C. lusitaniae is considered an opportunistic organism whose association with invasive infection has increased in recent years (1, 2, 3, 5, 16). Unlike Candida albicans, which is rarely resistant to amphotericin B, C. lusitaniae has consistently been associated with the failure of amphotericin B treatment in patients with invasive disease (3, 10, 14, 15). Resistance may be innate or may develop during treatment.. Here we report the first clinical case of C. lusitaniae developing amphotericin B resistance during amphotericin B treatment and exhibiting an accompanying difference in colony color on CAC between susceptible and resistant strains. The antifungal susceptibility tests performed according to the NCCLS M-27A macrobroth method by a reference laboratory showed a fourfold increase of the amphotericin B MIC for the isolate recovered after 7 weeks of amphotericin B treatment compared to that for an isolate recovered prior to amphotericin B treatment. The MIC of 1.0 μg/ml reported for the ...

To assess the mortality and resource utilization that results from acute renal failure associated with amphotericin B therapy, 707 adult admissions in which parenteral amphotericin B therapy was given were studied at a tertiary-care hospital. Main outcome measures were mortality, length of stay, and costs; we controlled for potential confounders, including age, sex, insurance status, baseline creatinine level, length of stay before beginning amphotericin B therapy, and severity of illness. Among 707 admissions, there were 212 episodes (30%) of acute renal failure. When renal failure developed, the mortality rate was much higher: 54% versus 16% (adjusted odds of death, 6.6). When acute renal failure occurred, the mean adjusted increase in length of stay was 8.2 days, and the adjusted total cost was $29,823. Although residual confounding exists despite adjustment, the increases in resource utilization that we found are large and the associated mortality is high when acute renal failure occurs ...
Both intrinsic and acquired resistance to amphotericin B have been documented for Candida lusitaniae. Amphotericin B remains the drug of choice for many critical fungal infections, and the detection of resistance is essential to monitor treatment effectively. The limitations of the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) reference methodology for detection of amphotericin B resistance are well documented, and several alternative methods have been proposed. Etest assays with RPMI and antibiotic medium 3 (AM3) agar were compared to the NCCLS M27-A broth macrodilution method using AM3 for amphotericin B resistance testing with 49 clinical isolates of C. lusitaniae. The panel included nine isolates with known or presumed resistance to amphotericin B on the basis of in vivo and/or in vitro data. The distribution of amphotericin B MICs by Etest with RPMI ranged from 0.032 to 16 μg/ml and was bimodal. All of the putatively resistant isolates were inhibited by amphotericin B at ...

Cryptococcal meningitis is a life-threatening infectious complication of AIDS. Because relapse after treatment occurs in over 50 percent of cases, chronic maintenance therapy with intravenous (IV) amphotericin B is usually given. However, amphotericin B is not always effective, has toxic effects, and must be given by the intravenous route. Fluconazole is an antifungal agent that can be given orally and has been shown to be effective against cryptococcal infections in animals and against acute CM in a few AIDS patients. Also, the side effects experienced by over 2000 patients or volunteers given fluconazole have seldom been severe enough to require withdrawal of the drug.. Patients accepted in the trial are randomly assigned to fluconazole or amphotericin B. Fluconazole is given orally once a day and amphotericin B is given intravenously once a week. Dosages depend on body weight. Medications may be given with amphotericin B to prevent or reduce discomfort from associated side effects. Patients ...
Efficacies of High-Dose Fluconazole plus Amphotericin B and High-Dose Fluconazole plus 5-Fluorocytosine versus Amphotericin B, Fluconazole, and 5-Fluorocytosine
Objective: Amphotericin B failure is frequently seen in patients with candidaemia caused by Candida rugosa. We evaluated amphotericin 13, fluconazole, posaconazole and voriconazole as alternative treatments against infection in mice with two isolates of C. rugosa.Methods: Neutropenic mice were inoculated intravenously with C. rugosa. Amphotericin 13, fluconazole, posaconazole and voriconazole were administered for 7 days after infection. Efficacy of the antifungal treatment was assessed by survival and tissue burden of C. rugosa.Results: All of the four drugs significantly prolonged survival over controls. With both isolates, kidney counts were reduced significantly below controls for amphotericin B, fluconazole and posaconazole. However, voriconazole was less effective than the other antifungals.Conclusion: Despite poor clinical response to amphotericin B, in vivo data indicate that amphotericin B increases organ clearance and survival over untreated controls. However, although voriconazole ...
Background. For patients with Indian visceral leishmaniasis, amphotericin B deoxycholate is usually given as 15 alternate-day infusions of 1 mg/kg over 30 days (total dose, 15 mg/kg); daily treatment with 1 mg/kg for 20 days (total dose, 20 mg/kg) is also used. This study was done to address the unsettled therapeutic questions of administration schedule (alternate-day vs. daily administration) and dose (1 vs. 0.75 mg/kg) and to determine whether the duration of amphotericin B treatment in Bihar, India, can be shortened to 15 days.. Methods. To compare alternate-day versus daily administration and 1-mg/kg versus 0.75-mg/kg doses and to determine whether the duration of treatment could be abbreviated, Indian subjects randomly received 15 infusions of 1 mg/kg (group A; 245 patients) or 0.75 mg/kg (group B; 244 patients) on alternate days or 1 mg/kg (group C; 500 patients) or 0.75 mg/kg (group D; 496 patients) daily. Noninferiority testing compared 6-month cure rates using a 5% margin.. Results. ...

