Invasive Candidiasis clinical trials at UCSF
3 in progress, 2 open to new patients

  • BIOPIC: Fungal Biomarkers for Diagnosis and Response to Therapy for Pediatric Candidemia

    open to eligible people ages up to 18 years

    The purpose of the study is to 1) define the operating characteristics of fungal biomarker assays in pediatric patients at high-risk for developing invasive candidiasis, 2) determine the change in fungal biomarker assay results in children who develop invasive candidiasis, and 3) create a biobank of blood samples from pediatric patients at high-risk for invasive candidiasis and those with invasive candidiasis for future testing of fungal biomarker assays and development of new fungal biomarker assays. The study will assemble a prospective cohort of pediatric patients at high-risk for developing invasive candidiasis. Blood samples for biomarker testing will be obtained at the time a patient has a clinical indication for blood culture attainment. Additional blood sampling will be performed on the sub-set of patients that are found to have invasive candidiasis. The sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV of biomarker assays will be determined for each biomarker assay. No PHI will be stored in the database and limits on blood draws (3 ml/kg in an 8 week period) will be adhered to.

  • PEACE: Pediatric Antifungal Comparative Effectiveness

    open to eligible people ages up to 18 years

    The overarching objective is to develop new evidence-based treatment guidelines for invasive fungal diseases in children. To accomplish that, this protocol will focus on two specific aims: 1) Compare the effectiveness of echinocandin versus amphotericin B or triazole antifungal therapy for pediatric invasive candidiasis and for the subset of patients with invasive candidemia; 2) Characterize the incidence rate of inpatient pediatric invasive candidiasis per hospital admissions.

  • Study To Assess Pharmacokinetics, Safety & Efficacy of Anidulafungin When Treating Children With Invasive Candidiasis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Prospective, open label study to assess the pharmacokinetics, safety & efficacy of anidulafungin when used to treat children (aged 1 month - <18 years) with invasive candidiasis, including candidemia (ICC).
