Description of dosage form
Soft gelatin capsules are white, oval in shape, containing a colorless or yellowish liquid.
Pharmacological action - photosensitizing.
When administered under the influence of long-wave (320-400 nm) UV rays, as a result of the interaction of methoxalene with epidermal DNA, the proliferation rate of the epidermal cells decreases, as well as the intensification of melanogenesis processes.
Good and quickly absorbed from the digestive tract. Cmax is reached within 1-3 hours. Reversibly binds to plasma proteins. T1 / 2 - about 2 hours. It accumulates in the epidermal cells and is rapidly metabolized. It is excreted mainly in the form of metabolites by the kidneys during the day.

red flat lichen;
lymphoma (mushroom mycosis);
