Microbial and chemical transformations of some 12,13-epoxytrichothec-9,10-enes. (1/8644)

Resting cells of Streptomyces griseus, Mucor mucedo, and a growing culture of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus when mixed with compounds related to 12,13-epoxytrichothec-9-ene-4beta,15-diacetoxy-3alpha-ol(anguidine) produced a series of derivatives that were either partially hydrolyzed or selectively acylated. These derivatives showed marked differences in activities as assayed by antifungal and tissue culture cytotoxicity tests.  (+info)

Early mycological treatment failure in AIDS-associated cryptococcal meningitis. (2/8644)

Cryptococcal meningitis causes significant morbidity and mortality in persons with AIDS. Of 236 AIDS patients treated with amphotericin B plus flucytosine, 29 (12%) died within 2 weeks and 62 (26%) died before 10 weeks. Just 129 (55%) of 236 patients were alive with negative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cultures at 10 weeks. Multivariate analyses identified that titer of cryptococcal antigen in CSF, serum albumin level, and CD4 cell count, together with dose of amphotericin B, had the strongest joint association with failure to achieve negative CSF cultures by day 14. Among patients with similar CSF cryptococcal antigen titers, CD4 cell counts, and serum albumin levels, the odds of failure at week 10 for those without negative CSF cultures by day 14 was five times that for those with negative CSF cultures by day 14 (odds ratio, 5.0; 95% confidence interval, 2.2-10.9). Prognosis is dismal for patients with AIDS-related cryptococcal meningitis. Multivariate analyses identified three components that, along with initial treatment, have the strongest joint association with early outcome. Clearly, more effective initial therapy and patient management strategies that address immune function and nutritional status are needed to improve outcomes of this disease.  (+info)

Infectious complications in 126 patients treated with high-dose chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. (3/8644)

The effect of an extensive prophylactic antimicrobial regimen was prospectively assessed in 126 patients after high-dose chemotherapy and autologous PBSC. They received ciprofloxacin (500 mg/12 h), acyclovir (200 mg/6 h), and itraconazole (200 mg/12 h) orally until neutrophil recovery. Febrile patients received i.v. imipenem (500 mg/6 h) to which vancomycin and amikacin were added if fever persisted for 2-3 and 5 days, respectively. Amphotericin B lipid complex was further given on day 7 or 8 of fever. Median times for a neutrophil count of >0.5 x 10(9)/l and a platelet count of >20 x 10(9)/l were 9 and 11 days. Severe neutropenia (<0.1 x 10(9)/l) lasted for a median of 5 days in which 72% of febrile episodes and 50% of cases of bacteremia occurred. Gram-positive bacteria were isolated in 30 of 40 episodes of bacteremia, 25 of which were caused by Staphylococcus epidermidis. Clinical foci were the intravascular catheter in 35 cases, respiratory infection in 11, cellulitis in two, anal abscess in one, and neutropenic enterocolitis in one. The high incidence of febrile episodes (94%) and bacteremias (31%) may be due to the lack of efficacy of antimicrobial prophylaxis and the persistence of a 5-day period of severe neutropenia.  (+info)

Systemic candidiasis with candida vasculitis due to Candida kruzei in a patient with acute myeloid leukaemia. (4/8644)

Candida kruzei-related systemic infections are increasing in frequency, particularly in patients receiving prophylaxis with antifungal triazoles. A Caucasian male with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukaemia (AML M1) developed severe and persistent fever associated with a micropustular eruption scattered over the trunk and limbs during induction chemotherapy. Blood cultures grew Candida kruzei, and biopsies of the skin lesions revealed a candida vasculitis. He responded to high doses of liposomal amphotericin B and was discharged well from hospital.  (+info)

Structure of the complex between the antibiotic cerulenin and its target, beta-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein synthase. (5/8644)

In the biosynthesis of fatty acids, the beta-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) synthases catalyze chain elongation by the addition of two-carbon units derived from malonyl-ACP to an acyl group bound to either ACP or CoA. The enzyme is a possible drug target for treatment of certain cancers and for tuberculosis. The crystal structure of the complex of the enzyme from Escherichia coli, and the fungal mycotoxin cerulenin reveals that the inhibitor is bound in a hydrophobic pocket formed at the dimer interface. Cerulenin is covalently attached to the active site cysteine through its C2 carbon atom. The fit of the inhibitor to the active site is not optimal, and there is thus room for improvement through structure based design.  (+info)

