Poor outcome of autologous stem cell transplantation for adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma: a case report and review of the literature. (1/3054)

A limited number of patients with adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) who received autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) have been reported. We report here a case of fatal systemic Candida krusei infection in a female patient with ATL undergoing ASCT. All of the eight patients (including seven patients in the literature) with ATL who received ASCT developed relapse of ATL or death due to ASCT complication, irrespective of subtype or remission state of ATL, source or selection of SCT or conditioning regimen. At present, ASCT appears to provide little benefit for ATL in contrast to that for other types of aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.  (+info)

Systemic candidiasis with candida vasculitis due to Candida kruzei in a patient with acute myeloid leukaemia. (2/3054)

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

In-vivo therapeutic efficacy in experimental murine mycoses of a new formulation of deoxycholate-amphotericin B obtained by mild heating. (3/3054)

Heat-induced 'superaggregation' of deoxycholate-amphotericin B (AmB-DOC, Fungizone) was shown previously to reduce the in-vitro toxicity of this antifungal agent. We compared AmB-DOC with the formulation obtained by heating the commercial form (Fungizone, Bristol Myers Squibb, Paris, France) for 20 min at 70 degrees C, in the treatment of murine infections. An improvement of antifungal activity was obtained with heated AmB-DOC formulations due to a lower toxicity which allowed the administration of higher drug doses than those achievable with the commercial preparation. Single intravenous injections of heated AmB-DOC solutions were demonstrated to be two-fold less toxic than unheated ones to healthy mice. For mice infected with Candida albicans, the maximum tolerated dose was higher with heated than with unheated AmB-DOC solutions. In the model of murine candidiasis, following a single dose of heated AmB-DOC 0.5 mg/kg, 85% of mice survived for 3 weeks, whereas at this dose the immediate toxicity of the standard formulation in infected mice restricted the therapeutic efficacy to 25% survival. Both formulations were equally effective in increasing the survival time for murine cryptococcal pneumonia and meningoencephalitis. Injection of heated AmB-DOC solutions at a dose two-fold higher than the maximal tolerated dose observed with the unheated preparation (1.2 mg/kg) increased the survival time by a factor of 1.4 in cryptococcal meningoencephalitis. These results indicate that mild heat treatment of AmB-DOC solutions could provide a simple and economical method to improve the therapeutic index of this antifungal agent by reducing its toxicity on mammalian cells.  (+info)

Adhesive and mammalian transglutaminase substrate properties of Candida albicans Hwp1. (4/3054)

The pathogenesis of candidiasis involves invasion of host tissues by filamentous forms of the opportunistic yeast Candida albicans. Morphology-specific gene products may confer proinvasive properties. A hypha-specific surface protein, Hwp1, with similarities to mammalian small proline-rich proteins was shown to serve as a substrate for mammalian transglutaminases. Candida albicans strains lacking Hwp1 were unable to form stable attachments to human buccal epithelial cells and had a reduced capacity to cause systemic candidiasis in mice. This represents a paradigm for microbial adhesion that implicates essential host enzymes.  (+info)

Serum is more suitable than whole blood for diagnosis of systemic candidiasis by nested PCR. (5/3054)

PCR assays for the diagnosis of systemic candidiasis can be performed either on serum or on whole blood, but results obtained with the two kinds of samples have never been formally compared. Thus we designed a nested PCR assay in which five specific inner pairs of primers were used to amplify specific targets on the rRNA genes of Candida albicans, C. tropicalis, C. parapsilosis, C. krusei, and C. glabrata. In vitro, the lower limit of detection of each nested PCR assay was 1 fg of purified DNA from the corresponding Candida species. In rabbits with candidemia of 120 minutes' duration following intravenous (i.v.) injection of 10(8) CFU of C. albicans, the sensitivities of the PCR in serum and whole blood were not significantly different (93 versus 86%). In other rabbits, injected with only 10(5) CFU of C. albicans, detection of candidemia by culture was possible for only 1 min, whereas DNA could be detected by PCR in whole blood and in serum for 15 and 150 min, respectively. PCR was more often positive in serum than in whole blood in 40 culture-negative samples (27 versus 7%; P < 0.05%). Lastly, experiments with rabbits injected i.v. with 20 or 200 microgram of purified C. albicans DNA showed that PCRs were positive in serum from 30 to at least 120 min after injection, suggesting that the clearance of free DNA is slow. These results suggest that serum is the sample of choice, which should be used preferentially over whole blood for the diagnosis of systemic candidiasis by PCR.  (+info)

