Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Absence rate of IFDs assessed by physical examination and serum galactomannan test [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]

Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Micafungin Drug: micafungin
Eligible patients who provided informed consent form will be administered micafungin at 50 mg/day (1mg/kg/day for patients weighting <50kg) as 1-h infusion. Infusion of Micafungin will be started on the day -2 of the conditioning course of autologous stem cell transplantation
Other Names:
  • Micafungin sodium
  • Mycamine

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate absence of proven, probable, possible, suspected invasive fungal disease (IFDs) through the end of prophylaxis therapy and during 4 weeks after stopping of micafungin prophylaxis after Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in pediatric and adolescent neutropenia patients. Patients will receive micafungin until the earliest of the following: 1) neutrophil engraftment; 2) development of proven, provable, possible or suspected invasive fungal disease; 3) development of unacceptable drug toxicity; 4) withdrawal from study participation or discontinuation of study treatment. Safety profile of micafungin is also evaluated.
