Silver preparation (silver proteinate contains 7.5-8.5% silver). It has astringent, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects. Dissociates to form silver ions, which bind to the DNA of bacteria and prevent their reproduction on the mucous membranes in local conditions.
The mechanism of action of silver proteinate is based on the fact that silver ions precipitate proteins and form a protective film on the damaged mucous membrane, which helps to reduce the sensitivity of nerve endings and narrow blood vessels (this leads to a decrease in edema), which in turn leads to inhibition of inflammatory reactions. Silver ions also inhibit the reproduction of various bacteria. Active against gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms: B. cereus, C. albicans, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, A. niger, S. Abony and others.
