What is Eraxis?
Eraxis is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer Inc. Eraxis is an echinocandin antifungal therapy indicated for the treatment of the following fungal infections:
- Candidemia and other forms of Candida infections (intra-abdominal abscess and peritonitis) in adults and pediatric patients (1 month of age and older)
- Esophageal candidiasis in adults
Eraxis has not been studied in adult and pediatric patients with endocarditis, osteomyelitis, and meningitis due to Candida or insufficient numbers of neutropenic patients. The dosage of Eraxis for the treatment of Candida dissemination into the CNS and the eye has not been established. Eraxis is associated with high relapse rates in esophageal candidiasis.
What doses of Eraxis are available?
Eraxis is available in injection form, in the following doses: 50 mg, and 100 mg as a lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial for reconstitution.
Eraxis for injection requires reconstitution with diluent Sterile Water for Injection and subsequent dilution with either 5% Dextrose Injection, USP or 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP (normal saline). Eraxis reconstituted solution can be stored at 25°C (77°F) for up to 24 hours prior to dilution into the infusion solution.
The recommended dose is a single 200 mg loading dose on Day 1, followed by a 100 mg once daily maintenance dose thereafter. Dosage adjustments are not required for geriatric patients or for patients with hepatic or renal insufficiency.
Please read the prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Eraxis active ingredients
Eraxis contains anidulafungin, a semisynthetic echinocandin with antifungal activity. Anidulafungin’s mechanism of action is to inhibit glucan synthase, an enzyme present in fungal, but not mammalian cells. This results in inhibition of the formation of 1,3-β-D-glucan, a vital part of the fungal cell wall.
Eraxis side effects
The most common side effects of Eraxis in clinical trials include:
- Candidemia and other forms of Candida infections
- Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, pyrexia
- Constipation, abdominal pain
- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) increased
- Hypoglycemia, epistaxis, and rash
In rare instances, Eraxis can cause more serious adverse events. These can include:
- Anaphylactic and hypersensitivity reactions
- Hepatic effects – abnormal liver function tests, hepatitis, hepatic failure
- Risk of infusion-related adverse reactions, possibly histamine-mediated, including rash, urticaria, flushing, pruritus, bronchospasm, dyspnea, and hypotension
- Risk of neonatal toxicity associated with polysorbates
- Hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI)
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Eraxis against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Eraxis to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
Eraxis drug interactions
Administration of multiple doses of anidulafungin and cyclosporine, voriconazole, tacrolimus, rifampin, or liposomal amphotericin B to healthy subjects resulted in no significant alteration in the steady state pharmacokinetics of either drug. No dosage adjustment of either drug is needed when the two drugs are co-administered.
You should not use Eraxis if you:
- Are allergic to the active ingredient anidulafungin
- Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Eraxis
