Male subjects must be vasectomized, abstain from sexual intercourse, or agree to use barrier contraception (condom with spermicide), and agree not to donate sperm while participating in the study and for 120 days from the last IV dose of study drug.

Diagnosed reduced lung function with either diffusion capacity (corrected for hemoglobin) or forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) ≤70% of predicted value, or O2 saturation ≤82% on room air. 7. Suspected or documented PCP within 2 years of screening. 8. Positive baseline serum Platelia GM EIA (≥ 0.5) and/or β-D glucan assay (Fungitell ≥80 picograms [pg]/mL or Fujifilm Wako >11 pg/mL) within 14 days of transplant. 9. Receipt of previous allogeneic BMT. 10. Planned receipt of cord blood for transplantation. 11. Planned peripheral blood or marrow autograft. 12. Not applicable to protocol Amendment 6. 13. Grade 2 or higher ataxia, tremor, motor neuropathy, or sensory neuropathy, per National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0. 14. History of severe (Grade ≥3) ataxia, neuropathy or tremors; or a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis or a movement disorder (including Parkinson's disease or Huntington's disease). 15. . . 1. Planned or ongoing intake at screening of a known severe neurotoxic medication or with a known moderate neurotoxic medication in a patient with ataxia, tremor, motor neuropathy, or sensory neuropathy of CTCAE version 5.0 Grade 1 or higher. 2. Any contraindication or a medication or supplement known to severely interact with the standard antimicrobial regimen (SAR) as detailed in the US Prescribing Information (USPI) or Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC) of fluconazole, posaconazole, or TMP/SMX. 16. Known hypersensitivity to Rezafungin for Injection, any echinocandin, fluconazole, posaconazole, other azole antifungal, or to any of their excipients. 17. Known hypersensitivity or inability to receive TMP/SMX or any of its excipients, including but not limited to anaphylaxis, exfoliative skin disorders, or acute porphyria. 18. Recent use of an investigational medicinal product within 28 days or greater to assure more than 5 half-lives have passed to prevent overlapping toxicities when this study's investigational product is dosed, or presence of an investigational device at the time of screening. 19.

Experimental
Group 1: Rezafungin for Injection
Subjects in Rezafungin treatment group will receive a 400 mg loading dose in Week 1, followed by 200 mg once weekly, for a total of 13 weeks. Subjects will receive oral placebo for standard antimicrobial regimen (SAR) azole prophylaxis and oral placebo for SAR anti-Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) prophylaxis in accordance with the respective SAR dosing regimens for each. For subjects who are switched to a SAR IV regimen, oral placebo for SAR azole prophylaxis will be changed to IV placebo. There is no IV option for SAR anti-PCP prophylaxis.

Active Comparator
Group 2: Oral Antifungal
Subjects in SAR treatment group will receive 400 mg oral fluconazole once daily for 13 weeks. Fluconazole may be switched, due to acute clinically significant graft versus-host disease (GVHD), to 300 mg oral posaconazole twice daily on the first day of the medication switch and 300 mg once daily, thereafter. However, subjects who are switched to posaconazole cannot be switched back to fluconazole. Azole-based antifungal therapy (fluconazole or posaconazole) can be switched from daily oral therapy to daily IV therapy at the discretion of the Investigator. In addition, subjects in the SAR group will receive anti-PCP prophylaxis with oral TMP/SMX (80 mg TMP/400 mg SMX) once daily. There is no IV option for SAR anti-PCP prophylaxis.
