Psychological factors associated with recurrent vaginal candidiasis: a preliminary study. (1/350)

OBJECTIVE: To identify psychological factors associated with chronic recurrent vaginal candidiasis. DESIGN: A cross sectional exploratory study of women with chronic, recurrent vaginal candidiasis. PATIENTS: 28 women found culture positive and treated for vaginal candidiasis by a clinic physician at least twice within the past 6 months. All women reported that they had experienced vaginal thrush six or more times within 1 year. A comparison group comprised 16 women with no history of recurrent vaginal candidiasis, of similar age range, and recruited from a women's family planning service. METHODS: Both groups were compared on demographic criteria, sexual health histories, mental health, and psychological health characteristics. A purpose designed structured interview was administered alongside a battery of standardised psychometric instruments measuring mood, satisfaction with life, self esteem, and perceived stress. RESULTS: The two groups showed considerable similarities, with no significant differences in demographic characteristics and most sexual health issues. However, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis were significantly more likely to suffer clinical depression, to be less satisfied with life, to have poorer self esteem, and to perceive their lives as more stressful. Additionally, women with recurrent vaginal candidiasis reported that their candidiasis seriously interfered with their sexual and emotional relationships. CONCLUSIONS: Overall, this study identified many areas of psychological morbidity associated with chronic vaginal candidiasis, and indicates that development of appropriate psychological treatment initiatives in this area is long overdue.  (+info)

High aspartyl proteinase production and vaginitis in human immunodeficiency virus-infected women. (2/350)

Vaginal isolates of Candida albicans from human immunodeficiency virus-positive (HIV+) and HIV- women with or without candidal vaginitis were examined for secretory aspartyl proteinase (Sap) production in vitro and in vivo and for the possible correlation of Sap production with pathology and antimycotic susceptibility in vitro. HIV+ women with candidal vaginitis were infected by strains of C. albicans showing significantly higher levels of Sap, a virulence enzyme, than strains isolated from HIV+, C. albicans carrier subjects and HIV- subjects with vaginitis. The greater production of Sap in vitro was paralleled by greater amounts of Sap in the vaginal fluids of infected subjects. In an estrogen-dependent, rat vaginitis model, a strain of C. albicans producing a high level of Sap that was isolated from an HIV+ woman with vaginitis was more pathogenic than a strain of C. albicans that was isolated primarily from an HIV-, Candida carrier. In the same model, pepstatin A, a strong Sap inhibitor, exerted a strong curative effect on experimental vaginitis. No correlation was found between Sap production and antimycotic susceptibility, as most of the isolates were fully susceptible to fluconazole, itraconazole, and other antimycotics, regardless of their source (subjects infected with strains producing high or low levels of Sap, subjects with vaginitis or carrier subjects, or subjects with or without HIV). Thus, high Sap production is associated with virulence of C. albicans but not with fungal resistance to fluconazole in HIV-infected subjects, and Sap is a potentially new therapeutic target in candidal vaginitis.  (+info)

Analysis of vaginal cell populations during experimental vaginal candidiasis. (3/350)

Studies with an estrogen-dependent murine model of vaginal candidiasis suggest that local cell-mediated immunity (CMI) is more important than systemic CMI for protection against vaginitis. The present study, however, showed that, compared to uninfected mice, little to no change in the percentage or types of vaginal T cells occurred during a primary vaginal infection or during a secondary vaginal infection where partial protection was observed. Furthermore, depletion of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) had no effect on infection in the presence or absence of pseudoestrus. These results indicate a lack of demonstrable effects by systemic CMI or PMN against vaginitis and suggest that if local T cells are important, they are functioning without showing significant increases in numbers within the vaginal mucosa during infection.  (+info)

Circulating heat shock proteins in women with a history of recurrent vulvovaginitis. (4/350)

