This is important when pathogenic fungi are exposed to a drug for a prolonged time, particularly when the agent is fungistatic
. Ifit is fungicidal, death is usually rapid and thus it is unlikely there is enough time for resistance to emerge.
The use of the boron-glycol resulted in much higher levels of boron in the bark zone (0.445% BAE) that approached the reported fungistatic
level against P.
They are fungicidal against Candida, but only create hyphal morphologic changes in Aspergillus and hence are fungistatic

and Mycobacteriostatic in Nature.
activity was defined by CFU reductions < 3-logs from the starting inoculum, and fungicidal activity was defined by CFU reductions [greater than or equal to] 3-logs (denoted by dashed lines in Figures 1-5).
The fungicidal activity was then determined by calculating the minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) of the NPs with fungicidal or fungistatic

and bacteristatic compound," Industrial Crops and Products, vol.
The exchange of Petri dish lids occurred in order to evaluate the existence of fungistatic
activity of the oils on spore germination, with 24 and 48 h of incubation.
Prudent D, Perineau F, Bessiere JM, Michel GM, Baccou JC (1995) Analysis of the essential oil of wild oregano from Martinique (Coleus aromaticus Benth.) -evaluation of its bacteriostatic and fungistatic
By the type of action, the fungal cells are distinguished fungicidal and fungistatic
Itraconazole and clotrimazole belong to azole group and both are fungistatic
. Itraconazole is highly keratophilic and lipophilic triazole which impairs fungal cell wall synthesis by inhibiting cytochrome P 450 dependent 14 alpha lanosterol demethylase enzyme and interferes with fungal ergosterol synthesis7.
