diflucan dosage yeast

A series of novel coumarinazoles were designed, synthesized, and characterized by IR, NMR, MS and HRMS spectra. The bioactive assay for the newly prepared compounds against six bacteria and five fungi manifested that most new compounds exhibited good or even stronger antibacterial and antifungal activities in comparison with reference drugs Chloromycin, Norfloxacin and Fluconazole. Bis-azole alcohols 7a and 7d-e showed better anti-Candida utilis activity than mono-azole derivatives 4a and 4d-e at the tested concentrations, and they were more potent than the clinical Fluconazole. While triazole alcohol 7a gave comparable anti-Candida albicans and anti-Candida mycoderma activity to Fluconazole and better anti-MRSA activity than mono-triazole one 4a and clinical Norfloxacin. 1H-Benzoimidazol-2-ylthio coumarin derivatives 4e and 7e gave the strongest anti-Escherichia coli JM109 efficacy. Oxiran-2-ylmethoxy moiety was found to be a beneficial fragment to improve antibacterial and antifungal activity to some extent.

Infections due to the yeast Rhodotorula are rare in humans. R. mucilaginosa is responsible for the majority of human cases, and immunocompromised individuals with central venous catheters are at greatest risk. There are few reports of bloodstream infections due to R. mucilaginosa in immunocompetent patients. We present a case report of fungemia due to R. mucilaginosa in an immunocompetent, critically ill patient, with good evolution with catheter removal and fluconazole therapy. We briefly review the spectrum of infections due to R. mucilaginosa and the management of bloodstream infections due to this yeast.

Voriconazole, a recently licensed extended-spectrum azole, with demonstrated efficacy against aspergillus, is currently being tested as a potential prophylactic agent against aspergillus and other invasive fungal infections. Logistic issues--such as patient selection, choice of comparator, blinding of study drugs, duration of study drug administration, and how to handle empirical amphotericin B for possible invasive fungal infections--and analytic concerns, including choice and definition of the primary end point and the potential confounding effect of informative censoring (as a result of noninfectious events), were considered in the design of the clinical trial.

In this study, a simple, rapid and sensitive ultra-performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) method is described for determination of fluconazole (FLA) in human plasma samples using phenacetin as the internal standard (IS). Sample preparation was accomplished through one-step protein precipitation by methanol, and chromatographic separation was performed on an Acquity BEH C18 column (2.1 mm×50 mm, 1.7 μm) with mobile phase consisted of acetonitrile and water containing 0.1% formic acid (40:60, v/v) at a flow of 0.45 mL/min. Mass spectrometric analysis was performed using a QTrap 5500 mass spectrometer coupled with an electro-spray ionization (ESI) source in the positive ion mode. The MRM transition of m/z 307.2→238.2 was used to quantify for FLA. The linearity of this method was found to be within the concentration range of 10-6 000 ng/mL for FLA in human plasma. Only 1.0 min was needed for an analytical run. The method herein described was superior to previous methods and was successfully applied to the pharmacokinetic study of FLA in healthy Chinese volunteers after oral administration.

ITC and PCZ were moderately effective against S. brasiliensis (MIC90 = 2 and 2 μg/mL, respectively) and S. schenckii (MIC90 = 4 and 2 μg/mL, respectively). PCZ also showed low MICs against the rare species S. mexicana. 5FC, CAS, and FLC showed no antifungal activity against any Sporothrix species. The minimum fungicidal concentration ranged from 2 to >16 μg/mL for AMB against S. brasiliensis and S. schenckii, while the MFC90 was >16 μg/mL for ITC, VRC, and PCZ.

The drugs were effective in 83% of patients: poor effect was in 28%, moderate--in 21% and good--in 34% of cases. 5 (17%) patients did not respond. Mild, moderate and severe AD responded in 87, 36 and 60% of patients, respectively. The highest response was registered in patients without sensitization to yeast fungi (78%) or low sensitization (83%). In high sensitization the effect occurred in 57% of the cases.

