ADVERSE REACTIONS SECTION.


6 ADVERSE REACTIONS. The most common adverse reaction (>=1%) is pruritus. (6.1)To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact Taro Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc., at 1-866-923-4914 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.. 6.1 Clinical Trials Experience. Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.During clinical trials, 903 subjects were exposed to naftifine 1% and 2% cream formulations. total of 564 subjects with interdigital tinea pedis, tinea cruris, or tinea corporis were treated with Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream.In two randomized, vehicle-controlled trials (400 subjects were treated with Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream). The population was 12 to 88 years old, primarily male (79%), 48% Caucasian, 36% Black or African American, 40% Hispanic or Latino and had either predominantly interdigital tinea pedis or tinea cruris. Most subjects received doses once-daily, topically, for weeks to cover the affected skin areas plus 1/2 inch margin of surrounding healthy skin. In the two vehicle-controlled trials, 17.5% of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream treated subjects experienced an adverse reaction compared with 19.3% of vehicle subjects. The most common adverse reaction (>=1%) is pruritus. Most adverse reactions were mild in severity. The incidence of adverse reactions in the Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream treated population was not significantly different than in the vehicle treated population.In third randomized, vehicle-controlled trial, 116 pediatric subjects with tinea corporis were treated with Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream. The population was aged >=2 to <18 years (mean age of years), predominately male (61%), 47% White, 51% Black or African American, 92% Hispanic or Latino, and infected with tinea corporis. Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream was topically applied once daily for weeks to all affected body surface areas with tinea corporis plus 1/2 inch margin of healthy skin surrounding the affected lesions. The incidence of adverse reactions in the Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream treated population was not significantly different than in the vehicle treated population.In two open-label pediatric pharmacokinetics and safety trials, 49 pediatric subjects to <18 years of age with interdigital tinea pedis, tinea cruris, and tinea corporis received Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream. The incidence of adverse reactions in the pediatric population was similar to that observed in the adult population.. 6.2 Postmarketing Experience. The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of naftifine hydrochloride: redness/irritation, inflammation, maceration, swelling, burning, blisters, serous drainage, crusting, headache, dizziness, leukopenia, agranulocytosis.Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish causal relationship to drug exposure.

MICROBIOLOGY SECTION.


12.4 Microbiology. Although the exact mechanism of action against fungi is not known, naftifine hydrochloride appears to interfere with sterol biosynthesis by inhibiting the enzyme squalene 2, 3-epoxidase.This inhibition of enzyme activity results in decreased amounts of sterols, especially ergosterol, and corresponding accumulation of squalene in the cells.. Mechanism of ResistanceTo date, mechanism of resistance to naftifine has not been identified.Naftifine has been shown to be active against most isolates of the following fungi, both in vitro and in clinical infections, as described in the INDICATIONS AND USAGE section: Trichophyton rubrum. Trichophyton rubrum.

CARCINOGENESIS & MUTAGENESIS & IMPAIRMENT OF FERTILITY SECTION.


13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility. In 2-year dermal carcinogenicity study, naftifine hydrochloride cream was administered to Sprague-Dawley rats at topical doses of 1%, 2% and 3% (10 mg/kg/day, 20 mg/kg/day, and 30 mg/kg/day naftifine hydrochloride). No drug-related tumors were noted in this study up to the highest dose evaluated in this study of 30 mg/kg/day (12 times MRHD based on AUC comparison).Naftifine hydrochloride revealed no evidence of mutagenic or clastogenic potential based on the results of two in vitro genotoxicity tests (Ames assay and Chinese hamster ovary cell chromosome aberration assay) and one in vivo genotoxicity test (mouse bone marrow micronucleus assay).Oral administration of naftifine hydrochloride to rats, throughout mating, gestation, parturition and lactation, demonstrated no effects on growth, fertility or reproduction, at doses up to 100 mg/kg/day (6 times MRHD based on mg/m2 comparison).

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY SECTION.


