Topics dealing with respiratory diseases and N-Acetylcystein
One of the main applications of N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is the treatment of some pulmonary diseases (bronchitis). NAC breaks up the mucus and facilitates the expectoration of sputum. NAC has been used since 1960s and has only very small side effects (in some cases it can aggravate asthma).
The literature for the use of NAC in the treatment of respiratory diseases is complex (around 3000-4000 papers) and with little controversy.
Please read the excellent reviews in the literature section of this page.
