-The active component of Daktanil® Oral Gel is miconazole
that is an imidazole antifungal agent with antimicrobial
activity against some Gram-Positive bacteria including
staphylococci and streptococci.
- Miconazole inhibits the biosynthesis of ergosterol in fungi
and changes the composition of other lipid components in
the cell membrane, resulting in leakage of the essential
intracellular constituents, and finally lead to fungal cell
- Daktanil® Oral Gel is poorly absorbed from
gastro-intestinal tract with little systemic side effects.
