  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate the intra-saliva penetration of voriconazole in different subpopulations. The goal is to develop, optimize and validate an easy, non-invasive and painless procedure for Therapeutic Drud Monitoring of voriconazole that can be used in children, ambulatory patients and in patients in whom blood drawing is difficult.
