A lacrosse player develops athlete’s foot (tinea pedis). A drug with which the following mechanisms would be most effective for this patient?
Correct Answer: C. Inhibition of ergosterol synthesis
Tinea pedis is a fungus and therefore does not have mycolic acids (B), reverse transcriptase (D), or hemagglutinin (A). A transcription inhibitor (E) would also affect the patient’s normal cells, resulting in terrible side effects. Therefore, inhibition of ergosterol synthesis (C) is the most effective therapy.
