Prospective, open label study to assess the pharmacokinetics, safety & efficacy of anidulafungin when used to treat children (aged 1 month - <18 years) with invasive candidiasis, including candidemia (ICC).
||Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Prospective, Open-label Study To Assess The Pharmacokinetics, Safety & Efficacy Of Anidulafungin When Used To Treat Children With Invasive Candidiasis, Including Candidemia
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To assess the safety and tolerability of anidulafungin when used to treat children with invasive candidiasis, including candidemia. [ Time Frame: Duration of the trial ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- To assess rates of relapse at the Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits [ Time Frame: Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits ]
- To assess all-cause mortality during study therapy and follow-up visits [ Time Frame: EOIVT, EOT, Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits ]
- To explore pharmacokinetic parameters of anidulafungin in children aged 1 month to <2 years following IV infusion of anidulafungin (area under curve over dosing interval (AUC24) and peak concentration (Cmax)); [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Day 2 ]
- To assess the efficacy of anidulafungin, as measured by global response, at the following time points: EOIVT, EOT, 2-week FU visit and 6-week FU visit [ Time Frame: EOIVT, EOT, Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits ]
- To explore the exposure-response (safety and efficacy endpoints) relationship of anidulafungin using a nonlinear mixed effects approach as appropriate, including exploring the association between PK-PD index (eg, AUC/MIC) and efficacy endpoints; [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Day 9, at specified collection time points ]
- To assess rates of new infection at the Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits [ Time Frame: Week 2 and Week 6 FU visits ]
- • To explore pharmacokinetic parameters of polysorbate 80 following IV infusion of anidulafungin (AUC24 and Cmax) [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Day 9, at specified collection times ]

Experimental: Anidulafungin IV
All subjects meeting screening criteria will receive IV anidulafungin.
Day 1: loading dose of 3 mg/kg (not to exceed 200 mg) Day 2 onwards: maintain a dose of 1.5 mg/kg (not to exceed 100 mg). Minimum total treatment duration is 14 days. Minimum IV anidulafungin treatment duration is 10 days for subjects with microbiologically confirmed ICC and 5 days for subjects at risk of candidiasis; followed by oral fluconazole 6-12 mg/kg/day (not to exceed 800mg/day).
Maximum treatment duration with anidulafungin is 35 days.
Other Name: Eraxis
Subjects may be switched to oral fluconazole [6-12 mg/kg/day (not to exceed 800mg/day] provided they meet specified criteria. Maximum total treatment duration is 49 days.
Other Name: Diflucan
Prospective, open label study to assess the pharmacokinetics, safety & efficacy of anidulafungin when used to treat children (aged 1 month - < 18 years) with invasive candidiasis, including candidemia (ICC). To participate in the study, at the time of enrollment subjects must (1) have either a confirmed diagnosis of ICC or mycological evidence highly suggestive of Candida sp or (2) in infants 1 month to < 2 years only, be at high risk of candidiasis. All subjects meeting screening criteria receive IV anidulafungin. Subjects will be stratified by age (1 month - < 2 years; 2 years - < 5 years; 5 years - < 18 years). Subjects may be switched to oral fluconazole, provided that the pre-specified criteria are met. Subjects with microbiologically confirmed ICC must have a minimum total treatment duration of 14 days. The maximum allowed treatment duration of anidulafungin is 35 days; the maximum total treatment duration for the study is 49 days. At selected centers, anidulafungin pharmacokinetics will be assessed in the first 6 subjects age 1 month - < 2 years to confirm the recommended dosage regimen. A population PK-PD analysis will be performed in all other enrolled subjects. Subjects will be followed for safety through 6 week FU visit. Efficacy for subjects with confirmed ICC will be assessed at EOIVT, EOT, 2-week FU and 6-week FU visits.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
