Effectiveness

How Abelcet Affects PatientsAmphotericin B is an antifungal medication that is effective in treating many species of fungi, including Histoplasma capsulatum, Coccidioides immitis, Candida species, Blastomyces dermatitidis, Rhodotorula, Cryptococcus neoformans, Sporothrix schenckii, Mucor mucedo, and Aspergillus fumigatus. While Candida albicans is usually sensitive to this drug, other species may not be as affected. Pseudallescheria boydii and Fusarium species are usually resistant to amphotericin B
How Abelcet works in the bodyAmphotericin B works by attacking the cell membrane of fungal organisms, causing it to become permeable and leak its contents. The drug binds to the sterol ergosterol, which is the main sterol contained in the fungal cell membrane. This bond is irreversible, leading to the destruction of the cell and death of the fungus.

When to interrupt dosage
