Due to the presence of sulfhydryl groups, dimercaprol forms water-soluble non-toxic complexes with blockers of thiol groups of enzymes (thiol poisons in blood and tissues, decay products of ethanol), accelerating their elimination from the body. Strong binding to the blockers of sulfhydryl groups and the rapid elimination of the resulting complexes prevents the binding of the thiol groups of enzymes, helps to restore their activity and leads to a reduction and complete elimination of the symptoms of poisoning. Increases the elimination of certain cations (especially copper and zinc) from metal-containing cell enzymes. In patients with diabetic polyneuropathy, it helps to reduce pain, improve the function of the peripheral nervous system, and normalize capillary permeability.
