Triclosan

Triclosan is a chlorinated bisphenol antiseptic, effective against Gram-positive and most Gram-negative bacteria but with variable or poor activity against Pseudomonas. It is also active against fungi. It is used in soaps, creams, and solutions in concentrations of up to 2% for disinfection of the hands and wounds, and for disinfection of the skin before surgery, injections, or vena puncture. It is also used in oral hygiene products and in preparations for acne. The mechanism of action of triclosan involves a significantly decreased activity of adenylyl cyclase enzyme which was followed by a decreased synthesis of cAMP. This decreased cAMP level resulted in the disruption of the entire steroidogenic cascade causing a depressed synthesis of testosterone.
