Abstract
: Protein inhibitors are the common additives employed in the production of Amphotericin B to suppress the production of Amphotericin A, a less potent drug. Use of protein synthesis inhibitors for the production of Amphotericin B inhibiting Amphotericin A have been predominantly employed in the pharmaceutical industries. Although it reduces the production of Amphotericin A, it also yields lesser amounts of Amphotericin


This clearly indicates that addition of polyene antibiotics act synergistically in Amphotericin B production
