drug description

Corticosteroids for use in dermatology.

ATC Code D07A C14.

Methyprednisolone aceponate (6a-MPA) is dehalogenation corticosteroids synthetic molecule, which is characterized by a high degree of dissociation in the implementation of its local and systemic action.

6a-methyl group has a potentiating effect and lipophilic ester groups provide better penetration through the skin.

the Local anti-inflammatory effect, confirmed by pharmacological and clinical pharmacological studies, is similar to the effect of corticosteroids of potent action. System action methyprednisolone MPA when the local application according to studies, expressed slightly. 


    Active substance of the drug Advantanis rapidly absorbed through the skin, but absorption is weak (<1% of the dose within 24 hours in the intact skin without occlusion, 3% with occlusion). The

  • Percutaneous absorption as a result of treatment with the use of high doses in patients with atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, is 2.5% in adults and 0.5-2% in children.
  • The
  • On the human skin, the active substance of the drug Advantancontributes to the creation by hydrolysis of a highly active metabolite with high affinity to intracellular receptors, immediately inactivated by glucuronic conjugation immediately after absorption. In the human body after the introduction of excretion of inactive metabolites in the ratio of 1.5 between the output of urine and feces. The half - life is about 16 hours, and binding to plasma proteins-90%. 
  • any possibility of accumulation is excluded.


Atopic dermatitis (neurodermatitis, endogenous eczema) is the real (true) eczema, irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis Skin eczema, baby eczema, seborrheic dermatitis (and eczema), including in the scalp area of the head; numularia eczema, dermatitis of the scalp with an inflammatory nature, accompanied by itching.

appropriate safety precautions for use

in the treatment of a pathological process on a large area of the skin, the duration of therapy should be clearly defined by the doctor.

In bacterial infectious processes of the skin and/or in the case of fungal infections need extra special treatment with antibiotic and/or antifungal drugs.

When applying Advantanavoid contact with eyes and deep open wounds, on mucous membranes.

using MPA on 60% of the body surface under occlusive dressing for 22 hours in healthy adults there was a decrease in the level of cortisol in blood plasma and the impact on its daily rhythm. When applying Advantana large surface of the skin (40 - 90% of the skin surface) without the use of occlusion in children (in newborns, occlusive dressing can be performed by a diaper), there was no violation of the function of the adrenal cortex. Despite this, when applied to a large surface of the skin, the duration of treatment should be as short as possible.

the risk of side effects is significantly increased when applying GCS for topical use over large areas of the body or over a long period, especially under occlusive dressing.

As in the case of systemic application of corticosteroids, in case of their topical application may cause glaucoma (for example, after use at high doses or over a large surface for a long period, use of occlusive dressings, or applied to the skin around the eyes). 

the administration of drugs intended for local use, over a long period may cause sensitization. In this case, it is necessary to stop therapy and carry out appropriate treatment.

Some epidemiological studies provide an opportunity to suspect an increased risk for palatoschisis in newborns whose mothers received treatment with corticosteroids during the I. trimester of pregnancy.

Palatoschisis very rare pathology. If we consider the possibility of teratogenic effect of systemic corticosteroids, their effect can be attributed to an increase of 1-2 cases per 1000 women who received this treatment during pregnancy.

currently, there is no reliable data regarding the use of the drug Advantanpregnant, however, a minimum risk should be expected, since the probability of systemic corticosteroids for topical use is very low.
