Application

Ketoconazole has been used as a cytochrome P450 (CYP) inhibitor to study its functions in embryonic testes of rats. Ketoconazole has also been used for the screening of antimicrobial agents against nonreplicating M. tuberculosis. Furthermore, studies have used ketoconazole for antifungal susceptibility testing and also as a standard antifungal agent.
