Description

Mycoderil Pharmacodynamics
Mycoderil® is an antifungal drug for external use, the active ingredient of which is naphthifine. Naphtifine is an antifungal agent belonging to the class of alilamines. The mechanism of action is associated with 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. Naftifine, affecting squalene epoxidase, does not affect the cytochrome P-450 system.
Naphtifine is active against dermatophytes such as Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, Microsporum, yeast and yeast-like fungi (Candida spp., Pityrosporum), mold fungi (Aspergillus) and other fungi (e.g. Sporothrix schenckii). Against dermatophytes and aspergillus naphthifin acts fungicidal. Against yeast fungi the drug has fungicidal or fungistatic activity depending on the strain of the microorganism. Naftifin has antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms causing secondary bacterial infections.
Naphtifine has anti-inflammatory activity, which contributes to the rapid disappearance of inflammatory symptoms, especially itching.
