What is Noxafil?

Noxafil (which refers to injection, delayed-release tablets, and oral suspension) and Noxafil PowderMix (for delayed-release oral suspension) are prescription medicines used in adults and children to help prevent or treat fungal infections that can spread throughout your body (invasive fungal infections).

These infections are caused by fungi called Aspergillus or Candida. Noxafil and Noxafil PowderMix are used in people who have an increased chance of getting these infections due to a weak immune system. These include people who have had a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (bone marrow transplant) with graft versus host disease or those with a low white blood cell count due to chemotherapy for blood cancers (hematologic malignancies).