Development and characterization of complex DNA fingerprinting probes for the infectious yeast Candida dubliniensis. (6/3054)

Using a strategy to clone large genomic sequences containing repetitive elements from the infectious yeast Candida dubliniensis, the three unrelated sequences Cd1, Cd24, and Cd25, with respective molecular sizes of 15,500, 10,000, and 16,000 bp, were cloned and analyzed for their efficacy as DNA fingerprinting probes. Each generated a complex Southern blot hybridization pattern with endonuclease-digested genomic DNA. Cd1 generated an extremely variable pattern that contained all of the bands of the pattern generated by the repeat element RPS of Candida albicans. We demonstrated that Cd1 does not contain RPS but does contain a repeat element associated with RPS throughout the C. dubliniensis genome. The Cd1 pattern was the least stable over time both in vitro and in vivo and for that reason proved most effective in assessing microevolution. Cd24, which did not exhibit microevolution in vitro, was highly variable in vivo, suggesting in vivo-dependent microevolution. Cd25 was deemed the best probe for broad epidemiological studies, since it was the most stable over time, was the only truly C. dubliniensis-specific probe of the three, generated the most complex pattern, was distributed throughout all C. dubliniensis chromosomes, and separated a worldwide collection of 57 C. dubliniensis isolates into two distinct groups. The presence of a species-specific repetitive element in Cd25 adds weight to the already substantial evidence that C. dubliniensis represents a bona fide species.  (+info)

Candidemia at selected Canadian sites: results from the Fungal Disease Registry, 1992-1994. Fungal Disease Registry of the Canadian Infectious Disease Society. (7/3054)

BACKGROUND: Candida species are important bloodstream pathogens that are being isolated with increasing frequency. Despite the availability of effective antifungal therapy, the mortality rate associated with Candida infection remains high. With the objective of describing the epidemiology of candidemia, the Canadian Infectious Disease Society conducted a study of candidemia in Canada. METHODS: Fourteen medical centres across Canada identified all patients with candidemia from March 1992 to February 1994 through blood culture surveillance for Candida spp. Patient-related data for invasive fungal infection were compiled retrospectively by chart review using a standardized data-recording form developed for the Fungal Disease Registry of the Canadian Infectious Disease Society. Cases of Candidemia were studied in relation to underlying medical conditions, predisposing factors, concurrent infection, antimicrobial agents, antifungal treatment and deaths. RESULTS: In total, 415 cases of candidemia were identified, 48 (11.6%) in children and 367 (88.4%) in adults. The causative pathogens were C. albicans in 286 cases (68.9%), C. parapsilosis in 43 (10.4%), C. glabrata in 34 (8.2%), C. tropicalis in 27 (6.5%) and other Candida species in 18 (4.3%); polymicrobial candidemia occurred in 7 cases (1.7%). The overall mortality rate was 46%, and the rate of deaths clinically related to candidemia was 19%. However, only 13 (27%) of the children died. A univariate analysis indicated that significant risk factors for death were age greater than 60 years, therapy for concomitant bacterial infection, stay in an intensive care unit, concurrent malignant disease, cytotoxic chemotherapy and granulocytopenia, although only age and stay in an intensive care unit emerged as significant risk factors in the multivariate analysis. After adjustment for other predictors of death, only infection with C. parapsilosis was associated with a lower mortality rate than infection with C. albicans. Treatment was given in 352 (84.8%) of cases. Amphotericin B was the preferred agent in 244 cases (69.3% of those treated); fluconazole was used in 101 cases (28.7%) and ketoconazole in 5 cases (1.4%). INTERPRETATION: Candidemia in Canada is caused predominantly by C. albicans. The mortality rate associated with candidemia is high, but it varies with the species of Candida and is lower in children than in adults. Age greater than 60 years and stay in an intensive care unit were the most significant risk factors for overall mortality.  (+info)

