Antidermatophytic activity of allylamine derivatives.

The allylamine derivatives are a new class of synthetic antifungal agents. The antidermatophytic activity of the two main compounds, naftifine and terbinafine were compared in vitro with those of ketoconazole and itraconazole by agar dilution. Eighty eight clinical isolates of dematophytes comprising of Microsporum canis (50), M. audouinii (5), Trichophyton rubrum (6) T. mentagrophytes (5), T. violaceum (12), T. simii (5), T. verrucosum (1), T. soudanense (1), T. erinacie (1) and Epidermophyton floccosum (2) were tested. Terbinafine was found to be most active, inhibiting 68 of the 88 isolates at a concentration of 0.01 ug ml-1 and all at 0.1 ug ml. (Minimum inhibitory concentration - MIC range < or = 0.0001-0.1 ug ml-1). Naftifine inhibited 84 isolates at a concentration of 0.1 ug ml-1 and all at 0.5 ug ml-1 (MIC range 0.001-0.5 ug ml-1). Itraconazole required 0.1 ug ml-1 for inhibiting 50 isolates and 0.5 ug ml-1 for 85 isolates (MIC range 0.01-1 ug ml-1) whereas ketoconazole inhibited 71 isolates at 1 ug ml-1 and 87 at 2.5 ug ml-1 (MIC range 0.01-5 ug ml-1).[1]
