  Fungal Diseases+ 

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

The Bacteriology and Mycology Branch, Division of Microbiology and

Infectious Diseases of the National Institute of Allergy and

Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has a requirement for a collaborative

clinical trials group for serious fungal infections to include those

caused by Candida, Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, Coccidioides,

Histoplasma, and Blastomyces.  A clinical trials program will be

designed to facilitate advances in antifungal therapy by rigorously

determining the efficacy and safety of new therapeutic regimens for

serious mycotic diseases.  The program will be driven by a scientific

agenda with proposed studies that will address the most important

gaps in treatment, the appropriate fungal pathogens and risk groups.

Risk groups of emphasis are HIV infected patients, neutropenic cancer

patients, bone marrow and organ transplant patients, and surgical

trauma patients.  Provision should also be made for the key

management problems with the endemic mycoses in immunocompetent


This group will conduct Phase II and Phase III clinical trials to

evaluate antifungal therapies including, but not limited to new

agents, formulations, dosing regimens, drug combinations, as well as

immunebased therapeutics.
