Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2003
Detailed Description:

This study is designed to determine the safety, tolerance and efficacy of POZ used as prophylaxis of IFI in high-risk subjects with Grade II-IV acute graft vs. host disease (GVHD) or extensive chronic GVHD. The primary objective is to assess the efficacy of SCH56592 vs fluconazole in preventing proven or probable IFI within the time period from randomization to 16 weeks after the start of treatment with study drug.


Ages Eligible for Study:   13 Years to 65 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Hematopoietic progenitor cell transplant subjects with chronic or Grade II-IV acute GVHD being treated with high dose immunosuppressive therapy.
  • One of the following to the subject's prior immunosuppressive regimen:

    1. at least 1mg per kg per day of methylprednisolone or equivalent,
    2. Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) for the therapy of acute GVHD,
    3. Tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, or other steroid-sparing immunosuppressive regimen.
