#9 Clinical Trend: Candidiasis

A new drug is likely responsible for the increase in searches for this term. Viamet Pharmaceuticals announced that the drug VT-1161 has begun phase 2b clinical testing for treatment of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis. Having shown efficacy as an antifungal and a favorable safety profile, the drug may soon be available to treat the 5-8% of women in their child-bearing years who experience recurrent episodes of acute vulvovaginal candidiasis.