Cases were defined as culture-confirmed invasive C. gattii infections among residents of Oregon and Washington States during 2004-2011. Clinical data were abstracted from medical records through one year of follow-up. Recommended initial treatment for central nervous system (CNS), bloodstream, and severe pulmonary infections is amphotericin B and 5-flucytosine; for non-severe pulmonary infections, recommended initial treatment is fluconazole. Alternative initial treatment was defined as any other initial antifungal treatment.

The incidence of fungal and yeast infections, especially Candida and Aspergillus, as well as other newer fungal infections has increased considerably in recent years. Treatment failures are due to microbiological or clinical resistance, the latter being related to the drug, host factors, the fungus and the therapeutic procedures. An overview of efforts to find correlations between microbiological and clinical resistance is presented. The NCCLS M27-A consensus document for in vitro susceptibility testing of Candida and Cryptococcus is a good attempt at this, as is the M38-P for some filamentous fungi. The data available thus far indicate that there is a relationship between in vitro resistance and clinical failure, but not between in vitro susceptibility and therapeutic success. Furthermore, the breakpoints (MIC) that can be applied to the susceptibility tests are established based more on the resistance limits than on susceptibility. MIC data are also essential to obtain distribution profiles of MIC values for fungal populations and for future correlations of MICs with clinical response.

We report on a 39-year-old AIDS patient who presented a generalized cryptococcal disease with involvement of the lungs and central nervous system. Although the initial symptoms were mild and uncharacteristic, the radiological finding of cavernous destructions of the lungs (cryptococcoma) was detectable. The patient recovered after an initial 3 week therapy with amphotericin B and fluconazole followed by secondary prevention with fluconacole. The cavernous destructions receded within 4 months. Though the respiratory tract is the presumed port of entry for Cryptococcus neoformans, a cavernous destruction of pulmonary tissue without a diffuse infiltration of the lungs is a rare manifestation of cryptococcosis even in HIV patients.

Many issues need to be addressed by the Intensive Care Unit physician in the decision-making process regarding antifungal therapy for Candida infection, most importantly pharmacokinetic concerns and/or organ failure limitations. In addition, the extensive use of antifungal agents can select for Candida spp. that exhibit decreased susceptibility to these agents. However, the risk appears low, even in the case of prophylactic or pre-emptive antifungal therapy, but this needs to be confirmed in large-scale studies.

Biofilms are microbial communities, embedded in a polymeric matrix, growing attached to a surface. Nearly all device-associated infections involve growth in the biofilm life style. Biofilm communities have characteristic architecture and distinct phenotypic properties. The most clinically important phenotype involves extraordinary resistance to antimicrobial therapy, making biofilm infections very difficulty to cure without device removal. The current studies examine drug resistance in Candida albicans biofilms. Similar to previous reports, we observed marked fluconazole and amphotericin B resistance in a C. albicans biofilm both in vitro and in vivo. We identified biofilm-associated cell wall architectural changes and increased beta-1,3 glucan content in C. albicans cell walls from a biofilm compared to planktonic organisms. Elevated beta-1,3 glucan levels were also found in the surrounding biofilm milieu and as part of the matrix both from in vitro and in vivo biofilm models. We thus investigated the possible contribution of beta-glucans to antimicrobial resistance in Candida albicans biofilms. Initial studies examined the ability of cell wall and cell supernatant from biofilm and planktonic C. albicans to bind fluconazole. The cell walls from both environmental conditions bound fluconazole; however, four- to fivefold more compound was bound to the biofilm cell walls. Culture supernatant from the biofilm, but not planktonic cells, bound a measurable amount of this antifungal agent. We next investigated the effect of enzymatic modification of beta-1,3 glucans on biofilm cell viability and the susceptibility of biofilm cells to fluconazole and amphotericin B. We observed a dose-dependent killing of in vitro biofilm cells in the presence of three different beta-glucanase preparations. These same concentrations had no impact on planktonic cell viability. beta-1,3 Glucanase markedly enhanced the activity of both fluconazole and amphotericin B. These observations were corroborated with an in vivo biofilm model. Exogenous biofilm matrix and commercial beta-1,3 glucan reduced the activity of fluconazole against planktonic C. albicans in vitro. In sum, the current investigation identified glucan changes associated with C. albicans biofilm cells, demonstrated preferential binding of these biofilm cell components to antifungals, and showed a positive impact of the modification of biofilm beta-1,3 glucans on drug susceptibility. These results provide indirect evidence suggesting a role for glucans in biofilm resistance and present a strong rationale for further molecular dissection of this resistance mechanism to identify new drug targets to treat biofilm infections.

