What is Miramistin?
«Miramistin» is Russian new generation antiseptic drug. It has a wide scope of action and can be most efficient in prevention and treatment of infections - bacterial, mycotic and viral infections.
This unique antiseptic drug is the best in individual preventative measures against all kinds of infectious diseases.
The drug is particularly efficient in combating a whole range of microbes causing acute tonsillitis, wound festering, mycotic diseases, herpes, chlamydosis, trichomoniasis, etc.
Miramistin exerts a powerful preventative effect regardless of a particular place where agents of disease are located.
History of Creation
Miramistin as a drug was invented in the 70-s under the auspices of a Soviet all-union program «Space Biotechnologies». The program was aimed at creation of an antiseptic drug suitable for both astronauts' skin treatment and wiping of the equipment in order to prevent bacteria, pathogenic and pathogenous funguses and viruses from spreading indoors. Clinical trials were performed by the specialists from Moscow, Kiev and Simferopol. After the collapse of the Soviet Union all these unique findings remained disused, but the scientists kept them "alive". After successful completion of the trials 1991 Miramistin was licensed as an individual prevention drug for venereal diseases. Further exploration of its properties provided the necessary basis for drug's extensive use: surgery, traumatic surgery, combustion practices, obstetrics and gynecology, urology, otolaryngology, stomatology. Drug's usage in any of these spheres has been properly licensed.
Miramistin's manufacturing and introduction into Russian clinical practice was made with help of private investments.
Solution for local administration.
Active substance - miramistin®;
Ancillary substance - purified water.
Description: colourless, transparent liquid, making foam when shaken.
Miramistin® exerts a profound antibacterial effect on gram-positive and gram-negative, aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in the form of monocultures and microbe associations, including hospital strains with multiresistance to antibiotics. The drug is the most efficient to combat gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp.. Streptococcus pneumoniae и др.), to suppress microbes causing sexually transmitted infections (Chlamydia spp., Treponema spp, Trichomonas vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae), as well as herpes, HIV, etc. The drug exerts anti-mycotic effect on Aspergillus and Penicillium, saccharomyces (Rhodotorula rubra, Torulopsis gabrata, etc.) and saccharomyce-like ones (Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei, etc.), dermatophytes (Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton verrucosum, Trichophyton schoenleini, Trichophyton violacent, Epidermophyton Kaufman-Wolf, Epidermophyton floccosum, Microsporum gypseum, Microsporum canis, etc.), and any other pathogenic fungi, for instance, Pityrosporum orbiculare (Malassezia furfur) in the form of monocultures and microbe association, including one of the fungous microflora characterized by its resistance to chemotherapy medications.

Effectiveness of the drug
Preventive effectiveness of Miramistin® , which has been confirmed by multiple clinical trials and research findings, is almost 100% on the condition that the drug is properly administered and applied.
The findings of various clinical trials showed that Miramistin can be successfully used in different branches of medical care. It is widely used in surgery and traumatic surgery due to its strong antiseptic action allowing treatment for wounds and suppurative septic processes. Miramistin is actively used in combustology to treat both minor and serious burns (i.e., it accelerates regeneration processes, improves engraftment of transplanted skin). It is also widely used in otolaryngology, stomatology, dermatology, venereology, urology, obstetrics and gynecology. Specialists emphasize excellent medicinal and preventive properties of Miramistin® and obvious absence of side effects. Due to its strong preventive properties the drug can be effectively used to combat any complications of various illnesses. According to the findings of clinical trials, the drug's usage results in significant reduction of post-surgical complications and fostering of full recovery.
