Posaconazole has also shown in vitro fungistatic
and fungicidal activity against Cryptococcus neoformans (3-5, 17, 18).
This drug, which is being developed as a therapeutic mouthwash, is a 12-amino acid fragment of histatin 5, a compound produced by the body that has fungistatic

The formulation of Clear Defense includes a durable acrylic polymer and fungistatic
Foster 40-50 uses the same patented formulation of fungistatic

Our observation is supported by previous in vitro studies in which clinically applicable HBO has shown a fungistatic
effect on various fungal species, including Aspergillus.
The company feels the "killing" effect may be an important benefit of anidulafungin, because the target population is severely immunosuppressed, and may be more effectively treated with a therapy that is fungicidal rather than fungistatic
The antimicrobial compound was bactericidal and bacteriolytic against Escherichia coli V517, bacteriostatic against Micrococcus luteus and fungistatic
against Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Every single drug we use to treat candidal vaginitis is fungistatic
11-15] Other host factors, such as the roles of diabetic ketoacidosis and fungistatic
properties of serum have been explored.
The results of Zinc Omadine(at various strengths to create the fungistatic
effects are discussed.
Raisin paste and raisin juice concentrate can be added to bakery products to impart a natural brown colour, and the fungistatic
properties of both the dried fruit and its by-products is of particular interest.
