Brief Summary:
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

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Invasive Aspergillosis Drug: Micafungin Drug: Systemic antifungal therapy Phase 2

Detailed Description:

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)

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 17 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
