Release form and composition
Dosage form Comfoderma M2 - cream for external use 0.1% + 2%: white or almost white, with a faint odor (30 g in a tube, 1 tube in a cardboard box).
Composition of 100 g cream:
- active substances: methylprednisolone aceponate (in terms of 100% substance) - 0.1 g, urea (in terms of 100% substance) - 2 g;
- auxiliary components: vaseline oil, propylene glycol, polysorbate-80, carbomer interpolymer (type A), trometamol, methyl parahydroxybenzoate, purified water.
Comfoderm M2 is a combined preparation, the action of which is due to the properties of its constituent components.
Methylprednisolone aceponate is a non-halogenated synthetic steroid that, when applied externally, has anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects, and also suppresses reactions associated with increased proliferation, reducing the symptoms of inflammation.
Systemic exposure when applied externally is minimal. Dysfunction of the adrenal glands is not observed with repeated use of the drug on extensive surfaces and under occlusive dressings.
Urea has a moisturizing and keratolytic effect. Also has proteolytic activity.
Methylprednisolone aceponate, when applied topically, is hydrolyzed in the epidermis and dermis. The main metabolite of the substance, 6α-methylprednisolone-17-propionate, has an affinity for the glucocorticosteroid receptors of the skin.
Absorption of the drug when applied topically in healthy people is 0.5-1.5%, in patients with psoriasis and atopic dermatitis - no more than 2.5%.
When it enters the systemic circulation, the active metabolite of methylprednisolone aceponate is inactivated by conjugating with glucuronic acid.
The half-life is 16 hours. The drug is excreted mainly by the kidneys, it does not accumulate in the body.
Urea absorption when applied topically is small and does not cause systemic reactions.
