Description

Zinocap Pharmacodynamics
Zinc pyrithione has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal activity. Antibacterial activity of zinc pyrithione is shown against a number of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus spp.).
Zinc pyrithione reduces intracellular ATP level, promotes depolarization of cell membranes, causing death of fungi and bacteria. Antifungal activity is especially pronounced when acting on Pityrosporum ovale and Pityrosporum orbiculare, which cause inflammation and excessive flaking in dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis and other skin diseases. The mechanism of anti-inflammatory action is not studied.