Candida dubliniensis candidemia in patients with chemotherapy-induced neutropenia and bone marrow transplantation. (8/3054)

The recently described species Candida dubliniensis has been recovered primarily from superficial oral candidiasis in HIV-infected patients. No clinically documented invasive infections were reported until now in this patient group or in other immunocompromised patients. We report three cases of candidemia due to this newly emerging Candida species in HIV-negative patients with chemotherapy-induced immunosuppression and bone marrow transplantation.  (+info)

Acute disseminated candidiasis, or invasive candidiasis, is a fungal infection of Candida spp. It usually presents as candidemia and progresses to several viscera (ie, liver, kidney, spleen, eyes, brain, and heart). Candida spp are among the most common causes of nosocomial bloodstream infections typically introduced from the gastrointestinal tract or from venous catheters.1 Clinical manifestations of candidiasis can be nonspecific but may include unresolved fever and may progress to sepsis. Definitive diagnosis requires histopathologic confirmation, but presumptive diagnosis is used frequently in high-risk immunosuppressed or neutropenic patients. Pharmacologic intervention is required with a confirmed positive culture, and catheter removal is recommended for suspected infections.2 The most common pathogen for invasive candidiasis is C albicans (41%-65%); however, non-albicans Candida spp resistant to conventional treatments have emerged as prevalent causes of candidiasis, including C ...
Systemic Candida infections are usually encountered as opportunistic infections in a setting of immunologic depression. Sepsis or arthritis due to Candida is not expected in healthy people. Epstein-Barr virus may infect B cells, but does not cause immunosuppression of any clinical significance. As far as we know, invasive non-albicans Candida infection complicating Epstein-Barr virus infection has not been reported in previously healthy children. In this report, two previously healthy children, one with sepsis due to Candida species and the other sepsis and arthritis due to Candida parapsilosis are described. Both patients were male and were aged 2 and 9 y. The diagnosis was confirmed by culture. Both children also had coincidental acute Epstein-Barr virus infection, confirmed by Epstein-Barr virus viral capside antigen-IgM. They were both cured with fluconazole given for 21 days and 48 days, respectively ...

Utilization of High Value Targets based on Disease Pathogenetics Expands Horizon. Several trends and factors underlie the rising prospects of the global candidiasis drugs market. The increasing of fungal infections characterized by life-threatening predisposing factors is a key factor propelling growth in the candidiasis drugs market. Some of the key factors are immunosuppressive therapy, aging, AIDS, and diabetes. Growing number of studies that shed light on pathogenetic processes help in the development of anti-virulence agents used in candidiasis drugs. The candidiasis drugs market will make attractive strides in the near future, driven by researchers efforts to increase the efficacy of antifungal agents. This is also likely to improve the utilization of high value targets for the development of more effective candidiasis drugs. This will increasingly fuel in the market in the near future and create new avenues for market players to capitalize on. In recent years, there has been substantial ...
However when a Candida infection becomes systemic this means it has broken through the defensive barrier of the body at some point and has traveled through it, usually by way of the blood, to set up infections in organs or joints.. Systemic Candida can, and usually is, very serious. This is more so because often, as clinicians are aware, the disease takes advantage of the weakened condition of a patients immune system when they are already suffering from an existing disease. However there is also research to suggest that systemic infections can be set up by invasive surgery. This is usually surgery where replacement joints or other parts are inserted into the patients body, such as a hip or valve, and infections are transferred because biofilms are already in existence on part of the equipment used.. Biofilms, for those readers who are not aware, are made up of communities of microflora which reside in the body. In fact, biofilms can and do exist anywhere. For example, the plaque on your teeth ...