11 of 26 investigators reported a total of 33 patients with substantial alopecia related to fluconazole therapy. Underlying mycoses included blastomycosis, sporotrichosis, histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, coccidioidomycosis, and mucosal candidiasis. In separate MSG studies, 17 of 136 (12.5%) and 8 of 40 (20%) patients had substantial reversible alopecia associated with fluconazole therapy. Eight patients who were not in the protocol had similar adverse effects. Twenty-nine of 33 patients (88%) received at least 400 mg of fluconazole daily for a mean of 7.1 months. Alopecia developed a median of 3 months after initiation of fluconazole therapy and involved the scalp in all patients. Other sites were involved in about one third of patients. Three patients required wigs because of extensive hair loss. Alopecia resolved within 6 months of discontinuation of fluconazole therapy or reduction of the daily dose by at least 50%.

Among all 140 cases positive for filamentous fungi in sputum culture, only 22 cases could be diagnosed as IPFI. Two of 22 IPFI cases were confirmed by post-operative pathology, 1 case was confirmed by positive blood culture for filamentous fungi and the remaining 19 cases were diagnosed clinically according to the nature of hosts, characteristics of pulmonary infections and microbiological evidence (positive sputum culture for filamentous fungi, 2 - 5 times for each case). Most of etiological fungi in IPFI patients belonged to Aspergillus. And the identity of isolated fungal strain was mostly one strain for each patient. In IPFI group, patients who had been treated with broad-spectrum antibiotics (100%), steroids (13, 59.1%) or immunosuppressant (7, 31.8%) or who had pulmonary X-ray imaging changes (100%), primary diseases (21, 95.5%), hypoalbuminemia (18, 81.8%) or hemoptysis (10, 45.5%), were significantly more than those in non-IPFI group (66.9%, 34.7%, 18.6%, 79.7%, 72.0%, 45.8% and 4.2% respectively; P < 0.05 for each item). In IPFI group, itraconazole, amphotericin B and/or voriconazole were administrated, 8 patients (36.4%) were cured and 14 patients (63.6%) passed away. In non-IPFI group, the patients were treated with antibiotics, fluconazole, anti-tuberculosis, steroids or combined with immunosuppressant, chemotherapy or bronchoalveolar lavage; 96 cases (81.4%) were cured or showed improvement, and 22 cases (18.6%) died or gave up further treatment.

The antimycotic activity of fluconazole against the filamentous form of Pityrosporum ovale was studied in vitro. P. ovale was grown on human stratum corneum in vitro with and without the addition of different concentrations of fluconazole. In control cultures hyphae were produced in 25% of the cells compared to only 4% after exposure to fluconazole 1 microgram/ml. In control cultures 16% of the fungal cells showed signs of necrosis, due to the normal turnover rate of the cells, compared to 65% of the fungal cells exposed to 1 microgram/ml of fluconazole. In the transmission electron microscope the typical thick-walled fungal cells with their characteristic budding were observed in control cultures. However, after exposure to 1 microgram/ml of fluconazole that P. ovale cells showed extensive signs of necrosis, with loss of internal organelles and disinterruption of the cell wall. The results obtained in this in vitro model mimic the in vivo situation in pityriasis versicolor. There is a parallel between the good results obtained in this system and the good clinical effect of fluconazole in Pityrosporum-related diseases.