BE-31405, a new antifungal antibiotic produced by Penicillium minioluteum. I. Description of producing organism, fermentation, isolation, physico-chemical and biological properties. (6/8644)

A new antifungal antibiotic, BE-31405, was isolated from the culture broth of a fungal strain, Penicillium minioluteum F31405. BE-31405 was isolated by adsorption on high porous polymer resin (Diaion HP-20), followed by solvent extraction, precipitation and crystallization. BE-31405 showed potent growth inhibitory activity against pathogenic fungal strains such as Candida albicans, Candida glabrata and Cryptococcus neoformans, but did not show cytotoxic activity against mammalian cells such as P388 mouse leukemia. The mechanism studies indicated that BE-31405 inhibited the protein synthesis of C. albicans but not of mammalian cells.  (+info)

In vitro and in vivo activities of NS-718, a new lipid nanosphere incorporating amphotericin B, against Aspergillus fumigatus. (7/8644)

We evaluated the in vitro and in vivo potencies of a new lipid nanosphere that incorporates amphotericin B (AmB), NS-718, against Aspergillus fumigatus. The in vitro activity of NS-718 (the MIC at which 90% of strains are inhibited [MIC90], 0.25 microgram/ml) against 18 isolates of A. fumigatus was similar to that of deoxycholate AmB (D-AmB; Fungizone; MIC90, 0.25 microgram/ml), but NS-718 was more potent than liposomal AmB (L-AmB; AmBi-some; MIC90, 1.0 microgram/ml). The in vivo efficacy of NS-718 in a rat model of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis was compared with those of D-AmB and L-AmB. A low dose (1 mg/kg of body weight) of L-AmB was ineffective (survival rate, 0%), although equivalent doses of D-AmB and NS-718 were more effective (survival rate, 17%). However, a higher dose of NS-718 (3 mg/kg) was more effective (survival rate, 100%) than equivalent doses of D-AmB and L-AmB (survival rate, 0%). To explain these differences, pharmacokinetic studies showed higher concentrations of AmB in the plasma of rats treated with NS-718 than in the plasma of those treated with D-AmB. Our results suggest that NS-718, a new preparation of AmB, is a promising antifungal agent with activity against pulmonary aspergillosis.  (+info)

Effect of fasting on temporal variation in the nephrotoxicity of amphotericin B in rats. (8/8644)

Evidence for temporal variation in the nephrotoxicity of amphotericin B was recently reported in experimental animals. The role of food in these variations was determined by studying the effect of a short fasting period on the temporal variation in the renal toxicity of amphotericin B. Twenty-eight normally fed and 28 fasted female Sprague-Dawley rats were used. Food was available ad libitum to the fed rats, while the fasted animals were fasted 12 h before and 24 h after amphotericin B injection to minimize stress for the animals. Water was available ad libitum to both groups of rats, which were maintained on a 14-h light, 10-h dark regimen (light on at 0600 h). Renal toxicity was determined by comparing the levels of excretion of renal enzyme and the serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels at the time of the maximal (0700 h) or the minimal (1900 h) nephrotoxicity after the intraperitoneal administration of a single dose of dextrose (5%; control group) or amphotericin B (50 mg/kg of body weight; treated group) to the rats. The nephrotoxicities obtained after amphotericin B administration at both times of day were compared to the nephrotoxicities observed for time-matched controls. In fed animals, the 24-h urinary excretion of N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase and beta-galactosidase was significantly higher when amphotericin B was injected at 0700 and 1900 h. The excretion of these two enzymes was reduced significantly (P < 0.05) in fasting rats, and this effect was larger at 0700 h (P < 0.05) than at 1900 h. The serum creatinine level was also significantly higher (P < 0.05) in fed animals treated at 0700 h than in fed animals treated at 1900 h. Fasting reduced significantly (P < 0.05) the increase in the serum creatinine level, and this effect was larger in the animals treated at 0700 h. Similar data were obtained for BUN levels. Amphotericin B accumulation was significantly higher (P < 0.05) in the renal cortexes of fed rats than in those of fasted animals, but there was no difference according to the time of injection. These results demonstrated that fasting reduces the nephrotoxicity of amphotericin B and that food availability is of crucial importance in the temporal variation in the renal toxicity of amphotericin B in rats.  (+info)

