Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Categorical Clinical Response: Cure, Improvement, Failure, or Unevaluable [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical response defined as: Cure=resolution of all baseline signs and symptoms of fungal infection(s); Improvement=lessening of baseline signs and symptoms or absence of one or more, but not all baseline findings; Failure=no improvement or deterioration of baseline condition; Unevaluable=incomplete therapy (efficacy could not be evaluated or discontinuation was not followed up).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Cultivated Strain Mycological Response: Eradication, Persistence, Superinfection, or Not Evaluable [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    In case cultivation performed, cultivated strain before and after Vfend administration recorded, and the improvement of mycological outcomes after administration evaluated. Mycological response defined as: Eradication=absence of signs and symptoms of fungal infection; Persistence=(no eradication) presence of fungal infection; Superinfection=existence of different strains from strains separated prior to study medication; Not evaluable=a follow-up mycological cultivation is not performed.
