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).
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 ...
Pfizer Limited today welcomes the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) advice, which recommends Ecalta (anidulafungin), a new antifungal medicine for the treatment of invasive candidiasis in NHS Scotland.1 Following a re-submission, the SMCs decision to recommend anidulafungin comes after results of the cost-minimisation analysis which indicated that anidulafungin would be preferred to both caspofungin and liposomal amphotericin B, with savings of 772 and 2,375 respectively, as a
28. Empiric antifungal therapy should be considered in critically ill patients with risk factors for invasive candidiasis and no other known cause of fever and should be based on clinical assessment of risk factors, surrogate markers for invasive candidiasis, and/or culture data from nonsterile sites (strong recommendation; moderate-quality evidence). Empiric antifungal therapy should be started as soon as possible in patients who have the above risk factors and who have clinical signs of septic shock (strong recommendation; moderate-quality evidence). ...

By Chen, Hua Suda, Katie J; Turpin, Robin S; Pai, Manjunath P; Et al Key words: Candidiasis - Cost-effectiveness analysis - Fluconazole - Pharmacoeconomics ABSTRACT Background: High-dose fluconazole is an alternative for patients with candidemia caused by Candida glabrata or other Candida species with decreased fluconazole susceptibility. However, empiric high- dose fluconazole is not currently recommended and may result in higher drug costs and toxicity. Objective: To determine the cost-effectiveness of using empiric high-dose fluconazole in intensive care unit (ICU) with suspected invasive candidiasis. Design: Decision analytic model. Target population: ICU patients with suspected invasive candidiasis. Time horizon: Lifetime. Perspective: Societal. Interventions: Low-dose fluconazole (loading dose of 800 mg followed by 400 mg daily) vs. high-dose fluconazole (loading dose of 1600 mg followed by 800 mg daily). Generic fluconazole costs were used for the analysis. Outcome measures: Incremental ...
article{c7437ca5-8401-4db0-b1c9-267013d9baa1, abstract = {In 2 prospective studies, we previously reported on the early and accurate diagnosis of invasive candidiasis by determining the D-arabinitol/L-arabinitol (DA/LA) ratio in urine in neutropenic children with cancer at the paediatric oncology unit (POU) and in premature infants at the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at our hospital. In this retrospective study at the same units, we report how the DA/LA assay was implemented in clinical practice immediately after the prospective study periods. We found that, in the POU, the recommendation of regularly monitoring urine DA/LA ratios in patients at risk and considering antifungal therapy in the case of elevated ratios had been followed. A significant decrease in the incidence of culture positive invasive candidiasis may have been attributed to the introduction of the DA/LA assay. At the NICU, where the DA/LA assay was recommended only as an adjunct to other diagnostic tools, morbidity in ...
The ECIL-5 meeting was held in September 2013 and involved 57 experts from 21 countries, including 3 non-European countries.

... , 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 ...

Background Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF-MS) allows the identification of most bacteria and an increasing number of fungi. The potential for the highest clinical benefit of such methods would be in severe acute infections that require prompt treatment adapted to the infecting species. Our objective was to determine whether yeasts could be identified directly from a positive blood culture, avoiding the 1-3 days subculture step currently required before any therapeutic adjustments can be made. Methodology/Principal Findings Using human blood spiked with Candida albicans to simulate blood cultures, we optimized protocols to obtain MALDI TOF-MS fingerprints where signals from blood proteins are reduced. Simulated cultures elaborated using a set of 12 strains belonging to 6 different species were then tested. Quantifiable spectral differences in the 5000-7400 Da mass range allowed to discriminate between these species and to build a reference

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 ...

