The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
 
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01122368

Brief Summary:
Subjects with intra-abdominal infection requiring surgery and Intensive Care Unit stay will be treated early with micafungin or placebo to determine the incidence and time to confirmation of fungal infection.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Mycoses Drug: micafungin Drug: placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Subjects will be assessed at the following visits:

  • Baseline (after surgery, prior to randomization)
  • End of Treatment (EOT) visit (EOT is defined as: requires alternative antifungal, sufficient improvement of surgical condition, confirmed fungal infection or death)
  • End of Study visit (28 days after the EOT visit)
  • Long-term Follow up visit (90 days after the EOT visit)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence of Invasive Fungal Infection [ Time Frame: During treatment ]
  2. Time from baseline to the first confirmation of Invasive Fungal Infection [ Time Frame: Baseline to End of Treatment visit ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence during the treatment period and the time to confirmation of the composite endpoint (defined as confirmation of Invasive Fungal Infection and/or administration of alternative anti-fungal therapy) [ Time Frame: At the EOT visit ]
  2. The emergence or persistence of fungal colonization [ Time Frame: At the EOT visit ]
  3. The level of organ dysfunction [ Time Frame: At the EOT visit ]
  4. To assess the requirement for additional abdominal surgery/intervention. [ Time Frame: At the End of Study visit ]
  5. Organ failure-free days [ Time Frame: From Day 1 until 28 days after end of study drug treatment ]
  6. Fungal-free survival [ Time Frame: From Day 1 until 28 days after end of study drug treatment ]
  7. Intensive Care Unit (ICU)-free days [ Time Frame: From Day 1 until 28 days after end of study drug treatment ]
  8. All-cause mortality [ Time Frame: At the End of Study and Long-Term Follow Up visit ]
  9. Health-related quality of life [ Time Frame: At the End of Study visit ]
  10. Assessment of the safety of micafungin when used as a pre-emptive treatment [ Time Frame: At the End of Study visit ]
