Suitability of caspofungin for aerosol delivery: physicochemical profiling and nebulizer choice.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Aerosolized antifungal therapy is a promising route of drug delivery for pulmonary aspergillosis due to attainment of high localized concentrations. Caspofungin, a new antifungal agent with proven efficacy against invasive aspergillosis, has ideal potential for aerosolization. STUDY OBJECTIVE To examine in vitro the suitability of caspofungin… (More)
