Sertraline in Addition to Standard of Care Treatment for Coccidioidomycosis

2016-09-20 20:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In this study patients will be randomized 1:2 to receive either standard of care treatment or standard of care + Sertraline 200mg/day for 2 weeks, then 400 mg/day for 50 weeks for treatment of disseminated and meningeal coccidioidomycosis.

Description

Sertraline has been demonstrated to have in-vitro activity against coccidioides, and in-vivo activity against cryptococcal meningitis in clinical trials. Disseminated and meningeal coccidiodes infections require lifelong treatment, have poor outcomes, and new treatment options are needed. In this study the investigators will determine safety and tolerability of adjunctive sertraline (grade 4-5 adverse reactions) compared to standard coccidioidomycosis therapy alone.

A mitosporic fungal genus which causes COCCIDIOIDOMYCOSIS.

A sterile solution containing the by-products of growth products of COCCIDIOIDES IMMITIS, injected intracutaneously as a test for COCCIDIOIDOMYCOSIS.

Infection with a fungus of the genus COCCIDIOIDES, endemic to the SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES. It is sometimes called valley fever but should not be confused with RIFT VALLEY FEVER. Infection is caused by inhalation of airborne, fungal particles known as arthroconidia, a form of FUNGAL SPORES. A primary form is an acute, benign, self-limited respiratory infection. A secondary form is a virulent, severe, chronic, progressive granulomatous disease with systemic involvement. It can be detected by use of COCCIDIOIDIN.
