Answer

Antifungals, Other

An antifungal may be used in the ProMACE-CytaBOM regimen. The mechanism of action may involve the inhibition of pathways (eg, enzyme, substrate, transport) that are necessary for sterol and/or cell membrane synthesis.

Ketoconazole

Imidazole broad-spectrum antifungal agent; it inhibits the synthesis of ergosterol, causing cellular components to leak and resulting in fungal cell death.
