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 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).
Invasive candidiasis is a major nosocomial fungal disease in the United States associated with high rates of illness and death. We analyzed inpatient hospitalization records from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project to estimate incidence of invasive candidiasis-associated hospitalizations in the United States. We extracted data for 33 states for 2002-2012 by using codes from the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification, for invasive candidiasis; we excluded neonatal cases. The overall age-adjusted average annual rate was 5.3 hospitalizations/100,000 population. Highest risk was for adults >65 years of age, particularly men. Median length of hospitalization was 21 days; 22% of patients died during hospitalization. Median unadjusted associated cost for inpatient care was $46,684. Age-adjusted annual rates decreased during 2005-2012 for men (annual change -3.9%) and women (annual change -4.5%) and across nearly all age groups. We report a high mortality
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). ...

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

Although prompt initiation of appropriate antifungal therapy is essential for the control of invasive Candida infections and an improvement of prognosis, early diagnosis of invasive candidiasis remains a challenge and criteria for starting empirical antifungal therapy in ICU patients are poorly defined. Some scoring systems, such as the Candida score could help physicians to differentiate patients who could benefit from early antifungal treatment from those for whom invasive candidiasis is highly improbable. This study evaluated the performance of this score in a cohort of critically ill patients. A prospective, observational, multicenter, cohort study was conducted from January 2010 to March 2011 in five intensive care units in Nord-Pas de Calais, an area from North of France. All patients exhibiting, on ICU admission or during their ICU stay, a hospital-acquired severe sepsis or septic shock could be included in this study. The data collected included patient characteristics on ICU admission and at
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 ...

Comment.Studies assessing patients with candidemia versus healthy controls showed that PCR of whole-blood samples targeting panfungal genes has 100% sensitivity and specificity. When patients with candidemia constituted the case definition and patients with sepsis at risk for IC without candidemia constituted the control group, the sensitivity was 100% in 31/49 studies and the pooled (HSROC) sensitivity was 0.95 (95% confidence interval, 0.88 to 0.98). As expected, sensitivity decreased as the reference standard became less stringent, from proven through probable to possible IC. In the analysis where patients with cases had proven/probable or possible IC and other patients at risk for IC were controls, the pooled (HSROC) sensitivity was 0.73 (0.58 to 0.83). The pooled specificity was above 90% in all analyses. In studies conducted after 2000, positive likelihood ratios were higher than those in older studies, ranging from 14 to 24 in the different analyses, and the negative likelihood ratio for ...

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. Slides of the conclusions of the ECIL-5 were made available on the websites of the EORTC, EBMT, ELN, and ICHS. The ECIL-6 meeting was held in September 2015 with the presence of 55 experts from 24 countries, including 4 non-European countries (see list of collaborators at the end of this Review).. At both the ECIL-5 and the ECIL-6 meetings, the antifungal therapy working group made a search for new publications regarding treatment of invasive candidiasis, aspergillosis and mucormycosis. The group was divided into three subgroups, each being responsible for one of each fungal infection type. The literature search was performed in Pubmed and Cochrane databases. Abstracts presented at major congresses during the previous two years were also retrieved and integrated into the ECIL recommendation. All recommendations referring to an abstract, however, were classified as ...
As the COVID-19 pandemic spread over the world, taking over our collective global consciousness, I couldnt help but be reminded of the earliest days of my career as an infectious diseases physician. My fellowship began during another viral pandemic: H1N1 influenza. Every night brought calls to the bedsides of shockingly young patients who were profoundly sick in the ICU. The similarities between 2009 and the current COVID-19 pandemic, however, end there.. Despite being a new strain of influenza that was particularly deadly for young people, H1N1 quickly revealed its secrets to us. We learned early how it spread, how to treat it, and, eventually, how to develop a vaccine for it. The current novel coronavirus however, has offered no such early victories. Much of the spring passed in a blur as healthcare workers across the country struggled to cope with the sick flooding into our hospitals.. The pandemic made it impossible to deny the inequities in our society, with historically marginalized and ...

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 ...

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

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 ...
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
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..

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. To this aim, we developed an original standardized questionnaire survey which was disseminated by the French Infectious Diseases Society to ID physician members.

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). ...

Scientists call proteins coded by DNA the building blocks of life. For Tawny Gonzalez, these proteins became building blocks for her education.. Gonzalez, an alumna of the College of Science and first-year WWAMI medical student, plays a key role in a molecular modeling study using complex math to plot out the genetic changes affecting the health and structure of living things. Gonzalez indirectly found her interest in molecular modeling while shadowing an infectious disease physician at Kootenai Health in Coeur dAlene.. That was the coolest shadow job, true Sherlock Holmes stuff, Gonzalez said. To diagnose culprits for infection, you have to follow clues in the patients body and history to figure out when and where they were exposed, Gonzalez said.. Gonzalez began exploring ways to research viruses and infectious diseases at U of I. While looking into projects in the physics department, she learned about Marty Ytreberg, professor of physics and an associate director of U of Is Institute ...

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 ...
