Study Of The Pharmacokinetics And Safety Of Voriconazole In Children 2 To Less Than 15 Years Old Who Are At High Risk For Systemic Fungal Infection
An Open-Label, Non-Controlled, Multicenter, Intravenous To Oral Switch, Phase 2 Study To Evaluate The Pharmacokinetics, Safety And Tolerability Of Voriconazole In Immunocompromised Children Aged 2 To Less Than 15 Years Who Are At High Risk For Systemic Fungal Infection
In this study we will measure the concentration of the drug called voriconazole which is used to fight infections caused by fungus in children who usually are cancer patients and have their immune system down. Since we know the dose in adults, and we think we know the matching doses in the young patients ages 2 to less than 15 years old, we will compare the amount of drug that goes into the system with what we know works in adults. We give the drug by a needle directly into the blood, then few days later we stop that and give the drug by mouth. Meanwhile, we draw a little bit of blood at certain times to measure the drug in it.

Interventional
Phase 2
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Aspergillosis, Aspergilloma
  • Drug: Voriconazole

    Study Days 1: IV voriconazole 9 mg/kg q12h. Study Days 2 to 7: IV voriconazole 8 mg/kg q12h. Study Days 8 to 14: Oral voriconazole (POS) 9 mg/kg q12h with a maximum of 350 mg q12 h.

    Notes:

    If unable to switch to oral medication on Day 8, subjects can continue with IV treatment up to Day 20 before switching to oral dose.

    Only morning oral dose will be given on Day 14 (or the seventh day of oral dosing if IV regimen is extended). However, if clinically indicated, voriconazole treatment may be continued up to Day 30.

    (IV = Intravenous; POS = Powder for oral suspension)

    Other Name: UK-109,496; Vfend; Voriconazole
  • Drug: Voriconazole

    Study Days 1: IV voriconazole 6 mg/kg q12h. Study Days 2 to 7: IV voriconazole 4 mg/kg q12h. Study Days 8 to 14: Oral voriconazole (POS) 200 mg q12h.

    Notes:

    If unable to switch to oral medication on Day 8, subjects can continue with IV treatment up to Day 20 before switching to oral dose.

    Only morning oral dose will be given on Day 14 (or the seventh day of oral dosing if IV regimen is extended). However, if clinically indicated, voriconazole treatment may be continued up to Day 30.
