pharmachologic effect

Zincap is a dermatoprotective agent.

Pyrithione zinc has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal activity. Antibacterial activity of zinc pyrithione is manifested against a number of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus spp.). Pyrithione zinc reduces the intracellular level of ATP, contributes to the depolarization of cell membranes, causing the death of fungi and bacteria. Antifungal activity is particularly pronounced with the action on Pityrosporum ovale and Pityrosporum orbiculare, causing inflammation and excessive flaking with dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis and other skin diseases. The mechanism of anti-inflammatory action has not been studied.
