In the HIV-infected population, the occurrence of fungal infections is largely dependent upon the degree of CD4+ T-lymphocyte depletion as well as exposure to endemic dimorphic fungi.1..

Fluorescence of many fungi is noted when H&E stained sections are examined under a fluorescent microscope. In theory, this phenomenon could aid in the diagnosis of cutaneous and disseminated fungal infections without the delay associated with special stains. Seventy-six cases of superficial and deep fungal infections and 3 cases of protothecosis were studied to determine the clinical usefulness of this technique. In most cases, fluorescence was noted, but was not intense. Fluorescence of fungi did not correlate with the age of the specimen. In most cases, organisms in H&E stained sections were more easily identified with routine light microscopy than with fluorescent microscopy. This report suggests that in H&E stained skin specimens, fluorescent microscopy is of little benefit in the identification of fungal organisms.
In this prospective phase II observational study, we plan to assess the efficacy and tolerability of caspofungin based combined anti-fungal therapy for proven or probable IFI in a group of patients received allo-HSCT transplantation with high risk of IFI: HLA matched unrelated donor or mismatched donor conditioning with ATG containing regimen or present III-IV aGVHD or extensive GVHD undergoing high-dose steroid treatment ...
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). ...

Invasive fungal diseases (IFD) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in premature neonates and immunocompromised pediatric patients. Their diagnostic and therapeutic management remains a challenge. A nationwide survey was conducted among 13 of the largest pediatric units in the United Ki
Invasive fungal infections (IFI) are life-threatening diseases that are of particular concern in specific debilitated or immunosuppressed populations. Invasive candidiasis (IC) is the most frequent of the IFI, being one of the major causes of nosocomial bloodstream infection and a feared complication in patients with recurrent gastrointestinal surgery or prolonged stay in the intensive-care unit [1,2]. Patients with hematological malignancies or prolonged chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, and those with allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT), represent the groups at highest risk for developing invasive aspergillosis (IA), which is associated with a high mortality rate despite the increasing availability of antifungal therapies [3,4]. An increasing incidence of IA has also been reported in non-neutropenic immunosuppressed populations such as solid-organ transplant recipients or steroid-treated patients with chronic pulmonary diseases [5]. Early diagnosis of IFI is crucial ...

The number of planned study sites is approximately ten in the United States and approximately eight in the rest of the world. ...
The aim of this multicenter prospective study was to evaluate the incidence of invasive fungal infections (IFIs) in adult and pediatric patients with hematologic malignancies, involving nine nosocomial facilities in Southern Italy over a period of 18 months. Furthermore, results of an environmental microbial surveillance routinely carried out in some of the enrolled hospitals are reported. A total of 589 onco-hematological patients were enrolled and 27 IFIs were documented. The main infections were caused by yeasts, more than filamentous fungi (overall incidence of 2.7% and 1.9%, respectively). The yeasts were mainly represented by Candida spp. (87.5%), all isolated by blood cultures; C. parapsilosis was the most common species. Among mould infections, the most frequent site was the lung, with regard to aspergillosis (81.8%). In six of the 10 patients with suspected aspergillosis, the diagnosis was made by the detection of galactomannan and (1,3)-β-d-glucan antigens. The microbiological surveillance
Fungal diseases are significant causes of mortality and morbidity in both the developed and the developing world. The recent increases in the incidence and severity of invasive fungal infections are directly attributable to new susceptible patient populations. Examples of these large, at-risk populations include patients with AIDS; hospitalized patients being treated for cancer and autoimmune disorders; andthose receiving organ transplants. Despite this increasing threat, our understanding of the basic pathophysiology of fungal disease lags far behind our understanding of bacterial, parasitic and viral diseases. Furthermore, the number of antifungal therapies in clinical use is limited, and there is a paucity of novel antifungal strategies in the current drug pipeline. To address the need for more research in the area of fungal diseases, this course aims to: a) increase students breadth of knowledge in fungal pathogenesis research. b) introduce and explore both standard and cutting edge model ...

Title: Application of Radioisotopes in Anti-Fungal Research and Fungal Disease Studies. VOLUME: 3 ISSUE: 4. Author(s):A. R. Jalilian, D. Sardari and S. Sardari. Affiliation:Department of Biotechnology,Pasteur Institute, No. 69, Pasteur St., Tehran 13164, Iran.. Keywords:antifungal, radiolabeled, fungal biochemistry, mycoses, fungal metabolites, drug discovery, diagnosis, and antifungal therapy. Abstract: The substantial increase in the incidence of fungal infections during the past two decades has been suggested as the major cause of morbidity and mortality among immunocompromised patients. Aggressive immunosuppression, HIV-1 infection, cancer, and organ transplantation have opened the door to pathogenic fungal organisms. Disseminated candidiasis and pulmonary aspergillosis caused by emerging opportunistic fungi are the most common of the serious mycoses. Reliability of radioisotope-based measurements and specificity of immune reactions, radioimmune tests, like radioimmunoassay (RIA) and ...

The University of Tennessee Health Science Centers Glen Palmer, PhD, an associate professor in the Department of Clinical Pharmacy, has received a $451,625 National Institutes of Health R21 award. Dr. Palmer will pursue an innovative antifungal chemical screening strategy titled, "Broad Spectrum Antifungals Targeting Fatty Acid Biosynthesis.". There are approximately 1.5 million deaths per year due to invasive fungal infections (IFI), and many millions more suffer from debilitating superficial and deep fungal infections. A lack of adequate antifungal therapies has created a desperate need for new approaches to treatment and to combat the rise of resistant fungi. Dr. Palmer and his collaborators will apply a novel chemical assay design to identify physiologically active and fungal selective inhibitors of fatty acid (FA) biosynthesis, specifically fatty acid synthase (FAS) and the Ole1p FA desaturase.. "Our lab has developed a new approach that can dramatically speed up and improve the efficiency ...
