Abstract:

The options for the treatment of dermatophytosis being limited, an effective and safe antifungal therapy is highly desired. Fungi-FreeTM has the potential for use in the treatment of dermatophytosis. Guinea pigs are susceptible to dermatophytosis similar to humans. Their large body surface provides sufficient area to perform experiments. Thus, a guinea pig model of dermatophytosis has been used in efficacy studies of antifungal agents.
