Fungicides.Pharmacological action:Mechanism of action and pharmacodynamic properties terbinafine is an allylamine which has a broad spectrum of antifungal activity. At low concentrations, terbinafine is fungicidal against dermatophytes, moulds and certain dimorphic fungi. The activity against yeasts is fungicidal or fungistatic, depending on the species.Terbinafine interferes specifically with fungal sterol biosynthesis at an early step. This leads to a deficiency in ergosterol and to an intracellular accumulation of squalene, resulting in cell death. Terbinafine acts by inhibition of squalene epoxidase in the fungal cell membrane. The enzyme squalene epoxidase is not linked to the cytochrome P-450 system.Pharmacokinetic properties:Less than 5% of the dose is absorbed after topical application to humans.Indications:Adults and children over the age of 12 years:Fungal infections of the skin caused by dermatophytes such as trichophyton (eg.
