2014-07-23 21:09:06 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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)

Efficacy of micafungin for treatment of invasive candidiasis and candidaemia in patients with neutropenia.

Neutropenia is linked to development of invasive candidiasis/candidaemia, for which micafungin has demonstrated efficacy, but evidence in patients with neutropenia is limited.

Safety, Effectiveness, and Exposure-Response of Micafungin in Infants: Application of an Established Pharmacokinetics Model to Electronic Health Records.

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 antifungal prophylaxis in children undergoing HSCT: can we give higher doses, less frequently? A pharmacokinetic study.

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 ...

Efficacy and safety of micafungin for the treatment of patients with proven or probable invasive aspergillosis: A non-comparative, multicenter, phase IV, open-label study.

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...

Cost-effectiveness of de-escalation from micafungin versus escalation from fluconazole for invasive candidiasis in China.
