Clinical pharmacology.

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES:

Fluconazole is an antifungal agent of a new class of triazole antifungal compounds; it is a powerful selective inhibitor of sterol synthesis in fungi. It was shown its activity in such fungi infections as Candida spp. (including systemic candidosis in animals with suppressed immunity), Cryptococcus neoformans (including intracranial infections), Miсrosporum spp. and Trichophyton spp.
Topically Fluconazole is used as an agent with a wide antifungal spectrum of activity.
It was shown its activity against dermatophytes and yeasts. Fluconazole is a highly specific to cytochrome P450 dependent fungal enzymes. It inhibits lanosterol C-14-demethylase enzyme, which converts lanosterol to sterol present in fungi membrane, i.e., ergosterol.
Pharmacokinetic studies of Fusys® gel showed that plasma Fluconazole levels are so low that systemic effect of the preparation is excluded.
In addition, the combination of gel and oil-water emulsion gives an opportunity to develop sufficient tolerance.
Pharmacokinetic studies of Fusys® gel in children were not carried out, but studies in adults showed that the preparation is systemically absorbed in parvo.
Studies carried out for the evaluation of tolerability and skin phototoxicity showed that in human Fusys® gel wais well tolerated by skin and wais not a phototoxic one.
