Abstract

SUMMARY

Mepartricin, a polyene antibiotic with candidacidal and trichomonicidal activity, was found to be without toxic effects for human polymorphonuclear leucocytes; the drug seems to be unable to enter the human cells. Some synergism between the antifungal activities of mepartricin and of human leucocytes is seen if cells are pre-incubated with sub-lethal concentrations of the drug.
