MONOGUARD SHAMPOO works by slowing the growth of fungi that causes infection. Sertaconazole acts primarily by inhibiting the cytochrome P450-dependent synthesis of ergosterol (key component of cell membrane of fungi) and lack of this component leads to fungal cell injury. Zinc pyrithione mediates its action by increasing the cellular levels of copper and damaging the iron-sulfur cluster of proteins needed for fungal metabolism and growth.
