AbstractMiconazole at 10−5–10−4 M can kill Candidaalbicans in the logarithmic phase, but ketoconazole, the only established oral antifungal azole, cannot. Lethal potential in relation to growth phase was studied with Bay n 7133 and ICI 153,066, two recently developed oral triazoles. Each was strictly fungistatic regardless of phase of growth and was almost identical in effect to ketoconazole.
