Analysis of Candida glabrata strains with reduced sensitivity to micafungin in vitro isolated from a patient with persistent Candidemia. (5/130)

We report the appearance of Candida glabrata strains with reduced sensitivity during treatment with the echinocandin drug micafungin (MCF). Four C. glabrata strains were isolated from sputum, gastric juice, and blood taken from a patient during hospitalization. Two of these strains, one of which was obtained after treatment with MCF for suspected Candida pneumonia and the other of which was obtained during MCF treatment for candidemia, were isolated from blood and found to have a reduced susceptibility to MCF. These two clinical isolates showed a high minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for MCF, with this change in MIC being unique for MCF among established antifungal drugs. To further investigate the mechanism underlying this reduced sensitivity, an in vivo mouse infection model and in vitro enzymatic analysis were performed. MCF had little effect in the mouse disseminated infection model and enzymatic analysis showed the low affinity of MCF to the 1,3-Beta-D-glucan synthase of the clinical isolates, although the enzymes of both clinical isolates and control strain were noncompetitively inhibited by MCF. Taken together, this low affinity of MCF for the enzymes is likely to cause the reduced sensitivities. These data further indicate that MCF could induce acquired MCF-resistant strains during clinical use.  (+info)

Infection represents a frequent complication among patients in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and mortality is high. In particular, the incidence of fungal infections, especially due to Candida spp., has been increasing during the last years. In a retrospective study we studied the etiology of candidemia in critically ill patients over a five-year period (1999-2003) in the ICU of the San Martino University Hospital in Genoa, Italy. In total, 182 episodes of candidaemia were identified, with an average incidence of 2.22 episodes/10 000 patient-days/year (range 1.25-3.06 episodes). Incidence of candidemia increased during the study period from 1.25 in 1999 to 3.06/10 000 patient-days/year in 2003. Overall, 40% of the fungemia episodes (74/182) were due to C.albicans, followed by C. parapsilosis(23%), C.glabrata (15%), C.tropicalis (9%) and other species (13%). Candidemia due to non-albicans species increased and this was apparently correlated with an increasing use of azoles for prophylaxis or empirical
Candidemia is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in the healthcare setting. However, there is limited information about risk factors for such infection among elderly patients. A case-control study was conducted during the period 2008-2011. For each case, two controls were selected among patients admitted to the same hospital, and individually matched by sex, age, time of admission, hospital ward and hospitalisation duration. The adjusted odds ratio (OR) was calculated using multiple conditional logistic regression. We identified 145 episodes of candidemia occurring in 140 patients with a median age of 80 years. Candida albicans caused 55% of all candidemia episodes. After adjustment, candidemia was strongly associated with duration of total [duration , 7 days: OR = 20.09; 95% confidence interval (CI): 3.44-117.52] and peripheral parenteral nutrition (duration , 7 days: OR = 26.83; 95% CI: 6.54-110.17), other central vascular catheters (OR = 5.17; 95% CI: 1.24-23.54) and glycopeptide ...
We reviewed 62 episodes (from 59 infants) of neonatal candidemia that occurred between January 1994 and June 1999. Except 5 term babies, all infants were premature (median gestational age [GA], 30 weeks) and birth weight was less than 2500 g (median, 1300 g). Most infants had reported risk factors and other neonatal problems. The age at onset of candidemia ranged from 15 to 173 days with a median of 34 days. In addition to catheter removal, all but one infants received antifungal agents and candidemia was eradicated subsequently in 46 episodes (75%). Eighteen infants with 19 episodes ever received fluconazole therapy. Fluconazole was administered as the first line agent in 6 episodes and successfully cleared candidemia in 5 episodes. Fluconazole was used as an alternative agent in an additional 13 episodes after amphotericin B (am B) +/- flucytosine were given for a period without a satisfactory result and eradication of candidemia was achieved in 8 episodes subsequently. All 18 infants ...
We conducted prospective, active population-based surveillance for candidemia (defined as any Candida species isolated from blood) in Atlanta and San Francisco (total population, 5.34 million) during 1992-1993. The average annual incidence of candidemia at both sites was 8 per 100,000 population. The highest incidence (75 per 100,000) occurred among infants ⩽1 year old. In 19% of patients, candidemia developed prior to or on the day of admission. Underlying medical conditions included cancer (26%), abdominal surgery (14%), diabetes mellitus (13%), and human immunodeficiency virus infection (10%). In 47% of cases, species of Candida other than Candida albicans were isolated, most commonly Candida parapsilosis, Candida glabrata, and Candida tropicalis. Antifungal susceptibility testing of 394 isolates revealed minimal levels of azole resistance among C. albicans, C. tropicalis, and C. parapsilosis. These data document the substantial burden of candidemia and its changing epidemiology. Continued ...
Candida albicans, a constituent of normal microbial flora of human mucosal surfaces, is a major cause of candidemia in immunocompromised individuals and hospitalized patients with other debilitating diseases. Molecular fingerprinting studies have suggested nosocomial transmission of C. albicans based on the presence of clusters or endemic genotypes in some hospitals. However, intrahospital strain transmission or a common source of infection has not been firmly established. We performed multilocus sequence typing (MLST) on 102 C. albicans bloodstream isolates (representing 92% of all culture-confirmed candidemia patients over a 31-month period at seven major hospitals) to identify patient-to-patient transmission or infection from a common source in Kuwait, a small country in the Middle East where consanguineous marriages are common. Repeat bloodstream isolates from six patients and nine surveillance cultures from other anatomic sites from six patients were also analyzed. Fifty-five isolates belonged to

