Ursodeoxycholic acid or shortly UDCA is an initial component of the naturally occurring bile acid and it is produced by the small amount in the body. It is about 5% of total bile acid pool. It is used to treat the increased production of the cholesterol in the body and to control the high level of the cholesterol. Since it has immunomodulatory, cholelitolitic, choleretic and hepatoprotective properties, it can stimulate the liver to increase an output of bile, dissolve gallstones with high cholesterol content, stabilize membranes of hepatocytes and cholangiocytes. As a result of the action of UDCA on the gastrointestinal circulation of bile acids, it decreases the content of potentially toxic acids such as endogenous, hydrophobic bile acids. By having biochemical effects as reducing the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine it lowers the cholesterol level in the blood. Due to this, it is used to treat or prevent atherosclerosis. It protects body cells from harmful effects or agents. As it has also antiapoptotic ability it regulates cell production and death caused by toxic bile acids. It is used to treat patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, cystic fibrosis-associated liver disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, graft-versus-host disease of the liver, total parenteral nutrition-induced cholestasis, and in some pediatric cholestatic liver diseases.
