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.

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 ...

Candida dubliniensis is a recently identified opportunistic yeast pathogen that is now recognized to be a minor constituent of normal human oral microbial flora. In previous studies C. dubliniensis was recovered from the oral cavities of 27% of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals and 32% of AIDS patients with clinical symptoms of oral candidiasis (2, 6, 14-16). The role and incidence ofC. dubliniensis in other infections has yet to be established. Despite this fact, there have been very few studies evaluating the in vitro susceptibilities of C. dubliniensis isolates to existing antifungal agents (15). Moran et al. (6) reported on the in vitro susceptibilities of 20 isolates of C. dubliniensis to fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole, and amphotericin B. They found that the majority (80%) of C. dubliniensis isolates were susceptible to commonly used antifungal agents, including fluconazole. However, they did recover C. dubliniensisisolates with reduced susceptibilities to ...
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 ...

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.
Background: Over the past 5 decades, therapeutic options for invasive fungal infections have remained limited and sub-optimal. Recently, novel antifungal agents like caspofungin and voriconazole have been approved for use. These antifungals offer an advancement in antifungal therapy; however, clinical experience with these agents is limited. We therefore sought to examine how these agents are being used and their impact on patient outcomes at an urban medical center. Methods: The charts of the first 15 patients receiving voriconazole and 15 consecutive patients receiving caspofungin were retrospectively identified and reviewed. Data extraction included patient demographics, past medical history, current admission diagnosis, laboratory values, radiology results, microbiology, and antifungal use. Follow up care in outpatient clinics were reviewed for patient outcome and radiological improvements, when available. Results: 11 patients received antifungal treatment with caspofungin, 3 with ...

These findings confirm and extend those reported previously regarding the antifungal activity of ravuconazole (4, 7, 13, 18) and voriconazole (1, 5, 6, 10, 13, 18). Both triazoles were more active in vitro than fluconazole and itraconazole against virtually all of the Candida spp. tested. Although the MICs of ravuconazole and voriconazole for C. albicans and C. glabrata isolates that were resistant to fluconazole and itraconazole (RR phenotype) were also found to be elevated, those isolates that were resistant to fluconazole alone (RS phenotype) and those for which fluconazole MICs were 16 to 32 μg/ml, were susceptible to ≤1 μg of both ravuconazole and voriconazole per ml. As reported by Perea et al. (12), high-level fluconazole-resistant strains of C. albicans commonly display multiple mechanisms of resistance, including overexpression of MDR1 and CDR efflux pumps as well as alterations in the target enzyme and overexpression of the genes encoding the enzyme. Such isolates have been shown ...
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 ...
Invasive fungal infections are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in children. Successful management of these systemic infections requires identification of the causative pathogen, appropriate antifungal selection, and optimisation of its pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties to maximise its antifungal activity and minimise toxicity and the emergence of resistance. This review highlights salient scientific advancements in paediatric antifungal pharmacotherapies and focuses on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies that underpin current clinical decision making. Four classes of drugs are widely used in the treatment of invasive fungal infections in children, including the polyenes, triazoles, pyrimidine analogues and echinocandins. Several lipidic formulations of the polyene amphotericin B have substantially reduced the toxicity associated with the traditional amphotericin B formulation. Monotherapy with the pyrimidine analogue flucytosine rapidly promotes the emergence ...
Background: In contrast to the increasing numbers of agents for the treatment of invasive fungal infections, discoveries of new antifungal agents with therapeutic value in dermatomycoses are reported only rarely. Methods: Abafungin (chemical abstracts service registry No. 129639-79/8) is the first member of a novel class of synthetic antifungal compounds, the arylguanidines. It was first synthesized at Bayer AG, Leverkusen, Germany, and its antifungal action was discovered during the screening of H-2-receptor antagonists based on the structure of famotidine. To obtain insight into its mode of action and antifungal activity, various tests were carried out with different fungal pathogens in vitro. Results: Abafungin was found to have potent antifungal activity. Furthermore, mode-of-action studies suggested that abafungin exerts its antifungal activity regardless of whether the pathogens are growing or in a resting state. One target of abafungin was found to be the inhibition of transmethylation at ...

