Amorolfine (or amorolfin), is an antifungal drug that inhibits D14 reductase and D7-D8 isomerase, which depletes ergosterol and causes ignosterol to accumulate in the fungal cytoplasmic cell membranes.
Additional recommended knowledge
Marketed as Curanail, Loceryl, Amorolfine is commonly available in the form of a Nail Lacquer, containing 5% Amorolfine as the active ingredient. It is currently available over the counter in the UK, having recently been re-classified from prescription-only status.
Amorolfine exhibits a broad spectrum of action, meaning that it kills a wide variety of different fungi, and when used as directed can actually cure the infection for a majority of sufferers.