OBJECTIVE: Predisposing factors influencing recurrences of bacterial vaginosis (BV) or vaginitis from Candida remain unidentified for most women. As a component of studies to determine host susceptibility factors to genital tract infections in women, we measured expression of the 60-kDa and 70-kDa heat shock proteins (hsp60 and hsp70, respectively) in the circulation of women with or without a history of recurrent BV or candidal vaginitis and with or without a current lower genital tract infection. Heat shock protein expression is associated with a down-regulation of pro-inflammatory immune responses that would inhibit microbial infection. METHOD: The investigators measured hsp60 and hsp70, antibodies to these proteins, the pro-inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and the anti-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-10 (IL-10) in sera by ELISA. The study population consisted of 100 women who attended a gynecology clinic in Campinas, Brazil. Of those, 55 had a history of recurrent vulvovaginitis (RV), while 45 were controls with no such history. Only women who were asymptomatic for at least 1 month were studied. RESULTS: Although all were asymptomatic, clinical and microbiological examination revealed that five of the women with a history of RV and two controls had a current candidal vaginal infection; 16 RV patients and 12 controls had BV; and six RV patients had both BV and candidiasis. Twenty-eight RV patients and 31 controls had no clinical or microbiological detectable vaginal infection. Among the RV patients, hsp60 and hsp70 were more prevalent in those with current BV (40.9% and 50.0%, respectively) or a candidal infection (45.5% and 54.5%) than in women with no current infection (21.4% and 17.9%). In the women with no history of RV, BV was not associated with a high prevalence of hsp60 (8.3%) or hsp70 (8.3%). Interleukin-10 and TNF were not more prevalent in vaginitis patients or controls with a current candidal infection or BV than in uninfected subjects. CONCLUSION: The high prevalence of circulating hsp60 and hsp70 in women with a history of RV and current BV or vaginal candidiasis, but not in women with no history of RV, suggests that differences in heat shock protein induction may be related to susceptibility to recurrent vaginal infections.  (+info)

In vitro and in vivo anticandidal activity of human immunodeficiency virus protease inhibitors. (5/350)

Highly active antiretroviral therapy that includes human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) aspartyl protease inhibitors (PIs) causes a decline in the incidence of some opportunistic infections in AIDS, and this decline is currently attributed to the restoration of specific immunity. The effect of two PIs (indinavir and ritonavir) on the enzymatic activity of a secretory aspartyl protease (Sap) of Candida albicans (a major agent of mucosal disease in HIV-infected subjects) and on growth and experimental pathogenicity of this fungus was evaluated. Both PIs strongly (>/=90%) and dose dependently (0.1-10 microM) inhibited Sap activity and production. They also significantly reduced Candida growth in a nitrogen-limited, Sap expression-dependent growth medium and exerted a therapeutic effect in an experimental model of vaginal candidiasis, with an efficacy comparable to that of fluconazole. Thus, besides the expected immunorestoration, patients receiving PI therapy may benefit from a direct anticandidal activity of these drugs.  (+info)

An adhesin of the yeast pathogen Candida glabrata mediating adherence to human epithelial cells. (6/350)

Candida glabrata is an important fungal pathogen of humans that is responsible for about 15 percent of mucosal and systemic candidiasis. Candida glabrata adhered avidly to human epithelial cells in culture. By means of a genetic approach and a strategy allowing parallel screening of mutants, it was possible to clone a lectin from a Candida species. Deletion of this adhesin reduced adherence of C. glabrata to human epithelial cells by 95 percent. The adhesin, encoded by the EPA1 gene, is likely a glucan-cross-linked cell-wall protein and binds to host-cell carbohydrate, specifically recognizing asialo-lactosyl-containing carbohydrates.  (+info)

Differential susceptibility of two species of macaques to experimental vaginal candidiasis. (7/350)

Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) caused by Candida albicans is a significant problem in women of childbearing age. Unfortunately, protective host defense mechanisms against VVC are poorly understood. Although rodent models of experimental vaginal candidiasis have been useful, several differences from humans limit the correlation of experimental data. The purpose of the present study was to examine two species of macaques as an alternative model of experimental vaginitis. Screening of pig-tailed and rhesus macaques demonstrated that each had mucosal Candida colonization and prior immune sensitization to C. albicans. Vaginal-associated immunity (cytokines, antibodies, and innate resistance) was also detected in cervicovaginal lavage fluid from both species. Nevertheless, intravaginal inoculation of C. albicans into both species, either untreated or under estrogen-treated conditions, resulted in vaginal infection in rhesus, but not pig-tailed, macaques. Several estrogen-dependent changes in the rhesus immune status coincided with susceptibility to infection. Taken together, these results suggest that pig-tailed and rhesus macaques may be useful in studying pathogenesis and immunity associated with C. albicans vaginitis.  (+info)

