DESCRIPTION:
Metronidazole is a nitroimidazole antibiotic medication used particularly for anaerobic bacteria and protozoa. Metronidazole is an antibiotic, amebicide, and antiprotozoal. Clotrimazole is a broad-spectrum antifungal that belongs to the class of imidazole and triazole derivatives.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Clotrimazole acts by inhibiting the fungal cytochrome P450 enzyme-Lanosterol 14-demethylase, and thus impairs ergosterol synthesis leading to a cascade of membrane abnormalities in the fungus. Metronidazole is reduced by bacterial nitroreductase to an unstable intermediate, which interacts with DNA effectively, preventing further replication.
