Tyloxapol

Tyloxapol

Tyloxapol is a nonionic liquid polymer of the alkyl aryl polyether alcohol type; used as a surfactant to aid liquefaction and removal of mucopurulent (containing mucus and pus) bronchopulmonary secretions, administered by inhalation through a nebulizer or with a stream of oxygen. Tyloxapol, when injected IP, also blocks plasma lipolytic activity, and thus the breakdown of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins.
