What is the mode of action of bifonazole?
Bifonazole kills fungal infections. It penetrates infected skin within 20-30 minutes, and remains in the fungal cell for up to 120 hours. While in the fungal cell, it continuously disrupts the function and structure of its membrane. 3
Bifonazole is also able to inhibit an enzyme called keratinase, which stimulates inflammation. This helps reduce swelling and itchiness.
All these mechanisms and properties of bifonazole working together are how Canespro® Once-Daily is able to stop fungal growth, kill fungi and soothe itching.
Why is bifonazole indicated as once-daily?
Research found that a higher concentration of bifonazole stayed in the skin even hours after application, compared to clotrimazole4. A higher quantity of the antifungal compound penetrating into the skin per application means less total applications needed to achieve the same result.
Because of this, using Canespro® Once-Daily as indicated once a day is enough to rid oneself of the symptoms of fungal infection and keep it from coming back.
One study1 found that many patients reduce the frequency of applying their medication without being advised to do so, while others don’t even pay attention to the instructions on how often to apply their fungal infection cream. With a reduced need for applications and fast treatment time, Canespro® Once-Daily will benefit those seeking relief from their fungal woes.
