Phenotypic switching and filamentation in Candida glabrata. (1/351)

Candida glabrata switches spontaneously, reversibly and at high frequency among the following four phenotypes distinguishable by graded colony colouration on CuSO(4)-containing agar: white (Wh), light brown (LB), dark brown (DB) and very dark brown (vDB). These phenotypes also differ in a graded fashion in the level of expression of the metallothionein gene MTII (WhvDB), the frequency of switching (Wh>LB>DB>vDB) and colouration on phloxine B-containing agar (Wh>LB>DB>vDB). Switching among the four graded phenotypes is referred to as 'the core switching system'. An additional switch phenotype, 'irregular wrinkle' (IWr), has been identified, which exhibits a highly wrinkled colony morphology. The characteristics of IWr suggest that switching to and from this phenotype represents a second high-frequency switching system. A microscopic analysis revealed that during the first 3 days of colony development, cells in the centres of Wh, LB, DB and vDB colonies expressed almost exclusively the budding yeast phenotype. After 3 days, however, pseudohyphae and cells extending tubes accumulated, so that by 7 days the proportions of these two cellular phenotypes reached 40-50% and 10-20%, respectively. In contrast, IWr colonies were composed almost exclusively of pseudohyphae through the first 6 days of colony development. After 6 days, IWr colonies began to accumulate both budding yeast cells and tubes. The tubes formed by C. glabrata reached lengths of up to six cell diameters, but the tubes did not represent traditional compartmentalized hyphae. Tube growth ended when the tube tip expanded to form a bud. Tubes then functioned as corridors for daughter nucleus migration to the apical bud, and were ultimately left uncompartmentalized and nucleus free. Core switching, pseudohypha formation and tube formation occurred in a majority of 62 tested clinical isolates, demonstrating that these developmental programmes are general characteristics of most strains of C. glabrata.  (+info)

Endogenous reactive oxygen species is an important mediator of miconazole antifungal effect. (2/351)

We investigated the significance of endogenous reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by fungi treated with miconazole. ROS production in Candida albicans was measured by a real-time fluorogenic assay. The level of ROS production was increased by miconazole at the MIC (0.125 micro g/ml) and was enhanced further in a dose-dependent manner, with a fourfold increase detected when miconazole was used at 12.5 micro g/ml. This increase in the level of ROS production was completely inhibited by pyrrolidinedithiocarbamate (PDTC), an antioxidant, at 10 micro M. In a colony formation assay, the decrease in cell viability associated with miconazole treatment was significantly prevented by addition of PDTC. Moreover, the level of ROS production by 10 clinical isolates of Candida species was inversely correlated with the miconazole MIC (r = -0.8818; P < 0.01). These results indicate that ROS production is important to the antifungal activity of miconazole.  (+info)

Prospective, multicenter surveillance study of Candida glabrata: fluconazole and itraconazole susceptibility profiles in bloodstream, invasive, and colonizing strains and differences between isolates from three urban teaching hospitals in New York City (Candida Susceptibility Trends Study, 1998 to 1999). (3/351)

Since the 1990s, the substantial increase in the rate of Candida glabrata infections has become a serious problem. As most C. glabrata infections arise from the host's endogenous microflora, the present prospective, multicenter analysis included all clinical isolates associated with colonization and with systemic and hematogenous candidiasis. Among 347 C. glabrata isolates, the overall rates of resistance to fluconazole (MIC > or = 64 micro g/ml) and itraconazole (MIC > or = 1 micro g/ml) were 10.7 and 15.2%, respectively, although for half (n = 148) of the itraconazole-susceptible isolates the MICs (0.25 to 0.5 micro g/ml) were in the susceptible-dependent upon dose range. Fluconazole resistance was more common among C. glabrata isolates obtained from centers caring for patients with cancer (MICs at which 90% of isolates are inhibited [MIC(90)s] = 32 micro g/ml) or AIDS (MIC(90)s > 64 micro g/ml) than among C. glabrata isolates from a community-based university medical center (MIC(90)s = 16 micro g/ml) (P = 0.001). Thirty-three bloodstream isolates and those obtained from other body sites had similar in vitro susceptibility profiles. The fluconazole MIC(90)s (< or =16 micro g/ml) for C. glabrata yeast isolates from the gastrointestinal tract were lower than those (> or =64 micro g/ml) for C. glabrata isolates from respiratory and urinary tract samples (P = 0.01). A similar discrepancy for itraconazole was not significant (P > 0.5). We did not observe differences in fluconazole or itraconazole susceptibility profiles among C. glabrata isolates associated with either hematogenous dissemination or colonization. The significant discrepancy in antifungal susceptibility among C. glabrata organisms isolated from hospitals in the same geographic region emphasizes the significance of periodic susceptibility surveillance programs for individual institutions, especially those providing care to patients at risk.  (+info)

