Benzobromarone has a strong uricosuric effect. The effect is mainly due to inhibition of the absorption of uric acid in the proximal renal tubules and increased excretion of uric acid by the kidneys. In addition, the drug inhibits enzymes involved in the synthesis of purines.
Under the influence of benzobromarone, the excretion of uric acid through the intestine increases.
It is used for hyperuricemia (arthritis with hyperuricemia, hematological diseases, psoriasis, etc.) and gout.
