Enzox plus contains pancreatin, bile constituents and dimethicone. Enzox plus is a mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by the exocrine cells of the pancreas. Bile constituents in Enzox plus are generally biosynthesized by pancreas, and it is vital for hydrolysis of proteins, glucose and lipids. Pancreatin are pancreatic enzymes which hydrolyse fats to glycerol and fatty acids, break down protein into peptides, proteoses and derived substances, and convert starch into dextrins and sugars. Dimethicone reduces flatulence and relieves abdominal pain or discomfort, which is due to excessive gas in the digestive tract.
This mixture is used to treat conditions in which pancreatic secretions are deficient, such as surgical pancreatectomy, pancreatitis and cystic fibrosis. Enzox plus, a digestive enzyme, is prescribed as an alternative digestive enzyme in pancreatic insufficiency. Enzox plus is also used to treat steatorrhoea (loose, fatty stools).