In a previous edition of Critical Care, Shorr and colleagues developed a simple weight risk score for identifying patients with candidemia upon hospital admission [1]. Using recursive partitioning, they determined the best discriminators of Candida bloodstream infections in patients upon hospitalization (identified as a positive blood culture 1 day prior to or 2 days after admission) by retrospectively reviewing the CareFusion Outcomes Research Database, comprising 64,109 bloodstream infection cases admitted to 176 acute care hospitals from 2000 to 2005. Three sets of models were applied (equal weight, unequal weight, and full weight with additional variables) for sensitivity analysis. The risk score was then validated using the 2006/2007 year cohort for a total of 24,685 bloodstream infections.. The rate of candidemia was 1.2% of all bloodstream infections for the 5-year derivation cohort, and was 1.3% for the validation cohort. The rate was increased to 2.3% and 3.1%, respectively, for those ...
Population-based surveillance for candidemia in Australia from 2001 to 2004 identified 1,095 cases. Annual overall and hospital-specific incidences were 1.81/100,000 and 0.21/1,000 separations (completed admissions), respectively. Predisposing factors included malignancy (32.1%), indwelling vascular catheters (72.6%), use of antimicrobial agents (77%), and surgery (37.1%). Of 919 episodes, 81.5% were inpatient healthcare associated (IHCA), 11.6% were outpatient healthcare associated (OHCA), and 6.9% were community acquired (CA). Concomitant illnesses and risk factors were similar in IHCA and OHCA candidemia. IHCA candidemia was associated with sepsis at diagnosis ( ...
Candida albicans can cause candidemia in neutropenic and critically ill patients and oropharyngeal candidiasis in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients with low CD4(+) counts. Because all patients at risk do not develop Candida infections, it is possible that a patients genetic background might play a role in his or her susceptibility to infection. Autophagy mediates pathogen clearance and modulation of inflammation. Our aim was to assess the effect of genetic variations in the ATG16L1 and IRGM autophagy genes on the susceptibility of patients with candidemia and oropharyngeal candidiasis. We assessed genetic variations in the ATG16L1 and IRGM genes in a cohort of candidemia patients of both African and European origin. In addition, we evaluated the effect of these polymorphisms on the susceptibility to oropharyngeal candidiasis of an HIV-positive cohort from Tanzania. Functional studies have been performed to assess the effect of the ATG16L1 and IRGM genetic variants on both in ...

