treatment of chronic manifestations of atopic dermatitis in dogs.

ATOPICA contains Cyclosporine A (ATCvet code QL04A A01) a selective immunosuppressor. It is a cyclic polypeptide consisting of 11 amino acids with a molecular weight of 1203 Daltons which acts specifically and reversibly on T-lymphocytes. Cyclosporine has anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic activities in atopic dermatitis. Cyclosporine acts specifically and reversibly on T-lymphocytes and inhibits the antigen-triggered release of lymphokines by activated T-cells. It also inhibits eosinophil recruitment and activation, keratinocyte cytokine production, Langerhans' cell functions, degranulation of mastocytes and therefore release of histamine and pro inflammatory cytokines. Cyclosporine does not depress hemopoiesis and has no effect on the function of phagocytic cells.

Available in packs of 15 tablets with 10 mg, 25 mg or 50 mg.

Cyclosporine A per capsule.
