Description
We invite you to take part in this research study because your doctor has confirmed, or suspects, that you may have an invasive fungal infection (IFI). An IFI is a severe, life-threatening infection caused by a fungus. This study hopes to learn more about how well the investigational study drug, F901318 (also known as olorofim), is tolerated. We also hope to learn how safe it is for people with invasive fungal infections that have not improved with existing antifungal therapy. The study will also look at how the body processes the study drug (known as “pharmacokinetics”).

The study drug is an experimental or investigational drug. This means the FDA has not approved it for treating IFI.

The experimental study drug is an antifungal medication. It has been developed to treat serious fungal infections. It works by stopping a certain enzyme (protein) that is involved in the process of how fungi develop.

Schedule
Study duration and period
The length of your participation in the study will depend on how your infection responds to the study drug. The maximum duration of participation is expected to be just over 18 weeks (about 4 months). You will have up to 19 study visits during the study. If your infection clears up during the treatment period, your participation will be shorter and you will have fewer study visits.
