Question over 5 years ago

How does Tector work?

Dr. Suhas Bhargav MBBS , General Physician

Tector contains misoprostol which is a prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) analogue that possesses antisecretory property that inhibits gastric acid secretion. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins which leads to diminishing bicarbonate and mucus secretion which contributes to ulceration. Tector has mucosal protective properties that protect the stomach tissues from the damage caused by the stomach acid through decreased acid secretion and mucosal protective action. It induces labour by causing relaxation of cervix uteri (which is the lower part of the uterus). In the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage Tector works by causing contractions of smooth muscle fibres of the myometrium (middle layer of the uterine wall).