Some Candida albicans isolates from AIDS patients with oropharyngeal candidiasis are becoming resistant to the azole antifungal agent fluconazole after prolonged treatment with this compound. Most of the C. albicans isolates resistant to fluconazole fail to accumulate this antifungal agent, and this has been considered a cause of resistance. This phenomenon was shown to be linked to an increase in the amounts of mRNA of a C. albicans ABC (ATP-binding cassette) transporter gene called CDR1 and of a gene conferring benomyl resistance (BENr), the product of which belongs to the class of major facilitator multidrug efflux transporters (D. Sanglard, K. Kuchler, F. Ischer, J. L. Pagani, M. Monod, and J. Bille, Antimicrob. Agents Chemother. 39:2378-2386, 1995). To analyze the roles of these multidrug transporters in the efflux of azole antifungal agents, we constructed C. albicans mutants with single and double deletion mutations of the corresponding genes. The mutants were tested for their ...

Of the 76 isolates, 33 were identified as Candida albicans while 37 were C. parapsilosis, three were C. tropicalis, and three were identified as C. glabrata. The geometric mean range for MIC (μg/ml) with regard to all isolates was 0.077 to 3 μg/ml for FLU and ITR, and 0.375 to 0.70 μg/ml for propolis. It was shown that propolis had significant antifungal activity against all Candida strains and the MIC range of propolis was determined as 0185 to 3 μg/ml ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Empirical antifungal therapy in patients with neutropenia and persistent or recurrent fever of unknown origin. AU - Martino, Rodrigo. AU - Viscoli, Claudio. PY - 2006/1. Y1 - 2006/1. N2 - Persistent or recurrent fever of unexplained origin (PFUO) in neutropenic patients receiving antibiotic therapy is commonly treated with empirical antifungal therapy (EAFT). EAFT was established as an adequate management of PFUO around 20 years ago with conventional amphotericin B deoxycholate (c-AmB), despite its high rate of infusional and systemic toxicities. In recent years, EAFT trials for PFUO have used less toxic agents, such as the lipid formulations of AmB, the new azoles, and the echinocandin, caspofungin. In clinical trials, the lipid formulations of AmB [especially liposomal AmB (L-AmB)] provided similar efficacy with lower toxicity but at a much higher cost. Although rarely used in clinical practice, fluconazole is equivalent to c-AmB, provided patients at high risk of Aspergillus ...
Recent investigations have yielded both profound insights into the mechanisms required by pathogenic fungi for virulence within the human host, as well as novel potential targets for antifungal therapeutics. Some of these studies have resulted in the identification of novel compounds that act against these pathways and also demonstrate potent antifungal activity. However, considerable effort is required to move from pre-clinical compound testing to true clinical trials, a necessary step toward ultimately bringing new drugs to market. The rising incidence of invasive fungal infections mandates continued efforts to identify new strategies for antifungal therapy. Moreover, these life-threatening infections often occur in our most vulnerable patient populations. In addition to finding completely novel antifungal compounds, there is also a renewed effort to redirect existing drugs for use as antifungal agents. Several recent screens have identified potent antifungal activity in compounds previously indicated
In an analysis of approximately 1.4 million pregnancies in Denmark, use of the oral antifungal medication fluconazole during pregnancy was associated with an increased risk of spontaneous abortion compared with risk among unexposed women and women who used a topical antifungal during pregnancy, according to a study in the Jan. 5 issue of JAMA.

