Use of azole compounds for the treatment of experimental aspergillosis in turkeys.

Abstract

A model for aspergillosis by injecting fungal spores into the lung is described. The model permits evaluation of anti-mycotic agents and their effect on the development of lesions in the infected lung, the spreading to the second lung and other organs. The therapeutic effect of the azole compounds enilconazole, ketoconazole, itraconazole and levamisole was determined. Itraconazole was found to be the most effective.
