Item Code: Cancidas
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.
Available in 50 & 70 mg dosage