Candida glabrata ATP-binding cassette transporters Cdr1p and Pdh1p expressed in a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain deficient in membrane transporters show phosphorylation-dependent pumping properties. (4/351)

The expression and drug efflux activity of the ATP binding cassette transporters Cdr1p and Pdh1p are thought to have contributed to the recent increase in the number of fungal infections caused by Candida glabrata. The function of these transporters and their pumping characteristics, however, remain ill defined. We have evaluated the function of Cdr1p and Pdh1p through their heterologous hyperexpression in a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain deleted in seven major drug efflux transporters to minimize the background drug efflux activity. Although both Cdr1p- and Pdh1p-expressing strains CDR1-AD and PDH1-AD acquired multiple resistances to structurally unrelated compounds, CDR1-AD showed, in most cases, higher levels of resistance than PDH1-AD. CDR1-AD also showed greater rhodamine 6G efflux and resistance to pump inhibitors, although plasma membrane fractions had comparable NTPase activities. These results indicate that Cdr1p makes a larger contribution than Phd1p to the reduced susceptibility of C. glabrata to xenobiotics. Both pump proteins were phosphorylated in a glucose-dependent manner. Whereas the phosphorylation of Cdr1p affected its NTPase activity, the protein kinase A-mediated phosphorylation of Pdh1p, which was necessary for drug efflux, did not. This suggests that phosphorylation of Pdh1p may be required for efficient coupling of NTPase activity with drug efflux.  (+info)

Identification of Candida glabrata by a 30-second trehalase test. (5/351)

Rapid (30-s) trehalase tests done with material from colonies of 482 yeasts suspended in a drop of trehalose solution on a commercially supplied glucose test strip were positive for 225 (99.1%) of 227 Candida glabrata isolates grown on either of two differential media, Candida ID medium or CandiSelect medium. The test was positive for only 3 (1.2%) and 12 (4.7%) of 255 isolates of other medically important yeast species grown on the same two media, respectively. A rapid maltase test done with a subset of 255 yeast isolates was negative for all but 1 of 64 trehalase-positive C. glabrata isolates, raising the specificity of the rapid testing for C. glabrata to 98.4 to 100%, depending on the isolation medium used. Rapid trehalase and maltase tests done independently in two laboratories with 217 yeast isolates showed sensitivities of 96.0 to 98.0% and specificities of 98.2 to 99.4% for identification of C. glabrata from colonies grown on Candida ID medium. The specificity was much lower because of frequent false-positive trehalose test results when the source of colonies was Sabouraud agar formulated with 4% glucose. We conclude that direct recognition of C. albicans as blue colonies on Candida ID isolation medium coupled with the performance of the 30-s trehalase and maltase tests for C. glabrata among the white colonies on this medium will allow the rapid presumptive identification of the two yeast species most commonly encountered in clinical samples.  (+info)

Multiple patterns of resistance to fluconazole in Candida glabrata isolates from a patient with oropharyngeal candidiasis receiving head and neck radiation. (8/351)

