The pradimicins are a new class of antifungal agents with activity against the majority of human fungal pathogens. In this study, the in vitro activity of pradimicin BMS-181184 was investigated against a range of the most common species of Aspergillus. The results were compared with itraconazole and amphotericin B. BMS-181184 was found to be active against most Aspergillus spp., but at higher concentrations than itraconazole and amphotericin B.