Fungal infections pose a significant public health burden with high morbidity and mortality. CD101 is a novel echinocandin under development for the treatment and prevention of systemic Candida infections. Preclinical studies were conducted to evaluate the metabolic stability, plasma protein binding, pharmacokinetics, toxicity, and efficacy of CD101 at various dose levels. CD101 was stable to biotransformation in rat/monkey/human liver microsomes and rat/monkey/dog/human hepatocytes. In vitro studies suggest minimal interaction with recombinant cytochrome P450 enzymes (IC50 values ,10 μM). Similar to anidulafungin, CD101 bound avidly (,98%) to human/mouse/rat/primate plasma proteins. In a 2-week, repeat-dose comparison study, CD101 was well tolerated in rats (no effects on body weight, hematology, coagulation, or urinalysis). By contrast, administration of anidulafungin (at comparable exposure levels) resulted in reduced body weight; decreases in red blood cell, hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean ...

At some time in their life the majority of the worlds population will have to deal with Candidiasis, also called a yeast infection. Many of us picture a womans affliction when we hear the words yeast infection. The reality is that everybody, young and mature, man and woman, can get this fungal affliction on many places in or on the body. People commonly get yeast infections on their hands and fingernails, on the feet and toes, and in other various areas where the skin is exposed to extra moisture and darkness, like the underarm area or, in females, the area between or below the breasts. So its crucial to know just what a yeast infection is now that we know that anyone can get one anywhere.. As the fungus develops and thrives on the body, the infection that results is known as Candidiasis. Interestingly enough, the term yeast infection is not a completely accurate description of the ailment. You see, fungus can form into either a yeast or a mold . Fungus that occurs singly is called yeast. ...
Kombucha is created by using tea (usually black or green), sugar, and a live starter known as a SCOBY. Each one of these ingredients can cause problems for someone dealing with any sort of digestive issues, for the following reasons:. • Black tea is very high in oxalates, which is a naturally occurring plant poison that looks like tiny shards of glass under a microscope. This is to deter insects from eating the plant, and is not harmful to humans IF the proper intestinal microbiota are in place. However, if a person has ever used antibiotics, experienced chronic stress, or had a diet high in sugar and fat, the delicate bacteria that is the primary consumer of oxalates is wiped out, which leave the intestinal system incapable of handling them safely and effectively. Anyone with a systemic Candida infection, leaky gut, kidney stones, fibromyalgia, COPD, asthma, cystic fribrosis, Hashimotos disease, or hypothyroidism should avoid high oxalates foods or beverages.. • Even though a lot of the ...

There are more than 20 kinds of yeast which can reside in humans. Theyre generally found in the intestinal tract but can also live around mucous membranes and on the skin. (2). When a particular event jeopardizes the immune system, the yeast multiplies uncontrollably, causing an infection. The primary locations can include the mouth, throat, esophagus, skin or vagina.. People who present a higher risk may include: those who regularly take antibiotics, are obese or suffer from diabetes. It is also more prevalent among pregnant women and those with an impaired immune system. (3). Yeast may also invade the bloodstream. This is called invasive candidiasis and can be life threatening if it reaches the heart or other vital organs. (4). Symptoms of different yeast infections are:. Rash. When a yeast fungus begins to infect the skin, it will typically trigger a red skin rash in the area. This is an inflammatory response from immune cells present on the surface which will try to fight off the ...

So … hands up, who knows about Candidiasis? Have you got it? Tricky question, I think. The chances are, if you have followed the standard Western diet for any real length of time during your life, youre a prime candidate. The diet that the majority of the population consider to be normal because they see the supermarket shelves stacked high with this convenience food and treats, is actually a silent killer of many.. Most have been brought up to look upon sugar products as treats. The associations alone are dangerous; unhealthy food is so often used as a bribe for children. This, combined with other environmental factors, is part of the reason why widely recognized diseases like cancer, heart disease, strokes, and diabetes (among others) are, in my opinion, so prolific. But this is not acknowledged nearly as often as it needs to be. We are still placing too much faith in the pharmaceutical industrys opinions and a good example of how these opinions are killing people daily is Candidiasis. I ...

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 ...

