What is Pulmozyme?

Pulmozyme contains the prescription medicine dornase alfa. It is classed as a recombinant human dexoyribonuclease I (rhDNase), meaning that Pulmozyme is a man-made protein that breaks down DNA in excess lung secretions of people with cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that gets worse over time, causing a person to get lung infections frequently as well as reducing their ability to breathe properly. Pulmozyme helps to reduce the chances of getting respiratory tract infections and helps to improve the function of the lung by thinning the excess pulmonary mucus secretions.

Pulmozyme is recommended for daily use in combination with other standard treatments to help improve lung function as well as control cystic fibrosis. Pulmozyme is given by inhalation using a nebulizer. You should not dilute or mix the Pulmozyme solution with any other drugs in the nebulizer, this could cause changes to the effectiveness of the medications. You should use your respiratory medications as directed by your doctor.

Pulmozyme active ingredients

In patients with cystic fibrosis, thick mucus secretions cause infections to become more likely and lung function to decrease. The mucus contains a large concentration of DNA from degraded white blood cells that have gathered in response to infection.

Pulmozyme is recombinant human deoxyribonuclease I (rhDNase). It is an enzyme that cuts and breaks down certain DNA. Lab studies have shown that Pulmozyme reduces the thickness and elasticity of the sputum in the lungs by hydrolyzing (a chemical reaction with water) the DNA in it. This thinning effect on the sputum helps to improve lung function and also to reduce the chances of, and consequences of an infection.

Pulmozyme side effects

The most common side effects caused by Pulmozyme include:

  • Sore throat, laryngitis (inflammation of your voice box), changes in your voice
  • Nasal discharge or stuffy nose
  • Eye irritation or redness
  • Rash

In rare instances, Pulmozyme can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • An allergic reaction – difficulty breathing, tightness in your throat, swollen lips, tongue, or face
  • Fever
  • Pain in your chest

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Pulmozyme against your risk of side effects.
