Chymoral is an enzyme composition composed of trypsin and chymotrypsin. Chymoral reduces swelling and inflammation. An inflamed tissue has hampered blood supply and lymph flow. Chymoral by its action, reduces inflammation. Disappearance of edema, exudate and hematoma, leads to normalizing locally impaired blood circulation and lymph flow. It also has mucolytic (breaks down bronchial secretion i.e. mucus) and expectorant action.
Chymoral is prescribed in trauma patients and those undergoing surgery. It also helps loosen phlegm in asthma, bronchitis, lung diseases, and sinus infections.
Chymoral prevents the occurrence of edema and accelerates resorption of edema and hematoma. It also accelerates treatment of inflammatory processes in upper respiratory tract infections
Chymoral is a brand from Torrent Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Torrent Pharma, the flagship Company of Torrent Group is one of the leading pharma companies of India. It is ranked amongst the leaders in therapeutic segment of Cardiovascular (CV) and Central Nervous System (CNS).

Inflammation is a vital part of the immune system’s response to injury and infection. It is the body’s way of signalling the immune system to heal and repair damaged tissue, as well as defend itself against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria.
Without inflammation as a physiological response, wounds would fester, and infections could become deadly.
However, if the inflammatory process goes on for too long or if the inflammatory response occurs in places where it is not needed, it can become problematic. Chronic inflammation has been linked to certain diseases such as heart disease or stroke, and may also lead to autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. But a healthy diet and lifestyle can help keep inflammation under control.
The tell-tale signs of acute inflammation include redness, swelling, heat and sometimes pain and loss of function, according to the National Library of Medicine.
In the case of acute inflammation, blood vessels dilate, blood flow increases and white blood cells swarm the injured area to promote healing, said Dr. Scott Walker, a family practice physician at Gunnison Valley Hospital in Utah. This response is what causes the injured area to turn red and become swollen.
During acute inflammation, chemicals known as cytokines are released by the damaged tissue. The cytokines act as “emergency signals” that bring in your body’s immune cells, hormones and nutrients to fix the problem, Walker said.
In addition, hormone-like substances known as prostaglandins create blood clots to heal damaged tissue, and they also trigger pain and fever as part of the healing process. As the body heals, the acute inflammation gradually subsides.
Unlike acute inflammation, chronic inflammation can have long-term and whole-body effects. Chronic inflammation is also called persistent, low-grade inflammation because it produces a steady, low-level of inflammation throughout the body, as judged by a small rise in immune system markers found in blood or tissue. This type of systemic inflammation can contribute to the development of disease, according to a summary in the Johns Hopkins Health Review.
Hypersensitivity. High vitreous pressure & a gaping incisional wound, congenital cataracts, patients < 20 yr due to probable lens-vitreous adhesion not responsive to α-chymotrypsin lysis.
Mechanism of Action
Chymotrypsin is a proteolytic enzyme obtained by the activation of chymotrypsinogen extracted from the pancreas of beef that has been used in ophthalmology for the dissection of the zonule of the lens, thus facilitating intracapsular cataract extraction & reducing trauma to the eye. It has also been given for its anti-inflammatory actions e.g., in soft-tissue inflammation & oedema.
