Medication does not lower risk of fungal infection, death among ELBW infants

definite or probable invasive candidiasis in the fluconazole (3 percent) vs in the placebo group (9 percent).

"Fluconazole prophylaxis compared with placebo was not associated with a statistically significant difference in the composite primary end pointdeath or definite or probable invasive candidiasis although it was associated with a statistically significant reduction in the incidence of definite or probable candidiasis alone. This study adds new evidence regarding the efficacy of fluconazole prophylaxis, but raises the question of whether prevention of invasive candidiasis translates into substantial improvements in the outcomes of prematurity."

"Based on both the results of our study in NICUs with a low incidence of invasive candidiasis, and previous prophylaxis trials in high-incidence NICUs, the routine use of fluconazole prophylaxis should be limited to units with moderate-to-high incidence of invasive candidiasis. However, additional research is needed to precisely define the incidence at which the benefits of fluconazole prophylaxis outweigh the risks," the authors write.
