Micronized Ketoconazole


Ketoconazole belongs to the azole group of anti-fungal. It is a fungistatic agent which causes growth arrest in fungal cells thereby preventing growth and spread of the fungus throughout the body. Ketoconazole inhibit the synthesis of ergosterol (the main fungal sterol). Ketoconazole targets the enzyme used for synthesis of ergosterol. The mechanism of action is believed to be based on the inhibition of fungal cytochrome P450 enzyme. This in turn impairs the biosynthesis of ergosterol. Ergosterol is a vital component of fungal cell membranes and changes the composition of other lipid components in the membrane. Impaired synthesis of ergosterol eventually leads to cell death and elimination of the fungus.