Evolution of vaginal Candida species recovered from human immunodeficiency virus-infected women receiving fluconazole prophylaxis: the emergence of Candida glabrata? Terry Beirn Community Programs for Clinical Research in AIDS (CPCRA). (8/350)

The effect of fluconazole prophylaxis on the vaginal flora of 323 human immunodeficiency virus-infected women was evaluated in a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Women with CD4 cell counts of < or = 300/mm3 received either 200 mg of fluconazole per week or placebo. Vaginal surveillance cultures were performed every 3 months. After a follow-up of 29 months, Candida albicans was recovered from 53% of patients receiving fluconazole and 68% of patients assigned placebo. Fluconazole was associated with a 50% reduction in the odds of being colonized with C. albicans but with higher rates for non-albicans Candida species. Candida glabrata was recovered from 40 women assigned fluconazole and 29 assigned placebo (relative odds, 1.96; 95% confidence interval, 0.98-3.94). Fluconazole had an early and persistent effect on the vaginal mycoflora, with the emergence of C. glabrata vaginal colonization within the first 6 months. The effect of fluconazole prophylaxis can be attributed to the reduction in vaginal C. albicans colonization; however, C. glabrata colonization rapidly supervened.  (+info)

Symptoms can persist for days, weeks, or even months. Sometimes, the symptoms are aggravated by sexual intercourse, and the vaginal odor usually becomes stronger after intercourse.. Diagnosing Vulvovaginal Candidiasis. Diagnosis for Vulvovaginal Candidiasis can be conducted by two main methods. The first method is microscopically viewing the vaginal discharge to determine the existence of Vulvovaginal Candidiasis. This method can be done in the doctors office with results provided immediately. The second method is a laboratory test that can take two to three days to confirm. In both tests, a swab is used to acquire a small sample of vaginal discharge to test.. Some tests can be negative even if Candida Albicans is present. Therefore, it is necessary to get comprehensive testing if you suspect an infection.. Treatment for Vulvovaginal Candidiasis.

Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is a fungal infection (also known as a yeast infection) of vaginal mucous membranes by Candida. Approximately 75% of women will have at least one case of VVC, and 40-45% will have two or more cases within their lifetime.. Some women with VVC develop chronic, recurring cases of VVC, which is called recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC). Women who have three or more episodes of VVC within a year suffer from RVVC.. Estimates show that VVC affects approximately 65 million women in the United States, with seven million of those women (approximately 8% of the female population aged 16-55 years) suffering from RVVC.. Physical symptoms of VVC include vulvovaginal inflammation, burning, soreness, abnormal vaginal discharge, severe itching, discomfort and pain. Beyond these symptoms, RVVC can have a large negative impact on patients quality of life and self-esteem, causing problems in their social and sex lives. The cost of continually treating RVVC is also a burden for ...

Background: Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is a fungal infection of the female lower genital tract- the vagina and vulva caused by candida species. It is estimated that 40% of healthy asymptomatic women have Candida as normal flora in the lower genital tract. However, candida species can become causative agents of Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) also known as candidiasis or moniliasis. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of candidiasis, the different species of Candida and their susceptibility patterns to the commonly used antifungals. Methodology: Vaginal specimens were collected from two hundred seventy one consenting pregnant women attending pre-natal visits in Mulago hospital in Kampala, Uganda. Wet preparation and gram staining was preformed then samples were cultured onto SDA and incubated at 37˚C for 24 hours. Drug susceptibility testing was done by disk diffusion method on muller hinton agar supplemented with 2% glucose and 0.5ml of 1g of methylene blue as recommended ...