The colonization rate of Candida spp. reaches up to 80% in patients who reside in intensive care units (ICUs) more than a week, and the mean rate of development of invasive disease is 10% in colonized patients. Since invasive candidiasis (IC) in ICU patients presents with septic shock and high mortality rate, rapid diagnosis and treatment are crucial. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between invasive infection and the determination of Candida colonization index (CI) and Candida score (CS) in patients admitted to ICU who are at high risk for IC and likely to benefit from early antifungal therapy ...
This years ECCMID meeting in Copenhagen was universally accepted to be the first one with a significant infection prevention and control component, although it would be fair so say that the sessions were not the best attended, meaning that levels of interest in infection control in the majority of the infectious disease physicians attending still need to be stimulated. There were a number of significant sessions, one of which entitled The year in infection control was a whistle-stop tour through the most significant papers of 2014 as selected by Petra Gastmeier, Eli Perencevich and Stephanie Dancer. This was a rollercoaster of a session and the abstracts presented are available here. There was, as you would imagine an interest in Chlorhexidine bathing with a very interesting debate between Stephan Harbarth (in favour) and Andreas Voss (against). The main argument against seemed to be that compliance is poor and so why bother. This in fact was a major theme at the meeting, where many papers ...

The House Energy and Commerce Committees Subcommittee on Health is considering reauthorization of the Project BioShield Act, legislation passed in 2004 that is designed to spur companies into making countermeasures against a bioterrorist attack. However, in testimony before the subcommittee today, Martin J. Blaser, MD, president of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), emphasized a different threat, one that infectious diseases physicians witness every day: the burden of antimicrobial-resistant infections such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). "Antimicrobial resistant infections have created a silent epidemic in communities and hospitals across the country," Blaser said, crippling and killing a growing number of otherwise-healthy people and driving up healthcare costs. To make matters worse, the IDSA says, the pharmaceutical industry has lost interest in developing new antibiotics to fight these infections because they are not as profitable as drugs for ...
In contrast, C. parapsilosis, our most common breakthrough Candida spp., has not been associated with characteristic hot-spot mutations. Instead, a naturally occurring polymorphism in the FKS gene is thought to confer higher echinocandin MICs. Among 759 C. parapsilosis isolates recovered in global surveillance, the MIC90 of micafungin was 2 μg/ml, although no organism had an MIC of ,2 μg/ml (42). The amino acid substitution of proline for alanine (P660A) encoded in the FKS1 hot-spot region of C. parapsilosis appears to be responsible for the intrinsically higher MICs (12). In our C. parapsilosis breakthrough isolates, none had characteristic hot-spot mutations but all contained the naturally occurring P660A substitution and mixed echinocandin MICs. Eighty-three percent (5/6) of our C. parapsilosis isolates had nonsusceptible micafungin MICs (range, 4 to 8 μg/ml), a finding which clearly differs from the global surveillance data (42). These six isolates all had caspofungin MICs of 0.5 to 1 ...

Washington, DC - Trust for Americas Health (TFAH) and The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) applaud the Obama administration and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for adopting a new approach for the use of antimicrobial drugs in animal agriculture. These actions demonstrate a clear commitment to sound and science-based policies that will protect the health of every American.. In a letter to Melody Barnes, President Obamas assistant for domestic policy, IDSA and TFAH expressed their strong support for the administrations new "public health approach to antimicrobial use in animals," which calls for phasing out the use of antimicrobial drugs for growth promotion and feed efficiency. The new approach also requires that all other uses of these drugs be carried out under the supervision of a veterinarian and within the boundaries of a valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship-thereby ending over-the-counter sales of tons of antimicrobial drugs annually..

BACKGROUND: Many tropical countries are currently experiencing dengue (DEN), chikungunya (CHIK) and also more recently Zika (ZIKA) epidemics (particularly in Latin America). Although the risk of transmission and spread of these infections in temperate regions remains a controversial issue, vector-borne diseases have been widely reported in the media and have been the focus of preventive strategies by national and international policy-makers and public health authorities. In this context, we wanted to determine the extent of risk perception in infectious diseases (ID) physicians of the current and future risk of arboviral disease introduction, autochthonous case development and epidemic scenarios in France, Western Europe. METHODS: To this aim, we developed an original standardized questionnaire survey which was disseminated by the French Infectious Diseases Society to ID physician members. RESULTS: We found that ID physicians perceived the risk of introduction and outbreak development of DEN,

