What is Rhinosectan® and what is it used for?
Rhinosectan® is a medical device that forms a protective barrier over the nasal epithelial mucosa, thus the contact of allergens and pathogens with the mucosa is reduced or impeded preventing or minimizing the development of nasal symptoms. Its protective action is principally due to the presence of xyloglucan a natural polymer with a proven capability to protect the epithelia and reduce the hypersecretion of liquids such as mucus. Rhinosectan® is specially formulated to control and treat the symptoms of rhinitis and rhinosinusitis from different aetiologies, especially those of allergic origin. Rhinosectan® relieves the symptoms of allergies caused by pollen, dust mites or pets acting as a barrier to the penetration of airbone allergens.
Rhinosectan® can also be used as a preventive measure before coming into contact with an environment where airborne allergens are likely to be present (flowering periods, gardening activities, home dusting, et al.) as its mode of action provides protection from the very beginning, before symptoms appear.
Rhinosectan® complies the Essential Requirements of Directive 93/42/EEC and subsequent amendments.
