Vaginal yeast infections that never fully go away can be frustrating - not to mention uncomfortable. We are testing an oral investigational drug to see if it can prevent infections from returning.
If you volunteer and qualify, you will initially receive oral fluconazole, an FDA- approved treatment for yeast infections. Depending on how you respond, you will EITHER be enrolled in the Main study or a Sub-study. You will then get the test drug or placebo. Total participation in the Main study will be up to 38 weeks; the Sub study will last about 4 weeks.
Most women will get a vaginal yeast infection at some point in their life. Symptoms of vaginal yeast infections include burning, itching, and thick, white discharge. Yeast infections are easy to treat, but it is important to see your doctor or nurse if you think you have an infection. Yeast infection symptoms are similar to other vaginal infections and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you have a more serious infection, and not a yeast infection, it can lead to major health problems.
