Subjects with intra-abdominal infection requiring surgery and Intensive Care Unit stay will be treated early with micafungin or placebo to determine the incidence and time to confirmation of fungal infection.
Subjects will be assessed at the following visits:
- Baseline (after surgery, prior to randomization)
- End of Treatment (EOT) visit (EOT is defined as: requires alternative antifungal, sufficient improvement of surgical condition, confirmed fungal infection or death)
- End of Study visit (28 days after the EOT visit)
- Long-term Follow up visit (90 days after the EOT visit)
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of micafungin administered to neonates suffering from systemic candidiasis. This study will also evaluate the p...
Neutropenia is linked to development of invasive candidiasis/candidaemia, for which micafungin has demonstrated efficacy, but evidence in patients with neutropenia is limited.
Micafungin is used off-label in the United States to treat invasive candidiasis in neonates. We used an established pharmacokinetic model to determine micafungin exposures for 46 courses in 39 hospita...
Micafungin has a distinct advantage for antifungal prophylaxis in HSCT owing to its better safety profile, specifically in terms of hepatic and renal toxicity. In children, prophylactic micafungin is ...
Few studies have assessed the efficacy and safety of micafungin in patients with proven or probable invasive aspergillosis (IA). This was the aim of the current study, which was conducted in 22 hospit...
Guidelines on treating invasive candidiasis recommend initial treatment with a broad-spectrum echinocandin (e.g., micafungin); then switching to fluconazole if isolates prove sensitive (de-escalation ...
