Galactomannan (GM) detection in biological samples has been shown to predict therapeutic response by azoles and polyenes. In a murine invasive pulmonary aspergillosis model, fosmanogepix or posaconazole treatment resulted in an ∼6- to 7-log reduction in conidial equivalents (CE)/g lung tissue after 96 h versus placebo. Changes in GM levels in BAL fluid and serum mirrored reductions in lung CE, with significant decreases seen after 96 h or 72 h for fosmanogepix or posaconazole, respectively (P < 0.02).
