DESCRIPTION:
Ketoconazole is an effective, broad-spectrum, systemic antifungal agent. Ketomac tablets containing Ketoconazole 200 mg for oral administration.
 
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Ketoconazole blocks the synthesis of ergosterol, a key component of the fungal cell membrane, through the inhibition of cytochrome P-450 dependent enzyme lanosterol 14?-demethylase responsible for the conversion of lanosterol to ergosterol in the fungal cell membrane. This results in an accumulation of methylated sterol precursors and a depletion of ergosterol within the cell membrane thus weakening the structure and function of the fungal cell membrane.
