INSTRUCTION FOR THE SPECIALIST.
Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2013.
Antifungal preparation of a wide spectrum of action for topical application in gynecology. Fenticonazole is a synthetic derivative of imidazole (its racemic mixture in the form of the nitric acid salt of fenticonazole). Has a local fungicidal and fungistatic effect. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action. The mechanism of action is to inhibit the synthesis of ergosterol, which regulates the permeability of the fungal cell membrane.
Is active against yeast fungi Candida spp. (including Candida albicans) and Gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp.), as well as against Trichomonas vaginalis.
Unlike other known azole compounds (in particular, econazole, miconazole and ketoconazole), fenticonazole inhibits the biosynthesis of proteases of Candida spp. at concentrations below the MIC - from 0.25 to 16 Ојg / ml. This action does not depend on the magnitude of antimycotic activity and is due to the inhibition of one of the stages of the formation of proteolytic enzymes by yeast-like fungi.
Fenticonazole practically does not undergo systemic absorption, with prolonged vaginal application its concentration in the blood is not determined. The degree of absorption in the mucous membrane is extremely low.
