Description

Termicon spray Pharmacodynamics
Antifungal drug for topical use, which has a broad spectrum of antifungal activity. In low concentrations, terbinafine has fungicidal effect against dermatophytes (Trychophyton rubrum, T. mentagrophytes, T. verrucosum, T. violaceum, T. tonsurans, Microsporum canis, Epidermophyton floccosum), molds, certain dimorphs (Pityrosporum orbiculare) and yeasts (mainly candida albicans).
Activity against yeast fungi, depending on their species, may be fungicidal or fungistatic.
Terbinafine specifically alters the early stage of sterol biosynthesis occurring in fungi. This leads to ergosterol deficiency and intracellular accumulation of squalene, which causes cell death of the fungus.
Terbinafine works by inhibiting the squaleneepoxidase enzyme located on the cell membrane of the fungus.
Terbinafine has no effect on the cytochrome P450 system in humans and, therefore, on the metabolism of hormones or other drugs.

Indications

– Mycoses of the feet (“fungus” of the foot),
– inguinal epidermophytosis,
– Fungal lesions of smooth skin of the body caused by dermatophytes (trichophytosis, microsporia, epidermophytosis, rubrophytosis).
