Brief Summary:

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 that it might be a safer and more effective treatment for RVVC than other oral antifungal medicines.

This study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of VT-1161 for the treatment of 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 with 3 150mg doses of fluconazole. The 2nd part consists of 12 weeks, when the patient will take either VT-1161 150 mg or a placebo (according to a random assignment), and then a 36-week follow-up period.

This study is identical to VMT-VT-1161-CL-012.