Using conventional PCR, 27 (84.4%) of the isolates were identified as C. neoformans var. grubii mating-type alpha and serotype A. Using the AFLP fingerprinting, it was shown that 16 (50%) of the C. neoformans strains were genotype AFLP1, 13 (40.6%) were genotype AFLP1B, 2 (6.3%) were genotype AFLP2, and 1 (3.1%) was found to be a hybrid between both C. neoformans varieties (genotype AFLP3). The antifungal susceptibility profiles for amphotericin B, fluconazole and voriconazole showed that all the 32 C. neoformans are sensitive to these antifungal compounds.

Antifungal treatments for onychomycoses may be long and expensive without, however, affording the guarantee of success. A review of the literature reveals that the current topical treatments and the oral intake of fluconazole are of long duration. They show diflucan buy moderate clinical efficacy and/or a pharmaco-economic profile less favorable than those of intermittent itraconazole therapy and terbinafine continuous therapy. Between the latter two options, itraconazole has some advantages because of its broad spectrum of activity against diverse types of fungi responsible for onychomycoses. The fungicidal activity of terbinafine exhibited in vitro cannot unfortunately be claimed in the in vivo situation when treating a patient. Some interactions exist between these antifungals and a few other drugs. Other side effects are rare and usually discrete and reversible.

In vitro interaction of fluconazole and baicalein (BE) was investigated against 30 fluconazole-resistant Suprax Tablets clinical isolates of Candida albicans. Synergistic activities were determined using the checkerboard microdilution assay based on the fractional inhibitory concentration indices. Organisms were also tested against the 2 drugs singly and in combination using time-kill methods. Both fluconazole and BE showed weak antifungal activity when tested alone. However, the combination of fluconazole and BE showed strong antifungal activity against most of the fluconazole-resistant isolates tested. The findings of time-kill curves confirmed the interaction. Yeast cells grown in the presence of BE exhibited a reduced extrusion of Rhodamine 6G, which indicates the inhibition of efflux pumps by BE. This novel synergism of fluconazole and BE that can overcome drug-resistance in yeast may prove useful in combined treatment of fungal infections.

Systemic candidiasis is a rare but life threatening complication in immunosuppressed patients undergoing allogeneic SCT. Combination of new antifungal agents may improve outcome in this patient population. Here, triple anti-mycotic therapy is described in an relapsed ALL patient in urgent need of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. The patient with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia of thymic differentiation achieved remission after treatment according to the German ALL protocol 07/03. Two months after the consolidation therapy relapse occurred requiring high dose chemotherapy with allogeneic stem cell transplantation. One day after start of the conditioning regimen the patient showed skin manifestations typical for septic mycosis and blood cultures became positive for Candida krusei while on fluconazole prophylaxis. Because of the limited sensibility of fluconazole resistant candida species to liposomal amphotericin B and the high mortality rate in patients with systemic candidiasis, voriconazole was added immediately to liposomal amphotericin B. Since fever did not resolve and the conditioning therapy for allogeneic transplantation was not yet completed caspofungin was added. Skin manifestation responded to this triple anti-mycotic combination and peripheral blood stem cells from an unrelated donor were transplanted. With the triple antifungal therapy the patient finally became afebrile, skin manifestations showed complete resolution and blood cultures became negative. Three months after the onset of systemic candidiasis the patient was fully active with no signs Low Cost Evista of fungal infection and in haematological and molecular remission. Mycotic sepsis at the start of myeloablative conditioning therapy in heavily pretreated acute leukemia patients is usually considered as not allowing successful allogeneic transplantation. Thus this case demonstrates, that allogeneic stem cell transplantation is feasible in patients presenting with systemic candidiasis if combined antifungal therapy with liposomal amphotericin B, caspofungin and voriconazole is given.

Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii are the main causative agents of cryptococcosis, a systemic fungal disease that affects internal organs and skin, and which is acquired by inhalation of spores or encapsulated yeasts. It is currently known that the C. neoformans/C. gattii species complex has a worldwide distribution, however, some molecular types seem to prevail in certain regions. Few environmental studies of Cryptococcus have been conducted in the Brazilian Amazon. This is the first ecological study of the pathogenic fungi C. neoformans/C. gattii species complex in the urban area of Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil. A total of 506 samples from pigeon droppings (n = 191), captive bird droppings (n = 60 Sinequan Pill ) and tree hollows (n = 255) were collected from June 2012 to January 2014 at schools and public buildings, squares, pet shops, households, the zoo and the bus station. Samples were plated on niger seed agar (NSA) medium supplemented with chloramphenicol and incubated at 25°C for 5 days. Dark-brown colonies were isolated and tested for thermotolerance at 37°C, cycloheximide resistance and growth on canavanine-glycine-bromothymol blue agar. Molecular typing was done by PCR-RFLP. Susceptibility to the antifungal drugs amphotericin B, fluconazole, itraconazole and ketoconazole was tested using Etest(®) strips. In total, 13 positive samples were obtained: one tree hollow (C. gattiiVGII), nine pigeon droppings (C. neoformansVNI) and three captive bird droppings (C. neoformansVNI). The environmental cryptococcal isolates found in this study were of the same molecular types as those responsible for infections in Manaus.

A panel of infectious disease specialists, clinical microbiologists and hospital epidemiologists of the five Swiss university hospitals reviewed the current literature on the treatment of invasive fungal infections in adults and formulated guidelines for the management of patients in Switzerland. For empirical therapy of Candida bloodstream infection, fluconazole is the drug of choice in non-neutropenic patients with no severe sepsis or septic shock or recent exposure to azoles. Amphotericin B deoxycholate or caspofungin would be the treatment option for patients with previous azole exposure. In neutropenic patients, empirical therapy with amphotericin B deoxycholate is considered first choice. In patients with severe sepsis and septic shock, caspofungin is the drug of first choice. For therapy of microbiologically-documented Candida infection, fluconazole is the drug of choice for infections due to C. albicans, C. tropicalis or C. parapsilosis. When infections are caused by C. glabrata or by C. krusei, caspofungin or amphotericin B deoxycholate are first line therapies. Treatment guidelines for invasive aspergillosis (IA) were stratified into primary therapy, salvage therapy and combination therapy in critically ill patients. Voriconazole is recommended for primary (ie upfront) therapy. Caspofungin, voriconazole (if not used for primary therapy) or liposomal amphotericin B are recommended for salvage therapy for refractory disease. Combination therapy with caspofungin plus voriconazole or liposomal amphotericin B should be considered in critically ill patients. Amphotericin B deoxycholate is recommended as initial therapy for the empirical therapy in patients with neutropenia and persistent fever with close monitoring of adverse events.

Some small molecules, often hits from screening, form aggregates in solution that inhibit many enzymes. In contrast, drugs are thought to act specifically. To investigate this assumption, 50 unrelated drugs were tested for promiscuous inhibition via aggregation. Each drug was tested against three unrelated model enzymes: beta-lactamase, chymotrypsin, and malate dehydrogenase, none of which are considered targets of these drugs. To be judged promiscuous, the drugs had to inhibit all three enzymes, do so in a time-dependent manner, be sensitive to detergent and to enzyme concentration, and form particles detectable by light scattering. Of the 50 drugs tested, 43 were nonpromiscuous by these criteria. Surprisingly, four of the drugs showed promiscuous, aggregation-based inhibition at concentrations below 100 microM: clotrimazole, benzyl benzoate, nicardipine, and delavirdine. Three other drugs also behaved as aggregation-based inhibitors, but only at high concentrations (about 400 microM). To investigate possible structure-activity relationships among promiscuous drugs, five analogues of the antifungal clotrimazole were studied. Three of these, miconazole, econazole, and sulconazole, were promiscuous but the other two, fluconazole and ketoconazole, were not. Using recursive partitioning, these experimental results were used to develop Diamox Drug Interaction a model for predicting aggregate-based promiscuity. This model correctly classified 94% of 111 compounds-47 aggregators and 64 nonaggregators-that have been studied for this effect. To evaluate the model, it was used to predict the behavior of 75 drugs not previously investigated for aggregation. Several preliminary points emerge. Most drugs are not promiscuous, even at high concentrations. Nevertheless, at high enough concentrations (20-400 microM), some drugs can aggregate and act promiscuously, suggesting that aggregation may be common among small molecules at micromolar concentrations, at least in biochemical buffers.

Oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC) and esophageal candidiasis (EPC) are frequent complications in AIDS patients. The use of Fluconazole, an effective and a low toxicity drug, has been associated to the emergency of secondary resistant strains. For this reason, in vitro antifungal susceptibility tests are necessary to predict a therapeutic failure. Etest is an easy to perform alternative test, that has showed a good agreement with the broth microdilution reference method (NCCLS, document M27-A).

A total of 1353 antifungal drug prescriptions were prescribed for 244 patients. More than half of all antifungal drug prescriptions were prescribed by haematology, infectious disease and family medicine departments. The majority of patients to whom these drugs were prescribed were diagnosed to have infectious diseases followed by prophylactic use in leukaemias and immunocompromised conditions. Fluconazole was the most commonly prescribed antifungal drug (n=715, 52.8%) followed by nystatin and voriconazole (n=233; 17.2% and n=152; 11.2%, respectively).

The therapeutic combinations have been increasingly used against fungal resistance. Natural products have been evaluated in combination with pharmaceutical drugs in the search for new components able to work together in order to neutralize the multiple resistance mechanisms found in yeasts from the genus Candida. The aqueous and hydroethanolic extracts from Psidium brownianum Mart ex DC. and Psidium guajava L. species were evaluated for their potential to change the effect of commercial pharmaceutical drugs against Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis strains. The tests were performed according to the broth microdilution method. Plate readings were carried out by spectrophotometry, and the data generated the cell viability curve and IC50 of the extracts against the yeasts. A chemical analysis of all the extracts was performed for detection and characterization of the secondary metabolites. The total phenols were quantified in gallic acid eq/g of extract (GAE/g) and the phenolic composition of the extracts was determined by HPLC. Fluconazole and all extracts presented high Minimum Inhibitories Concentrations (MICs). However, when associated with the extracts at sub-inhibitory concentrations (MIC/16), fluconazole had its effect potentiated. A synergistic effect was observed in the combination of fluconazole with Psidium brownianum extracts against all Candida strains. However, for Psidium guajava extracts the synergistic effect was produced mainly against the Candida albicans LM77 and Candida tropicalis INCQS 400042 strains. The IC50 values of fluconazole ranged from 19.22 to 68.1 μg/mL when it was used alone, but from 2.2 to 45.4 μg/mL in the presence of the extracts. The qualitative chemical characterization demonstrated the presence of phenols, flavonoids and tannins among the secondary metabolites. The concentration of total phenols ranged from 49.25 to 80.77 GAE/g in the P. brownianum extracts and from 68.06 to 82.18 GAE/g in the P. guajava extracts. Our results indicated that both P. brownianum and P. guajava extracts are effective on potentiating the effect of fluconazole, and therefore, these plants have the potential for development of new effective drugs for treating fungal infections.

Survival over a period of 72 h, oxidative stress, neutrophil activity, and lung injury were measured. This study showed a 90% survival in the fluconazole-treated group compared to only 20% survival in untreated rats (P<0.008 log-rank test). The lungs of animals with Fp showed massive pathological changes including intraalveolar oedema, fibrosis, and mixed inflammatory cell infiltrate. These changes were dose-dependently attenuated by fluconazole. Enhanced oxidative stress (P<0.001) and neutrophil activity in the peritoneal fluid and lung (P<0.001) in Fp animals was dose-dependently reduced by fluconazole.