Objective: The aim of this work was to assess the antifungal and post-antifungal effects of chlorhexidine, fluconazole, chitosan and its combinations on virulence factors of Candida albicans. Study Design: Ten isolated strains of Candida albicans obtained from 10 patients with oral candidiasis and a collection strain of C. albicans were treated with antifungal agents in different concentrations or combinations of them. Virulence factors analyzed were the cell surface hydrophobicity, the germinative tube development, the phospholipase activity and the post-antifungal effect of that exposure. Results: Virulence factors of the isolated strains obtained from patients together with the collection strain showed significant decreases with the different antifungal treatments, except for hydrophobicity and phospholipase activity. The development of germinative tube was the most sensitive factor to all the antifungal agents used. Untreated strains as well as the ones treated with antifungal agents showed ...
If symptoms dont improve or become worse or if you are at increased risk of complications, your doctor may prescribe an antifungal medication, such as fluconazole. Antifungal medications are also used for people with chronic or disseminated disease.. In general, the antifungal drugs fluconazole (Diflucan) or itraconazole (Sporanox, Onmel) are used for all but the most serious forms of coccidioidomycosis disease.. All antifungals can have serious side effects. However, these side effects usually go away once the medication is stopped. Possible side effects of fluconazole and itraconazole are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea.. More serious infection may be treated initially with an intravenous antifungal medication such as amphotericin B (Abelcet, Amphotec, others).. Two newer medications - voriconazole and posaconazole (Noxafil) - may also be used to treat more serious infections.. Antifungals control the fungus, but sometimes dont destroy it, and relapses may occur. For many ...
In the past, in vitro testing of antifungal agents has been regarded as problematic, but standardized methods have now been developed for Candida spp. and C. neoformans(9). For these methods to be useful, the results should provide a reliable prediction of the response to treatment for humans with infections. In particular, a high MIC should often correlate with therapeutic failure (15). Numerous reports have demonstrated that the ability to predict clinical outcome differs from agent to agent and depends on the patient population studied (5). For instance, high MICs of fluconazole are often predictive of therapeutic failure in human immunodeficiency virus-positive patients with oral candidiasis (12, 16, 17) but do not correlate with the clinical outcome in patients with candidemia (14). The situation with other antifungal agents is even less clear, but a number of investigations have reported that for the amphotericin B MICs for isolates of Candida spp. recovered during prolonged treatment with ...
A standardized broth microdilution method was used to test the antifungal activity of geldanamycin (GA), an inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90), alone or in combination with the antifungal agent fluconazole (FLC) against 32 clinical isolates of Candida spp. In addition, a disk diffusion test was also used to evaluate the antifungal effect of these two drugs against Candida spp. by measuring the inhibition zone diameters. We found that the range of minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) for GA alone against Candida spp. was 3.2-12.8 mg/L and the geometric mean of MICs was 6.54 mg/L. In addition, the combination of GA with FLC showed synergistic effects in vitro against 2 FLC-susceptible and 6 FLC-resistant isolates of C. albicans. As for the other isolates, indifference but no antagonism was observed. In the disk diffusion assay, the diameter of inhibition zones for FLC combined with GA against FLC-resistant C. albicans isolates was 30 mm, while no inhibition was observed with FLC alone. ...

Background: Azoles and polyenes are antifungal agents used for treatment and/or prophylaxis of C. albicans infections, and a high increase in antifungal resistance in clinical isolates of C. albicans in HIV/AIDS patients has been reported. Five genetic clades were described among C. albicans isolates using DNA fingerprinting methods (clades I, II, III, SA and NG). Although these clades have been described, little is known about their phenotypic characteristics, and not much is known about antifungal resistance with regard to each of these clades. The widespread use of fluconazole has led to its increased resistance reported world-wide. Resistance to fluconazole can be caused by point mutations in the ERG11 gene or overexpression of this gene, however, not much is known about the contribution of these mutations and over-expression to fluconazole resistance among different clades of C. albicans, and whether mutations or over-expression are clade-related. There is evidence to suggest that ...

