Synonym: Azapentacene, Azapentacene.
Crystal powder of red (purple) color. Easily soluble in water, forming a dark red solution.
Used for cataracts (senile, traumatic, congenital).
It is believed that the drug, like catalin (see), inhibits the formation of quinoid compounds and their effect on the proteins contained in the lens (according to the "quinoid" hypothesis of cataract pathogenesis). In addition, quinax prevents the oxidation of sulfhydryl groups of the lens proteins, promotes the resorption of opaque complexes; increases the activity of proteolytic enzymes in the aqueous humor of the anterior chamber of the eye.
