TERBINAFIN, cream 1%
International non-proprietary name
Antifungal drugs for the treatment of skin diseases. Antifungal drugs for external use.
The active substance is Terbinafine (in terms of 100% substance) 1 g,
Terbinafine belongs to the synthetic antifungal agents of the class of allylamines. It has a wide spectrum of action. Inhibiting squalene epoxidase in the cell membrane of the fungus, specifically suppresses the early stage of sterol synthesis in the cell of the fungus, which leads to a deficiency of ergosterol, intracellular accumulation of squalene and death of the cell of the fungus.
It has an effect on dermatophytes, yeast-like and mold fungi. At low concentrations has a fungicidal activity against dermatophytes (Trychophyton rubrum, Trychophyton mentagrophytes, Trychophyton verrucosum, Trychophyton violaceum, Trychophyton tonsurans, Microsporum canis, Epidermophyton floccosum), fungi (including Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Scopulariopsis brevicaulis). When applied topically, terbinafine is also active against Pityrosporum orbiculare. The effect on yeast fungi of the genus Candida can be fungicidal or fungistatic depending on the type of fungus.
Terbinafine, unlike azole derivatives, slightly limits the function of cytochrome P450 and the metabolism of steroid hormones or other drugs.
When applied externally, the drug quickly penetrates the dermal layer of the skin and accumulates in the stratum corneum, nails and hair. With a single application of 100 μl of cream on the surface of the skin with an area of 30 cm2, 3.5-5% of the drug dose is detected in the urine, therefore the systemic effect is minimal. When applied topically, the potential for the drug to enter breast milk is not excluded.
