|Caspofungin also known as Cancidas is a lipopeptide antifungal drug manufactured by Merck. It is a part of a new class of antifungals known the echinocandins. It works by inhibiting the enzyme (1→3)-β-D-glucan synthase and thereby disturbing the integrity of the fungal cell wall. Caspofungin was the first inhibitor of fungal (1→3)-β-D-glucan synthesis to be approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Caspofungin is administered intravenously.

Cancidas is the first in a new class of antifungals, called echinocandins, to be introduced in more than a decade. This medication is approved for the intravenous treatment of invasive aspergillosis in patients who have not responded to standard antifungal therapies.
Aspergillosis is a life-threatening fungal infection most commonly seen in cancer patients, organ and bone marrow transplant recipients, and HIV/AIDS patients. It affects the lungs and can spread through the bloodstream to other parts of the body. Mortality rates in those with severe aspergillosis range from 50 to 90 percent.
