Definition (NCI) A synthetic derivative of phenylpiperazine with broad antifungal properties and potential antineoplastic activity. Ketoconazole inhibits sterol 14-a-dimethylase, a microsomal cytochrome P450-dependent enzyme, thereby disrupting synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of the fungal cell wall. (NCI04)
Definition (MSH) Broad spectrum antifungal agent used for long periods at high doses, especially in immunosuppressed patients.
Definition (CSP) 1-acetyl-4-(2,4-dichlorophenyl-2-imidazolylmethyl- 1,3- dioxolanylmethoxyphenyl) piperazine; broad spectrum, oral antifungal.
Definition (PDQ) A synthetic derivative of phenylpiperazine with broad antifungal properties and potential antineoplastic activity. Ketoconazole inhibits sterol 14-a-dimethylase, a microsomal cytochrome P450-dependent enzyme, thereby disrupting synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of the fungal cell wall.
