Save Brexafemme and Solosec as a Last Resort for Vaginal Infections
New meds and indications will lead to questions about how to treat vaginal infections.
Brexafemme (ibrexafungerp) will be touted as an oral, one-day med that is fungicidal against Candida...versus azoles, which are fungistatic.
But it doesn’t seem to work better than vaginal azoles (clotrimazole, etc) or oral fluconazole...the first-line meds for uncomplicated candidiasis. These are effective in 80% to 90% of cases.
