The antimycotic nystatin, in the past called fungicidin, has been isolated from Streptomyces noursei. It belongs, like amphotericin B, to the group of polyene macrolides. Nystatin is active (primarily fungistatic) against fungi (biphasic fungi, dermatophyta, molds) and yeast (concentrations usually between 0.5 – 20 μg/ml), at higher concentration fungicidal too (2-4fold concentration). Grampositive and -negative bacteria or viruses are resistant. The mode of action is based on the interaction steroids of the cell wall of fungi and yeasts.
