This phase II study will be conducted to:
- evaluate the pharmacokinetics, safety, tolerance, and efficacy of different dosing schedules of Posaconazole in immunocompromised hosts with a variety of refractory invasive fungal infections or in subjects who require empiric antifungal therapy and
- identify the dosing schedule that provides the most consistent therapeutic drug exposure in this patient population.
