Kinetics of bromhexine-mediated down-regulation of focal adhesive molecules of uterus and trophectoderm affecting conception in the rat.

PURPOSE: Quantitative evaluation of properties of bromhexine (B) for expression of uterine proteins in ovariectomized (OVX) and pregnant rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Expression of proteins through SDS-PAGE, along with incorporation of glycosidic moieties, was conducted in pregnant and OVX rats under B influence. These findings were corroborated with other tests such as implantation sites, fetal and litter sizes in pregnant rats. RESULTS: In OVX animals, even under the influence of estradiol dipropionate and progesterone, the B recreated a condition akin to OVX animals. It also induced 50-80% inhibition in the incorporation of glycosidic moieties to polypeptide chain. Distinct reduction in implantation sites, fetal sizes and interference in the conception (16/46) in pregnant rats substantiated the results of the action of B as an antiimplantation agent. CONCLUSION: Bromhexine has shown interference in blastocyst attachment, conception, reduction in number of implantation sites and dwarfing of fetuses; hence, it is a potential candidate for antiimplantation.[1]