The increased use of liposomal amphotericin B (L-AMB) in neonates has occurred without evidence of increased efficacy or safety, results of a retrospective analysis presented at IDWeek 2013.
Visceral Leishmaniasis, which is progressive and fatal if not treated, is an insidious, chronic disease that is characterized by irregular fever, anorexia, weight loss, cough, gross enlargement of the spleen and liver, mild anemia and emaciation. This may be preceded by rigors and vomiting. If untreated, Kala-azar, which is the most severe form of Leishmaniasis, has a mortality rate of nearly 100%.. The goal of the project is to establish that a single dose of AMPHOMUL® can be used to achieve a Definitive cure for Visceral Leishmaniasis leading to a short course therapy. The project will also seek to establish that AMPHOMUL ® is safe, at least as effective and more affordable than current treatment, and is without the risk of drug resistance.. The trial is a Prospective, Multicentric, Randomized, Two Arm, Open label Phase III study to Assess Efficacy and Safety of Infusion of Amphomul® (Amphotericin B Emulsion) as Compared to Liposomal Amphotericin B in Patients of Visceral Leishmaniasis ...
Antifungal agents may differ in their fungicidal activities against Aspergillus spp. In order to compare the fungicidal activities of voriconazole and amphotericin B against 40 isolates of Aspergillus fumigatus, A. flavus, and A. terreus, we developed a new microbroth colorimetric method for assessing fungicidal activities and determining minimal fungicidal concentrations (MFCs). This methodology follows the antifungal susceptibility testing reference method M-38A for MIC determination. After drug removal and addition of fresh medium, growth of viable conidia adhering to the bottoms of the microtitration wells was assessed by a colorimetric assay of metabolic activity after 24 h of incubation. The new method was faster (six times), reproducible (92 to 97%), and in agreement with culture-based MFCs (91 to 100%). Differential fungicidal activities of voriconazole and amphotericin B were found among the three Aspergillus species, with A. fumigatus and A. flavus having the lowest (1 and 2 mg/liter, ...

Surgical resection of the "fungus ball" and intravenous amphotericin B is the recommended therapy. If zygomycosis is suspected, prompt amphotericin B therapy should be administered due to the rapid spread and mortality rate of the disease. Amphotericin B (which works by damaging the cell walls of the fungi) is usually administered for a further 4-6 weeks after initial therapy begins to ensure eradication of the infection. Posaconazole has been shown to be effective against zygomycosis, perhaps more so than amphotericin B, but has not yet replaced it as the standard of care. After administration the patient must then be admitted to surgery for removal of the "fungus ball". The disease must be monitored carefully for any signs of reemergence.[5] Surgical therapy can be very drastic, and in some cases of Rhinocerebral disease removal of infected brain tissue may be required. In some cases surgery may be disfiguring because it may involve removal of the palate, nasal cavity, or eye structures.[3] ...
Based on the enhanced fluorescence of amphotericin B in acid solutions, a quantitative assay for this polyene antibiotic has been developed that is sensitive and linear in the range of 0.1 to 10.0 muM. The binding of amphotericin B to Saccharomyces cerevisiae was assayed under various conditions as the amount bound to cells in a dialysis chamber or after centrifugation. Two types of binding were defined: weak, reversible binding occurred at 0 C or higher temperatures and even in the presence of inhibitors of energy metabolism, whereas strong, irreversible binding did not occur at 0 C and was inhibited when energy metabolism was blocked. Only strong binding was correlated with cell killing. Weak binding probably involves the outer layer of the membrane; strong binding probably requires disruption of hydrophobic regions of the cell membrane.

