Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Thimerosal is effective at low doses as an anti-infective, antimicrobial and antifungal agent. It has a wide spectrum of activity. Thimerosal serves as a bacteriostatic agent and preservative in pharmaceutical formulations such as ophthalmic liquid and topical antifungal preparations. Thimerosal hydrolyzes in solution to produce ethyl-mercury hydroxide. Ethyl-mercury hydroxide is extremely toxic to bacteria even at very low concentrations, but is much less toxic to higher animals.
