PHARMACHOLOGIC EFFECT

Antifungal drug for external use, allylamine derivative with a wide range of antifungal activity.
Specifically, it changes the early stage of sterol biosynthesis occurring in fungi. This leads to a deficit of ergosterol and to intracellular accumulation of squalene, which causes death of the fungal cell. The action of terbinafine is carried out by inhibiting the enzyme squalene epoxidase located on the cell membrane of the fungus.
In small concentrations, terbinafine has a fungicidal effect against dermatophytes (Trichophyton rubrum, T.mentagrophytes, T.verrucosum, T. violaceum, T.tonsurans, Microsporum canis, Epidermophyton floccosum), moldy (mainly C. albicans) and certain dimorphic fungi ( Pityrosporum orbiculare).
Activity with respect to yeast fungi, depending on their type, may be fungicidal or fungistatic.
Terbinafine has no effect on the cytochrome P450 system in humans and, accordingly, on the metabolism of hormones or other medications.
