of Advantan® medicine
the Trade name
the International unlicensed name
of Methylprednisolonum atseponat
Fat ointment of 0.1%, 15 g
of 1 g of fat ointment contains
active agent – Methylprednisolonum atseponat 1.00 mg,
excipients: paraffin white soft, liquid paraffin, wax microcrystalline, the castor oil hydrogenated.
From white till yellowish color, translucent fat ointment.
Glucocorticosteroids for topical treatment of diseases of skin. Glucocorticosteroids active (Group III). Methylprednisolonum atseponat.
ATX D07AC14 code
Methylprednisolonum Pharmacokinetics properties atseponat gets into skin from a basis of a dosage form. Its concentration decreases in the direction from a corneal layer to inside layers of skin.
Methylprednisolonum atseponat it is hydrolyzed in epidermis and a derma. The main thing and the most active metabolite is 6α-метилпреднизолон-17-пропионат which contacts kortikoidny receptors of skin in comparison with initial drug stronger that indicates existence of its bioactivation in skin.
Degree and intensity of transdermal absorption depends on many factors, such as chemical structure of active agent, structure of a basis of a dosage form, concentration of active agent at the heart of a dosage form, conditions when putting drug (the area of drawing, influence duration, on the open site of skin or under an occlusive bandage) and conditions of skin (type and severity of a disease, anatomic localization).
Transdermal absorption after open use of fat Advantan® ointment on 20 g 2 times a day within 5 days was estimated as corresponding 0.34% that corresponds to kortikoidny loading about 2 mkg/kg/day.
Transdermal absorption of a metiprednizolon of the atseponat through the injured skin during removal of a corneal layer leads to distinct increase in extent of absorption (13-27% of a dose). At the adult patients having psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, transdermal absorption of Methylprednisolonum of the atseponat at use of fat Advantan® ointment was about 2.5%.
At three children (9-10 years) having atopic dermatitis, transdermal absorption of Methylprednisolonum of the atseponat at use of fat Advantan® ointment was about 0.5-2% that does not exceed the indicator received at adult patients.
After hit in a system blood stream the product of primary hydrolysis 6α-метилпреднизолон-17-пропионат is quickly conjugated with glucuronic acid, and thus is inactivated. Atseponat Methylprednisolonum metabolites (from which main thing is 6α-метилпреднизолон-17-пропионат-21-глюкуронид) eliminirutsya, mainly, by kidneys with elimination half-life about 16 hours. After intravenous administration the excretion with urine and a stake came to the end within 7 days. Methylprednisolonum atseponat and its metabolites do not kumulirutsya in an organism.
At external use of Advantan® fat ointment suppresses inflammatory and allergic skin reactions, also as well as the reactions connected with the strengthened proliferation that leads to reduction of objective symptoms (an erythema, hypostasis, infiltration) and subjective feelings (itching, burning, pain).
Methylprednisolonum atseponat (especially its main metabolite – 6α-метилпреднизолон-17-пропионат) contacts intracellular glucocorticoid receptors.
The steroid-receptor complex contacts certain sites of DNA, thus, causing a series of biological effects.
In particular, binding steroid – a receptor complex with DNA leads to macrocortinum synthesis induction. Macrocortinum inhibits release of arachidonic acid and, thereby, formation of mediators of inflammation of type of prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
Immunosuppressive action of glucocorticoids can speak an ingibrovaniye of synthesis of cytokines and antimitotic effect which is still studied insufficiently.
The inhibition glucocorticoids of synthesis of vazodilatiruyushchy prostaglandins or potentiation of vasoconstrictive effect of adrenaline finally is resulted in vasopressor effect.

the Route of administration and doses
As a rule, apply drug 1 time a day with a thin layer on affected areas of skin.
As a rule, duration of treatment of Advantanom® should not exceed 12 weeks for adults.
Patients of children’s age
newborns, children and teenagers do not need dose adjustment when assigning Advantana®. As a rule, duration of treatment of Advantanom® at children should not exceed 4 weeks.
At use of Advantan® of fat ointment were most often observed a folliculitis and burning on the site of application of drug.
Often (& gt, 1/100, & lt, 1/10)
– a folliculitis, burning in the place putting drug
Infrequently (& gt, 1/1,000, & lt, 1/100)
– pustules, vesiculation, an itching, pain, an erythema, papules on the site of application of drug
– cracks of skin, a telangiectasia
With an unknown frequency
– an acne
Also as when using other corticosteroids for topical administration, the following local side reactions can be noted:
– an atrophy of skin, a striya, a folliculitis on the site of application of drug, a hypertrichosis, telangiectasias, perioral dermatitis, a skin diskoloration, and allergic skin reactions to any of components of a dosage form. System effects of corticosteroids can be observed at their topical administration owing to drug absorption.
– hypersensitivity to active agent or to any of drug excipients
– tubercular or syphilitic processes in the field of putting drug
– viral diseases (for example, chicken pox, shingles) in the field of putting drug
– a rozatse, perioral dermatitis, ulcers, acne rash, atrophic diseases of skin, vaccine-challenged skin reactions in the field of putting drug
are not established.
in the presence of a bacterial dermatosis and/or dermatomycoses in addition to therapy of Advantanom® it is necessary to carry out specific antibacterial or anti-mycotic treatment.
At use of fat Advantan® ointment it is necessary to be careful to avoid hit of drug in eyes, deep open wounds and on mucous membranes.
At use of Advantan® of fat ointment of 0.1% for children for big surfaces (40-90% of a surface of skin) in the absence of an occlusive bandage, disturbances of functions of adrenal glands are not noted.
Causing excessively large number of local corticosteroids on the extensive surfaces of skin or for a long time, especially under an occlusive bandage, can increase risk of development of system side effects considerably. It must be kept in mind that pampers can have occlusal effect.
As well as at use of system corticosteroids, glaucoma at use of local corticosteroids can develop (for example, after high doses, or at extensive putting drug for a long time, uses of occlusive bandages or putting drug on skin around eyes).
Pregnancy and the period of a lactation
Adequate data on use of drug during pregnancy are absent.
As a rule, it is necessary to avoid use of the local drugs containing corticosteroids during the first trimester of pregnancy. In particular, during pregnancy it is necessary to avoid putting drug on the big surfaces of skin, prolonged use or drawing under an occlusive bandage.
There are epidemiological data indicating perhaps increased risk of development of not fusion of the sky at newborns whose mothers received treatments by glucocorticoids during the first trimester of pregnancy.
At the clinical indication for treatment of Advantan® fat ointment during pregnancy it is necessary to weigh carefully potential risk and the expected advantage of treatment.
It is unknown whether it is allocated Methylprednisolonum atseponat with breast milk as system corticosteroids which as it is reported, can cosecrete with breast milk.
It is unknown whether can lead topical administration of Advantan® of fat ointment to the sufficient system absorption of a metiprednizolon of the atseponat sufficient for its identification in breast milk.
Therefore the feeding women should be careful when prescribing drug.
At nursing mothers drug cannot be applied on mammary glands. It is necessary to avoid putting drug on the big surfaces of skin, prolonged use or drawing under an occlusive bandage in the period of a lactation.
Features of influence of medicine on ability to drive the car or potentially dangerous mechanisms.
Does not influence.
When studying acute toxicity of drug any risk of acute intoxication at excessive single skin use was not revealed (putting drug on the big square under the conditions favorable for absorption) or inadvertent intake.
