necrotizingfasciitis  Just adding support to the above explanation: +4
pakimd  do all azoles or just itraconazole only requires an acidic environment to be absorbed? +2
chandlerbas  just itraconazole and posaconazole +5
lilyo  @chandlerbas, where did you find this information? I was looking over this on FA but they do not mention it and I would like a bit more information. Thanks! +5
chandlerbas  haha no stress! the article above submitted by @necrotizingfasciitis does a descent job explaining it, however its not good enough, I looked into a bit more on uptodate but wasn't fruitful in my endeavours. goodluck! +
haozhier  How are we supposed to know this!! It is not in UWORLD or FA right? +14
kevin  Someone said it on here, since there was no CYP inducer of the answer choices, the only way to even think about an answer to this question was to just go with a less acidic environment from the PPI affecting absorption. It was simply the only reasonable answer choice, I don't think there's any way we were expected to know of this exact interaction prior +1
aoa05  Golan pharm book states the exact same thing. Cannot be given to patients with acholrhydria. +

coccidioinmytitties  Azoles, as a class, are CYP450 inhibitors [fungal > human; to prevent conversion of lanosterol to ergosterol]. Justget is correct- a โ†“pH is needed for absorption and PPI/H2RA/antacids are contraindicated. +

charcot_bouchard  Its not a cytochrome question. IK because i go t it wrong +1
waterloo  both azoles and PPI inhibit cytochrome P450. So one isn't causing the other's lack of effect. +9
stepwarrior  Nope. Inhibiting CYP450 would enhance the effect of itraconazole, so that can't be the mechanism. +2
