Amino Sugars

SUGARS containing an amino group. GLYCOSYLATION of other compounds with these amino sugars results in AMINOGLYCOSIDES.
DrugDrug NameDrug Indication
DB00141N-AcetylglucosamineFor the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis, by itself or in combination with chondroitin sulfate.
DB00271DiatrizoateUsed, alone or in combination, for a wide variety of diagnostic imaging methods, including angiography, urography, cholangiography, computed tomography, hysterosalpingography, and retrograde pyelography. It can be used for imaging the gastrointestinal tract in patients allergic to barium.
DB00558ZanamivirFor the prevention and treatment of influenza A and B.
DB00743Gadobenic acidGadobenate Dimeglumine is an MRI contrast agent used primarily for MR imaging of the liver. It can also be used for MRI of the heart, as well as and central nervous system in adults to visualize lesions with abnormal brain vascularity or abnormalities in the blood brain barrier, the brain, spine, or other associated tissues.
DB01296GlucosamineGlucosamine is usually used in the treatment of osteoarthritis, although its efficacy is still in question.

DB09132Gadoteric acidGadoteric acid is indicated for intravenous use with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in brain (intracranial), spine and associated tissues in adult and pediatric patients (2 years of age and older) to detect and visualize areas with disruption of the blood brain barrier (BBB) and/or abnormal vascularity.
DB09133Iothalamic acidConray is indicated for use in excretory urography, cerebral angiography, peripheral arteriography, venography, arthrography, direct cholangiography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, contrast enhancement of computed tomographic brain images, cranial computerized angiotomography, intravenous digital subtraction angiography and arterial digital subtraction angiography. Conray may also be used for enhancement of computed tomographic scans performed for detection and evaluation of lesions in the liver, pancreas, kidneys, abdominal aorta, mediastinum, abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space.

DB13444Ioxitalamic acidIoxitalamate in both of its available forms is indicated for exploration of the digestive tract by tomodensitometry or by regular gastroduodenal radiography. Its use is restrained to the cases in which the administration of barium sulfate is not recommended or contraindicated.[F55] The intravascular administration of ioxitalamate is contraindicated as it may present significant side effects.[F54]
DB13615MifamurtideIndicated in children, adolescents and young adults for the treatment of high-grade, resectable, non-metastatic osteosarcoma after macroscopically complete surgical resection, typically in combination with post-operative multi-agent chemotherapy [L1203].
