Pharmacological action

Terbinafin is a fungicidal, antifungal drug. Shows activity almost to all types of a fungus which can strike a human body. In small concentration shows fungicidal action of rather mold mushrooms, dermatophytes, to some species of dimorphous mushrooms. On mushrooms barmy it is possible both fungicidal, and a fungistasis.

Its therapeutic action is defined by the destroying influence on a membrane of cells of mushrooms, and also in view of specific inhibition of a skvalenepoksidaza (it is the enzyme important for normal function of a membrane of a cell of a mushroom).

Under the influence of Terbinafin products of ergosterol owing to which lack of a cell of a mushroom the amount of squalene increases stop. As a result there is an inactivation of all fermental systems, and the cell perishes.

Active component does not influence system of P450 cytochrome, therefore, does not affect process of a metabolism of hormones or other drugs.

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics

At oral administration of medicine there is a fast absorption of active agent from a digestive tract. Its partial metabolism occurs in a liver, as a result, its bioavailability decreases to 40%. Only slightly bioavailability of medicine is affected by meal therefore to adjust a dose there is no need.

In an organism of a terbinafin the hydrochloride biotransformirutsya in metabolites which do not show antifungal activity. The most part them is removed with urine. The elimination half-life is equal to 17 hours.

Terbinafin's cumulation at reception is not noted. Its efficiency is identical to all patients, regardless of age of the person. In the presence of pathological changes in a liver and kidneys medicine biotransformation can be slowed down.
