Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19701264A1] The invention relates to a medicament containing mixtures of betasitosterol and phytosterol and/or betasitosterol and its physiological metabolites. Processes were discovered for dissolving betasitosterol, which in itself is difficult to dissolve, in various oils and paraffins and in glycerin, which processes offer new indications for the use of these substances. In addition, the esterification of the betasitosterol with carboxylic acids opens up therapeutic possibilities in asthma, inflammatory intestinal diseases, arterial hypertension, autoimmune diseases of the skin and pain relief which far exceed the currently known range of uses of betasitosterol and phytosterol/betasitosterol mixtures.
