Biological Activity

Description Naftifine is an allylamine antifungal drug for the topical treatment of tinea pedis, tinea cruris, and tinea corporis, probably involves selectively blocking sterol biosynthesis via inhibition of the squalene 2,3-epoxidase enzyme.
In vitro

Naftifine exhibits an interesting in vitro spectrum of activity against dermatophytes (38 strains; minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) range 0.1 to 0.2 mg/mL), aspergilli (6 strains; MIC range, 0.8 to 12.5 mg/mL), Sporothrix schenckii (2 strains; MICs, 0.8 and 1.5 mg/mL), and yeasts of the genus Candida (77 strains; MIC range, 1.5 to greater than 100 mg/mL). [1] The MIC of naftifine for C. albicans Δ63 is 100 mg/L in Sabouraud medium (initial pH 6.5). Naftifine (50 mg/L) gives greater than 99% inhibition of sterol biosynthesis both in whole cells and in cell extracts of C. albicans. The primary action of naftifine appears to be the blocking of fungal squalene epoxidation. [2]

In vivo Naftifine HCl 2% cream results in clinical cure rate and clinical success rate of 33% and 84% after treatment for 4 weeks, and week 2 efficacy response rates in Naftifine HCl 2% subjects are all lower than at week 4 but are significantly higher than week 2 vehicle-treated counterparts. [3] Naftifine causes interruption of fungal ergosterol synthesis and accumulation of squalene in fungal organisms. Naftifine also has demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties such as a reduction in superoxide production and a reduction in polymorphonuclear leukocyte chemotaxis/endothelial adhesion. Naftifine has shown good efficacy and safety for a variety of conditions and is a useful treatment that provides both antifungal action and relief of inflammatory signs and symptoms. Few adverse events have been noted with naftifine use, the most frequent being mild and transient burning, stinging, or itching in the application area. [4]

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
