Special warnings and precautions for use:
This drug therapy is not a substitute for the avoidance of the noxious agent causing liver damage (e.g. alcohol). In chronic hepatitis the adjuvant therapy with soya-bean phospholipids is justified only when improved subjective well-being becomes manifest during therapy.
Consult your doctor when complaints aggravate or when other unclear complaints occur.
As information about the administration in children is insufficient, Phospholipids 300mg hard gel capsule should not be given to children under 12 years of age.
Due to the content in soya-bean oil the medicinal product may provoke severe allergic reactions.
Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction:

very frequent (≥1/10)
frequent (≥1/100 to ≥1/10)
occasional (≥1/1,000 to ≥1/1,00)
rare (≥1/10,000 to ≥1/1,000)

Among the pharmacodynamic properties reported were hepatoprotective effects found in numerous experimental models in acute liver damage (induced by ethanol, alcyl alcohol, carbon tetrachloride, paracetamol and galactosamine). Furthermore, it was also seen to inhibit steatosis and fibrosis in chronic liver damage models (induced by ethanol, thioacetamide, and organic solvents). Its suggested principal actions have been through accelerated membrane regeneration and stabilization, inhibited lipid peroxidation and inhibited collagen synthesis.
Animal experiments into the pharmacokinetics showed that more than 90% of the orally applied soya-bean phospholipids are absorbed in the small intestines. Most of it is split by phospholipase A to 1-acyl-lysophosphatidylcholine, 50% of which reacylated immediately into polyunsaturated phosphotidylcholine still during the process of absorption in the intestinal mucosa. This polyunsaturated phosphatidylcholine reaches the blood via the lymph pathway and from there – mainly bound to HDL – it passes in particular to the liver.
Tests into human pharmacokinetics were performed with radioactively labeled dilinoleoyl-phosphatidlcholine (3H and 14C). The choline moiety was 3H-labeled and the linoleic acid had the 14C-label. The maximum 14C concentration was achieved after 4 to 12 hours and amounted to 27.9% of the dose. The half-life for this component was 32 hours.
In the feces were found 2% of the 3H and 4.5% of the 14C label,in the urine 6% of the 3H and only minor amounts of the 14C label.
These results show that both isotopes are absorbed to over 90% in the intestines.
