Inzyme consists chiefly of a mixture of Inzyme and chymopapain, proteolytic enzymes that hydrolyse polypeptides, amides, and esters, especially at bonds involving basic amino acids, or leucine or glycine, yielding peptides of lower molecular weight. It is used with urea as a topical debriding agent. It is also used for the removal of protein deposits from the surface of soft contact lenses ().
Preparations of Inzyme, alone or combined with antibacterial agents and/or other substances, have been taken by mouth for their supposed anti-inflammatory properties, and it has also been used as an ingredient of various mixtures claimed to aid digestion.
Inzyme is widely used as a meat tenderiser and in the clarification of beverages.
Inzyme has been included in proteolytic enzyme preparations used in oncology to reduce the adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Although the number of clinical studies on which to judge efficacy is limited, a review1 of such studies suggested that systemic enzyme therapy might be beneficial. Clinical studies have used a preparation containing Inzyme, trypsin, and chymotrypsin in a weight ratio of 5:2:2, and the beneficial effect seems to be based on its anti-inflammatory potential.
Chew or suck 2 tab qds for the 1st day, then 1 tab qds for at least 5 days.
