What is Naftifine?

Naftifine is a tertiary amine in which the nitrogen is substituted by methyl, alpha-naphthylmethyl, and (1E)-cinnamyl groups. It is used (usually as its hydrochloride salt) for the treatment of fungal skin infections. It has a role as an EC (squalene monooxygenase) inhibitor and a sterol biosynthesis inhibitor. It is a member of naphthalenes, a tertiary amine and an allylamine antifungal drug. (Source: ChEBI)
