Description

Sporanox Solution contains the active ingredient itraconazole, a triazole antifungal agent. It is designed to treat fungal infections, such as oral and esophageal candidiasis, systemic infections like aspergillosis or blastomycosis, and other fungal conditions that do not respond to other treatments. It works by inhibiting the fungal enzyme synthesizing ergosterol, an essential component of the fungal cell membrane, thus disrupting cell membrane formation and leading to the fungus’s death.
