Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Consenting adult participants with proven, probable or possible invasive aspergillosis and renally impaired (RI) or of participants with invasive fungal disease (IFD) caused by rare moulds, yeasts or dimorphic fungi meeting the inclusion and none of the exclusion criteria were considered for entry into the study.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Analysis and interpretation of the results was pathogen dependent and each pathogen was quite rare, therefore it was not feasible to enroll a sufficient number of participants in a randomized controlled trial to power the study adequately to allow statistical comparisons.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Isavuconazole Participants received a loading dose of isavuconazole, 200 mg three times a day administered intravenously (IV) or orally (PO) [or per os (PO)] for the first 2 days followed by a maintenance dose from Day 3 of 200 mg once daily either IV or orally until they reached a treatment endpoint or for a maximum of 180 days; with an option for extended treatment under specified criteria.

[1] T-cell immunosuppressant use was defined as yes for patients who noted treatment with other recognized T-cell immunosuppressants among the list of host factors on the categorization of IFD eCRF. Along with the investigators’ assessment, participants who took certain prior medications could have been considered based on the medical evaluation. T-cell immunosuppressant use was defined as no for participants who completed the categorization of IFD eCRF and did not meet the criterion in the previous sentences. Otherwise, T-cell immunosuppressant use was missing.

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Enrollment in the clinical study was suspended in January 2009 pending further characterization of newly identified impurities. After successful study completion resumption of enrollment started in April 2011 for the 9766-CL-0103/WSA-CS-003 study.
