Description

Comfoderm M2 Pharmacodynamics
Comfoderm® M2 is a combination drug, the effect of which is due to its constituent components.
Methylprednisolone aceponate is a nonhalogenated synthetic steroid. When applied topically, methylprednisolone aceponate suppresses inflammatory and allergic skin reactions, as well as reactions associated with increased proliferation, which leads to reduction of objective symptoms of inflammation (erythema, edema, mucous) and subjective sensations (itching, irritation, pain, etc.).
When methylprednisolone aceponate is applied topically at the recommended dose, systemic effects are minimal in both humans and animals. After repeated application of methylprednisolone aceponate on large surfaces (40-60% of the skin surface), as well as when used under the occlusive dressing, no adrenal dysfunction is observed: plasma cortisol level and its circadian rhythm remain within normal limits, there is no reduction of cortisol concentration in daily urine.
Methylprednisolone aceponate (especially its main metabolite, 6 alpha-methylprednisolone-17-propionate) binds to intracellular glucocorticoid receptors.
The steroid-receptor complex binds to specific DNA sites of immune response cells, thus causing a series of biological effects.
In particular, binding of the steroid-receptor complex to the DNA of the immune response cells leads to induction of macrocortin synthesis.
Macrocortin inhibits the release of arachidonic acid and thus the formation of inflammatory mediators like prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
Inhibition by glucocorticosteroids of the synthesis of vasodilatory prostaglandins and potentiation of the vasoconstrictor effect of adrenaline lead to a vasoconstrictor effect.
Urea has keratolytic and moisturizing effects. Urea promotes water binding and consequently softening of the stratum corneum of the skin. In addition to its keratolytic effect, urea has proteolytic activity.
