Here you can find the FDA press release
While the aspergillosis indication is based on a large, well-designed randomized clinical trial, the mucormycosis indication is based single arm study results compared to literature data and a comparison with results from the ECMM FungiScope registry. For ECMM this is a unprecedented success in this area.
