ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00002041
First received: November 2, 1999
Last updated: October 1, 2007
Last verified: October 2007
  Purpose

To determine the appropriate duration of amphotericin B therapy for Candida esophagitis. To compare the effectiveness of two different amphotericin B doses in the treatment of biopsy-proven Candida esophagitis. To determine if low-dose amphotericin B is less toxic than standard dose therapy during a limited treatment period. To evaluate pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters of the two different dosing regimens.

Co-existing Condition:

Patients with histological or clinical (skin rash, cotton wool exudates, Candida endophthalmitis, etc.) evidence of disseminated candidiasis are excluded.

Concurrent Medication:

Excluded:

  • Systemic administration of amphotericin B for a proven or suspected systemic fungal infection.

Patients with the following are excluded:

  • Documented Candida fungemia.
  • Histological or clinical (skin rash, cotton wool exudates, Candida endophthalmitis, etc.) evidence of disseminated candidiasis.
  • Systemic administration of amphotericin B for a proven or suspected systemic fungal infection.
  • Patient refusal to enter study.

Patient must be an immunosuppressed host, with biopsy-proven Candida esophagitis.

  • Patients with polymicrobial esophagitis will be included as long as Candida esophagitis is documented by esophageal biopsy.
  • Informed consent must be signed and obtained.
