Ravuconazole (BMS-207147 and ER-30346) is a potent triazole antifungal, being developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb, that is currently in phase I/II clinical trials.[1] The drug has a shown to have a similar spectrum of activity to voriconazole, with an increased half-life.[2] However, ravuconazole has limited activity against species of Fusarium, Scedosporium, and Zygomycetes.[3][4]
