U40 Foam - Clinical Pharmacology

Urea, topically applied, dissolves the intercellular matrix of the skin which can result in enhanced shedding of scaly, dry skin which causes a softening of the hyperkeratotic areas of the skin. Applied to the nail plate topically, urea has a similar effect on the intercellular matrix of the nail plate.

PHARMACOKINETICS

The mechanism of action of topically applied urea is not yet known.

Indications and Usage for U40 Foam

For enzymatic debridement and promotion of normal healing of surface lesions, particularly where healing is halted by local infection, necrotic tissue, fibrinous or purulent debris or eschar. Urea, topically applied, is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dermatitis, xerosis, ichthyosis, psoriasis, eczema, keratosis, keratoderma and dry, rough skin, as well as corns and calluses. It is also useful in the treatment of damaged, ingrown and devitalized nails.

Contraindications

Known hypersensitivity to any of the listed ingredients.

Warnings

U40 Foam is for external use only. It is not for ophthalmic, oral, anal or intravaginal use. Contact with eyes, lips and all mucous membranes should be avoided. U40 Foam should not be used by persons who have a known hypersensitivity to urea or any of the other listed ingredients.

Precautions

U40 Foam should only be used as directed by a physician and should not be used to treat any condition other than that for which it is prescribed. If redness or irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult with prescribing physician.

Pregnancy (Category C): Animal reproduction studies have not been performed with topically applied urea and it is not known whether U40 Foam can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women. U40 Foam should be used by pregnant women, only under a physician’s recommendation.

Nursing Mothers: It is not known whether topically applied urea is excreted in human milk. Due to the fact that many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised by physicians when administering U40 Foam to nursing mothers.