Objectives A suspension for oral use which consists of three non-absorbable antibiotics (amphotericin B, colistin and tobramycin) is often used in clinical practice for the selective decontamination of the digestive tract (SDD) of patients in intensive care. Such a therapy is a preventive tool to minimise the risk of pneumonia and bacteraemia in intubated patients. The administration and the treatment results are controversially discussed. One limiting factor for a unique SDD treatment in the hospitals is a lack of adequate data regarding batch formula and stability for such a formulation. Since no detailed procedures, specifications or stability data are available for manufacturing this formulation there may be discrepancies regarding formulation and stability of suspensions prepared in different pharmacies. The aim of this research was to collect the physicochemical and microbiological stability data of a developed, stable standard formulation under defined storage conditions. The ...
A Double-Blind, Randomized, Controlled Trial of Amphotericin B Colloidal Dispersion versus Amphotericin B for Treatment of Invasive Aspergillosis in Immunocompromised Patients [Bowden R et al. CID 2002;35:359]: The authors report a multicenter randomized, double-blind trial of Amphotec (ABCD) in a dose of 6 mg/kg/day vs. Amphotericin B in a dose of 1.0-1.5 mg/kg/day for treatment of invasive aspergillosis in 174 patients. The diagnosis was considered "proven" if there was a compatible clinical illness and detection of aspergillus by stain or culture from a normally sterile site, or proven with histopathology; it was "probable" if pulmonary with typical clinical and x-ray findings combined with two positive sputum cultures or a positive stain or culture from a BAL. Of the 174 participants, 88 were given ABCD and 86 were given Amphotericin B. Most of the patients had a hematologic malignancy (70%) and/or a bone marrow transplant (42%). Sites of infection included lungs in 66%, sinuses in 15%, and ...

SAN FRANCISCO-Amphotericin B lipid complex may be the treatment of choice for patients with hematogenous or invasive candidiasis, Elias J. Anaissie, MD, said at the 35th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC).
NEW ORLEANS-High doses of liposomal amphotericin B are no more effective than low doses in the treatment of invasive aspergillosis in neutropenic patients, European researchers reported at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy. 1
Amphotericin B modifies the permeability properties of thin lipid membranes formed from solutions containing sheep red cell phospholipids and cholesterol. At 10-6 M amphotericin B, the DC membrane resistance fell from ≈108 to ≈102 ohm-cm2, and the membranes became Cl--, rather than Na+-selective; the permeability coefficients for hydrophilic nonelectrolytes increased in inverse relationship to solute size, and the rate of water flow during osmosis increased 30-fold. These changes may be rationalized by assuming that the interaction of amphotericin B with membrane-bound sterol resulted in the formation of aqueous pores. N-acetylamphotericin B and the methyl ester of N-acetylamphotericin B, but not the smaller ring compounds, filipin, rimocidin, and PA-166, produced comparable permeability changes in identical membranes, and amphotericin B and its derivatives produced similar changes in the properties of membranes formed from phospholipid-free sterol solutions. However, amphotericin B did not ...

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 ...
There are very few drug delivery systems that target key organs via the oral route, as oral delivery advances normally address gastrointestinal drug dissolution, permeation, and stability. Here we introduce a nanomedicine in which nanoparticles, while also protecting the drug from gastric degradation, are taken up by the gastrointestinal epithelia and transported to the lung, liver, and spleen, thus selectively enhancing drug bioavailability in these target organs and diminishing kidney exposure (relevant to nephrotoxic drugs). Our work demonstrates, for the first time, that oral particle uptake and translocation to specific organs may be used to achieve a beneficial therapeutic response. We have illustrated this using amphotericin B, a nephrotoxic drug encapsulated within N-palmitoyl-N-methyl-N,N-dimethyl-N,N,N-trimethyl-6-O-glycol chitosan (GCPQ) nanoparticles, and have evidenced our approach in three separate disease states (visceral leishmaniasis, candidiasis, and aspergillosis) using ...
One randomized, open-label, active-controlled study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of IMPAVIDO in the treatment of visceral leishmaniasis in Bihar, India, an area where L. donovani is known epidemiologically to be the prevalent infecting species. Patients ≥ 12 years of age with clinical signs and symptoms compatible with visceral leishmaniasis (fever, splenomegaly, and cytopenia) confirmed by the presence of Leishmania amastigotes in aspirates of spleen or bone marrow were randomized to receive oral IMPAVIDO or intravenous amphotericin B deoxycholate in a 3:1 ratio. Patients weighing ≥ 25 kg received an IMPAVIDO 50 mg capsule with meals twice a day. Patients weighing , 25 kg received an IMPAVIDO 50 mg capsule with meals once a day in the morning. Weight ranged between 15 and 67 kg (mean weight 38.6 kg) and BMI ranged between 8.2 and 24 (mean 16.1). No patient weighed more than 70kg. Amphotericin B was administered intravenously over 6 continuous hours at 1 mg/kg every other day for ...

