Each uncoated ketomac tablet contains ketoconazole 200mg for oral administration. But these tablets can only and only be taken when other effective antifungal therapy is not available or tolerated and the potential benefits are considered to be the potential risks.
How it works?
The ketoconazole in the ketomac tablets blocks the synthesis of ergosterol which is a key component of the fungal cell membrane. The procedure is done through the inhibition of cytochrome P-450 dependent enzyme lanosterol 14α—demethylase responsible for the conversion of lanosterol to ergosterol in the fungal cell membrane. This whole process results in an accumulation of methylated sterol precursors and a depletion of ergosterol within the cell membrane which in turn weakens the structure and function of the fungal cell membrane and significantly helps in leaking the fungal cell to result in death. offers a nice circumstance to prevent those skin conditions from occurring, especially in people who are prone to such conditions.