Deep seated candidoses are the most common invasive fungal infections occurring in various categories of patients including those with cancer, burns as well as patients with AIDS or undergoing organ transplantation. Various clinical entities have to be distinguished with implications for diagnostic procedures as well as for adequate therapy. During the last decade, tremendous progress has been achieved leading to a major reduction of mortality attributable for candidaemia from 80 % (in the seventies) to 40 % in the nineties, mainly due to early empiric antifungal and better prophylaxis treatment. Other antifungal strategies than conventional amphotericin B are now available and have been shown effective, in particular, new modalities to administer amphotericin B including various lipid formulations, but also new azoles and mainly the triazoles such as fluconazole and itraconazole. Fluconazole has been shown effective as prophylaxis of candidosis including in patients undergoing bone marrow ...
The China Assessment of Antifungal Therapy in Hematological Disease study, the first large-scale observational study of invasive fungal disease (IFD) in China, enrolled 1401 patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) (75.2% allogeneic and 24.8% autologous) at 31 hospitals across China. The overall incidence of proven or probable IFD was 7.7% (108 of 1401); another 266 cases (19.0%) were possible IFD. After allogeneic or autologous HSCT, the incidence of proven/probable IFD was 8.9% (94 of 1053) and 4.0% (14 of 348), respectively. Some cases (14 of 108) developed during conditioning before transplantation. The cumulative incidence of proven/probable IFD increased steeply in the first month after transplantation and after 6 months, the incidence was significantly higher in allogeneic than it was in autologous transplant recipients (9.2% versus 3.5%; P = .001) and when stem cells were derived from cord blood or bone marrow and peripheral blood (P = .02 versus other sources). ...

These micro-contaminants present multiple problems. Their biodegradability takes longer than previously believed and the reactivity of their components is high.. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria is already a concern for infectious disease physicians and epidemiologists. Similarly, the buildup of tolerance to pain meds and psychiatric ones could also conceivably be a consequence of the presence of these substances in water and the soils they irrigate or infiltrate.. So, too, the presence in water and soil of hormones and endocrine-disrupting chemicals, even in micro-doses to small to be screened, has already been linked to the premature onset of puberty in the early elementary school grades, loss of sperm count and motility, and an increased incidence of male breast cancer, and allergies has also been reported.

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 ...

Students taking this elective will gain experience in the diagnosis and clinical management of patients with infections or suspected infections. The primary mode of learning will be by seeing patients in both a busy tertiary-care community regional hospital and also in the outpatient ID clinic. Elective will be approximately 80% inpatient and 20% outpatient. Students will be functioning as a consultant, performing complete history and physical examination on the initial visit and subsequently following those patients on daily rounds, under the guidance of an infectious disease physician. They will gather available data, consult textbooks and literature as necessary, and prepare a list of infectious disease problems with expanded infectious differential diagnosis. Students will then provide proposed, evidence-based diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for each problem. Rounding in the hospital is multidisciplinary and will also include an infectious disease pharmacist and also pharmacy students. ...
Antibiotics are powerful drugs to treat serious infections. However, decades of overprescribing and misuse have resulted in bacteria that are increasingly resistant to these potent drugs, creating a growing threat of new superbugs that are difficult, and sometimes even impossible, to treat. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drug-resistant bacteria cause two million illnesses and 23,000 deaths annually. National Quality Forums National Quality Partners (NQP) convened more than 25 experts and national stakeholders from the public and private sectors-including patient advocates, infectious disease physicians and pharmacists, and acute-care providers-to develop National Quality Partners Playbook: Antibiotic Stewardship in Acute Care. The Playbook is designed to help hospitals and health systems strengthen existing antibiotic stewardship initiatives or create antibiotic stewardship programs from the ground up. Based on CDCs Core Elements of Hospital Antibiotic ...
This toolkit assumes that your hospital already has an ASP or the foundation for an ASP from which to launch the ASP targeted to promote appropriate antibiotic use and potential C. difficile reduction. Implementing and maintaining an effective ASP requires a dedicated multidisciplinary team and ongoing communication and collaboration as well as ongoing monitoring of systems. Further, ongoing monitoring may necessitate course corrections.. Team membership will vary among organizations, but the core team should include an infectious disease physician, PharmD, clinical microbiologist, infection control representative, hospital epidemiologist, information technology (IT) representative, and senior administrator. Ideally, the team should be supported by an in-house lab and IT resources.. Before going further, you should review your facilitys current ASP or, if necessary, take steps to develop a basic ASP from which to target C. difficile reduction.

