Inflammatory diseases of the skin that require treatment with corticosteroids for local use. Prednitop, an cream, is used for the treatment of acute and chronic diseases of the skin when the skin is wet, normal or dry.
Benzyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, 2.5 mg prednicarbate, purified water, light mineral oil, sorbitan stearate, myristyl alcohol, polysorbate 60.
Prednitop is produced in the form of an opaque, slightly shiny white cream, sealed in a tube, 10 g each, which is packed in a cardboard box, 1 tube each.
Prednicarbate, which is part of the drug Prednitop, specially designed for external use, a potent glucocorticoid with a pronounced anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-exudative, antiproliferative and antipruritic effect.
The antiproliferative effect of glucocorticoids is due to the reduced circulation rate of the involved cells and the reduced intensity of DNA synthesis. This is known to result in inhibition of granulation, wound closure, and fibroblast proliferation.
The antiallergic action of glucocorticoids is explained by their immunosuppressive action and effect on antibody- and cell-mediated hypersensitivity. The immunosuppressive action of glucocorticoids is based mainly on the reduction of the number and activity of lymphocytes (T-lymphocytes), B-cells.
Antibody-mediated hypersensitivity is also affected by inhibition of the release of vasoactive substances (eg, histamine), and cell-mediated hypersensitivity is affected by a decrease in the release of lymphokines.
The anti-inflammatory effect is based in part on the effect on the metabolism of arachidonic acid and, as a consequence, on the reduction of the formation of inflammatory mediators (eg, prostaglandins, leukotrienes). On the other hand, excessive cell signals are reduced to normal.
The results of double-blind studies showed that from the point of view of clinical efficacy of precarbate, despite the fact that it does not contain halogen, it is equivalent to halogenated corticoids such as betamethasone valerate, deoxymethasone or fluorocortholone.
The extremely small effect of prednicarbate on collagen synthesis and the growth of fibroblasts in human skin reflects the insignificant atrophogenic ability of the active substance. Inhibition of the synthesis of autogenous cortisol after application to a large area of the affected skin (psoriasis, neurodermatitis) in the case of prednicarbate was not observed.
