KETOSH B Cream

Composition:

Each 10g of KETOSH B cream contains ketoconazole 2% (w/w) &beclomethasone 0.025%(w/w)

Description:

KETOSH B cream is the unique formulation of an anti-inflammatory agent, beclomethasone and an antifungal agent, ketoconazole. This medication effectively treats several skin infections that are caused by fungi.

Beclomethasone is a potent topical corticosteroid that is of synthetic origin, along with strong vasoconstrictive properties. It is an agonist of glucocorticoid receptor and inhibits the leukocyte infiltration at the site of inflammation, suppresses the activity of the inflammatory mediators and controls the synthesis of inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes. This drug effectively suppresses the inflammation symptoms such as redness, pain and swelling.

Ketoconazole is an antifungal agent that belongs to the class of imidazoles and it works by interfering with the cell wall synthesis in fungal cells. Ketoconazole inhibits the activity of 14-a demethylase, a cytochrome P-450 enzyme, which synthesizes ergosterol from lanosterol. Impaired ergosterol synthesis leads to increased cellular permeability and leakage of the cell contents. This will eventually lead to the death of the fungal cells.