Like other syndromes affecting the lower genital tract of women, vulvovaginal candidiasis has been regarded as more of a nuisance infection than a topic of serious scientific inquiry. New advances in molecular epidemiology, host mucosal immunology, and antifungal treatment have, however, enlivened investigation into this common condition.. Furthermore, the economic costs of vulvovaginal candidiasis treatment have been well documented, along with the extent to which women treat themselves with a variety of antifungal preparations that are available without a prescription. In 2002 women in the United States spent over half a billion dollars on medications to treat vulvovaginal candidiasis, with about half this amount spent on over the counter preparations.1 This is despite the fact that many women may wrongly diagnose vulvovaginal candidiasis and may be equally or more likely to have bacterial vaginosis, with or without vulvovaginal candidiasis.2.

Phospholipase and Aspartyl Proteinase Activities of Candida Species Causing Vulvovaginal Candidiasis in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus;kpubs;kpubs.org
Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC), particularly the recurrent form, remains an intractable problem for clinicians, microbiologists, and patients. It is essential to confi rm the clinical diagnosis by mycological methods and avoid empirical therapy. The recovery of yeast in fungal culture, such as on Sabouraud dextrose agar, remains the gold standard for diagnosis. In this investigation, we examined 474 participants, including 122 (25.7%) with acute VVC cases, 249 (52.5%) who had recurrent VVC (RVVC) cases, and 103 (21.7%) healthy controls. We also administered a questionnaire to obtain information on patient lifestyle and medical, gynecological, and sexual history. In addition, we compared the performance of chromID Candida agar (CAN2) to CHROMagar Candida (CAC) and Sabouraud dextrose agar with gentamicin and chloramphenicol (SGC2).

Candida microbes are normally hosted by the human physique in any case. The issue begins after they develop in an uncontrolled trend. This occurs when different useful micro organism can not include the pure multiplication of Candida. This could then end in vaginal candidiasis. Vaginal candidiasis happens very often. Statistics present that one out of each three girls will likely be affected by this at a while in her life. This fungal an infection is a giant fear for a lot of girls and one of many greatest issues is the lack of know-how concerning the ailment.. Sickness Triggers Many causes can contribute strongly to setting off vaginal candidiasis. A scarcity of air flow accompanied by a rise in physique warmth and in physique moisture all irritate the Candida microbe multiplication. On this manner incorrect clothes together with very tight clothes that constricts the physique, can prohibit the proper evacuation of sweat and generate an infection..

The age range of the 95 patients was 18 to 67 years (mean, 36.6 years), and nearly 89 percent were high school graduates. More than 70 percent were employed, and 67 percent reported a household income of $20,000 or more per year. Condom use was reported by 38 percent, and birth control pills by 28 percent.. As shown in the accompanying table, only 32 (34 percent) of the women made an accurate diagnosis of vulvovaginal candidiasis. An additional 19 women (20 percent) had vulvovaginitis plus another type of vaginitis. Women who did not have vulvovaginal candidiasis were just as confident of their self-diagnosis as those who correctly identified the condition. Women reporting previous episodes of vulvovaginal candidiasis and those who reported reading the product information were no more accurate in self-diagnosis than other women.. The choice to initially use nonprescription medication was estimated to have delayed the correct diagnosis in 44 (46 percent) patients. The consequences of delay were ...

Results The incidence of GDM was 4.3%. Previously reported risk factors for GDM, including advanced maternal age, pre-pregnancy obesity and family history of diabetes, were strongly associated with an elevated GDM risk. Moreover, after the adjustment for the above-mentioned risk factors, a history of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis, residency in south China and a history of spontaneous abortion were significantly associated with an increased GDM risk; adjusted odds ratio (OR) [95% confidence interval (95% CI)] were 1.97 (1.39, 2.80), 1.84 (1.59-2.13), and 1.46 (1.12, 1.91), respectively. ...
A model for live Candida challenge to investigate vaginitis in women, while provocative, was a logical extension of data to date from animals and cross-sectional clinical studies that largely failed to reveal protective factors associated with vaginitis or the factors associated with susceptibility to infection. There was also good evidence, based on several properties of Candida in the reproductive tract, that a live Candida challenge protocol would be safe.. Surprisingly, fewer than 15% of women without a history of VVC became symptomatically infected, with the remaining women being equally split between those asymptomatically colonized and those not colonized. We assume that those not colonized did in fact have some vaginal fungal burden but that it was simply below the level of detection for swab cultures. Perhaps detection by PCR would have revealed a low-level colonization. Nevertheless, while these results did not aid significantly in identifying the events associated with infection or ...

