The resistance of microorganisms to antimicrobial drugs is a major issue for public health, with important consequences in terms of morbidity, mortality and resource use. The phenomenon is so serious that in some areas of the world resistant strains to all available drugs have been selected. Many conditions may result in the development of resistance: they include the indiscriminate or inappropriate (e.g., for viral infection or colonization) use of antibiotics, the excessive duration of the…

A major chemical group with antifungal activity, the azole derivatives, is examined and historical and state of the art information on the in vitro activity, experimental in vivo activity, mode of action, pharmacokinetics, clinical studies, and uses and adverse reactions are examined.
Effect of Fenticonazole in Vaginal Candidiasis: A Double-Blind Clinical Trial versus Clotrimazole
An equally high efficacy and safety for both drugs in the elimination of symptoms and objective evidence of vaginal candidiasis is indicated.
[Efficiency of fenticonazole for the treatment of vaginal candidiasis].
Good efficacy and safety of fenticonazole in the treatment of vaginal candidiasis was confirmed, and control after seven days showed a statistically significant decrease of symptoms.
Impact of Antimicrobial Dosing Regimen on Evolution of Drug Resistance In Vivo: Fluconazole and Candida albicans
The association between dosing and resistance emergence observed in the current investigation is disparate from that described for antimicrobial compounds with cidal killing characteristics, and the inhibitory or static antimicrobial activity of the triazole compounds may explain these differences.
Efficacy and tolerance of fenticonazole versus miconazole cream.
It is concluded that fenticonazoles 2% cream is an effective antimycotic with an equal or even higher activity than miconazole.

Application of fenticonazole nitrate 1 g intravaginal ovules on 2 alternate days is a suitable first-line treatment of vulvovaginitis with acceptable broad-spectrum efficacy against the most commonly involved pathogens and with a low rate of early relapse, reserving antibiotics for patients with treatment failure or relapse of infection.
