Decasan® is an antiseptic, decamethoxine solution for external and intracavitary (abdominal and pleural cavities) administration.
1 ml of the solution contains 0.2 mg decamethoxine.
The mechanism of action of Decasan® is defined by its active substance, and consists of:
- increasing permeability of microbial cells and their destruction;
- inactivation of exotoxin;
- inhibition of microbial protein synthesis and division of microbial cells.
One of the main advantages of Decasan® is that its action on microbial cells only, and absence of influence on human cells.
Decamethoxine is a surface active agent (surfactant); its action is induced by violation of cell wall integrity. Cell walls of microorganisms consist of short lipid chains, which are rapidly destroyed under the influence of Decasan®. The walls of human cells consist of long lipid chains, which are not affected by decamethoxine molecule.
The product also has:
- desensitizing, and
- antispasmodic action.