Non-neuromeningeal cryptococcosis forms resulting from disseminated infection are rarely reported in African literature and are non-documented in Malian medical ward. We report two clinical observations. Case 1: a 26-year-old patient, carrying the HIV-1 infection, in which the clinical examination revealed skin lesions simulating molluscum contagiosum and functional impairment of the lower limbs. Radiography of the lumbar spine showed vertebral osteolysis on L4-L5. Cryptococcal research remained negative in the CSF but positive at histological examination of the skin lesions and in pathological products of lumbosacral drainage. The treatment with fluconazole and ARV led to a favorable outcome. Case 2: a 42-year-old patient, admitted for fever cough, known for his non-compliance to ARVs and in which the examination found a syndrome of pleural condensation and a painful swelling of the outer third of the right clavicle (around the acromio-clavicular joint). Paraclinical investigations concluded in osteolysis of the acromial end of the right clavicle and an image of the right lung with abundant effusion. Cryptococcal research was positive in the pleural effusion and in the product of aspiration of acromio-clavicular tumefaction, negative in CSF. It seems important to think of a cryptococcal etiology even in the absence of clinical meningeal signs in front of any cutaneous sign and any fluctuating swelling in HIV+ patient.

Candida glabrata, a yeast with intrinsically low susceptibility to azoles, frequently develops increased azole resistance during prolonged treatment. Transposon mutagenesis revealed that disruption of CgPDR1 resulted in an 8- to 16-fold increase in fluconazole susceptibility of C. glabrata. CgPDR1 is a homolog of Saccharomyces cerevisiae PDR1, which encodes a transcriptional regulator of multidrug transporters. Northern blot analyses indicated that CgPDR1 regulated both constitutive and drug-induced expression of CgCDR1, a multidrug transporter gene. In agreement with the Northern analysis, the Cgpdr1 mutant had increased rhodamine accumulation, in contrast to the decreased accumulation in the CgPDR1-overexpressing strain. Northern analyses also indicated the importance of CgPDR1 in fluconazole resistance arising during therapy. Two clinically resistant isolates had higher expression of CgPDR1 and CgCDR1 compared to their paired susceptible isolates. Integrative transformation of CgPDR1 from the two resistant isolates converted the Cgpdr1 mutant into azole-resistant strains with upregulated CgPDR1 expression. Two different amino acid substitutions, W297S in one isolate and F575L in the other, accounted for the upregulated CgPDR1 expression and the resistance. Finally, CgPDR1 was shown to be required for the azole resistance due to mitochondrial deficiency. Thus, CgPDR1 encodes a transcriptional regulator of a pleiotropic drug resistance network and contributes to the azole resistance of clinical isolates and petite mutants.

Candida glabrata is a major pathogenic yeast in humans that is known to rapidly acquire resistance to triazole and echinocandin antifungal drugs. A mutator genotype (MSH2 polymorphism) inducing a mismatch repair defect has been recently proposed to be responsible for resistance acquisition in C. glabrata clinical isolates. Our objectives were to evaluate the prevalence of antifungal resistance in a large cohort of patients in Saint-Louis hospital, Paris, France, some of whom were pre-exposed to antifungal drugs, as well as to determine whether MSH2 polymorphisms are associated with an increased rate of fluconazole or echinocandin resistance. We collected 268 isolates from 147 patients along with clinical data and previous antifungal exposure. Fluconazole and micafungin minimal inhibition concentrations (MICs) were tested, short tandem repeat genotyping was performed, and the MSH2 gene was sequenced. According to the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility breakpoints, 15.7% of isolates were resistant to fluconazole (MIC > 32 mg/L) and 0.7% were resistant to micafungin (MIC > 0.03 mg/L). A non-synonymous mutation within MSH2 occurred in 44% of the isolates, and 17% were fluconazole resistant. In comparison, fluconazole resistant isolates with no MSH2 mutation represented 15% (P = 0.65). MSH2 polymorphisms were associated with the short tandem repeat genotype. The rate of echinocandin resistance is low and correlates with prior exposure to echinocandin. The mutator genotype was not associated with enrichment in fluconazole resistance but instead corresponded to rare and specific genotypes.

