Pharmacological effect

Antifungal drug for local use, with a wide range of antifungal activity. In low concentrations, terbinafine has a fungicidal effect against dermatophytes (Trychophyton rubrum, T.mentagrophytes, T.verrucosum, T.violaceum, T.tonsurans, Microsporum canis, Epidermophyton floccosum), mold (mainly C.albicans) and certain dimorphic fungi. Pityrosporum orbiculare). Activity against yeast fungi, depending on their species, can be fungicidal or fungistatic. Terbinafine in a specific way changes the early stage of sterol biosynthesis occurring in fungi. This leads to a deficiency of ergosterol and to the intracellular accumulation of squalene, which causes the 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. Terbinafine does not affect the cytochrome P450 system in humans and, accordingly, the metabolism of hormones or other drugs.