Introduction. Many researchers, particularly the ones from countries with a rich biodiversity, have contributed to the detection of new antifungal compounds in medicinal plants. Screening by using in vitro evaluation is a useful tool for the discovery of new potential antifungal agents from natural products such as essential oils and extracts derived from plants (1). Colombia is the second richest country in the world in biodiversity, and its floral diversity is estimated at 40,000 species of vascular plants (2). Although Colombia possesses a rich tradition in the use of medicinal plants, the antifungal activity of medicinal plantsâ derivates has not been deeply studied.. Candidiasis is a common infection of the skin, nails, oral cavity, esophagus, and vagina, caused by yeast of the Candida genus. Systemic yeast infections are a common consequence of immunosuppression, long-term indwelling catheters, and endocrinopathies. Candida albicans is the most common pathogen causing that fungal ...
Voriconazole is an antifungal agent which has been approved for treatment of a broad range of fungal infections, including those caused by Candida species. The authors, from the United Kingdom, the United States of America and New Zealand, analyzed susceptibility data for the yeasts isolated from patients taking part in the voriconazole phase III clinical trials. The aim was to compare the effectiveness of voriconazole with other agents, by studying the yeasts response to these antifungal agents in vitro, and also to check for resistance to voriconazole. The researchers analyzed the effect of itraconazole, fluconazole, amphotericin B and voriconazole versus 1763 yeasts isolated from samples obtained from 472 patients. The yeast cultures obtained were predominantly Candida spp. (97.1%), although there were seven genera and 22 species of yeasts in all. The infections the patients were suffering from arose most commonly from surgery/trauma/burns (37% of patients), haematological malignancy (13%) ...
Routine in vitro screening of a new synthetic series of 3,5-substituted 2-methylisoxazolidines revealed that three imidazole analogs (PR 967-248, PR 967-234, and PR 969-566) and, to a lesser extent, a triazole analog (PR 988-399) exerted rather potent antifungal activity against three systemic and four dermatophytic classes of fungi. When tested in vivo for ability to eradicate Candida vaginitis in the rat, the triazole derivative, PR 988-399, was effective after oral administration. In this in vivo test for efficacy, PR 967-234 and PR 969-566 reduced but did not eradicate the infection, while PR 967-248 was inactive. PR 988-399 was, moreover, 4- to 13-fold less potent than the three imidazoles in inhibiting testosterone synthesis in isolated rat Leydig cells. After oral or intravenous administration, PR 988-399 and PR 969-566 elicited the fewest cardiovascular and behavioural side effects in conscious dogs. The rat safety study consisted of oral dosing followed by evaluation of the exploratory ...
A fungal infection can range from mild to severe, and can be life threatening, requiring hospitalization and possibly many months of one or more antifungal medications to eliminate the infection. A life threatening fungal infection probably sounds odd to you because the most common fungal infections are of the skin, vagina and mouth, such as athletes foot, jock itch, ringworm, vaginal yeast infections and oral thrush. Skin infections can usually be prevented or cleared up by keeping the area clean and dry. Most are treatable with medications you can buy without a prescription. Sometimes stubborn fungal infections require prescription antifungal medication, so see your health care provider if yours does not clear up with home treatment.
Invasive fungal infections are becoming an increasingly important cause of human mortality and morbidity, particularly for immunocompromised populations. The fungal pathogens Candida albicans, Cryptococcus neoformans, and Aspergillus fumigatus collectively contribute to over 1 million human deaths annually. Hence, the importance of safe and effective antifungal therapeutics for the practice of modern medicine has never been greater. Given that fungi are eukaryotes like their human host, the number of unique molecular targets that can be exploited for drug development remains limited. Only three classes of molecules are currently approved for the treatment of invasive mycoses. The efficacy of these agents is compromised by host toxicity, fungistatic activity, or the emergence of drug resistance in pathogen populations. Here we describe our current arsenal of antifungals and highlight current strategies that are being employed to improve the therapeutic safety and efficacy of these drugs. We discuss state
Using combination antifungal therapy for invasive mold diseases is still a grey area that remains to be supported by robust data and relies heavily on clinician assessment.
RESULTS: In all, 15 (65%) of the 23 centers were adult SCT centers, 7 (31%) were pediatric SCT centers, and 1 center treated both adult and pediatric patients. All centers (23/23) performed both allogeneic and autologous transplants, 20 centers performed non-myeloablative transplants, 8 performed cord blood transplants, and 7 performed unrelated transplants. Primary antifungal prophylaxis was used at all 23 centers during allogeneic transplants, whereas 18 of the 23 centers used it during every autologous transplant and 2 of the 23 centers used it during autologous transplants on a per case basis. The most common drug used for prophylaxis was fluconazole (F) (21/23), followed by itraconazole (I) (3/23), amphotericin-B (2/23), and posaconazole (1/23). Among the 23 centers, 3 reported that for allogenic transplants they changed the antifungal prophylactic in cases of graft versus host disease (GVHD), and 12 of the 23 centers reported that they changed the antifungal prophylactic in case of nearby ...

Posaconazole prophylaxis in allo-BMT recipients is generally administered in combination with immunosuppressive drugs for GVHD Wortmannin prophylaxis and/or treatment most commonly cyclosporine (CsA). On the basis of its CYP3A4-inhibitory activity posaconazole increases the exposure to CsA warranting a recommendation for close monitoring. ...
Current antifungal agents in medicine presents high toxicity and collateral effects, targets limited cell constituents and different resistance mechanisms have already been described. In order to identify novel potential antifungal drug targets, two hypothetical Candida albicans genes potentially essential and with singular expression profile have been characterized. The ORF CaYlr339c is conserved among fungal species from Candida and Saccharomyces genus, is transcribed in yeast and hyphae and an approximately 18-kDa protein was identified in hyphae and yeasts C. albicans cell extracts by western blotting. The ORF CaYdr187c is conserved in a few representatives of the Saccharomyces genus, is transcribed only in yeasts and potentially codifies a surface protein. These findings indicate that the selected ORFs are real genes and could be good candidates for the discovery of new functions and the development of new antifungal agents in the future. In an attempt to test the possible role of the ...

