Terbinafine is the key ingredient of BINADIS cream.
Terbinafine is an antifungal agent that belongs to the class of allylamines and it is of synthetic origin. Terbinafine inhibits the fungal growth by preventing ergosterol synthesis in the fungal cells. Ergosterol is an important component of the cell wall in fungi and the inhibition of its synthesis leads to cellular disintegration and prevents future fungal infections.
The enzyme squalene epoxidase catalyzes the conversion of squalene to lanosterol, which is then converted to ergosterol. Terbinafine inhibits the activity of squalene epoxidase, which leads to reduced concentration of ergosterol and increased concentration of squalene. This eventually causes the death of the fungal cells and cures the infection caused by fungi.
