Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of the Combination Therapy of Ibrexafungerp (SCY-078) With Voriconazole in Patients With Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis (SCYNERGIA)
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, two-arm study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy and PK of the combination therapy of SCY-078 plus voriconazole compared to those of voriconazole monotherapy in male and female subjects 18 years of age and older with a hematological malignancy (HM) or a myelodysplastic syndrome or aplastic anemia or hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) and a probable or proven invasive pulmonary aspergillosis based on EORTCMSG criteria. In addition, all subjects must be positive ( ≥0.5) for serum GMI. (Source: The Aspergillus Website - updates)

Researchers' breakthrough in tackling challenge of antifungal resistance
(Swansea University) Ground-breaking work by university experts in Tennessee, Texas and Swansea is helping develop a better understanding of the growing threat posed by antifungal drug resistance. Invasive aspergillosis is a devastating disease caused by breathing in small airborne spores of the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus and it is a condition where drug resistance has been encountered. They have just released a paper revealing how they have been able to identify a previously uncharacterized genetic mutation in clinical isolates that leads to resistance.
