Detailed Description:

To support anidulafungin NDA in China Due to the challenges in subject recruitment resulting in protracted study course, Pfizer Inc. has decided to terminate trial A8851023 prematurely based on the recommendation by the senior management team on November 8, 2011. The decision to terminate the trial was not based on any safety concerns. All investigators were verbally informed by the study team since November 8, 2011 to stop the subject recruitment as soon as possible. All 17 enrolled subjects have been followed up on safety issues and no safety concerns were present by the data of these subjects.