The annual incidence of candidemia in Iceland increased from 1.4 cases/100,000 inhabitants/year during 1980-1984 to 5.3 cases/100,000 inhabitants/year during 2000-2006 (p,0.001), with the greatest increase in incidence occurring among infants ,1 year of age and the elderly (age, ,60 years). C. albicans was the predominant species responsible (61.6%). The national import of fluconazole increased approximately 5.5-fold from 1991 through 2006, but increased resistance to this agent was not observed. Most cases occurred in intensive care units (35.8%) and surgical wards (30.1%). In multivariate analysis, prompt removal of central venous catheters (odds ratio [OR], for death, 0.22) and septic shock (OR for death, 8.01) were the strongest independent predictors of outcome. PCR fingerprinting of Candida BSIs (n=219) from 94.4% of cases during 1991-2006 revealed temporo-spatial associations between 18.7-39.9% of all infections, suggestive of nosocomial clustering. When the virulence of C. albicans and ...

Candidemia as a model disease for infectious disease Candidemia is a systemic fungal infection in the bloodstream, mainly caused by Candida albicans; it leads to approximately 150,000 deaths worldwide every year. The only treatments are anti-fungal drugs, which are often ineffective. However, it is difficult to develop new treatment options with our limited knowledge of the host genetic susceptibility factors and their impact on host-Candida interactions, which are central to the development of candidemia. We hypothesize that comprehensive characterization of the genetic and molecular basis of the Candida-specific immune response will pinpoint key susceptibility factors. Identifying the susceptibility pathways will aid the development of new therapies for candidemia. Currently we are testing our hypothesis by ...
The use of improved microbiological procedures associated with molecular techniques has increased the identification of Candida bloodstream infections, even if the isolation of more than one species by culture methods remains uncommon. We report the cases of two children presenting with severe gastrointestinal disorders and other risk factors that contribute to Candida infections. in the first patient, C. albicans DNA was initially detected by a nested-amplification and C. tropicalis was found later during hospitalization, while blood cultures were persistently negative. in the second child, there was amplification of C. albicans and C. glabrata DNA in the same samples, but blood cultures yielded only C. albicans. Both patients received antifungal therapy but had unfavorable outcomes. These two cases illustrate that PCR was more successful than culture methods in detecting Candida in the bloodstream of high risk children, and was also able to detect the presence of more than one species in the ...

The incidence of invasive fungal infections is increasing in many hospitals. The National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance (NNIS) program for U.S. hospitals documented a doubling in the rate of nosocomial fungal infections between 1980 and 1990 (4). From 1995 to 1996, Candida species was the fourth most common cause of nosocomial bloodstream infections (BSIs) in the United States (13). In recent years, some studies have reported an increase of candidemia due to Candida non-albicans species, with the threat of increased mortality and antifungal drug resistance (1, 10, 16, 21). The epidemiology of candidemia has been studied primarily in selected hospitals (2, 7, 22); few studies have focused on this problem on a nationwide basis (15, 17). The purpose of this study was to examine candidemia in Iceland during a 20-year period with respect to epidemiology and clinical mycology.

Despite being associated with a high mortality and economic burden, data regarding candidemia are scant in Algeria. The aim of this study was to unveil the epidemiology of candidemia in Algeria, evaluate the antifungal susceptibility pattern of causative agents and understand the molecular mechanisms of antifungal resistance where applicable. Furthermore, by performing environmental screening and microsatellite typing we sought to identify the source of infection. We performed a retrospective epidemiological-based surveillance study and collected available blood yeast isolates recovered from the seven hospitals in Algiers. To identify the source of infection, we performed environmental screening from the hands of healthcare workers (HCWs) and high touch areas. Species identification was performed by API Auxa-Color and MALDI-TOF MS and ITS sequencing was performed for species not reliably identified by MALDI-TOF MS. Antifungal susceptibility testing followed CLSI M27-A3/S4 and included all blood and

Abstract: The C. parapsilosis sensu lato group involves three closely related species, C. parapsilosis sensu stricto, C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis. Although their overall clinical importance is dramatically increasing, there are few studies regarding the virulence properties of the species of the psilosis complex. In this study, we tested 63 C. parapsilosis sensu stricto, 12 C. metapsilosis and 18 C. orthopsilosis isolates for the ability to produce extracellular proteases, secrete lipases and form pseudohyphae. Significant differences were noted between species, with the C. metapsilosis strains failing to secrete lipase or to produce pseudohyphae. Nine different clinical isolates each of C. parapsilosis sensu stricto, C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were co-cultured with immortalized murine or primary human macrophages. C. parapsilosis sensu stricto isolates showed a significantly higher resistance to killing by primary human macrophages compared to C. orthopsilosis and C. ...