As to our knowledge laschiatrion possesses a new steroid skeleton ...
Antifungal therapy is an important element of patient management for acute and chronic diseases. Yet, as the global burden of fungal infections rises, treatment choices are constrained due to limited classes of antifungal agents. Furthermore, clinical management of fungal diseases is made even more tenuous by the emergence of antifungal drug resistance. More recently, the evolution of multidrug resistant organisms refractory to several different classes of antifungal agents is alarming. The resistance mechanisms responsible are largely shared by strains displaying inherently reduced susceptibility to specific antifungal agents and strains acquiring resistance during therapy. The principal molecular mechanisms are well characterized and include diminished drug-target interactions through changes in affinity and target abundance, and reduction in the intracellular level of drug through expression of high-capacity efflux pumps and biofilm formation. In some strains, high-level resistance occurs through a
The prevention and treatment of invasive fungal infections is being improved by the relatively recent introduction of new antifungal agents. While some of these agents offer better efficacy, others are proving their value more in improved tolerability, said John R. 1

Antifungal creams are part of the treatment plan for fungal infections in dogs. These remedies are applied topically, on the skin. Most of them can also be used in more sensitive areas of the body. An antifungal cream relieves the uncomfortable symptoms and destroys the fungi.. The disadvantage of using antifungal creams is that the dog might lick them off the skin before the medication can produce any effect. You should try to prevent this after applying the cream by bandaging the skin or making sure you massage the cream into the skin.. Generally antifungal creams designed for human use can also be used in dogs. Before starting any type of treatment it is best to consult your veterinarian and let him decide on the most appropriate product for your dogs infection. The most common active substances of antifungal creams are:. ...

Roy et al conducted a study of the role of OTC vaginal pH self-test products in improving the use of antifungal medications.6 The studys objectives were to: 1) assess patients ability to understand how to use a vaginal pH self-test product to diagnose vaginitis; 2) determine whether there is similarity between vaginal pH readings by patients and by HCPs; and 3) decide whether a vaginal pH self-test product can help reduce the inappropriate use of OTC antifungal medications. The patients were of varied backgrounds, educational levels (range, 0 years of formal education to graduate school), and ages (range, 17 to 73 years). Of the 151 women studied, 33 (22%) were asymptomatic and 118 (78%) were symptomatic. Of the 118 symptomatic patients, 96 were premenopausal, were not pregnant, and had a uterus in situ. Since a final diagnosis was not supplied by the HCP for eight patients, 88 symptomatic patients were used for analysis. A vaginal pH level exceeding 4.5 was considered to be a positive finding ...

Invasive fungal diseases have increased many fold over the past 50 years. Current treatment regimens typically require prolonged administration of antifungal medications that can have significant toxicity. Moreover, our present potent antifungal armamentarium fails to eradicate fungal pathogens from certain compromised hosts. Additionally, invasive fungal diseases continue to have unacceptably high mortality rates. A growing body of work has focused on the utility of vaccines and/or immunotherapy as a powerful tool in combating mycoses, either for the active treatment, as an adjuvant, or in the prevention of specific fungal pathogens. This Research Topic will detail the exciting progress in developing vaccines and immunotherapy for fungi.
The antibacterial and antifungal action of copper nanoparticles in vitro in relation to pathogenic test strains and clinical isolates of microorganisms - causative agents of infectious and inflammatory processes of different localization
Background. Oncological patients with invasive fungal infections (IFI) have a high mortality. Many of them are treated empirically with wide spectrum antifungals (AF). They are an interesting target for antifungal stewardship programs. The aims of our study were to analyze the characteristics and appropriateness of the use of restricted antifungals (used as empirical and targeted therapy) in oncologic patients and to identify potential targets for antifungal stewardship (AFS) interventions. Methods. We performed a retrospective study, including all patients receiving candins, voriconazole, posaconazole and L-AmB, during suspicion of an IFI episode from September 2011 until September 2014 in a tertiary care center. Patients receiving fluconazole were excluded. To evaluate the adequacy of AF use, we scored from 0 to 10 considering: indication, drug selection, dosage, adjustment to microbiological results, switch to oral route and duration of therapy according to local guidelines. Results. In our ...

