Mizol-Evalar Pharmacodynamics
Naftifin is an antifungal agent for external use, belonging to the class of allilamines. The mechanism of action is related to the inhibition of squalene-2,3-epoxidase, which leads to a decrease in the formation of ergosterol, which is part of the cell wall of the fungus. It is active against dermatophytes such as Trichophyton, Epidermophyton and Microsporum, molds (Aspergillus spp.), yeasts (Candida spp., Pityrosporum) and other fungi (such as Sporothrix schenckii). Against dermatophytes and aspergillus naphthifin acts fungicidal. Against yeast fungi the drug exhibits fungicidal or fungistatic activity depending on the strain of the microorganism. It has antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms that can cause secondary bacterial infections. It has anti-inflammatory activity, which contributes to the rapid disappearance of inflammatory symptoms, especially itching.

Indications
– Fungal infections of the skin and skin folds (tinea corporis, tinea inguinalis);
– Interfinger mycoses (tinea manum, tinea pedum);
– Fungal infections of the nails (onychomycoses);

– Dermatomycoses (with or without associated itching).
