INTRODUCTION

LULIPEX contains Luliconazole which belongs to the group of medicines called azole antifungal agents. It is indicated for the topical treatment of tinea pedis, tinea cruris and tinea corporis in adult patients. Tinea pedis (athlete’s foot) is a dermatophyte infection of soles of feet and interdigital spaces. Tinea cruris, also known as jock itch is a superficial fungus infection of crotch (region where your leg joins) and perineum. Tinea corporis, popularly known as ringworm, is a fungal infection characterized by red, itchy, circular rash with clearer skin in the middle.

Luliconazole exerts its antifungal activity by disrupting the permeability of normal fungal cell membrane. It inhibits the enzyme lanosterol demethylase, which results in decreased amounts of ergosterol, which is a major component of the fungus cell membranes. LULIPEX is generally well tolerated and does not pose any side effects. However, if you experience any application site reactions, check with your physician. This medicine should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Consult your doctor before using. It is not known whether luliconazole can be excreted in breast milk. It should be used with caution in lactating mothers.

USES OF LULIPEX

  • Treats tinea pedis, tinea cruris and tinea corporis in adults

HOW LULIPEX WORKS

Luliconazole inhibits the synthesis of ergosterol by inhibiting the enzyme called lanosterol demethylase in the susceptible fungi. Inhibition of lanosterol demethylase by luliconazole results in decreased concentration of ergosterol, a constituent of fungal cell membranes, and a corresponding accumulation of lanosterol.
