Abstract

During the combined use of the ointment with amphotericin B and ultrasound after 1, 3, 24, 48 and 72 hours there was detected a higher content of the drug in the skin and the subcutaneous fatty tissue as compared with the epicutaneous application of the ointment without ultrasound. The drug contents in the insonified and non-insonified samples increased by the 3rd hour after the application except the insonified skin, where the maximal values were noted after 1 hour; subsequently (after 24, 48 and 72 hours) amphotericin B concentration gradually decreased. It remained significantly higher in the insonified samples than in the non-insonified ones. The data ground the expediency of using the ointment with amphotericin B in combination with ultrasound in candidosis that is one of the ways of increasing the effectiveness of treatment of this disease.