Pulmonary cryptococcosis presenting as an endobronchial tumour-like growth has rarely been described. We report the case of a male patient with normal immune function who presented with a right upper lobe mass lesion. Bronchoscopy revealed a tumour-like growth that completely occluded the anterior segment of the right upper lobe bronchus. Bronchial biopsy and computed tomography-guided lung biopsy revealed Cryptococcus, and culture of lung biopsy specimen grew Cryptococcus neoformans and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The patient responded clinically to amphotericin B, fluconazole and anti-tuberculous therapy. However, chest radiographic response was unremarkable. A presentation of pulmonary cryptococcosis and tuberculosis, along with endobronchial tumour-like growth in the same patient, is unusual and has not been previously described.

A decision-analytic model was developed from a hospital perspective based on the use of posaconazole versus fluconazole or itraconazole prophylaxis in patients with prolonged neutropenia (i.e., longer than 7-10 days). Data reported in a multicenter study, medication-cost information, and reports of costs to treat invasive fungal infections were used to accurately populate the model. Sensitivity analyses enhanced the robustness of the model through variation of all probabilities and costs.

A standardized reference method for dermatophyte in vitro susceptibility testing is lacking. In a previous study, Norris et al. (H. A. Norris, B. E. Elewski, and M. A. Ghannoum, J. Am. Acad. Dermatol. 40(6, part 2):S9-S13) established the optimal medium and other growth variables. However, the earlier study did not address two issues: (i) selection of an optimal medium for conidial formation by dermatophytes and (ii) validation of the method with a large number of dermatophytes. The present study addresses these two points. To select which agar medium best supported conidial growth, representative isolates of dermatophytes were grown on different agars. Preliminary experiments showed that only oatmeal cereal agar supported the production of conidia by Trichophyton rubrum. We tested the abilities of 251 T. rubrum isolates to form conidia using three different cereal agars and potato dextrose agar. Overall, oatmeal cereal and rice agar media were comparable in their abilities to support T. rubrum conidial growth. Next, we used the oatmeal cereal agar for conidial formation along with the optimal conditions for dermatophyte susceptibility testing proposed by Norris et al. and determined the antifungal susceptibilities of 217 dermatophytes to fluconazole, griseofulvin, itraconazole, and terbinafine. Relative to the other agents tested, terbinafine possessed the highest antifungal activity against all of the dermatophytes. The mean +/- standard error of the mean MICs of fluconazole, itraconazole, terbinafine, and griseofulvin were 2.07 +/- 0.29, 0.13 +/- 0.01, 0.002 +/- 0.0003, and 0.71 +/- 0.05 microgram/ml, respectively. This study is the first step in the identification of optimal conditions that could be used for the standardization of the antifungal susceptibility testing method for dermatophytes. Inter- and intralaboratory agreement as well as clinical correlations need to be established.

We investigated the molecular basis of the tolerance of Candida albicans biofilms to antifungals using the miconazole as a model compound, and translated the resulting data to other antifungals. Sessile cells of C. albicans Δefg1, lacking the transcription factor Efg1, showed increased susceptibility to miconazole, amphotericin B and caspofungin, whereas these sessile cells were equally resistant to fluconazole. The increased sensitivity to miconazole was, at least, partly due to an increased accumulation of miconazole in the cells as compared to wild-type or reintegrant Δefg1(EFG1) sessile cells. By using a rat biofilm model, we further confirmed the role of Efg1 in the tolerance of C. albicans biofilms to miconazole when grown in vivo.