New antifungals. Maria Coca, researcher at CRAG and one of the senior authors of the study, explains that only a few classes of antifungal agents are available today, and even these are not fully effective due to the development of resistance, host toxicity, and undesirable side effects. Many of these compounds do not even comply with the regulations, and therefore they cannot be used. Thus, there is an urgent need to develop novel antifungals, whose properties and mechanisms of action represent improvements on the existing ones, and which can be applied in diverse fields, including crop and postharvest protection, preservation in cosmetics, materials and food, and animal and human health. Cocas research group, in collaboration with the IATAs researcher Jose F. Marcos, aims to develop new antifungal compounds based on the antifungal proteins (AFPs) secreted by filamentous fungi. The problem is that the synthesis of these compounds is extremely complex; hence their exploitation requires ...

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%) ...

Antifungal creams during pregnancy raise safety issues. Learn how to treat fungal infections safely with antifungal creams in pregnancy.
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 ...

TEXT Posaconazole is certainly a book triazole with broad-spectrum antifungal activity and a good toxicity profile (4 7 thats currently accepted for principal antifungal prophylaxis in allogeneic bloodstream and marrow transplantation (allo-BMT) recipients with graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) (18). 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 ...
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:. ...

Disseminated Candidainfections are becoming increasingly common among infants in intensive care nurseries. Although the treatment of choice has traditionally been amphotericin B, some infants experience nephrotoxicity during treatment, which compromises their ability to complete the treatment. Others fail to respond to conventional doses of amphotericin B and may not tolerate increased doses. Some infants have underlying renal disease or are given other nephrotoxic drugs that can potentiate the nephrotoxicity of amphotericin B.. Although three lipid based amphotericin B products are available in many countries, to date there are few data on their safety and efficacy in neonates. Amphotericin B lipid complex (ABLC) is licensed in the United States for the treatment of invasive fungal infections in adults and children who are refractory to or intolerant of conventional amphotericin B. ABLC is less nephrotoxic at higher concentrations than amphotericin B in animal models and humans.1 An effective ...

Antifungal agents may differ in their fungicidal activities against Aspergillus spp. In order to compare the fungicidal activities of voriconazole and amphotericin B against 40 isolates of Aspergillus fumigatus, A. flavus, and A. terreus, we developed a new microbroth colorimetric method for assessing fungicidal activities and determining minimal fungicidal concentrations (MFCs). This methodology follows the antifungal susceptibility testing reference method M-38A for MIC determination. After drug removal and addition of fresh medium, growth of viable conidia adhering to the bottoms of the microtitration wells was assessed by a colorimetric assay of metabolic activity after 24 h of incubation. The new method was faster (six times), reproducible (92 to 97%), and in agreement with culture-based MFCs (91 to 100%). Differential fungicidal activities of voriconazole and amphotericin B were found among the three Aspergillus species, with A. fumigatus and A. flavus having the lowest (1 and 2 mg/liter, ...
Twelve species of local Malaysian plants and 5 strains of medically important fungi were selected for this study. Antifungal susceptibility test was performed to screen the antifungal activity of these plants against the selected fungi. Piper betel produced the best result in antifungal susceptibility testing and showed to possess antifungal property against 4 out of 5 strains of the fungus. Solid Phase extraction (SPE) technique was applied to Piper betel to achieve initial separation of active antifungal compound in the form of methanol fractions. These fractions were tested for their antifungal property. Piper betel showed the best antifungal activity especially against Trichophyton rubrum.
TY - JOUR. T1 - In vitro susceptibilities of yeasts to a new antifungal triazole, SCH 39304. T2 - Effects of test conditions and relation to in vivo efficacy. AU - McIntyre, K. A.. AU - Galgiani, J. N.. PY - 1989/1/1. Y1 - 1989/1/1. N2 - We used six candidal strains (two Candida albicans and one each of four other species) to study the effects of test conditions on the activity of SCH 39304 compared with that of fluconazole in broth macro- and microdilution assays. Increasing the inoculum from 102 to 105 yeasts per ml raised the MICs for all isolates up to , 512-fold. In contrast, results with a 50% turbidimetric endpoint (50% inhibitory concentration; IC( 1/2 )) varied no more than twofold. Similar effects were seen with fluconazole, and both drugs were found to have an associated delay in onset of action. Acidity was found to increase both MICs and IC( 1/2 )s. Other effects were observed among four synthetic media, but a consistent pattern was not identified. Incubation temperatures of 37, 35 ...
Fungal biofilms were more resistant to antimicrobial agents than planktonic cells. Four distinct growth phases in relation to antifungal susceptibility were examined. Our results demonstrated that all three strains became increasingly resistant to antifungal agents throughout morphological differentiation, which was consistent with the report by Imamura et al., 10 showing that Fusarium biofilms exhibited reduced susceptibility to lens care solutions in a time-dependent manner. Moreover, our results showed that the mature biofilms were intrinsically resistant to the azole antifungal drugs (FLU, VRC, and ITC). Multiple mechanisms have been proposed for the increased resistance of biofilms to antifungal agents. Our results indicate that ECM increased and a network of hyphal structures formed throughout the incubation time. The architecture of biofilms and the presence of ECM might reduce the diffusion of antifungal drugs, and they may be responsible for the increased resistance of biofilms to ...
Should you be plagued by a fungal infection and you immediately need an effective antifungal, then you could try using fluconazole 150 mg. Fluconazole 150 mg is commonly known in the medical world as an effective antifungal drug that can be given to the patient orally (by mouth) or intravenously (by injecting in the vein). Fluconazole 150 mg is extremely helpful in curing a huge variety of infections caused by fungi species, especially in cases of Candida infections located in the mouth (thrush), throat, bloodstream, and vagina (yeast infection). Fluconazole 150 mg is also helpful for people who have very weak immune systems and it helps such people to avoid getting infections. Examples of people who have compromised or weak immune systems include those who have undergone transplant operations, those who have neutropenia because of chemotherapy due to cancer, and it can even help keep premature babies fungal infection-free. Fluconazole 150 mg simply works by interfering or obstructing with the ...

