Ambruticins are a family of polyketides. The antifungal activity of an ambruticin, KOSN-2079, was tested in the mouse model of invasive aspergillosis. KOSN-2079 significantly reduced pulmonary fungal burdens and improved survival over that with the vehicle control. These results support the continued development of ambruticins as antifungal agents.
