Mayne Pharma announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Tolsura (SUBA-itraconazole) capsules for the treatment of blastomycosis (pulmonary and extrapulmonary), histoplasmosis (including chronic cavitary pulmonary disease and disseminated, non-meningeal histoplasmosis), and aspergillosis (pulmonary and extrapulmonary, in patients who are intolerant of or who are refractory to amphotericin B therapy).  

Tolsura is a new formulation of itraconazole, an azole antifungal, that utilizes the Company’s proprietary SUBA (SUper-BioAvailable) technology to improve the bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs. Itraconazole works by inhibiting the cytochrome P450-dependent synthesis of ergosterol, which is a vital component of the fungal cell membrane.