N2 - Caspofungin, an echinocandin, is approved for use in invasive candidiasis. Few cases of break-through candidal infections during caspofungin therapy have been reported and none have involved Candida parapsilosis. Here, we report a patient who developed multiple post-operative complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy for a pancreatic mass, including fungemia due to C. parapsilosis, while on caspofungin for treatment of Candida glabrata peritonitis. The fungemia resolved after a central venous catheter was removed and therapy was switched from caspofungin to amphotericin B lipid complex. Studies of C. parapsilosis susceptibility and the pharmacodynamics and drug interactions of caspofungin that may contribute to breakthrough fungemia are discussed.. AB - Caspofungin, an echinocandin, is approved for ...
The genetic heterogeneity and antifungal susceptibility patterns of Candida parapsilosis isolated from blood cultures of patients were investigated in this study. Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis generated 5 unique profiles from 42 isolates. Based on the major DNA fragments of the RAPD profiles, the isolates were identified as RAPD type P1 (29 isolates), P2 (6 isolates), P3 (4 isolates), P4 (2 isolates) and P5 (1 isolate). Sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) gene of the isolates identified RAPD type P1 as C. parapsilosis, P2 and P3 as Candida orthopsilosis, P4 as Candida metapsilosis, and P5 as Lodderomyces elongisporus. Nucleotide variations in ITS gene sequences of C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were detected. Antifungal susceptibility testing using Etests showed that all isolates tested in this study were susceptible to amphotericin B, fluconazole, ketoconazole, itraconazole and voriconazole. C. parapsilosis isolates exhibited higher MIC50 values than
Pediatric patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) often receive intravenous liposomal amphotericin B (L-AmB) as antifungal prophylaxis. There are no guidelines for antifungal prophylaxis in children in this situation. Caspofungin (CAS), a broad-spectrum echinocandin, could be an effective alternative with lower nephrotoxicity than L-AmB. We retrospectively analyzed the safety, feasibility, and efficacy of CAS in our center, and compared the results with L-AmB as antifungal monoprophylaxis in pediatric patients undergoing HSCT. 60 pediatric patients received L-AmB (1 or 3 mg/kg bw/day) and another 60 patients received CAS (50 mg/m2/day) as antifungal monoprophylaxis starting on day one after HSCT. The median ages of patients receiving L-AmB and CAS were 7.5 years and 9.5 years, respectively. No proven breakthrough fungal infection occurred in either group during the median treatment period of 23 days in the L-AmB group and 24 days in the CAS group. One patient
Objective: Amphotericin B failure is frequently seen in patients with candidaemia caused by Candida rugosa. We evaluated amphotericin 13, fluconazole, posaconazole and voriconazole as alternative treatments against infection in mice with two isolates of C. rugosa.Methods: Neutropenic mice were inoculated intravenously with C. rugosa. Amphotericin 13, fluconazole, posaconazole and voriconazole were administered for 7 days after infection. Efficacy of the antifungal treatment was assessed by survival and tissue burden of C. rugosa.Results: All of the four drugs significantly prolonged survival over controls. With both isolates, kidney counts were reduced significantly below controls for amphotericin B, fluconazole and posaconazole. However, voriconazole was less effective than the other antifungals.Conclusion: Despite poor clinical response to amphotericin B, in vivo data indicate that amphotericin B increases organ clearance and survival over untreated controls. However, although voriconazole ...
This study aimed at identifying strains of the C. parapsilosis complex isolated from animals, as well as to assess their in vitro antifungal susceptibility profile and in vitro production of virulence attributes. We used 28 isolates of C. parapsilosis (sensu lato) recovered from clinically healthy animals. The strains were phenotypically characterized, followed by molecular identification of the species through PCR-Restriction Enzyme Analysis. Then, the susceptibility of the strains to amphotericin B, itraconazole, voriconazole, fluconazole and caspofungin was assessed through broth microdilution, according to CLSI (M27-A3). Additionally, the ability of the strains to produce biofilm, phospholipases and proteases was analyzed. Molecular analysis showed thirteen C. parapsilosis (sensu stricto), ten C. orthopsilosis and five C. metapsilosis strains. In vitro resistance to fluconazole was observed in three strains of C. parapsilosis (sensu stricto) and two C. metapsilosis. All tested strains were ...
Background: Azoles and echinocandins are commonly used for treatment of invasive fungal infections. Resistance by Candida glabrata to echinocandins is emerging. Availability of antifungal susceptibility testing of bloodstream isolates (especially C. glabrata) is necessary for appropriate therapy. The aim of this study was to determine antifungal susceptibilities for C. glabrata and compare results from two testing methods. Methods: A total of 429 Candida blood culture isolates were collected from unique New Orleans patients during 2009-2015. Of these, 151 (35%) were C. glabrata (146 viable for testing). Caspofungin and fluconazole MICs were determined by two FDA-approved antifungal susceptibility testing methods, the Vitek® 2 system and the Etest® method. Vitek MICs were finalized in an average time of 13h; Etest MICs were read at 24h. Results: C. glabrata Vitek 2 and Etest determined caspofungin resistance ranged from 6% to 7%, respectively; fluconazole resistance, 12% to 23%, respectively. ...

