Fluconazole is a triazole antifungal drug used in the treatment and prevention of superficial and systemic fungal infections. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the pharmacology, clinical uses and health effects of fluconazole. Topics discussed include the utilization of fluconazole in adult intensive care units; the use of fluconazole in veterinary species and a description of variances from the human experience as well as findings in veterinary species which may have applicability in human medicine; common clinical uses and in vitro activity features on fluconazole; and the discovery and development of medically-important antifungal agents, particularly the azole derivatives and the development of fluconazole and its clinical applications.