New revelations are coming from the UK that doctors are discharging sick and disabled newborn babies, from National Health Service hospitals in England only to die slowly at home or in hospices in an unfathomable manner. The innocent children are being put on controversial "death pathways," once only thought to have involved elderly and terminally ill adult patients.. According to the UK Daily Mail, one doctor has admitted starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital alone. Writing in a leading medical journal, the physician revealed the process can take an average of ten days during which a baby becomes smaller and shrunken. The LCP - on which 130,000 elderly and terminally-ill adult patients die each year - is now the subject of an independent inquiry ordered by ministers.. ...

The Cand-Tec Candida detection system and enzyme immunoassay for serum mannan were retrospectively compared in a controlled collaborative evaluation of antigen detection in 32 patients with candidiasis proven by biopsy or culture from a normally sterile site and with sera drawn within 7 days of inclusion. With a threshold titer of 1/8, which excluded false-positive results in 17 hospitalized patients without candidiasis, sensitivities for all 32 patients with candidiasis were 44% for the Cand-Tec assay and 17% for the enzyme immunoassay. Both assays provided greater sensitivity when sera were drawn within 24 h of inclusion in the study and in the category of patients with invasive candidiasis (57% by Cand-Tec and 33% by enzyme immunoassay). The Cand-Tec assay gave false-positive results (titer, greater than or equal to 1/8) in 4 of 6 patients with transient candidemia, in 1 of 20 otherwise healthy patients with rheumatoid factor, and in 1 patient with a positive cryptococcal latex agglutination ...
Because Candida yeast can live in a variety of places on your body (anywhere on your skin, and in any mucous membrane), yeast infections can occur in a variety of places. The two most common are, of course, are oral and vaginal. An oral yeast infection is known as Oropharyngeal or Esophageal Candidiasis (also called "Thrush") while vaginal infections are called Genital/Vulvovaginal Candidiasis. Less common is Invasive Candidiasis. This is a particularly severe form of the condition that involves the Candida yeast invading the blood supply of the body. This type of infection is more threatening and potentially harmful to you, but can still be treated and ultimately cured.. In cases of oral or genital infection, home remedies may be applied to treat the infection. In cases where the infection hits your bloodstream, however, proper medical treatment is a must! The more you know about Candida, the better able you are to combat it, should you find yourself with an infection.. ...
Glucose control to prevent both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia is important in an intensive care unit [1]. Recent meta-analysis, including results of the NICE-SUGAR study [2], showed that intensive insulin therapy (target blood-glucose control, 80 to 110 mg/dl) was not beneficial and increased the risk of severe hypoglycemia in critically ill patients [3-5]. Thus, it is currently recommended that insulin should be used when the glucose concentration exceeds 180 mg/dl, and target glucose concentration should generally be between 144 and 180 mg/dl [6, 7]. Even though a more-modest target for blood-glucose concentration is now accepted, the importance of glucose monitoring and its accuracy has become clearer. Because the physiological activity of glucose is dependent on its plasma concentration, central laboratory blood-glucose measurement using plasma (Glu-lab) is recommended [8, 9]. However, arterial blood gas analyzers (ABGs) and/or glucose meters, not Glu-lab, are commonly used to measure ...