Winston and colleagues data and conclusions (1) should remind us of the problems encountered in the design and reporting of trials of antifungal agents (2). First, it is unclear why blinding of the 2 agents studied was technologically impossible. Second, even though a multivariable analysis that included graft-versus-host disease showed that itraconazole was still associated with fewer fungal infections than fluconazole, the randomization process could have easily stratified patients by donor type, related versus unrelated, at enrollment. Third, the authors did not mention what percentage of patients in both groups were treated empirically with amphotericin B for suspected fungal infection. Fourth, antifungal prophylactic measures used during the preparative regimens of chemoradiation therapy, such as topical mucosal antifungal agents, were not listed, nor were the prophylactic measures used after day 100 following transplantation. Fifth, the study was designed to show that itraconazole was ...
Although prompt initiation of appropriate antifungal therapy is essential for the control of invasive Candida infections and an improvement of prognosis, early diagnosis of invasive candidiasis remains a challenge and criteria for starting empirical antifungal therapy in ICU patients are poorly defined. Some scoring systems, such as the Candida score could help physicians to differentiate patients who could benefit from early antifungal treatment from those for whom invasive candidiasis is highly improbable. This study evaluated the performance of this score in a cohort of critically ill patients. A prospective, observational, multicenter, cohort study was conducted from January 2010 to March 2011 in five intensive care units in Nord-Pas de Calais, an area from North of France. All patients exhibiting, on ICU admission or during their ICU stay, a hospital-acquired severe sepsis or septic shock could be included in this study. The data collected included patient characteristics on ICU admission and at
The therapeutic armamentarium against both systemic and superficial fungal infections consists primarily of the polyenes, amphotericin B and nystatin; flucytosine, a fluorinated pyrimidine analogue; and the older antifungal azoles, clotrimazole, miconazole, and ketoconazole. Results of recent studies give promise that new investigational antifungal oral azole drugs, including itraconazole, fluconazole, and SCH 39304, will be exciting additions to current compounds. Although none of these new azoles has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration yet, two of them, itraconazole and fluconazole, have already been extensively studied in in-vitro and in-vivo animal model systems, and to a lesser degree in humans. ...

