FDA Grants Astellas Qualified Infectious Disease Product Designation for Isavuconazole for the Treatment of Invasive Aspergillosis
Date:12/3/2013

. Isavuconazole demonstrated non-inferiority versus voriconazole. Isavuconazole was effective as determined by the primary endpoint of all-cause mortality through day 42 in the intent-to-treat population (N=516). Study drug-related adverse events were reported in 42.4% of the isavuconazole and 59.8% of the voriconazole treatment group. Overall drug- and non-drug-related adverse events were reported in 96.1% and 98.5% of patients in the isavuconazole and voriconazole treatment groups, respectively.

The VITAL study is an open-label phase 3 study including patients with invasive fungal disease caused by emerging fungal pathogens such as Zygomycetes and patients with aspergillosis and pre-existing renal impairment. Enrollment into VITAL has been completed (N=150). Based on the investigator reported data, approximately 45 patients were enrolled with zygomycosis and a similar number of patients were enrolled with pre-existing renal impairment. Review of diagnosis and outcomes by an Independent Data Review Committee is ongoing.

The phase 3 ACTIVE study is a randomized, double-blind study evaluating the use of isavuconazole i.v. and oral versus caspofungin i.v. followed by oral voriconazole for the treatment of invasive Candida infections. The ACTIVE study continues to recruit with anticipated completion of enrollment in the first part of 2015.
