Cancidas (can-SIGH-das), a new IV antifungal agent

You'll see patients getting Cancidas (can-SIGH-das), a new IV antifungal agent...from Merck.

Cancidas contains caspofungin acetate. It's the first of a new class of antifungals...the echinocandins.

This class works differently than current antifungals. Cancidas attacks the fungal cell wall...think of it as penicillin for fungi.
