Cancidas uses and description

Sort by popularity
Cancidas - Used for: Treating certain fungal infections.

Cancidas is an antifungal agent. It works by weakening fungal cell walls, which allows the cell contents to leak out, resulting in the death of the fungus.

Cancidas is an antibiotic that fights infections caused by fungus.

Cancidas is used to treat fungal infections that involve the stomach, lungs, esophagus, or other internal body areas.

Cancidas may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Cancidas is an antifungal drug, and belongs to a new class termed the echinocandins. It is used to treat Aspergillus and Candida infection, and works by inhibiting cell wall synthesis. Antifungals in the echinocandin class inhibit the synthesis of glucan in the cell wall, probably via the enzyme 1,3-beta glucan synthase. There is a potential for resistance development to occur, however in vitro resistance development to Cancidas by Aspergillus species has not been studied.

Indication: For the treatment of esophageal candidiasis and invasive aspergillosis in patients who are refractory to or intolerant of other therapies.

Adult and Pediatric Patients (≥12 months): Empirical therapy for presumed fungal infections (eg, Candida or Aspergillus) in febrile, neutropenic patients, whose fever has failed to respond to broad-spectrum antibiotics. Treatment of Candidemia and the following Candida Infections: Intra-abdominal abscesses, peritonitis and pleural space infections. Cancidas has not been studied in endocarditis, osteomyelitis and meningitis due to Candida. Treatment of esophageal candidiasis.
