Micafungin Salvage Mono-therapy in Invasive Aspergillosis
A Phase II, Multicenter, Randomized, Open-label, Active Controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Micafungin Salvage Mono-therapy Versus Active Control Intravenous Salvage Mono-therapy in Patients With Invasive Aspergillosis

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of micafungin in patients with proven invasive aspergillosis and who are refractory or intolerant to previous systemic antifungal therapy. To compare the efficacy and safety of the micafungin therapy with the active control arm

This is a phase II, multicentre, prospective, active-controlled, open-label, 2:1 randomised and parallel group clinical study.

Patients will be stratified according to the baseline infection status and the baseline neutropenic status:

  • Intolerant to previous antifungal therapy
  • Refractory to previous antifungal therapy; progression of infection
  • Refractory to previous antifungal therapy; failure to improve In case, criteria for both intolerant and refractory are fulfilled at the same time the patient will be considered as refractory.
  • Neutropenic (absolute neutrophil count (ANC < 500 cells/mm3)
  • Non neutropenic (ANC >= 500 cells/mm3)
