Fungal infections and antifungal prophylaxis in pediatric cardiac extracorporeal life support
We retrospectively reviewed a prospectively maintained database and collected data on all hospital-acquired infections in patients supported for cardiac indications at a tertiary children's hospital from 1989 to 2008. ECMO was deployed 801 times in 767 patients. After exclusion crite...
First evidence of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in China: discovery of chytridiomycosis in introduced American bullfrogs and native amphibi...
Post traumatic fungal keratitis caused by Acremonium recifei.
Tricuspid valve and pacemaker endocarditis due to Pseudallescheria boydii (Scedosporium apiospermum).
We report a case of native valve and pacemaker endocarditis in a 78-year-old male with diabetes mellitus who died after cardiac surgery. At autopsy, tricuspid valve vegetations and lung abscesses containing thick, hyaline, septate, and branching hyphae were present. The culture identified Scedospori...
Compassionate use study of caspofungin in children with proven or suspected invasive mycosis or persistent febrile neutropenia.
NHSN annual update: antimicrobial-resistant pathogens associated with healthcare-associated infections: annual summary of data reported to t...
Overall, 463 hospitals reported 1 or more HAIs: 412 (89%) were general acute care hospitals, and 309 (67%) had 200-1,000 beds. There were 28,502 HAIs reported among 25,384 patients. The 10 most common pathogens (accounting for 84% of any HAIs) were coagulase-negative staphylococci (15%), Staphylococ...
Current epidemiology of intracranial abscesses: a prospective 5 year study.
We undertook a comprehensive study to determine the demographics and bacteriological spectrum of brain abscesses in our hospital. Bacteriological profiles and antibiograms were studied by conventional microbiological methods. Seventy-five patients were admitted with brain abscesses over a 5 year per...
Recommendations for the treatment of established fungal infections.
Evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of established fungal infections in the adult haematology/oncology setting were developed by a national consensus working group representing clinicians, pharmacists and microbiologists. These updated guidelines replace the previous guidelines published in...
Beta-glucan activates microglia without inducing cytokine production in Dectin-1-dependent manner.
We sought to determine whether Dectin-1, a major beta-glucan receptor recently identified in leukocytes, plays a similar role in beta-glucan-induced activation in microglia. In this study, we report that Dectin-1 is indeed expressed on the surface of murine primary microglia, and engagement of the r...
Comparison of disk diffusion test and Etest for voriconazole and fluconazole susceptibility testing.
The distribution for voriconazole and fluconazole susceptibility was determined by Etest and disk diffusion test in 143 clinical isolates. The majority of the strains of Aspergillus spp., Candida krusei, C. inconspicua, C norvegensis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae displayed resistance or decreased sus...
