AIDS Treatment Update, No. 44, August 1996

A single 200 mg dose of the anti-fungal fluconazole each week effectively reduces the occurrence of oral and vaginal Candida in HIV-positive women, according to an American study which enrolled 323 women with CD4 counts below 300. Taking fluconazole prophylaxis did not appear to increase the risk of developing fluconazole-resistant strains of Candida (Tu.B.411).
