Abstract

Anidulafungin was found to be non-inferior to and possibly more efficacious than fluconazole for treatment of invasive candidiasis (IC) in a major randomized clinical trial (RCT). There are no data comparing the cost-effectiveness between azoles and echinocandins in treating IC. This economic analysis investigated the cost-effectiveness of anidulafungin compared with fluconazole for treatment of IC in an Australian setting.