Candida glabrata has emerged in recent years as a significant cause of systemic fungal infection. We have previously reported on the first three patients receiving radiation for head and neck cancer to develop oropharyngeal candidiasis due to C. glabrata. The goal of this study was to track the development of increased fluconazole resistance in C. glabrata isolates and to evaluate previously described genetic mechanisms associated with this resistance from one of these three patients. The patient was a 52-year-old man with squamous cell carcinoma treated with radiation. At week 7 of his radiation, he developed oropharyngeal candidiasis, which was treated with 200 mg of fluconazole daily for 2 weeks. Serial cultures from this and three subsequent time points yielded C. glabrata. Isolates from these cultures were subjected to antifungal susceptibility testing, DNA karyotyping, and evaluation of the expression of genes previously associated with C. glabrata resistance to fluconazole, CgCDR1, CgCDR2, and CgERG11. Two strains (A and B) of C. glabrata were identified and found to display different patterns of resistance development and gene expression. Strain A developed resistance over a 2-week period and showed no overexpression of these genes. In contrast, strain B first showed resistance 6 weeks after fluconazole therapy was discontinued but showed overexpression of all three genes. In conclusion, development of resistance to fluconazole by C. glabrata is a highly varied process involving multiple molecular mechanisms.  (+info)

Types of candidiasis:

1. Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC): a common infection that affects the vagina and vulva; symptoms include itching, burning, and abnormal discharge.

8. Avoid sharing bathing or showering facilities with others.
9. Dry thoroughly after bathing or swimming.
10. Use of antifungal medications as a prophylactic measure in high-risk individuals, such as those with weakened immune systems.

It's important to note that the best treatment and prevention strategies will depend on the specific type of fungus causing the infection, as well as the severity and location of the infection. It is essential to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Symptoms of fungemia may include fever, chills, night sweats, fatigue, and weight loss. Diagnosis is typically made by drawing blood cultures and performing microbiological tests to identify the presence of fungal organisms in the blood. Treatment typically involves administration of antifungal medications, which can be given intravenously or orally. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary to monitor and treat the condition.

In some cases, fungemia can lead to complications such as sepsis, organ failure, and death. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential to prevent these outcomes.

Candidemia can cause a range of symptoms, including fever, chills, rapid heart rate, and confusion. In severe cases, it can lead to organ failure and death. Treatment typically involves the use of antifungal medications, and in some cases, hospitalization is necessary to manage the infection and monitor the patient's condition.

Preventative measures to reduce the risk of developing candidemia include proper handwashing and hygiene, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, and ensuring that medical equipment and surfaces are properly cleaned and disinfected. Early detection and treatment can significantly improve outcomes for patients with candidemia.

The most common cause of candidiasis is an imbalance in the natural bacteria and yeast that live in and around the vagina. This imbalance can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

* Taking antibiotics, which can kill off the "good" bacteria that keep candida in check
* Pregnancy and menopause, when hormonal changes can lead to an overgrowth of yeast
* Diabetes, which can cause excess sugar in the body that feeds the growth of yeast
* Weakened immune system
* Poor hygiene or poor fitting clothing and underwear that can trap moisture and create a warm environment for yeast to grow.

The symptoms of candidiasis can vary from person to person, but common signs include:

* Itching, burning, and redness of the vulva and vagina
* A thick, white discharge that looks like cottage cheese and has no odor or a mild, sweet smell
* Pain or discomfort during sex
* Difficulty getting pregnant (infertility) if the infection is severe or recurrent.

A healthcare provider can diagnose candidiasis by performing a physical examination and taking a sample of vaginal discharge for testing. The provider may also take a culture of the yeast to determine which type of candida is causing the infection.

Candidiasis can be treated with antifungal medications, such as clotrimazole or terconazole. These medications are available over-the-counter or by prescription and come in creams, tablets, or suppositories. To help clear the infection, treatment may also include:

* Avoiding irritants such as douches, powders, or scented soaps
* Wearing loose-fitting clothing and cotton underwear
* Keeping the genital area clean and dry
* Avoiding sex during treatment

If left untreated, candidiasis can lead to complications such as:

* Recurrent infections
* Inflammation of the vulva (vulvodynia)
* Inflammation of the vagina (vaginitis)
* Pain during sex
* Difficulty getting pregnant (infertility)

To prevent candidiasis, women can take the following steps:

* Practice good hygiene by washing the genital area gently with soap and water
* Avoid using douches, powders, or scented soaps
* Wear loose-fitting clothing and cotton underwear
* Change out of wet or sweaty clothes as soon as possible
* Avoid sex during treatment for candidiasis.

With proper treatment, the prognosis for candidiasis is good. The infection usually clears up within a week or two with antifungal medication. However, recurrent infections can be more difficult to treat and may require longer courses of therapy. In some cases, candidiasis can lead to complications such as inflammation of the vulva or vagina, which can be more challenging to treat.

