Precipitation of amphotericin B from i.v. fat emulsion






American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy 54(12): 1449-1449

Precipitation of amphotericin B from i.v. fat emulsion

The possibility of insufficient drug delivery when using amphotericin B prepared in fat emulsion is discussed. When the compatibility of amphotericin B with fat emulsion was examined by measuring interfacial tesion, a problem with precipitation was found with the mixture 15 minutes after preparation.
