Description / Action:
Interban F cream has mupirocin 2.0% w/w and Fluticasone propionate 0.005% w/w in a Cream base. It is a corticosteroid antibacterial cream containing Fluticasone Propionate. Fluticasone propionate is a glucocorticoid with high topical anti-inflammatory potency but low HPA axis suppressive activity after dermal administration. It has antimicrobial property and its unique structure is different from any other class of antibiotics. Mupicin works by blocking protein synthesis in bacteria by inhibiting enzymes helping in RNA synthesis (isoleucyl transfer-RNA synthetase). It, therefore, has a therapeutic index that is greater than most of the commonly used topical preparation. It has a low MIC value against sensitive skin pathogens. Mupirocin inhibits the growth and is effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It interrupts the growth of S. intermedius. Fluticasone is a steroid that is helpful in the management of inflammation. Fluticasone is safer than the systemic steroids.
