Cytisine is a toxic pyridine-like alkaloid. Pharmacologically it exhibits similar effects to nicotine due to st ructural similarity of the two molecules.
[Molecular Formula] C11H14N2O
[Plant Origin] Leguminous plants of the genus Sophora alopecuroides seeds of Lanceleaf Huang Hua
The clinical use of cytisine 0.15% aqueous solution for intramuscular or intravenous injection, rescue breathing reflex caused by surgical trauma and suspended shock and neonatal asphyxia. Recent research indicates that the alkaloid also has anti arrhythmia, anti microbial infection, anti ulcer, pharmacological effects of increasing leukocytes and other aspects. Especially its anticancer activity. Can be used in the production of smoking cessation drugs, emergency medicine, cough medicine.
