Candide-B6 has antifungal, antibacterial, trichomonacid, antiprotozoal local action. A wide range of drug activity is due to the effectiveness of the active substance.
Clotrimazole is an imidazole derivative. The mechanism of its action is associated with a violation of the synthesis of a component of the cell membrane of fungi - ergosterol. As a result of changes in the structure and properties of the membrane, cell lysis occurs.
The following pathogens are susceptible to clotrimazole: Candida speciales (spp.), Cryptococcus neoformans (Torula histolytica), Blastomyces dermatitidis, Coccidioides immitis, Histoplasma capsulatum, Dermatophytes., Paracoccidioides brasiliensis.
In addition, clotrimazole is active against gram-positive (Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Corynebacterium minutissimum) and gram-negative (Bacteroides, Gardnerella vaginalis) bacteria. In high concentration, it acts on Trichomonas vaginalis.
With intravaginal administration, the absorption of clotrimazole is 3–10%. Its high concentration is retained in vaginal secretions for 48–72 hours at a low blood level. As a result of rapid metabolism in the liver, inactive metabolites are formed.