0005]As with all azole antifungal agents, itraconazole and posaconazole work principally by inhibition of cytochrome P450 14a-demethylase (P45014DM). This enzyme is in the sterol biosynthesis pathway that leads from lanosterol to ergosterol [Sheehan, D. J., Hitchcock, C. A., and Sibley, C. M., Clin. Microbiol. Rev. 1999, 12:40-79]. Lanosterol 14α-demethylase (P45014DM, CYP51) is a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily, which catalyzes the removal of the 14-methyl group (C-32) of lanosterol via three successive monooxygenation reactions. The first two of these reactions are conventional cytochrome P450 hydroxylations that produce the 14-hydroxymethyl and 14-carboxyaldehyde derivatives of lanosterol [Trzaskos, J. M., Fischer, R. T., Favata, M. F., J. Biol. Chem. 1986, 261, 16937-16942; Aoyama, Y., Yoshida, Y., Sonoda, Y., Sato, Y., J. Biol. Chem. 1987, 262, 1239-1243]. In the final step, the 14-aldehyde group is eliminated as formic acid with concomitant introduction of a Δ14,15 double bond ...
BCC Research reported that the treatment cost for fungal infections was USD 3 billion worldwide in 2010 and this is expected to increase to USD 6 billion in 2014. Of great concern to the clinical and healthcare communities is the rise in fungal infections, which are resistant to conventional antifungal drugs, as well as increasing reports of resistance development in patients toward antifungal agents. These trends necessitate the urgent development of suitable alternatives to the limited selection of available antifungal agents. Further, most conventional antifungal agents do not completely destroy the fungi but merely inhibit their growth, which may lead to future infections ...

Invasive aspergillosis is a life-threatening and difficult to treat infection in immunosuppressed patients. The efficacy of current anti-Aspergillus therapies, targeting the cell wall or membrane, is limited by toxicity (polyenes), fungistatic activity and some level of basal resistance (echinocandins), or the emergence of acquired resistance (triazoles). The heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is a conserved molecular chaperone involved in the rapid development of antifungal resistance in the yeast Candida albicans. Few studies have addressed its role in filamentous fungi such as Aspergillus fumigatus, in which mechanisms of resistance may differ substantially. Hsp90 is at the center of a complex network involving calcineurin, lysine deacetylases (KDAC) and other client proteins, which orchestrate compensatory repair mechanisms of the cell wall in response to the stress induced by antifungals. In A. fumigatus, Hsp90 is a trigger for resistance to high concentrations of caspofungin, known as