Introduction The contribution of sexual transmission to genital Candida albicans infection remains unclear. Epidemiologic studies have shown that vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is associated with increased frequency of vaginal sex, receptive orogenital sex, and increased numbers of sexual partners. Correlation of candidal infection between sexual partners has been observed and studies using genotype comparison techniques suggest that genital C. albicans may be sexually transmitted. Nevertheless, conflicting evidence exists regarding treatment of male sexual partners of women with recurrent VVC. The objective of this study was to determine the concordance of C.albicans isolates among women who have sex with women (WSW) in sexual partnerships using the random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique.. ...

Use non-deodorant pads and/or tampons (if you use tampons please read our article about Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) about the danger of using tampons).. Also, if you are sexually active, many vaginal infections can be passed back and forth between you and your husband. Only one of you may show symptoms even though both of you may be infected. If the infection persists, or if your husband has any discharge, itching, or burning, then both of you will probably need to be treated by a doctor.. How To Reduce Your Risk Of Getting Vaginal Yeast Infections And How To Avoid Vaginal Yeast Infections. Gynecologists like to call the vagina a self-cleaning oven. This is because your vagina doesnt need any help with douches, scented gels, perfumes, and other feminine products to stay clean and healthy. In fact, rather than helping to prevent a vaginal yeast infection, these vaginal products can cause an imbalance of the healthy bacteria in your vagina which can make you more susceptible to a vaginal yeast ...
Yeast infections are typically caused by an overgrowth of a type of fungus called Candida (also called yeast). Yeast is normally found in many parts of your body, including your mouth, digestive tract and vagina. A vaginal yeast infection occurs when there is an overgrowth of yeast. There are many reasons why the level of yeast becomes too high.. In women with CF, one of the most common reasons for vaginal yeast infections is the use of antibiotics. Antibiotics kill normal bacteria in your vagina and allow the yeast to grow. You are most likely to get a yeast infection after puberty, around the time of your menstrual period, or when you start or change antibiotics.. Other causes for a vaginal yeast infection include: use of steroid medication, diabetes, pregnancy, being overweight, HIV infection, use of contraceptives, or wearing tight underwear made of material that traps moisture and heat (such as silk or rayon). ...
Anti-fungal drugs can cause side-effects such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some Candida strains become resistant to fluconazole, especially among people with low CD4 counts or who have taken it for a long time or several times in quick succession. Itraconazole or other anti-fungal therapies may be given when there is resistance or other intolerances.. Some people try bathing the genital area with diluted tea tree oil gel or live plain yoghurt to help relieve the symptoms of vulvovaginal candidiasis. There is little evidence that tea-tree oil helps and it can dry out the area, causing more irritation. There is no evidence to support dietary changes to reduce symptoms.. Anti-fungal drugs are available in other forms, such as a liquid solution for oral candidiasis, creams for skin or nail infections, and creams and pessaries for vaginal candidiasis. The topical treatments, such as creams and pessaries, can also damage latex condoms, so be careful of this if you are using them. Anti-fungal ...
Although premenstrual exacerbation of vulvovaginal symptoms attributed to Candida spp. is well documented, the causation of these symptoms is not well understood. This study describes the daily vaginal colonization of Candida in three women. A single pilot study was designed to test the methodology of the proposed randomized controlled trial, Garlic and Candida. This study reports the colonization of Candida spp. in three women. Ten women aged 18-50 who reported at least one episode of vulvovaginal candidiasis were recruited by the University of Melbourne. Each participant took daily vaginal swabs for 2 weeks during the luteal phase of their menstrual cycle, which were analysed for quantitative colony counts of Candida spp. Of these, three women were colonized with Candida spp. For the first time, to our knowledge, daily colonization of Candida during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle is described in three women, demonstrating an increase in the colony count preceding symptom development.

