Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to Sertaconazole nitrate (CAS RN 99592-39-9). Sertaconazole is an azole antifungal agent indicated for the topical treatment of interdigital tinea pedis (athlete’s foot) in immunocompetent patients 12 years of age and older, caused by Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, and Epidermophyton floccosum. Sertaconazole is a racemic mixture of R and S enantiomers (3). Sertaconazole interacts with 14α-demethylase, a cytochrome P450 enzyme necessary to convert lanosterol to ergosterol. Ergosterol is an essential component of the fungal cell membrane, thus inhibition of its synthesis results in increased cellular permeability causing leakage of cellular contents. Sertaconazole may also inhibit endogenous respiration, interact with membrane phospholipids, inhibit the transformation of yeasts to mycelial forms, inhibit purine uptake, and impair triglyceride and/or phospholipid biosynthesis.