Introduction. Invasive infections caused by Candida spp. in critically ill patients may significantly worsen their prognosis, so it is of great importance to establish an early detection and a suitable therapeutic strategy. The objective of this study was to define the differential role of echinocandins in treating certain critical patient profiles.Methodology. A scientific committee of 9 experts in infectious diseases, critical care, microbiology, and hospital pharmacy reviewed the existing evidence on the treatment of candidemia and invasive candidiasis in critically ill patients. After that, a questionnaire with 35 items was elaborated to be agreed by 26 specialists in the aforementioned disciplines using a modified Delphi method.Results. After two rounds of evaluation, a consensus was reached in terms of agreement in 66% of the items.

This study will create an international multi-center cohort of children with new clinical concern for infection while in the hospital. Sites used are part of the International Pediatric Fungal Network (ipfn.org). The study plans to prospectively enroll pediatric patients at high-risk of developing invasive candidiasis over a four year period. The study duration per subject will be up to 14 days for blood collection and 30 days for data collection from the medical record.. For the first aim, this study will assemble a prospective cohort of pediatric patients at high-risk for developing invasive candidiasis. Blood samples for biomarker testing will be obtained within 24-hours of a patient having a clinical indication for blood culture attainment. To accomplish the second aim, additional blood sampling will be performed in the sub-set of patients that are found to have invasive candidiasis. For the third aim, remnant blood samples following biomarker testing from all consenting participants will be ...
Invasive candidiasis is associated with high mortality, particularly in adults. Retrospective studies show that shorter times to treatment are correlated with a lower risk of death. A number of factors can be used to predict which patients would benefit from antifungal prophylaxis or early (pre-emptive or empirical) therapy. Detection of the fungal cell wall component (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan (BDG) shows promise as an early biomarker of invasive fungal infection and may be useful in identifying patients who would benefit from early antifungal treatment. To date, no consistent early treatment strategy has evolved. Proof-of-concept studies are needed to assess the role of pre-emptive and empirical therapy in ICU patients and the relevance of BDG as an early marker of infection ...

Symptoms of cadidiasis vary based on the area infected, although most infections result in such minimal symptoms as redness, itching and discomfort. In immunocompotent patients - those displaying a normal immune system response - cadidiasis is generally a localized infection of the skin or mucosal membranes, such as the mouth, the pharynx or eosophagus, the bladder, or the genitals. It can effect the eosophagus, which carries the risk of becoming a systemic infection. Systemic candidiasis can lead to candidemia, a much more severe form of infection with more complex complications ...

