Clarify the Role of Brexafemme and Solosec 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 "eliminates" 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.