Invasive fungal infections have become an important cause of mortality in immunocompromised and severely ill patients, in both the developing world and western countries. The mortality rates from these infections can reach 50% or more. Candida albicans is the most common human fungal pathogen, causing mucosal infections and systemic invasive disease. A key feature of fungi is that they are eukaryotic organisms closely related to their human host, posing a problem for the design of safe, but effective antifungal therapy. Excitingly, we have identified a new fungal-specific factor not conserved in humans, Taf14, which represents a promising antifungal drug target. Current studies suggest that Taf14 plays a role in transcription and DNA repair, and potentially impacts on two key virulence attributes in C. albicans, adherence and filamentous growth. However, the molecular functions of this factor are unknown. Targeting Taf14 or the process it regulates would represent a completely novel approach to ...

The inhibitory effect of antifungal drugs at the incubation endpoint of the NCCLS M27-A method is based on cell growth, which is measured in terms of culture turbidity. For cell growth to occur, the yeast must first and continually absorb sufficient exogenous nutrients. When yeast cells were exposed to antifungal drug pressure, their ability to absorb substrate (glucose) was inhibited, and this effect occurred in the absence of any cell turbidity change. The magnitude of substrate consumption was dependent on the degree of drug pressure (Fig. 2). These observations suggested that substrate consumption could form the basis of an RSA.. Several factors influence the sensitivity of RSA. These factors are not unique to the RSA but are common to those susceptibility assays that depend on metabolic activity to provide a detectable endpoint. Perhaps the most critical of these factors are inoculum density, organism growth rate, incubation time, and mechanism of drug action (1). Additional important ...

Recently, the scientific interest into biological properties of EO has been increasing. In particular, a large number of papers have been published on the EO antimicrobial activity, but many of them focused on the activity of EO in solution against bacteria and yeasts while little investigation on the effect of EO in vapour state has been performed (Inouye et al. 2000, 2001a, 2001b). In the present study, the antifungal activity of seven EO were compared by microdilution and VC methods against dermatophytes and other moulds. Quantification of the EO antimicrobial activity appears to be influenced by the test method used, as evidenced by the differences between the MICs obtained by BM and VC methods. The results revealed that five of the seven EO tested were stronger inhibitory in vapour state than in liquid phase. The efficacy of EO in vapour state was probably attributable to the direct deposition of EO on lipophilic fungal mycelia together with an indirect effect via adsorption through the ...
New research indicates that the oral antifungal drug itraconazole, most commonly used to treat nail fungus, may keep prostate cancer from worsening
An FDA-approved drug used for preventing recurrence of breast cancer shows promise in fighting life-threatening fungal infections common in immune-compromised patients, such as infants born prematurely and patients with cancer. Some scientists suspected that tamoxifen has antifungal properties; now new research from the University of Rochester Medical Center shows that it actually kills fungus cells and stops them from causing disease.. "Its still early, but if tamoxifen, or molecules like it, turns out to be an effective treatment against serious fungal infections, itll be a welcome addition to our arsenal," said Damian Krysan, M.D., Ph.D., author of the research recently published in the journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy and assistant professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center ..

Fungal infections are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and current anti-fungal drugs have drawbacks. These new drugs may pave the way for the development of a new class of anti-fungals," said principal investigator Maurizio Del Poeta, professor in the department of molecular genetics and microbiology at Stony Brook University, New York.. The three classes of anti-fungal drugs currently available - azoles, polyenes, and echinocandins - dont work that well. They are toxic, so they affect other organs, and they are static, meaning they may be able to stop a fungus from replicating but they are not able to kill the fungus.. When fungal cells lack a lipid called glucosylceramide (GlcCer), they are unable to replicate. Taking a cue from this weakness and develop a new class of anti-fungals, the team screened a synthetic drug library for compounds that target the synthesis of fungal but not mammalian GlcCer.. "The enzymes that are important for the synthesis of fungal ...

A new drug, Abraxane, has been developed, and when given with gemcitabine, the FDA approved pancreatic cancer chemo drug, Abraxane extends life about 54 days at a cost of $6,000-8,000 per month. To a pancreatic cancer patient, these 54 days are likely anything but quality days. The proper diet and antifungal drugs can often dramatically increase not only lifespan, but also quality of life. Factoring in a good juicer, some organic vegetables and fruits, the cost of antifungal drugs or great antifungal supplements, and Alpha-glycopeptides to stimulate the bodys immune system to heal itself, within 3 months youll probably spend about $2500! This natural therapy has a 92% "smiling rate" compared to the 54 miserable days laid out by the great pharmaceutical industry.