Water promotes good health in many ways, from reducing the risk of certain cancers to improving short-term memory and weight loss. For example, in a 10-year study of nearly 48,000 men, those who drank six eight-ounce glasses of water daily were half as likely to develop bladder cancer as those who drank just a glass a day. Although the study included only men (who run a higher risk of bladder cancer than women), drinking plenty of water and other fluids may well protect both sexes, says the studys lead author, Dominique Michaud, a researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health ...
So with all the tomatoes we were harvesting, we started drying the huge surplus. I have a 9-shelf excalibur food dehydrator and we kept that baby busy for weeks. Since we had so many tomatoes that were small like the cherries, the grape tomatoes and some tomato that was a bit smaller and just as meaty as the romas, that was what we principally dried. The larger tomatoes we saved for juice, pizza sauces, and homemade chili. Anyway, so the baskets of tomatoes were heaped when we were loading the dehydrator. We counted on one occasion 220+ small tomatoes, mostly grapes and small romas, for one load in the dehydrator. [Cut them in half or quarters so they would dry faster.] At the end of the summer before I returned to Korea, my bro told me my birthday present this year was 1,000 tomatoes and he gave me 5 3#-coconut oil containers filled with dried tomatoes!

The prolonged use of antibiotics can alter the intestinal flora, damaging some of the bacteria and leaving the way clear to the proliferation of candida. Similarly, food also plays an important role as an unbalanced diet may favor its development. The candida fungus thrives on all sugars and fermented substances. Therefore, all the major quantity of these substances comes to the biggest intestine it will be the risk of favoring the development of the candidiasis.. The use of clothing that is too tight, intimate gel too aggressive - may alter the vaginal pH, may also be behind the spread of this fungus. Another reason for development can be constipation, since when the problem continues can facilitate the transmission of candida from the intestine to the vaginal area. ...
Candidiasis is an infection caused by yeast called Candida. Candida normally causes no harm, and is found on the skin, vaginal area, and digestive system. But in some cases, it can overgrow. This can cause a rash, itching, and other symptoms.

However, the 2009 Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) candidiasis guidelines recommend an echinocandin for the treatment of candidemia/invasive candidiasis in patients who are considered to be moderately severe or severely ill. To validate these guidelines, clinical trial data were reviewed.Methods: A secondary analysis of data from a previously published prospective, randomized, double-blind ...
Invasive candidiasis differs greatly between children and neonates. We aimed to investigate the different therapeutic approaches and their effects on treatment outcomes of these two groups. Episodes of neonatal invasive candidiasis were compared with non-neonatal pediatric episodes during a 12-year cohort study. Clinical isolates were documented by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry and DNA sequencing, and antifungal susceptibility testing was performed. A total of 342 episodes of invasive candidiasis (113 neonatal and 229 non-neonatal pediatric episodes) in 281 pediatric patients (96 neonates and 185 children) were identified. Candida albicans was the most common pathogen causing invasive candidiasis in neonates and children (47.8% vs. 44.1%). The antifungal susceptibility profiles were not significantly different between neonates and children. More neonates received amphotericin B as therapy, whereas more children received fluconazole or caspofungin. Compared
The cutaneous manifestations of 18 infants treated for systemic candidiasis during a 3¾-year period were examined. Eight infants, with a mean birth weight of 712 ± 161 g, had a diffuse burn-like dermatitis, usually within the first three days of life. Candida pseudohyphae were identifiable on skin scrapings. A history of a maternal cerclage or intrauterine device complicated by chorioamnionitis was common. A delay in diagnosis or therapy resulted in mortality, whereas promptly treated infants survived. Nine additional infants had monilial diaper rashes, which spread to the trunk and extremities in four infants. These infants were older at the onset of the dermatitis, and all survived the systemic infection. Systemic candidiasis without any cutaneous involvement developed in only one infant. Candidiasis should be more frequently considered, and prompt systemic therapy should be instituted when cutaneous candidiasis occurs within the first few days of life in infants who weigh less than 1,500 ...
The measurement of serum arabinitol in the diagnosis of systemic candidosis was evaluated using a gas-liquid chromatography technique in a cohort of at risk patients. The prevalence of seropositivity was low and did not correlate with evidence of infection. This technique is unlikely to achieve acceptance because it does not discriminate between patients with and without infection; it requires specialised equipment and it is expensive.. ...
The title of the study will be Attributable mortality and Costs of Invasive Candida Infections in European hospitals: a prospective case-control study, and the study as well as the working group will be lead by PD Martin Hoenigl and Prof. Oliver Cornely. The case-control study will focus on evaluating attributable mortality and costs as well as diagnostic and therapeutic approaches (including prolonged hospital stay for completion of parenteral antifungal treatment) of nosocomial IC infections in Europe. As a secondary objective we will evaluate antifungal resistance among Candida spp. causing invasive diseases across Europe. In addition, the case control design will allow for implementation of health economic analyses on the incremental costs associated with IC infections ...
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.. ...
Oral candidiasis, also known as oral thrush among other names, is candidiasis that occurs in the mouth. That is, oral candidiasis is a mycosis (yeast/fungal infection) of Candida species on the mucous membranes of the mouth. Candida albicans is the most commonly implicated organism in this condition. C. albicans is carried in the mouths of about 50% of the worlds population as a normal component of the oral microbiota. This candidal carriage state is not considered a disease, but when Candida species become pathogenic and invade host tissues, oral candidiasis can occur. This change usually constitutes an opportunistic infection by normally harmless micro-organisms because of local (i.e., mucosal) or systemic factors altering host immunity. Oral candidiasis is a mycosis (fungal infection). Traditionally, oral candidiasis is classified using the Lehner system, originally described in the 1960s, into acute and chronic forms (see table). Some of the subtypes almost always occur as acute (e.g., ...

