How Does It Work?

Itraconazole is a highly selective inhibitor of fungal cytochrome P-450-dependent enzyme, thereby decreasing ergosterol biosynthesis and inhibits the formation of fungal cell membranes. Ergosterol is a significant component of the fungal cell membrane; inhibition of its synthesis leads to increased cellular permeability, thereby causing leakage of cellular contents.

  • Esophageal candidiasis
