Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Fungal free survival [ Time Frame: One week following the last dose of study drug (maximum of 49 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Defined as alive at one week following the last dose of study drug and eradication (fungal free) with no requirement for alternative systemic antifungal therapy for continued treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to mycological clearance of invasive candidiasis [ Time Frame: 30 days following the last dose of study drug (maximum of 72 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Fungal free survival in infants with end-organ dissemination at end of study drug therapy [ Time Frame: maximum of 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Fungal free survival in infants with end-organ dissemination one week after last dose of study drug [ Time Frame: maximum of 49 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall incidence of emergent fungal infections through the end of study [ Time Frame: 30 days following the last dose of study drug (maximum of 72 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall incidence of recurrent fungal infections through the end of study [ Time Frame: 30 days following the last dose of study drug (maximum of 72 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to positive clinical response (complete or partial) [ Time Frame: 30 days following the last dose of study drug (maximum of 72 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical response (complete, partial, stabilization, progression) at the end of study drug therapy [ Time Frame: maximum of 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical response (complete, partial, stabilization, progression) one week after last dose of study drug [ Time Frame: maximum of 49 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mycological response at end of study drug therapy [ Time Frame: maximum of 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Based on eradication and persistence

  • Mycological response one week after last dose of study drug [ Time Frame: maximum of 49 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Status of follow-up imaging and exams (improved, stable, worse) for infants with end-organ assessments [ Time Frame: 30 days following the last dose of study drug (maximum of 72 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    End-organ dissemination will be assessed through abdominal ultrasound and/or computed tomography (CT), echocardiogram, head imaging and retinal exam

  • Pharmacokinetics model parameters [ Time Frame: Day 4 up to a maximum of 42 days (3 time points) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clearance and volume of distribution
