One of the goals of antifungal therapy is to combine an anti‐inflammatory activity with antimycotic properties, and therefore it is interesting to evaluate the capacity of active antifungal drugs to interfere with different phases of the inflammatory reaction. In order to identify a possible scavenger property of free radical species of the antifungal agent terbinafine, we studied its activity on the reduction of nitrotetrazolium blue chloride (NTB), induced by superoxide anions with the… 
Inhibitory effect of terbinafine on reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation by Candida albicans

TLDR
Investigation of whether terbinafine affects the generation of ROS by C. albicans found a dose‐dependent significant inhibition of ROS generation was found and this mechanism may contribute to its antifungal action.
Therapeutic Review: Terbinafine
al, U ard V Terbinafine is a synthetic allylamine antifungal used commonly in both human and veterinary medicine. Terbinafine inhibits squalene epoxidase, a key enzyme in ergosterol biosynthesis,1-4
Efficacy of 1% terbinafine cream in comparison with 0.75% metronidazole gel for the treatment of papulopustular rosacea
TLDR
This preliminary study suggests that 1% terbinafine cream is an effective and safe treatment for papulopustular rosacea, and can be an option for patients who cannot tolerate other modalities.
Terbinafine Versus Itraconazole and Fluconazole in the Treatment of Vulvovaginal Candidiasis
TLDR
Terbinafine could be an alternative treatment option in Vulvovaginal candidiasis because there were no significant differences in the clinical and overall cure rates among 3 antifungal agents, however, terbINAfine could not be suggested as a first-line treatment in VulVovaginals candidiasis.
Comparison of the clinical efficacy of oral terbinafine and ketoconazole combined with cephalexin in the treatment of Malassezia dermatitis in dogs--a pilot study.
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that terbinafine should be further assessed for the treatment of canine Malassezia dermatitis, as it showed reduction in mean yeast counts, CIS and pruritus.
Efficacy of Oral Fluconazole in the Treatment of Seborrheic Dermatitis
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that fluconazole provides marginal and statistically insignificant benefit for the therapy of SD, however, larger studies using different dosages and/or durations of fluConazole therapy may provide a rationale for systemic use of flu Conazole in SD.
Oral Terbinafine in the Treatment of Multi-Site Seborrheic Dermatitis: A Multicenter, Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
It is shown that terbinafine is significantly more effective than placebo in reducing the severity of SD lesions in non-exposed sites and standard treatment regimens in different types of patients with SD are warranted.
Comparison of once-daily versus twice-weekly terbinafine administration for the treatment of canine Malassezia dermatitis - a pilot study.
TLDR
This pilot study indicates that twice-weekly terbinafine administration may be an effective alternative treatment for canine Malassezia dermatitis and merits further investigation.
Evaluation of the efficacy and tolerability of oral terbinafine (Daskil®) in patients with seborrhoeic dermatitis. A multicentre, randomized, investigator‐blinded, placebo‐controlled trial
TLDR
This data indicates that oral terbinafine, an antimycotic allylamine compound, could be useful in the treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis.
Oral terbinafine as an alternative treatment for Hailey–Hailey disease
TLDR
This data indicates that the presence of BRAF mutations in eruptive melanocytic nevi is associated with atypical cell cycle arrest in Addison’s disease, and the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of these mutations in the context of melanomagenesis is still unclear.

Effects of naftifine and terbinafine, two allylamine antifungal drugs, on selected functions of human polymorphonuclear leukocytes
TLDR
In contrast to imidazole-like drugs, the allylamine antimycotic compounds terbinafine and naftifine enhance selected functions of PMNs.
The possible role of squalene and its peroxide of the sebum in the occurrence of sunburn and protection from the damage caused by U.V. irradiation.
TLDR
To clarify the role of squalene peroxide in the occurrence of skin damage from sunburn, the optimum condition of squAlene peroxidation and the effect ofSqualenes peroxide on cutaneous tissue were examined and good correspondence was recognized among the spectrum of natural daylight, U.V. irradiation, and absorption spectrum of Squalene and erythema curve.
The antiinflammatory effects of ketoconazole. A comparative study with hydrocortisone acetate in a model using living and killed Staphylococcus aureus on the skin of guinea-pigs.
TLDR
In the animal model involving killed bacteria, topical ketoconazole had antiinflammatory activity comparable to that of hydrocortisone acetate and this molecule might also have effects against gram-positive bacteria at the high concentrations obtained after local application.
Modification of neutrophil functions by naftifine
TLDR
In conclusion, NF alters membrane‐related responses in PMNs, and this alteration may be associated with a change in PMN morphology, which may account, in part, for its efficacy in inflammatory fungal skin diseases.
[Therapy of seborrheic eczema with an antifungal agent with an antiphlogistic effect].
TLDR
Investigations show, that cic has a strong antiphlogistic activity and offers a possibility to treat inflammatory mycoses without using corticosteroid combinations.
Treatment of dermatomycoses with topically applied allylamines: naftifine and terbinafine
Two examples of antifungal drugs belonging to the newly developed class of drugs referred to as allylamines have been evaluated for their efficacy, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile when used
Does naftifine have anti‐inflammatory properties? A double‐blind comparative study with 1% clotrimazole/1% hydrocortisone in clinically diagnosed fungal infection of the skin
TLDR
It is suggested that there is no clinical advantage in treating patients with clinically diagnosed fungal infection of the skin with an antimycotic/corticosteroid combination as opposed to naftifine alone.
Allylamine derivatives: new class of synthetic antifungal agents inhibiting fungal squalene epoxidase.
TLDR
SF 86-327 is a powerful specific inhibitor of fungal squalene epoxidase, a key enzyme in sterol biosynthesis, and exceeds clinical standards in the oral and topical treatment of guinea pig dermatophytoses.

TLDR
Two other introductions appear promising: terbinafine has been very effective in early trials in dermatophytoses, and amorolfine may have a particular role in isolated nail infection, whether caused by dermatophytes or by less common fungi.
The superficial mycoses and the dermatophytes.