An in vitro model has been developed for study of cariogenic potential of different Candida species. Slices were prepared from the root of extracted healthy teeth. These disks were covered with inert material, only the central hole, i.e. the root canal dentin surface remained uncovered. These preparates with free root dentin surfaces were incubated in Sabouraud medium in the presence of six-six Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei, Candida inconspicua and Candida norvegensis strains. The calcium release was detected for 15 days. Two types of release could be distinguished. C. albicans deliberated calcium more aggressively (type A curve), while other Candidas were characterized by less expressed calcium releasing capacity (type B curve). Curves type A and B were divided into four steps in order to characterize more precisely the different dynamics of calcium release. Analyses of the different steps also suggested the more aggressive behaviour of C. ...

Men over 40 who have Type 2 diabetes may face an elevated risk for developing penile yeast-based infections. The word yeast infection generally identifies a vaginal infection caused by the yeast Candidiasis, and less commonly other Candida species, including C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis, C. tropicalis, and C. krusei.. A yeast infection of the penis is named candidal (or candida) balanitis, or balanitis thrush. Causes and Risk Factors of Candidal Balanitis or Penile CANDIDIASIS: Unlike with vaginal yeast-based infections, penile yeast-based infections are usually sexually acquired - whenever a man has sex with anyone who has an infection from yeast. Treating Penile Yeast Infections (CANDIDIASIS in Men)Like vaginal yeast-based infections, penile yeast-based infections are often treated with antifungal drugs called azoles.. Early symptoms of a penile candidiasis often include a red rash and sometimes white, shiny patches on the penis. The skin on the penis may be moist, and a thick white ...