Amphotericin B lipid complex: treatment of invasive fungal infections in patients refractory to or intolerant of amphotericin B deoxycholate PH ChandrasekarDivision of Infectious Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Wayne State University, Karmanos Cancer Institute, Detroit, MI, USAAbstract: Amphotericin B lipid complex (ABLC) was introduced in the late 1990s as a less toxic alternative to amphotericin B (AmB) deoxycholate. ABLC is a safe and effective broad-spectrum drug in the treatment of invasive fungal infections in patients with infection refractory to AmB deoxycholate or in patients intolerant of the same formulation. The drug has not been rigorously evaluated for primary therapy. Recent availability of several newer potent and safe drugs has sharply curtailed the use of potentially nephrotoxic ABLC. However, AmB lipid complex is likely to continue to play a limited albeit significant clinical role in view of the narrow spectrum of activity and significant drug-drug interactions of the
Biofilm formation is a major virulence attribute of Candida pathogenicity which contributes to higher antifungal resistance. We investigated the roles of cell density and cellular aging on the relative antifungal susceptibility of planktonic, biofilm, and biofilm-derived planktonic modes of Candida. A reference and a wild-type strain of Candida albicans were used to evaluate the MICs of caspofungin (CAS), amphotericin B (AMB), nystatin (NYT), ketoconazole (KTC), and flucytosine (5FC). Standard, NCCLS, and European Committee on Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing methods were used for planktonic MIC determination. Candida biofilms were then developed on polystyrene wells, and MICs were determined with a standard 2,3-bis(2-methoxy-4-nitro-5-sulfophenyl)-5- [(phenylamino)carbonyl]-2H-tetrazolium hydroxide assay. Subsequently, antifungal susceptibility testing was performed for greater inoculum concentrations and 24- and 48-h-old cultures of planktonic Candida. Furthermore, Candida biofilm-derived ...

N2 - Black aspergilli are among the main causative agents of otomycosis worldwide. In this study, the species assignment of black aspergilli isolated from otomycosis cases in Iran was carried out using sequence analysis of part of the calmodulin gene. The results indicate that Aspergillus niger is not the only black Aspergillus species involved in otomycosis cases in Iran: Aspergillus awamori and Aspergillus tubingensis are also able to cause ear infections. Antifungal susceptibility tests were carried out against five antifungal drugs including amphotericin B, fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole and terbinafine. All isolates were highly susceptible to terbinafine, while they exhibited ...
A 40-year-old woman had a 10-year history of dermatophyte-related toenail onychomycosis (tinea unguium) and dry-type tinea pedis, which had failed to respond to previous therapy with topical antifungal agents or oral griseofulvin. The patient was successfully treated with four cycles of intermittent itraconazole therapy (that is, 400 mg/d for 1 week per month for 4 months). At the end of this time, the tinea pedis had resolved and the onychomycosis improved significantly after four cycles were completed. Twelve months after the onset of therapy, both conditions had resolved completely according to both clinical and mycologic criteria. Itraconazole was well tolerated, with no side effects reported. These observations suggest that itraconazole intermittent dosing is a highly effective therapy for the treatment of onychomycosis caused by dermatophyte organisms, because it provides a high cure rate after only a short course of therapy. ...

Itraconazole, fluconazole, voriconazole and posaconazole - the mechanism of action of itraconazole is the same as the other azole antifungals: it inhibits the fungal cytochrome P450 oxidase-mediated synthesis of ergosterol.. Fluconazole is active against most Candida species, with the absolute exception of Candida krusei and partial exception of Candida glabrata and a small number of isolates of Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida parapsilosis and other rare species. It is also active against the vast majority of Cryptococcus neoformans isolates. It is active against many other yeasts including Trichosporon beigelii, Rhodotorula rubra, and the dimorphic endemic fungi including Blastomyces dermatitidis, Coccidioides immitis, Histoplasma capsulatumand Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. It is less active than itraconazole against these dimorphic fungi. It is not active against Aspergillus or Mucorales. It is active against skin fungi such as Trichophyton. Increasing resistance in Candida ...
Background: Fungi such as candida (the organism that causes thrush) can cause severe infections in very low birth weight infants (birth weight less than 1.5 kg). These infections are often difficult to diagnose. It may be appropriate to attempt to prevent such infections by giving all very low birth weight infants antifungal drugs as a routine part of their care (systemic antifungal prophylaxis). This review assessed whether evidence exists that such a practice prevents severe fungal infection, death, and disability in very low birth weight infants.
