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...
Universal antifungal therapy is not needed in persistent febrile neutropenia: a tailored diagnostic and therapeutic approach.
Giving antifungal therapy exclusively to selected patients with persistent febrile neutropenia may avoid over-treatment without increasing mortality. The aim of this study was to validate an innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approach based on assessing patients' risk profile and...
Serum procalcitonin levels in patients with myeloperoxidase-antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies-associated glomerulonephritis.
High serum procalcitonin (PCT) levels (≥0.5 ng/mL) commonly occur with systemic bacterial and fungal infections. Although several studies suggested that measuring serum PCT levels may serve as a useful marker to distinguish between active antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA...
New developments in invasive fungal disease.
Invasive fungal infections continue to be a major cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised or severely ill patients. This report highlights new research data presented at the 51st Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy on invasive fungal disease...
A multicenter, open-label study of posaconazole oral suspension in the treatment of invasive fungal infections in patients refractory to or ...
We performed a multicenter, open-label clinical trial of posaconazole oral suspension in the treatment of 63 patients with invasive fungal infections who were refractory to or intolerant of first-line therapy. Our result showed that 64.4% of patients had a clinical response after pos...
[Triple fungal infection in a patient with liver cirrhosis].
We report a case of triple fungal infection including an invasive pulmonary aspergillosis by Aspergillus fumigatus, a candidemia by Candida albicans and a Pneumocystis pneumonia. The overall clinical picture of this patient was liver cirrhosis with medical history of immunosuppressive treatment for...
Reptiles as potential vectors and hosts of the amphibian pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in Panama.
We surveyed for the presence of B. dendrobatidis DNA among 211 lizards and 8 snakes at 8 sites at varying elevations in Panama where the syntopic amphibians were at pre-epizootic, epizootic or post-epizootic stages of chytridiomycosis. Detection of B. dendrobatidis DNA was done using qPCR analysis....
Evaluation of wound healing and antimicrobial potentials of Ixora coccinea root extract
To evaluate the wound healing and antimicrobial activity of root extracts of Ixora coccinea (I. coccinea). To investigate the wound healing efficacy of root extract of I. coccinea Linn, five groups of animals were divided each containing six animals. Two wound models...
State of the art: what we know about infectious agents and myositis.
Increasing evidence suggests that the idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs) result from certain environmental exposures in genetically susceptible individuals. Investigations have demonstrated that a variety of infections not only cause infectious myopathies but also could be pos...