The aim of this prospective study was to explore the role of catastrophizing in vulvovaginal pain. The study entails two research questions. The first question was whether catastrophizing predicts the occurrence of vulvovaginal pain. The second question focused on exploring the links between catastrophizing, partner responses and pain. Five hundred and ten women filled out questionnaires at two measurement points, 10months apart. The women were divided into three groups based on levels of catastrophizing. To study the first research question, the groups were used as predictors of pain at follow-up. To study the second research question, the groups were compared regarding their perceived solicitous partner responses. Subsequently, two mediation models were tested to explore whether catastrophizing mediated the relationship between solicitous partner responses and pain, cross-sectionally and longitudinally. Baseline levels of catastrophizing distinguished between pain and no pain 10months later. ...
Update on alternative therapies for vulvovaginal atrophy Janet A Chollet1,2 1Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, 2Pear Tree Pharmaceuticals, Waltham, MA, USA Abstract: Although systemic absorption of estrogen with local treatment for vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) is most likely to be negligible, it is unknown whether this minimal absorption will affect outcomes in women with breast cancer. Use of adjuvant therapy with aromatase inhibitors for breast cancer is associated with high incidence of VVA symptoms. Because of the impact of moderate to severe VVA symptoms on the quality of life in breast cancer survivors, there has been an intense search for alternative therapies. Further, the publicity that followed the publication of data from the Women’s Health Initiative Study has led to the suggestion by the medical community to use the lowest dose therapy possible for minimal time duration in order to avoid risks. This article will highlight the progress in alternative therapies for VVA.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Current treatment options for vulvovaginal atrophy. AU - Burich, Rebekah. AU - Degregorio, Michael. PY - 2011/3. Y1 - 2011/3. N2 - Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA), a condition associated with declining estrogen levels, is commonly seen in postmenopausal women. VVA is marked by vaginal dryness, itching, dyspareunia and incontinence, which can contribute to diminishing quality of life for millions of postmenopausal women worldwide. Most available treatments contain estrogen, whether administered locally or systemically. Other treatment options include lubricants and moisturizers. These therapeutic approaches can provide temporary relief of some VVA symptoms while on therapy, but do not address the underlying condition, and they are not without potential side effects. However, promising new VVA therapies are in development that target the underlying condition with acceptable side-effect profiles. In this article, the benefits and drawbacks of current therapies and new treatments under ...
Fig. 4. MAb B6.1 given i.p. protects mice against vaginal infection due to C. albicans (A) or C. tropicalis(B). Pseudoestrus mice were given MAb B6.1 or B6 i.p. before an i.vg. challenge with yeast. Negative controls were treated with DPBS alone or with hybridoma culture medium (HB101) that was concentrated and prepared as for antibody production. In panel A, additional controls received either MAb S9, which is specific for type III group B streptococcus polysaccharide, or MAb 54.1, which is specific for human neutrophil cytochrome b. MAb B6.1-treated and MAb B6-treated mice developed approximately 91 and 51% fewer CFU, respectively, than the DPBS negative controls (P , 0.001 and P , 0.01, respectively). The medium alone and the irrelevant MAbs were not protective (A). A similar result was observed with vaginal infection due to C. tropicalis (B). The differences between MAb B6.1-treated mice and control mice were statistically significant (P , 0.01), but the differences between MAb B6-treated ...
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.. ...
Vulvovaginal candidiasis is a common cause of vaginal infections. This study investigates the efficiency of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) against yeast cells in mice. Methylene blue (MB), malachite green (MG), and a special designed protoporphirin (PpNetNI) were used as photosensitizers. Female BALB-c mice were infected with Candida albicans ATCC 90028. PDT was applied with two different light sources, intravaginal and transabdominal. Vaginal washes were performed and cultivated for microbial quantification. Antimicrobial PDT was able to decrease microbial content with MB and PpNetNI (p,0.05), it was not effective, however, with MG photosensitizer. The results of this study demonstrate that aPDT may be a viable alternative treatment for vaginal candidiasis ...
Objective: Our purpose was to examine the efficacy of a topical long-term treatment with boric acid versus an oral long-term treatment (itraconazole) in the cure and prevention of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis. Study Design: A prospective, nonrandomized study of patients affected by recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis was undertaken. In 3 years we recruited 22 consecutive patients who underwent therapy with itraconazole (group 1) or boric acid (group 2). Women were followed up for 1 year, with clinic and microbiologic controls after 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after the first visit. Results: During the treatment, the positive culture results (15.1% vs 12.1%) and the signs and symptoms (33.3% vs 24.2%) were similar within the 2 groups, with no significant statistical difference. With the withdrawal, after 6 months relapses were common in the 2 groups (54.5%). Conclusions: Boric acid seems to be a valid and promising therapy both in the cure of the vaginal infection and in the prevention of ...
Product Name: Clotrimazole Vaginal Tablets. Common Name: Anti-infective tablets. Strength: 100 mg. Description:. Clotrimazole is commonly available as an over-the-counter substance in various dosage forms, such as a cream, vaginal tablet, or as a prescription troche or throat lozenge.. Clotrimazole works to kill individual Candida or fungal cells by altering the permeability of the fungal cell wall. It binds tophospholipids in the cell membrane and inhibits the biosynthesis of ergosterol and other sterols required for cell membraneproduction. This leads to the cells death via loss of intracellular element. Indications and Usage:. Clotrimazole is used for vulvovaginal candidiasis (yeast infection) or yeast infections of the skin. For vulvovaginal candidiasis (yeast infection), clotrimazole tablets and creams are inserted into the vagina.