Fluconazole is a fungistatic antifungal medication that is administered orally or intravenously. It is used to treat a variety of fungal infections, especially Candida infections of the vagina (yeast infections), mouth, throat, and bloodstream. It is also used to prevent infections in people with weak immune systems, including those with neutropenia due to cancer chemotherapy, transplant patients, and premature babies. Its mechanism of action involves interfering with synthesis of the fungal cell membrane. Itraconazole (R51211), invented in 1984, is a triazole fungistatic antifungal agent prescribed to patients with fungal infections. The drug may be given orally or intravenously. Itraconazole has a broader spectrum of activity than fluconazole (but not as broad as voriconazole or posaconazole). In particular, it is active against Aspergillus, which fluconazole is not. The mechanism of action of itraconazole is the same as the other azole antifungals: it inhibits the fungal-mediated synthesis ...
The black yeast Exophiala dermatitidis is a frequent agent of colonization of the lungs of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). A total of 71 clinical isolates of Exophiala from 13 patients were identified at the species level by sequencing the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions 1 and 2 of the rDNA genes and typed by random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD), using two different primers, BG-2 and ERIC-1. In vitro susceptibility of these isolates to some systemic antifungal drugs was investigated using the CLSI method. Almost all the isolates were identified as E. dermatitidis, but long-term colonization with the closely related species E. phaeomuriformis was observed in one patient. No clustering was found according to the geographical origin of the isolates, the isolation date or the antifungal susceptibility. Variations were seen in the susceptibility of studied isolates to antifungals but most of them exhibited low susceptibility to amphotericin B and although some patients were
Polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMNs) are indispensable for controlling life-threatening fungal infections. In addition to various effector mechanisms, PMNs also produce extracellular vesicles (EVs). Their contribution to antifungal defense has remained unexplored. We reveal that the clinically important human pathogenic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus triggers PMNs to release a distinct set of antifungal EVs (afEVs). Proteome analyses indicated that afEVs are enriched in antimicrobial proteins. The cargo and release kinetics of afEVs are modulated by the fungal strain confronted. Tracking of produced afEVs indicated that they associated with fungal cells and even entered fungal hyphae, resulting in alterations in the morphology of the fungal cell wall, and imparted antifungal effects dose-dependently. Two identified human proteins of afEVs, cathepsin G and azurocidin, were heterologously expressed in fungal hyphae, which led to reduced fungal growth. In conclusion, the production of afEVs by PMNs ...
Abstract Introduction: The prompt initiation of appropriate antifungal therapy is essential in controlling invasive candidiasis and improving the prognosis in critical patients undergoing treatment in the Intensive Care Unit. Candida Score can assess patients at risk of candidiasis and is expected to assist clinicians in starting antifungal therapy in patients suspected Candidiasis. The purpose of this study was to determine the pattern of antifungal administration in critically ill patients with candidiasis in the Intensive Care Unit at Sanglah General Hospital. Patients and Methods: The design of this study is a cross-sectional descriptive study involving critically ill patients who were under treatment in Intensive Care Unit of Sanglah General Hospital from Januari to June 2019. The patients included in this study were patients who were ≥ 18 years old and under treatment in ICU for at least 7 days. Results: There are 64 patients undergoing treatment in the Intensive Care Unit. From 64 patients,
New approaches for treatment of invasive fungal infections are necessary to cope with emerging resistant fungal pathogens of humans. In this paper, three different strategies are presented and evaluated to find new-type antifungal drugs and their targets. While experimental data obtained with potent chitinase inhibitors, e.g. allosamidin, and small-size antifungal proteins of fungal origin are encouraging more efforts are needed to verify and exploit the possible involvement of intracellular thiols, e.g. glutathione, and their metabolic anzymes in the pathogenesis of mycoses caused by dimorphic fingi. Chitinase inhibitors seem to hinder the cell separation of yeasts and the fragmentation of filamentous fungi quite effectively and, hence, they may be implicated in future therapies of systemic mycoses. In addition, small-size antifungal proteins possessing a broad inhibition spectrum may also provide us with promising new agents for the treatment of different kinds of (e.g. cutaneous) fungal ...

N2 - Until recently, the treatment available for serious fungal infections was composed of amphotericin B and azoles, and each class demonstrated significant limitations. Echinocandins are a new class of drugs that have shown promising results in treating a variety of fungal infections. Of these, anidulafungin is a novel echinocandin that appears to have several advantages over existing antifungals. It is unique because it slowly degrades in humans, undergoing a process of biotransformation rather than being metabolized. It has potent in vitro activity against Aspergillus and Candida species, including those resistant to fluconazole or amphotericin B. Results of several clinical trials indicate that anidulafungin is effective in treating esophageal candidiasis, including azole-refractory disease. The results of a recent study comparing fluconazole versus ...
Terconazole is an antifungal drug used to treat vaginal yeast infection. It comes as a lotion or a suppository and disrupts the biosynthesis of fats in a yeast cell. It has a relatively broad spectrum compared to azole compounds but not triazole compounds. Testing shows that it is a suitable compound for prophylaxis for those that suffer from chronic vulvovaginal candidiasis. Terconazole is a triazole ketal with broad-spectrum antifungal/antimycotic tendencies. In 1940, the first commercial antifungal drug was available on the market. Before this, antifungal treatments were rare and expensive. This treatment was called amphotericin B. It was effective in its function but was very toxic and only used for serious infections. The drug was infused into the bloodstream and could cause kidney damage and other side effects. The first azole compounds were administered to humans under strict care. These compounds were imidazoles, a molecule containing two non-adjacent nitrogen atoms in a 5 membered ring. ...
