SCYNEXIS is developing ibrexafungerp (formerly SCY-078) for the treatment of multiple serious fungal infections, including vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC), invasive candidiasis (IC), invasive aspergillosis (IA) and refractory invasive fungal infections. Ibrexafungerp is the first representative of a novel class of structurally distinct glucan synthase inhibitors, triterpenoids. It has demonstrated broad spectrum antifungal activity in vitro and in vivo against multidrug-resistant pathogens, including azole- and echinocandin-resistant strains. Ibrexafungerp also demonstrated high clinical cure and mycological eradication rates in a Phase 2b dose-finding study (the DOVE study) evaluating the oral formulation of the agent for the treatment of VVC. The FDA has granted QIDP and Fast Track designations for both the oral and intravenous formulations of ibrexafungerp for the indications of IC (including candidemia), IA and VVC, and has granted Orphan Drug Designation for the IC and IA indications.