Background: Vulvovaginal candidiasis is a communal problem in virtually all the women which is caused by Candida albicans. Objective: Aim of the present study was to prepare and characterize vaginal suppositories of fluconazole for the treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis. Methods: Fluconazole suppositories were prepared using water soluble and fatty bases. Bases and their proportions used were selected in such a way that they have flexibility in storage conditions unlike conventional suppositories. Suppositories were prepared and examined for physical characteristics and in vitro release studies. Results: Present study showed ultimate results with respect to the physical characteristics of suppositories and in vitro drug release studies.

The over-the-counter treatments are an alternative for a few women when yeast is a cause of the disease. Though, it must be noted that illness other than yeast could cause same symptoms. These comprise bacterial vaginosis, gonorrhea and chlamydia. If the symptoms are not eradicated by over-the-counter results, patients must check with their doctor for assessment. Oral medicines for yeast vaginitis and vulvitis comprise fluconazole (Diflucan). Many doctors prefer vaginal yeast infections cures with vaginal tablets rather than the oral medications.. ...

Superficial infections of the skin and nails are the most common fungal diseases in humans and affect ~25% (or ~1.7 billion) of the general population worldwide (2). These infections are caused primarily by dermatophytes, which give rise to well-known conditions such as athletes foot (occurs in 1 in 5 adults), ringworm of the scalp (common in young children and thought to affect 200 million individuals worldwide), and infection of the nails (affects ~10% of the general population worldwide, although this incidence increases with age to ~50% in individuals 70 years and older) (2, 3). The incidence of each particular infection also varies with socioeconomic conditions, geographic region, and cultural habits. Mucosal infections of the oral and genital tracts are also common, especially vulvovaginal candidiasis (or thrush). In fact, 50 to 75% of women in their childbearing years suffer from at least one episode of vulvovaginitis, and 5 to 8% (~75 million women) have at least four episodes annually ...

Vaginal yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, are a common womens health problem caused by an overgrowth of fungus, most often Candida albicans. Candida albicans is normally found in small amounts in the human body, as are many different types of bacteria and yeast. In the vagina there is one particular bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus, that helps to keep the balance of healthy bacteria and yeasts. A change in pH or a change in estrogen levels can throw off this healthy balance, as can antibiotics, and certain health problems.

The majority of women will experience at least one vaginal yeast infection in their lifetime, and some women experience frequent, recurring yeast infections. Yeast infections are more common during pregnancy, in those doing estrogen hormone replacement therapy, in those with uncontrolled diabetes, in those with ...
