Compounded voriconazole is one of the most effective topical treatments for equine keratomycosis, according to a study presented at the 60th Annual Convention of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).
The report on the study notes that because limited topical ophthalmic antifungals are available, compounding is necessary to ensure the most effective treatment. The study surveys a number of topical treatments, and says of voriconazole:
“With excellent penetration and good efficacy against yeast and hyphae, voriconazole has emerged as a good option for antifungal therapy. . . . Voriconazole was found to outperform natamycin, fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole, and micronazole against in vitro isolates in a study by Pearce et al.”