BACKGROUND: Candida bloodstream infection is associated with high mortality. Infectious disease consultation improves outcomes in several infections, including Staphylococcus aureus and cryptococcosis, as well as multidrug-resistant organisms. We aimed to examine the association between infectious disease consultation and differences in management with mortality in candida bloodstream infections.. METHODS: In this retrospective, single-centre cohort study, we reviewed the medical charts of all patients admitted to Barnes-Jewish Hospital (St Louis, MO, USA), a tertiary referral centre, aged 18 years or older with candida bloodstream infection from 2002 to 2015. We collected data for demographics, comorbidities, predisposing factors, all-cause mortality, antifungal use, central-line removal, and ophthalmological and echocardiographic evaluation to assess 90-day all-cause mortality between individuals with and without an infectious disease consultation. For the survival analysis we used Cox ...
An 18-month epidemiologic investigation of Candida bloodstream infections in a Singapore hospital identified 52 candidemic patients: 36% of whose infections were caused by C. tropicalis, 29% were due to C. albicans, 10% with C. parapsilosis and 21% involved C. glabrata. A predominant clonal C. tropicalis strain was demonstrated. No association with ICU stay, prior exposure to fluconazole/broad-spectrum antibiotics or increased mortality was found in this apparent shift towards non-C. albicans Candida species as the primary agents of candidemia ...
Background: Use of fluconazole (FLU) in treatment of candidemia has been questioned due to variations in in-vitro susceptibilities of different Candida species to FLU. Significance of in-vitro differences on patient outcomes and efficacy of FLU for C. glabrata fungemia (Cg) remains unknown. The objective was to determine how frequently antifungal treatment is changed among patients diagnosed with Cg; and to evaluate outcome of patients with Cg, treated with FLU regimen (FR) vs non-FLU regimen (NFR). Methods: Patients with candidemia at St. John Hospital were identified by review of microbiology from February 2003 until February 2006. Following data was collected on patients with Cg: age, gender, comorbid illness, risk factors for candidemia, duration of infection, antifungal therapy (dose, duration and changes made in response to culture results), and patient outcomes. Cg patients were compared with age and gender matched control patients with C. albicans fungemia (Ca). Results: Among 152 ...
2. Plasma (1→3)-ß-D-glucan and fungal antigenemia in patients with candidemia, aspergillosis, and cryptococcosis.. T Miyazaki, S Kohno, K Mitsutake, S Maesaki, K Tanaka, N Ishikawa, and K Hara. Second Department of Internal Medicine, Nagasaki University School of Medicine, Japan. (1→3)-ß-D-Glucan is one of the major structural components of fungi, and it seems that it can be detected by the fractionated (1→3)-ß-D-glucan-sensitive component from a Limulus lysate, factor G. We evaluated the concentration of (1→3)-ß-D-glucan by using factor G and other fungal antigens in 24 patients with clinical evidence of mycosis and 36 healthy subjects. The mean concentration of (1→3)-ß-D-glucan in the plasma of the healthy subjects was found to be 2.7 +/- 1.9 pg/mL (range, < 6.9 pg/mL), and it was found to be substantially higher in all 11 patients with candidemia (mean, 2,207.4 pg/mL; range, 325.4 to 8,449.0 pg/mL). Eight of those 11 patients with candidemia (73%) were positive for the Cand-Tec ...

Although the diagnostic performance for all tests were modest in regards to the detection of invasive candidiasis in patients in a high-risk intensive care unit (ICU), the combination of the new test T2Candida and blood culture seemed to have the best performance, according to a study published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases.. Blood culture is the gold standard test for invasive candidiasis, comprising candidemia and deep-seated candidiasis, but the sensitivity of this test is low. The average time to blood culture positivity is approximately 2 days, and some studies have associated a 2-day antifungal therapy delay with a more than doubled mortality rate. There is, therefore, a need for rapid diagnostic testing in invasive candidiasis.. ...
Very strong in vitro proteinase activity was detected in all isolates of C. parapsilosis sensu stricto and C. orthopsilosis, whereas only two isolates of C. metapsilosis showed positive enzymatic activity. Treviño-Rangel et al.2 also observed proteinase activity in three species of the complex. Several studies have shown that Candida parapsilosis complex species express different proteinase activities. Silva et al.6 found positive protease activity in 37.7% isolates of C. parapsilosis sensu stricto; however, only 7.8% of the isolates revealed high enzymatic activity. Furthermore, none of the C. metapsilosis and C. orthopsilosis isolates exhibited protease activity in that study.. Some studies on the virulence of Candida species verified that few isolates of the C. parapsilosis complex have proteinase activity, regardless of whether the isolation site was nail or blood1,7. Our research identified significantly higher enzymatic activity of proteinase in isolates from blood than from nails (Figure ...
Thrombocytopenia is used as an early marker of sepsis in neonate. Fungal sepsis is associated with greater degree of thrombocytopenia than is seen with either gram positive or gram negative organisms.
The blood culture test market is categorized on the basis of methods, products, applications, end users, and regions. Factors such as increasing demand for rapid diagnostic techniques, high prevalence of infectious diseases, increase in healthcare expenditure and rising aging population are driving the growth of this market. Moreover, increasing blood stream infections (BSI) is another major factor propelling the growth of this market. According to the U.S. CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention), catheter-related blood stream infection (CRBSI) is the most common cause for healthcare-associated blood stream infection. Around 12% to 25% of patients who acquire BSI die every year while some of them have to prolong their hospital stay leading to increase in the overall treatment cost. A treatment of CRBSI can cost up to $56,000, once the cost of pharmacy increases, the cost of catheter and additional diagnostic tests also increases which leads to the increase in the overall healthcare cost ...
