Product name:Ciclopirox olamine (Ciclopirox ethanolamine;Ciclopiroxolamine;Loprox;Penlac)
Description: Ciclopirox olamine (Loprox, Penlac) is a synthetic, broad-spectrum hydroxypyridone antifungal agent. It is chemically unrelated to the imidazoles or any other antifungal agent currently available in the United States. It appears to act through intracellular depletion of substrates and/or ions principally by inhibition of transmembrane transport of these substances. It is active against dermatophytes, yeast, and Pityrosporum orbiculare. It also demonstrates activity against Trichomonas vaginalis, some mycoplasma, and some gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
