Clinical significance:
The antifungal drug voriconazole is commonly used in the treatment of various types of fungal infections. An increased fungal resistance to similar drugs of greater toxicity has promoted the use of voriconazole in treating infections caused by aspergillus and other fungal species. The chronic nature of fungal infections demands constant monitoring of voriconazole levels within a patient to ensure that adequate therapeutic levels of the drug are administered, absorbed and subsequently excreted.
