Active Ingredient History

Iothalamic Acid is an iodine-containing organic anion used as a radiocontrast agent. It is available as sodium iothalamate (Iothalamate sodium) and meglumine iothalamate (Iothalmate meglumine). It can be administered intravenously or intravesically (into the urinary bladder). Iothalamate is indicated to visualize specific regions of the vascular system and blood flow in these areas to help in the diagnosis and evaluation of neoplasms (known or suspected) or vascular diseases (congenital or acquired) that may cause changes in normal vascular anatomy or physiology. Iothalamate meglumine injection is indicated for use in cerebral angiography, peripheral arteriography or venography, arterial digital subtraction angiography1 , and intravenous digital subtraction angiography. Iothalamate meglumine and iothalamate sodium injection is indicated for use in selective coronary arteriography, selective renal arteriography, and in intravenous digital subtraction angiography. othalamate meglumine and iothalamate sodium injection and iothalamate sodium injection are indicated to visualize the aorta and its major branches. However, the injection of iothalamate meglumine and iothalamate sodium is preferred because it generally causes less severe hemodynamic, neurotoxic, and cardiotoxic effects than the individual injection of iothalamate sodium. Radioactive formulation is also available as sodium iothalamate I-125 Injection (GLOFIL-125). It is indicated for evaluation of glomerular filtration in the diagnosis or monitoring of patients with renal disease.   NCATS
