*The VITAL study is the first trial to show the efficacy and safety of CRESEMBA for the treatment of mucormycosis, either when given for primary treatment, for refractory disease, or as an alternative in patients intolerant to amphotericin B.
Mucormycosis is an extremely rare disease which means that recruiting the numbers of patients needed for randomised controlled trials is impractical. For these reasons, the VITAL study was designed as an open-label, uncontrolled trial. To put the all-cause mortality rates and overall response rates from VITAL into context, the US FDA and the European EMA CHMP requested additional analyses in the context of external control data. As a result, a matched case-control analysis using contemporaneous controls from the FungiScope database was also performed. This case-control analysis showed CRESEMBA has similar efficacy compared with primary amphotericin B-based treatment.
