  • Properties

    Pharmacodynamics

    Lugol-Sanita - is an antiseptic drug for the treatment of throat diseases and oral cavity.

    The main active substance is molecular iodine, which has an antiseptic and local irritant effect. Has bactericidal effect on gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms, incl. Streptococci, staphylococcus, collibacillus ,  as well as pathogenic fungi and yeast. Pseudomonas aeruginosa resistant to drug effect.

    The mechanism of antimicrobial action of active iodine is the interaction of iodine with structural and functional proteins of microorganisms.  The iodines formed thereby lead to a change in the conformation of the protein molecules with the loss of their original physical, chemical and biological properties. Due to this, both destruction of membrane structures and the blockage of biocatalytic processes in microbial cells are realized, which leads to their death.
