Study To Assess The Safety, Pharmacokinetics, And Evaluate The Response To Anidulafungin When Treating Children With Invasive Candidiasis
Anidulafungin (an antifungal drug) is relatively safe and the benefits outweigh the potential adverse effects when used in children diagnosed with invasive candidiasis, including candidemia.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Prospective, Open-Label Study To Assess The Pharmacokinetics, Safety & Efficacy Of Anidulafungin When Used To Treat Children With Invasive Candidiasis, Including Candidaemia|
- To assess the safety and tolerability of anidulafungin when used to treat children with invasive candidiasis, including candidemia. [ Time Frame: Duration of the trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- To assess rates of relapse at the Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits [ Time Frame: Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- To assess all-cause mortality at the EOIVT and EOT time points [ Time Frame: EOIVT and EOT ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- To explore pharmacokinetic parameters of anidulafungin in children aged 1 month to <2 years following IV infusion of anidulafungin (area under curve over dosing interval (AUC24) and peak concentration (Cmax)); [ Time Frame: Initial few months of the trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To assess the efficacy of anidulafungin, as measured by global response, at the following time points: EOIVT, EOT, 2-week FU visit and 6-week FU visit [ Time Frame: At the end of treatment and follow up visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To explore the exposure-response (safety and efficacy endpoints) relationship of anidulafungin using a nonlinear mixed effects approach as appropriate, including exploring the association between PK-PD index (eg, AUC/MIC) and efficacy endpoints; [ Time Frame: Duration of the trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To assess rates of emerging infection at the Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits [ Time Frame: Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2009|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||November 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Subjects with documented or highly suspected candida infection will be initiated on therapy. Subjects enrolled on the basis of high suspicion of candida infection are required to have confirmation of candida infection within 96 hours post treatment initiation. Subjects failing to confirm within this time period may be discontinued from study treatment, but will remain in the study for safety follow-up evaluations.
Day 1: loading dose of 3 mg/kg (not to exceed 200 mg) Day 2 onwards: maintain a dose of 1.5 mg/kg (not to exceed 100 mg). Minimum total treatment duration is 14 days. Minimum IV anidulafungin treatment duration is 10 days; followed by oral fluconazole 6-12 mg/kg/day (not to exceed 800mg/day).
Maximum treatment duration with anidulafungin is 35 days. Maximum follow up duration is 6 weeks after the end of treatment.
Other Name: EraxisDrug: fluconazole
Minimum IV anidulafungin treatment duration is 10 days; followed by oral fluconazole 6-12 mg/kg/day (not to exceed 800mg/day). Switch of treatment to fluconazole may only occur after:
