Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC), also known as recurrent yeast infections, is defined as at least 3 episodes of acute vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) in the past 12 months. Several properties of oteseconazole (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 oteseconazole (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 induction phase for the treatment of the patient's current VVC episode when the patient will take either fluconazole or oteseconazole (VT-1161) according to a random assignment. The second part consists of an 11-week maintenance phase, when the patient will take either oteseconazole (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 1 or More Culture-verified Acute VVC Episodes During the Maintenance Phase of the Study in the Intent-to-treat (ITT) Population [ Time Frame: 48 Weeks ]
The primary efficacy outcome measure was the percentage of subjects with 1 or more culture-verified acute VVC episodes during the maintenance phase (post-randomization through Week 48) in the intent-to-treat population, which includes subjects who failed to clear their initial acute VVC episode during the induction phase. An acute VVC episode during the maintenance phase (considered a recurrent episode) was defined as a positive fungal culture for Candida species and a clinical signs and symptoms score of ≥3. To calculate the signs and symptoms score, each vulvovaginal sign (erythema, edema, excoriation) and symptom (itching, burning, irritation) was scored using the following scale, with a higher score indicating a worse outcome.
0 = none (complete absence of any sign or symptom), 1 = mild (slight), 2 = moderate (definitely present), 3 = severe (marked, intense)
