Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mode of Action: Inhibits squalene epoxidase, preventing biosynthesis of ergosterol.
Antimicrobial spectrum: Antifungal and antimycotic. Fungicidal against dermatopytes and some yeasts; fungistatic against Candida albicans.

Terbinafine inhibits squalene monooxygenase thereby blocking the biosynthesis of ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell membranes. The inhibition of squalene monooxygenase also results in the accumulation of squalene. Terbinafine hydrochloride is highly lipophilic and tends to accumulate in skin, nails, and fatty tissues. It is antifungal and antimycotic. It is fungicidal against dermatopytes and some yeasts and is fungistatic against Candida albicans.

General description

Allylamine derivative.

Packaging

100, 250 mg in poly bottle

Application

Terbinafine hydrochloride is a synthetic allylamine antifungal. It is used to treat dermatophyte infections of the toenail/fingernail, ringworm and jock itch. It is used in adsorption, partition and stability studies.