12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY. 12.1 Mechanism of Action. Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream is topical antifungal drug [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.4)] 12.2 Pharmacodynamics. The pharmacodynamics of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream have not been established.. 12.3 Pharmacokinetics. In vitro and in vivo bioavailability studies have demonstrated that naftifine penetrates the stratum corneum in sufficient concentration to inhibit the growth of dermatophytes.The pharmacokinetics of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream was evaluated following once-daily topical application for weeks to 21 adult subjects, both males and females, with both tinea pedis and tinea cruris. The median total amount of cream applied was 6.4 (range 5.3 to 7.5 g) per day. The results showed that the systemic exposure (i.e., maximum concentration (Cmax) and area under the curve from time to 24 hours (AUC0-24)) to naftifine increased over the week treatment period in all the 21 subjects. Geometric mean (coefficient of variation or CV%) AUC0-24 was 117 (41.2) nghr/mL on Day 1, and 204 (28.5) nghr/mL on Day 14. Geometric mean (CV%) Cmax was ng/mL (55.6) on Day and 11 ng/mL (29.3) on Day 14. Median time to Cmax (Tmax) was hours (range: to 24 hours) on Day and hours (range: to 16 hours) on Day 14. Accumulation after 14 days of topical application was less than two fold. Trough concentrations generally increased throughout the 14 day study period. Naftifine continued to be detected in plasma in 13/21 (62%) subjects on Day 28, the mean (standard deviation or SD) plasma concentrations were 1.6 +- 0.5 ng/mL (range below limit of quantitation (BLQ) to ng/mL). In the same pharmacokinetic trial conducted in patients with tinea pedis and tinea cruris, median fraction of the dose excreted in urine during the treatment period was 0.0016% on Day versus 0.0020% on Day 14.In second trial that enrolled 22 subjects, the pharmacokinetics of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream was evaluated in 20 pediatric subjects 13 to <18 years of age with both tinea pedis and tinea cruris. Subjects were treated with median dose of 8.1 (range 6.6 to 10.1 g) applied to the affected areas once daily for weeks. The results showed that the systemic exposure increased over the treatment period. Geometric mean (CV%) AUC0-24 was 138 (50.2) nghr/mL on Day 1, and 192 (74.9) nghr/mL on Day 14. Geometric mean (CV%) Cmax was 9.21 ng/mL (48.4) on Day and 12.7 ng/mL (67.2) on Day 14. Median fraction of the dose excreted in urine during the treatment period was 0.0030% on Day and 0.0033% on Day 14.A third trial evaluated the pharmacokinetics of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream in 27 pediatric subjects to 12 years of age with at least moderate tinea corporis. Subjects were divided into younger (ages to 6 years, 17 subjects) and older (6 to <12 years, 10 subjects) groups. Median doses of 1.3 (range to 3.1 g) and 2.3 (range 2.2 to 4.2 g) were applied once-daily for weeks in the younger and older groups, respectively, to the affected area plus 1/2 inch margin. Plasma and urine pharmacokinetic assessments were conducted on Day in the older group only and on Day 14 in both groups. All subjects showed measurable levels of naftifine in plasma after topical application of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream. Following single dose on Day in subjects to 12 years of age, the geometric mean (CV%) values of Cmax and AUC0-24 were 3.60 (76.6) ng/mL and 49.8 (64.4) ngh/mL, respectively. On Day 14 in this group, the Cmax and AUC0-24 were 3.31 (51.2) ng/mL and 52.4 (49.2) ngh/mL, respectively. In subjects to 6 years of age on Day 14, the Cmax and AUC0-24 were 3.98 (186) ng/mL and 54.8 (150) ngh/mL, respectively. In the older group of subjects to 12 years of age, the systemic exposures (both Cmax and AUC0-24) on Days and 14 were comparable. The median fraction of the dose excreted into urine over 24 hours following drug applications on Day and Day 14 was 0.0029% and 0.0014%, respectively.. 12.4 Microbiology.

Reduced body weight gain of females during gestation and of the offspring during lactation was noted at 300 mg/kg/day (18 times MRHD). No developmental toxicity was noted at 100 mg/kg/day (6 times MRHD).. 8.2 Lactation. Risk SummaryThere is no information available on the presence of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream in human milk, the effects of the drug on the breastfed infant, or the effects of the drug on milk production. The lack of clinical data during lactation precludes clear determination of the risk of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream to an infant during lactation; therefore, the development and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mothers clinical need for Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant from Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream or from the underlying maternal condition.. 8.4 Pediatric Use. The safety and effectiveness of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream have been established in pediatric patients age 12 and above with interdigital tinea pedis and tinea cruris and age and above with tinea corporis [see Clinical Studies (14) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].Use of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream in these age groups is supported by evidence from adequate and well controlled studies in adults and children, with additional safety and PK data from two open label trials conducted in 49 pediatric subjects exposed to Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream [see Clinical Studies (14) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].Safety and effectiveness of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream in the treatment of tinea cruris and interdigital tinea pedis in pediatric patients less than 12 years of age have not been established. Safety and effectiveness of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream in the treatment of tinea corporis in pediatric patients less than years of age have not been established.. 8.5 Geriatric Use. Clinical studies of Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently from younger subjects.
