Nail penetration of sertaconazole with a sertaconazole-containing nail patch formulation. 
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Sertaconazole, an imidazole antifungal drug, has been proven to have broad and potent antifungal activity. In the present study, the pharmacokinetics of sertaconazole nail patches, developed for treatment of onychodystrophy and onychomycosis, were investigated in healthy volunteers. The objective of the study was to investigate the penetration of sertaconazole into the nail and plasma and the residual sertaconazole concentration in patches after 1 week of application onto the nails... CONCLUSION: By virtue of their positive influence (occlusion) on water and lipid metabolism in dystrophic nails, nail patches should have beneficial therapeutic effects in onychodystrophic conditions. Addition of the antifungal agent sertaconazole adds broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. In this study, the concentrations of sertaconazole in the nails were shown to be well above the MIC values for pathogenic fungi relevant to onychomycosis. No systemic absorption of the active ingredient was detectable, which should exclude unwanted systemic effects of the drug.
