Description

Clotrimazole Pharmacodynamics
Clotrimazole – imidazole derivative, broad-spectrum antifungal agent. Antifungal effect is associated with disruption of ergosterol synthesis, which is part of the cell membrane of fungi, which changes the permeability of the cytoplasmic membrane and causes subsequent cell lysis. In low concentrations, it is fungistatic and fungicidal in high concentrations, and not only on proliferating cells. In fungicidal concentrations, it interacts with mitochondrial and peroxidase enzymes, resulting in an increase in hydrogen peroxide concentration to toxic levels, which also contributes to the destruction of fungal cells.
Clotrimazole has a broad antifungal spectrum of action in vitro and in vivo, including dermatophytes, yeast-like and mold fungi. Under certain analytical conditions, the values of the minimum suppressive concentration for these types of fungi range from less than 0.062 to 8.0 µg/ml substrate. It is effective against Pityriasis versicolor (Malassezia furfur). In addition to antifungal action, clotrimazole has antimicrobial action against Gram-positive (staphylococci, streptococci) and Gram-negative bacteria (Bacteroides, Gardnerella vaginalis). In vitro clotrimazole suppresses the reproduction of Corinebacteria and Gram-positive cocci, except enterococci, at concentrations of 0.5-10 mcg/ml substrate. Clotrimazole has no effect on lactobacilli. Primary resistant variants of sensitive fungi are very rare; development of secondary resistance in sensitive fungi is also noted in exceptional cases under therapeutic conditions.

The appropriateness of use in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy should be decided individually after consultation with your doctor.
Breast-feeding period
Available data from pharmacodynamic/toxicological studies in animals have demonstrated excretion of clotrimazole with milk. Breast-feeding should be discontinued during treatment with clotrimazole.