In this randomized, double-blind, dose-ranging, multicenter trial, 84 patients with visceral leishmaniasis refractory to antimony therapy were administered liposomal amphotericin B (AmBisome) at cumulative doses of 3.75, 7.5, and 15.0 mg/kg for 5 consecutive days. Posttreatment apparent cure and definite cure were assessed at 2 weeks and 6 months after the end of therapy, respectively. Mild to moderate infusion-related fever and rigors were seen in 29 and 44% of patients, respectively. One patient each in the 3.75- and 7.5-mg groups had detectable parasites on splenic smear at posttreatment evaluation. At 6 months' follow-up, however, 2, 1, and 1 patients relapsed in the 3.75-, 7.5-, and 15.0-mg groups, resulting in definite cure rates of 89, 93, and 97%, respectively. There was no significant difference in the cure rates of the 3 groups. Low-dose liposomal amphotericin B given for 5 days can cure most patients with Indian kala-azar.
The in vitro and in vivo toxicities and activities of MS-8209, a new hydrosoluble amphotericin B (deoxycholate-amphotericin B [D-AmB]; Fungizone) derivative, were studied. In vitro, MS-8209 was less toxic than AmB against renal tubular cells in primary culture and less active against Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neoformans. However, at 10-fold the AmB concentration, MS-8209 in vitro antifungal activity paralleled that of AmB. Fifty-percent lethal doses of MS-8209 and D-AmB in OF1 noninfected mice were 26 and 2.3 mg/kg, respectively. Therapeutic efficacy of MS-8209 was assessed in murine candidiasis, cryptococcosis, and aspergillosis. In each model of infection, we determined the maximum tolerated dosages of MS-8209 and D-AmB, i.e., the dosage inducing less than 15% mortality due to toxicity; the efficacies of MS-8209 and D-AmB at their respective maximum tolerated dosages were compared. In candidiasis, MS-8209 (15 mg/kg) significantly increased the survival time compared with D-AmB (0.5 ...

However, because of the high cost of the lipid preparations, their use at many centers is reserved for patients who fail to respond to standard amphotericin B. Since the side effects of the formulations differ, unnecessary switching from one to another is not recommended. Although fluconazole is efficacious in the treatment of infections due to many Candida spp., its use against serious fungal infections in immunocompromised patients is limited by its narrow spectrum: it has no activity against Aspergillus or against several non-albicans Candida spp.The release of newer broad-spectrum azoles (such as voriconazole and posaconazole) has provided another option for the treatment of Aspergillus infection (including CNS infection, in which amphotericin B has usually failed). In fact, experience indicates that these drugs may well supplant amphotericin B as the mainstay of treatment because of their lesser toxicity and better penetration into cerebrospinal fluid and other sites. Clinicians should be ...
Sixty-nine patients between the ages of 18 and 80 with invasive aspergillosis were enrolled in an open-label, noncomparative study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of caspofungin. Enrolled patients had previously been refractory to or intolerant of other antifungal therapy (ies). Refractory patients were classified as those who had disease progression or failed to improve despite therapy for at least 7 days with amphotericin B, lipid formulations of amphotericin B, itraconazole, or an investigational azole with reported activity against Aspergillus. Intolerance to previous therapy was defined as a doubling of creatinine (or creatinine ≥2.5 mg/dL while on therapy), other acute reactions, or infusion-related toxicity. To be included in the study, patients with pulmonary disease must have had definite (positive tissue histopathology or positive culture from tissue obtained by an invasive procedure) or probable (positive radiographic or computed tomography evidence with ...
Studies have found evidence that amphotericin opens up ion channels in membranes, perhaps making them leakier to charged atoms that could disrupt a cell. Most scientists assumed that this was the drugs main mode of action. But the evidence also suggested that amphotericin interacted with sterols, such as cholesterol in animal cells and ergosterol in yeast. Rienstra and Burke focused on amphotericins influence on sterols, hypothesizing that this might be a key to its toxicity ...