It is important for women to seek medical attention if they experience any symptoms of candidiasis, as early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent complications and improve outcomes.

Candidiasis, invasive is caused by the overgrowth of Candida in the body, which can occur for a variety of reasons, such as:

* Weakened immune system due to HIV/AIDS, cancer, or medications that suppress the immune system.
* Invasive medical devices, such as central lines or implanted pacemakers.
* Previous history of invasive candidiasis.
* Pregnancy.
* Intravenous drug use.

The symptoms of candidiasis, invasive can vary depending on the organs affected, but may include:

* Fever.
* Chills.
* Shortness of breath.
* Pain in the abdomen or chest.
* Confusion or disorientation.
* Skin rash or lesions.

Diagnosis of candidiasis, invasive is based on a combination of physical examination, medical history, and laboratory tests, such as blood cultures and imaging studies. Treatment typically involves the use of antifungal medications, which may be given intravenously or orally, depending on the severity of the infection. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary to monitor and treat the infection.

Prevention of candidiasis, invasive includes:

* Proper hygiene and handwashing practices.
* Avoiding close contact with individuals who have invasive candidiasis.
* Avoiding sharing of personal items, such as toothbrushes or razors.
* Avoiding the use of invasive medical devices, if possible.
* Proper care and maintenance of medical devices.
* Monitoring for signs of infection in individuals with weakened immune systems.

In conclusion, candidiasis, invasive is a serious and potentially life-threatening fungal infection that can affect various organs and systems in the body. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent complications and improve outcomes. Proper prevention and control measures can help reduce the risk of developing invasive candidiasis.

The infection is usually caused by an overgrowth of Candida, which is a normal flora in the mouth, but can become pathogenic under certain conditions. Risk factors for developing OC include taking antibiotics, wearing dentures, pregnancy, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS.

OC can be diagnosed by examining the mouth and throat with a mirror and torch, as well as through laboratory tests such as cultures or PCR. Treatment typically involves antifungal medication, good oral hygiene practices, and addressing any underlying conditions. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary.

Preventative measures include practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding smoking, and managing any underlying medical conditions. In addition, early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the body, such as the bloodstream or heart.

The most common types of mycoses include:

1. Ringworm: This is a common fungal infection that causes a ring-shaped rash on the skin. It can affect any part of the body, including the arms, legs, torso, and face.
2. Athlete's foot: This is a common fungal infection that affects the feet, causing itching, redness, and cracking of the skin.
3. Jock itch: This is a fungal infection that affects the groin area and inner thighs, causing itching, redness, and cracking of the skin.
4. Candidiasis: This is a fungal infection caused by Candida, a type of yeast. It can affect various parts of the body, including the mouth, throat, and vagina.
5. Aspergillosis: This is a serious fungal infection that can affect various parts of the body, including the lungs, sinuses, and brain.

Symptoms of mycoses can vary depending on the type of infection and the severity of the infection. Common symptoms include itching, redness, swelling, and cracking of the skin. Treatment for mycoses usually involves antifungal medications, which can be applied topically or taken orally. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary to monitor and treat the infection.

Preventive measures for mycoses include practicing good hygiene, avoiding sharing personal items such as towels and clothing, and using antifungal medications as prescribed by a healthcare professional. Early diagnosis and treatment of mycoses can help prevent complications and reduce the risk of transmission to others.

The symptoms of candidiasis, cutaneous may include:

* Redness and swelling on the affected area
* Itching and burning sensation
* Thickening and discoloration of the skin
* Cracks or fissures in the skin

Candidiasis, cutaneous can be diagnosed through a physical examination and may require additional tests such as a skin scraping or biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment typically involves antifungal medications and good wound care. In severe cases, hospitalization may be required.

Prevention is key in avoiding candidiasis, cutaneous. Good hygiene practices such as frequent handwashing, keeping the skin clean and dry, and avoiding sharing personal items can help reduce the risk of infection. Additionally, managing underlying conditions such as diabetes and taking antibiotics only when necessary can also help prevent candidiasis, cutaneous.
