  Purpose
To collect and summarize information on the diagnosis, management, and clinical and mycological outcomes of patients with systemic fungal infections in order to better understand the effectiveness of antifungals in the treatment of Systemic Fungal Infections (SFI) in India.

Condition Intervention
Systemic Fungal Infections Drug: voriconazole

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: An Observational Study Of Patients Receiving Therapy For Systemic Fungal Infections

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Diagnosis of Systemic Fungal Infection (SFI) [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]
    Evidence of clinical signs and symptoms of systemic fungal infection including: fever, hypotension, or radiological or microbiological evidence, as assessed by the investigator.

  • Management of SFI: Choice of Treatment [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]
    Number of participants treated with each antifungal therapy. Each participant may have recieved 1 or more treatments as deemed clinically necessary by the investigator.

  • Management of SFI: Reason for Selection of Antifungal Agent [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]
    Number of participants with reason for investigator's selection of particular antifungal therapy.

  • Total Daily Dose for Selected Antifungal Agent [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]
  • Number of Participants With Clinical Outcomes. [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]

    Clinical outcomes, as assessed by the investigator, defined as:

    Cured: clinical signs and symptoms of fungal infection absent. Improved: clinical signs and symptoms of fungal infection improved. Stable: no change in overall clinical findings, compared with previous reporting period.

    Deteriorated: clinical signs and symptoms of fungal infection worsened (including death).

    Indeterminate; clinical signs and symptoms of fungal infection were insufficient to make an evaluation.


  • Number of Participants With Mycological Outcomes [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]

    Mycological outcome of persistence (continued presence of fungi on microbiology despite therapy), eradication (absence of fungi after therapy

    ), or unknown (results are not available/not known) as assessed by the Investigator/Physician.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Concomitant Medications [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]
  • Median Duration of Antifungal Therapy [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]
  • Medication Administration [ Time Frame: Up to 9 months ]
    Participants who received medication by IV or oral administration, reported by total number of participants receiving IV and total number of participants receiving oral administation (overall), and by total number of participants receiving voriconazole only by IV or oral administration.


Enrollment: 23
Study Start Date: April 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1 Drug: voriconazole
Patients must have received (in the Intensive Care Unit [ICU] at study entry) at least 1 day therapy with systemic antifungal agent for treatment of a proven or suspected fungal infection. The decision regarding choice of antifungal agent would lie with the treating physician and will necessarily precede and be independent of the decision to enroll a patient into the study.
