Active Ingredient History
Oxiconazole nitrate is 2',4'-dichloro-2-imidazol-1-ylacetophenone (Z)-[0-(2,4-dichlorobenzyl)oxime], mononitrate is an imidazole derivative characterized by a broad fungistatic spectrum. In vitro oxiconazole is highly effective against many dermatophytes, including Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton tonsurans, and Epidermophyton floccosum. In addition, fungicidal activity of various degree was found in selected species (Aspergillus fumigatus, Cryptococcus neoformans, Candida albicans and Trichophyton mentagrophytes). Synthesis of DNA was inhibited by subinhibitory concentrations of oxiconazole in parallel to cell multiplication, whereas synthesis of RNA, protein and carbohydrate was decreased to a lesser extent. OXISTAT® (Oxiconazole nitrate) Cream and Lotion are indicated for the topical treatment of the following dermal infections: tinea pedis, tinea cruris, and tinea corporis due to Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, or Epidermophyton floccosum. OXISTAT® Cream is indicated for the topical treatment of tinea (pityriasis) versicolor due to Malassezia furfur. Oxiconazole cream exerts no detectable systemic effect since only a negligible amount is absorbed from the skin. Once-daily use of oxiconazole cream could be valuable in patients with a history of noncompliance with multiple-daily regimens of other topical antifungal agents. NCATS