Newer HCV therapies have been hailed by the IDSA and the AASLD for their improved simplicity and safety compared with older, interferon-based treatments; thus, nonspecialist physicians, rather than a limited number of specialists, may be able to manage treatment for most HCV-infected persons (that is, nonrelapsing patients without serious comorbid conditions). However, 30 states require that sofosbuvir be prescribed by, or in consultation with, a specialist-usually a hepatologist, gastroenterologist, or infectious disease physician. The extent to which finding a specialist who accepts Medicaid may pose a barrier to HCV treatment remains unclear, although some Medicaid directors reported concern for patients living in rural areas. The IDSA/AASLD guidelines recommend collaboration with specialists (through the use of telemedicine, if needed) for treatment management when primary care physicians have limited experience. Many prior authorization criteria require abstinence from the use of alcohol, ...
Rapid and sufficient fluid administration is considered a keystone of resuscitation therapies for patients with shock. However, determining how much fluid to give and when to stop fluid administration is not always clear. To examine associations between fluid balance and clinical outcomes in critically ill adult patients with acute kidney injury who required renal replacement therapy, an analysis of data from a large (n = 1,453), multicenter, randomized controlled trial of intensity of continuous RRT was conducted. During the intensive care unit stay, the mean daily (−234 ml/day vs. + 560 ml/day, P = 0.0001) and mean cumulative (−1,941 vs. 1,755 ml, P = 0.0003) fluid balances were significantly lower in survivors than in nonsurvivors (fig. 4). Using various statistical techniques, including multivariate analysis, propensity scoring, and Cox proportional hazards modeling, a negative mean daily fluid balance was shown to be consistently and independently associated with improved clinical ...

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 ...
Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by yeasts that belong to the genus Candida. There are over 20 species of Candidayeasts that can cause infection in
Candida is a fungus that occurs naturally in several places in the body, but can cause infection if it overgrows into a condition called candidiasis.
How has your relationship with your partner changed as a result of disease? Physicians seem reluctant to address this question with caregivers dealing with a long-term chronic illness.. "No one asked me about my marriage or sexuality. Yet it plays a large part in our well being. No one asked me, ʻwhats the quality of your life?ʼ … Im a sexual individual. Im 76 years old and Iʼm still alive," said Jerry, who cared for his wife with dementia.. At a recent conference of the Caregiver Resource Centers of California, the keynote presentation was on sexuality and intimacy. At this presentation, there was a panel of caregivers who shared their experiences caring for their loved ones. As the audience of professionals listened, the moderator asked each one if anyone had ever asked them how the disease had affected their ability to be intimate. Each one, in turn, said that the subject had never come up with any professional, not even in a caregiver support group. Outside of the issue of disease, ...
Pfizer is currently recruiting for the NCT00002038 Candidiasis, Mycoses, HIV Infections Cancer trial. Review trial description, criteria and location information here.
The echinocandins are a new class of antifungal agents that target the fungal cell wall by inhibiting 1,3-β-d-glucan synthetase (5). Caspofungin and the recently approved echinocandins micafungin and anidulafungin have broad-spectrum fungicidal activity against Candida species and have been shown to be active for the treatment of invasive candidiasis (3, 5, 7, 11).. Of concern, however, is the paradoxical growth of some Candida albicans isolates in vitro (12, 15) and in vivo (4) observed at caspofungin concentrations that are high yet theoretically achievable in humans. This phenomenon has similarities to the paradoxical, or "eagle," effect observed for other cell wall-active antimicrobial agents, such as penicillins. Although the molecular mechanisms responsible for the paradoxical effect of echinocandins remain largely unknown, it has been postulated that stress response pathways, such as the cell wall integrity and calcineurin pathways (14, 16), play a critical role. Hence, a compensatory ...

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., ...

We describe a case of disseminated C. guilliermondii with associated purulent pericarditis, despite high-dose amphotericin B (AmB), in a 19-year-old female with aplastic anemia who underwent BMT. In vitro susceptibility studies of the 13 clinical isolates, two control strains and one environmental isolate revealed a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) range of (0.19-1.56 μg/ml) for AmB and (1.25-10 μg/ml) for fluconazole. Pulsed-field gradient gel electrophoresis was performed to evaluate possible similarities between strains. This case is significant for several reasons, the high degree and prolonged duration of fungemia despite high-dose AmB and ...