New life-saving treatments for Hematological malignancies | neutropenia | chronic disseminated candidiasis | hematopoietic stem cell transplantation | invasive fungal disease in clinical trial on Hepatosplenic CANdidiasis : PETscan and Immune Response Analysis
We determined the pharmacodynamic parameter and the magnitude of that parameter that was predictive of the efficacy of fluconazole in the treatment of disseminated candidiasis. We used a neutropenic murine model of disseminated Candida albicans infection to characterize the time course of activity of fluconazole. Quantitation of colony counts in kidneys after 24 h of therapy with a wide range of doses and three dosing intervals was used to determine the dose required to achieve 50% of the maximal effect (ED50). The ED50 was similar for each of the dosing intervals studied, supporting the area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) MIC ratio as the parameter that predicts the efficacy of fluconazole. Similar studies were performed with C. albicans strains for which fluconazole MICs are in the susceptible-dose-dependent range (MICs, 16 to 32 mg/liter). We found that the magnitude of the AUC/MIC ratio required to reach the ED50 was similar for all three organisms studied, ranging from 12 to 25. ...
Epidemiology and risk factors for invasive candidiasis Nur Yapar Department of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine, Dokuz Eylül University, İzmir, Turkey Abstract: The number of immunosuppressive patients has increased significantly in recent years. These patients are at risk for opportunistic infections, especially fungal infections. Candidiasis is one of the most frequent fungal infections determined in these immunosuppressive patients and its epidemiology has changed over the last two decades. Recently, new antifungal agents and new therapy strategies such as antifungal prophylaxis, secondary prophylaxis, and preemptive therapy have come into use. These changes resulted in the alteration of Candida species causing invasive infections. The incidence of Candida albicans was decreased in many countries, especially among patients with immunosuppressive disorders, while the incidence of species other than C. albicans was increased. In this review, incidence, risk
Invasive mycoses are life-threatening opportunistic infections and have emerged as a major cause of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. This review focuses on recent advances in our understanding of the epidemiology, diagnosis and management of invasive candidiasis, which is the predominant fungal infection in the intensive care unit setting. Candida spp. are the fourth most common cause of bloodstream infections in the USA, but they are a much less common cause of bloodstream infections in Europe. About one-third of episodes of candidaemia occur in the intensive care unit. Until recently, Candida albicans was by far the predominant species, causing up to two-thirds of all cases of invasive candidiasis. However, a shift toward non-albicans Candida spp., such as C. glabrata and C. krusei, with reduced susceptibility to commonly used antifungal agents, was recently observed. Unfortunately, risk factors and clinical manifestations of candidiasis are not specific, and conventional culture
Candidiasis, also known as thrush, candidosis, moniliasis, and oidiomycosis, is a mycosis (fungal infections) caused by Candida albicans, one of the Candida species (all yeast). Candidiasis can occur in various parts of the body, including the male or female genital area. Thrush infections are relatively common in women and men. This article focuses on male thrush (penile yeast infection). Informally, male thrush is known as jock itch.. Candida naturally exists in several places in the body. When it is normally balanced by good bacteria, the level stays low and causes no problems. However, when this delicate balance is disturbed, the risk of developing a yeast infection rises significantly. The most common yeast infection is vaginal thrush. Male thrush or penile yeast infection is also fairly common.. A male can become infected with thrush if he has sexual intercourse with an infected sexual partner.. Treatment consists of over-the-counter (OTC) anti-fungal creams and ointments. People with a ...
The study presented here was performed in order to create a rule that identifies subjects at high risk for invasive candidiasis in the intensive care setting. Retrospective review and statistical modelling were carried out on 2,890 patients who stayed at least 4 days in nine hospitals in the USA and Brazil; the overall incidence of invasive candidiasis in this group was 3% (88 cases).

Candidalysin is a cytolytic peptide toxin secreted by the invasive form of the human pathogenic fungus, Candida albicans. Candidalysin is critical for mucosal and systemic infections and is a key driver of host cell activation, neutrophil recruitment and Type 17 immunity. Candidalysin is regarded as the first true classical virulence factor of C. albicans but also triggers protective immune responses. This review will discuss how candidalysin was discovered, the mechanisms by which this peptide toxin contributes to C. albicans infections, and how its discovery has advanced our understanding of fungal pathogenesis and disease.. ...

