About the drug:

Penicillamin is specifically used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, Wilson’s disease and cystinuria. It basically acts as a disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It works by decreasing the pain and swelling in the joints. Thus, it works as an immunosuppressive agent for curing rheumatoid arthritis.

Uses of the drug:

Cilamin – 250 mg is specifically used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, Wilson’s disease, and cystinuria. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease that damages the joints of the body.

Working of the drug:

It acts as a disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It works by dropping the numbers of T-lymphocytes, inhibiting macrophage function, decreasing IL-1, decreasing rheumatoid factor, and preventing collagen from cross-linking. It acts as a chelating agent for curing Wilson's disease thus removing heavy metals such as copper from the body thus preventing liver from damage. It also prevents cystinuria autosomal disease by binding with cysteine to yield a mixed disulfide which is more soluble than cystine thus preventing kidney stones in our body.


It is a chelating agent used in the treatment of Wilson's disease. It is also used to reduce cystine excretion in cystinuria and to treat patients with severe, active rheumatoid arthritis unresponsive to conventional therapy (see INDICATIONS). It is 3-mercapto-D-valine.
