We examined the in vitro activity of caspofungin, posaconazole, voriconazole, ravuconazole, itraconazole, and amphotericin B against 448 recent clinical mold isolates. The endpoint for reading caspofungin was the minimum effective concentration (MEC). Among the triazoles, posaconazole was most active, inhibiting 95% of isolates at <or=1 microg/ml, followed by ravuconazole (91%), voriconazole (90%), and itraconazole (79%). Caspofungin and amphotericin B inhibited 93% and 89% of isolates at <or=1… CONTINUE READING
