Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC), also known as recurrent yeast infections, is defined as at least 3 episodes of acute VVC in the past 12 months. Several properties of VT-1161 suggest it might be a safer and more effective treatment of RVVC than other oral antifungal medications.
This study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of VT-1161 for the treatment of acute VVC episodes in patients with RVVC and consists of 2 parts. The first part of the study is a 2-week period for the treatment of the patient's current VVC episode when the patient will take either fluconazole or VT-1161 (according to a random assignment). The second part consists of 11 weeks, when the patient will take either VT-1161 or a placebo (according to the random assignment from the first part of the study), and then a 37 week follow-up period.

- Percentage of subjects with one or more culture-verified acute VVC episodes [ Time Frame: 50 Weeks ]
An acute VVC episode (considered a recurrent episode) is defined as a positive culture for Candida species and a clinical signs and symptoms score of ≥3.
Outcome measure includes subjects who failed clearing their initial acute VVC episode during Part 1.
- Percentage of subjects with resolved acute VVC episodes during Part 1 [ Time Frame: 14 Days ]Resolution of the acute VVC episode is defined as a clinical signs and symptoms score of <3 at Day 14.
