pharmachologic effect

Struggles with fungi of the genus Trichophyton, Microsporum, Epydermophyton Achorionum. It provokes a disturbance in the structure of the mitotic spindle (a combination of chromosomes, poles and fibers) and the synthesis of the cell wall of chitinous fungi, inhibits the multiplication of fungal cells in metaphase (the second phase of indirect division of the cell) and protein synthesis due to disruption of the bond with the matrix ribonucleic acid. It has the property of accumulating in the skin cells, hair and nails, thus helping the keratin to be more resistant to fungal infestation (infection). As soon as the infected keratin is separated, it changes its healthier tissue.


195 Absorption is quite high: the microcrystalline form is 25-70%, the ultra-microcrystalline form is almost 100%. The absorption process is enhanced by the intake of fatty foods.

A small amount is dispersed in the fluids and tissues of the body. Penetrates through the placenta.