Different sorts of bacteria and fungi do live as well as grow upon ones skin. Ones body does require the majority of them to carry out normal functions. Yet, some can lead to infections when they tend to multiply uncontrollably.. The Candida fungus is considered to be one of the potentially harmful organisms. When one observes an overgrowth of Candida that develops on the skin then one also notices that an infection can also occur. This condition is usually referred to as candidiasis of the skin or even cutaneous candidiasis.. Candidiasis of the skin often does results in red, itchy rash to form and is also most common in the folds of ones skin. This rash can actually also spread to other parts of the body. While these symptoms are very bothersome, they can be treated with necessarily improved hygiene and along with antifungal creams or even powders.. ...
TY - GEN. T1 - Molecular Docking Analysis of Anti-Candida albicans Biomarkers in Sulawesi Propolis Against Secreted Aspartic Proteinase-5. AU - Flamandita, Darin. AU - Sahlan, Muhamad. AU - Lischer, Kenny. AU - Pratami, Diah Kartika. PY - 2019/12. Y1 - 2019/12. N2 - Candida albicans is an opportunistic pathogen which can cause conditions ranging from simple infections to death in immunosuppressed patients. The microorganism has virulence factors which allied to decrease host immunity response and make infection significantly by Secreted Aspartic Proteinase-5. However, the existing candidiasis drugs were less effective and emerge resistances due to the increase of drug exposure to the patients. Recently, Sulawesi propolis was known to have antimicrobial activity by the presence of flavonoids. The potentiality was then explored by in silico approach by the help of AutoDock Tools 1.5.6 to prepare the materials, AutoDock Vina to compute binding affinities and Ligplot to visualize the molecular ...

Immunological memory in vertebrates is often exclusively attributed to T and B cell function. Recently it was proposed that the enhanced and sustained innate immune responses following initial infectious exposure may also afford protection against reinfection. Testing this concept of trained immunity, we show that mice lacking functional T and B lymphocytes are protected against reinfection with Candida albicans in a monocyte-dependent manner. C. albicans and fungal cell wall β-glucans induced functional reprogramming of monocytes, leading to enhanced cytokine production in vivo and in vitro. The training required the β-glucan receptor dectin-1 and the noncanonical Raf-1 pathway. Monocyte training by β-glucans was associated with stable changes in histone trimethylation at H3K4, which suggests the involvement of epigenetic mechanisms in this phenomenon. The functional reprogramming of monocytes, reminiscent of similar NK cell properties, supports the concept of trained immunity and may be ...

A new genetic analysis of fungal yeast infections (candidiasis) from around the world has revealed surprising secrets about how these microbes reproduce and cause disease, according to a new study published in Current Biology from researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation.. Working together with researchers in the Université Paris-Sud in France and University Medical Centre Göttingen in Germany, ICREA Research Professor Toni Gabaldón and his team at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona read the genetic code of 33 separate strains of the yeast Candida glabrata, the second most common cause of candidiasis*.. They discovered that all the samples were very different from each other at a genetic level, particularly within genes encoding molecules that help the yeast to infect humans.. Until now, it was thought that C. glabrata only reproduced asexually by budding, even though the yeast contains genes required for sexual reproduction.. Gabaldón and his team found strong genetic ...
Candida parapsilosis is frequently isolated from hospital environments, like air and surfaces, and causes serious nosocomial infections. Molecular studies provided evidence of great genetic diversity within the C. parapsilosis species complex but, despite their growing importance as pathogens, little is known about their potential to cause disease, particularly their interactions with phagocytes. In this study, clinical and environmental C. parapsilosis isolates, and strains of the related species C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were assayed for their ability to induce macrophage cytotocixity and secretion of the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-α, to produce pseudo-hyphae and to secrete hydrolytic enzymes. Environmental C. parapsilosis isolates caused a statistically significant (p = 0.0002) higher cell damage compared with the clinical strains, while C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were less cytotoxic. On the other hand, clinical isolates induced a higher TNF-α production compared with

Candida albicans is a human commensal organism that can cause life-threatening systemic infections in severely ill patients. The mouse intravenous challenge model is commonly used to model this infection. However, recent research has found that it is early events in the kidney that generate damaging immune responses and determine gross outcome of infection. Therefore, identification of the renal cells involved in these responses will allow development of an in vitro assay to model these events.. ...

Candida yeasts are common in most people. The yeast is usually controlled in the body. When the yeast grows without control, an infection happens. A weakened, unhealthy, or young immune system may allow candidiasis to develop.[3] HIV/AIDS, cancer treatments, steroids, stress and not enough nutrients may cause candidiasis. Antibiotic and steroid use are the most common reason for uncontrolled yeast.[4] Antibiotic kills some bacteria, and changes the balance of microorganisms in the body. This may allow the yeast to multiply. ...

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 ( 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 ...
