How do antibacterial agents in clothing work?

I just bought some HEATTECH long undies from Uniqlo. They claim to have a "special antibacterial agent" in them to minimize odors. Lots of other products these days make similar claims. How does this work? Is it basically a pesticide embedded in the fabric? If so, why doesn't it wash out? What exactly would it be? Are there health concerns?
