diflucan 150 mg

Infections due to Candida spp. are frequent, particularly in immunocompromised and intensive care unit patients. Antifungal susceptibility tests are now required to optimize antifungal treatment given the emergence of acquired antifungal resistance in some Candida species. An antifungal susceptibility automated method, the Vitek 2 system (VK2), was evaluated. VK2 was compared to the CLSI broth microdilution reference method and the Etest procedure. For this purpose, 205 clinical isolates of Candida spp., including 11 different species, were tested for fluconazole, voriconazole, and amphotericin B susceptibility. For azoles, essential agreement ranged from 25% to 100%, depending on the method used and the Candida species tested. Categorical agreements for all of the species averaged 92.2% and ranged from 14.3 to 100%, depending on the 24-h or 48-h MIC reading by the Etest and CLSI methods and on the Candida species. Results obtained for Candida albicans showed excellent categorical and essential agreements with the two comparative methods. For Candida glabrata, the essential agreement was high with the CLSI method but low with the Etest method, and several very major errors in interpretation were observed between VK2 and the Etest method for both azoles. Low MICs of fluconazole were obtained for all of the Candida krusei isolates, but the VK2 expert software corrected all of the results obtained to resistant. Amphotericin B results showed MICs of < or = 1 mg/liter for 201 (VK2), 190 (CLSI), and 202 (Etest) isolates. The AST-YS01 Vitek 2 card system (bioMérieux) is a reliable and practical standardized automated antifungal susceptibility test. Nevertheless, more assays are needed to better evaluate C. glabrata fluconazole sensitivity.

The biosynthesis of melanin has been linked with virulence in diverse pathogenic fungi. Penicillium marneffei, a dimorphic fungus, is capable of melanization in both mycelial and yeast phases, and the pigment may be produced during infection to protect the fungus from the host immune system. To investigate the impact of yeast morphological transformation on antifungal susceptibility, P. marneffei was cultured on various media including minimal medium, 1 % tryptone, brain heart infusion broth, and malt extract broth by using the standardized susceptibility protocol (the M27-A protocol, RPMI medium) for yeasts. We also investigated whether P. marneffei melanization affected its susceptibility to antifungal drugs by adding L-DOPA into culture broths. There were no differences in the minimum inhibitory concentrations of P. marneffei yeast cells previously grown in various culture broths with or without L-DOPA using the M27A protocol (into which no melanin substrate can be added due to a rapid colour change of the RPMI medium to black) for testing amphotericin B, clotrimazole, fluconazole, itraconazole and ketoconazole. However, both melanized and non-melanized P. marneffei displayed increased resistance to antifungal drugs when L-DOPA was added into a selected assay medium, 0.17 % yeast nitrogen base, 2 % glucose, and 1.5 % agar. Hence, active melanin formation appears to protect P. marneffei by enhancing its resistance to antifungal drugs.

A multicenter study was performed between April and September 1998 with the participation of 12 medical centers located in 8 different provinces and in the capital city of Argentina. The aim of this study was to determine the species distribution and the antifungal susceptibility profile of isolates causing nosocomial fungal infections. All the fungal isolates obtained were sent to the Mycology Department for reference identification and antifungal susceptibility testing. Eighty-nine isolates were received from different clinical specimens. The distribution of species obtained was C. albicans (50.6%), C. tropicalis (22.5%), C. parapsilosis (20.2%), C. krusei (3.4%), C. glabrata (2.2%) and Debaryomyces hansenii (1.1%). Most of the isolates (85/88) had MICs for amphotericin B < or = 1 microgram/ml, C. krusei showed resistance to fluconazole but was dose dependent susceptible to itraconazole, C. glabrata (2/2) were resistant against both drugs, most of the isolates of C. albicans, C. tropicalis and C. parapsilosis were susceptible to these triazole drugs. These data showed a different distribution of Candida species compared with results obtained in other countries. The low frequency of appearance of C. krusei and C. glabrata in our country suggests a reduced selective pressure by triazoles.

The performance of Etest in fluconazole and voriconazole testing of 279 isolates of uncommon Candida spp. was assessed in comparison with the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS)-approved standard broth microdilution (BMD) method. The NCCLS method employed RPMI 1640 broth medium, and MICs were read after incubation for 48 h at 35 degrees C. Etest MICs were determined with RPMI agar containing 2% glucose and were read after incubation for 48 h at 35 degrees C. The isolates include Candida krusei, C. lusitaniae, C. guilliermondii, C. kefyr, C. rugosa, C. lipolytica, C. pelliculosa, C. dubliniensis, C. famata, C. zeylanoides, C. inconspicua, and C. norvegensis. Overall agreement between Etest and BMD MICs was 96% for fluconazole and 95% for voriconazole. Where a discrepancy was observed between Etest and the reference method, the Etest tended to give lower values with both fluconazole and voriconazole. The Etest method using RPMI agar appears to be a useful method for determining fluconazole and voriconazole susceptibilities of uncommon species of Candida.

The top three commonest fungus of Beijing Tong Ren hospital successively are Fusarium sp., Aspergrium sp. and Alternaria sp. Natamycin should be the first choice for fusarium infection and pathogen-unknown infection. All species with the exception of Fusarium sp. are sensitive to natamycin, terbinafine and amphotericin B but not itraconazole. Almost all fungal strains are resistant to fluconazole.

We investigated the effects of lactoferrin (Lf)-related compounds on growth inhibition of Candida albicans by neutrophils or antifungal agents in vitro. Human neutrophils partially inhibited the growth of C.albicans. The growth inhibition caused by human neutrophils was augmented by the addition of human Lf at concentrations which did not show any inhibitory effect in the absence of neutrophils. Similar observations were obtained also with the following combinations: human neutrophils + bovine Lf, murine neutrophils + bovine Lf, and murine neutrophils + iron saturated bovine Lf, but not in the case of murine neutrophils + human transferrin. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of azole antifungal agents, clotrimazole, ketoconazole, fluconazole, and itraconazole was reduced by 1/4 to 1/16 in the presence of a sub-MIC level of each of bovine Lf, bovine Lf pepsin hydrolysate, and the antimicrobial peptide "lactoferricin B" (Lfcin B). Other types of antifungal agents, amphotericin B, nystatin, and flucytosine did not show such combined effects with these Lf-related compounds. The anti-Candida activity of bovine Lf or Lfcin B in combination with clotrimazole was shown to be synergistic by checkerboard analysis. Clinically isolated azole-resistant C. albicans strains were more susceptible to bovine Lf or Lfcin B than azole-susceptible strains. Trailing growth of an azole-resistant strain in the presence of fluconazole was reduced by the addition of sub-MIC levels of bovine Lf or Lfcin B. These results suggest that Lf-related compounds even at relatively low concentrations may function as an antifungal effector in combination with neutrophils thereby modulating azole antifungal efficacies in vivo.

Exposure of C. albicans to subinhibitory concentrations of fluconazole in RPMI 1640 in the absence of serum led to up-regulation of the virulence-associated genes SAP4, SAP5 and SAP6 in hyphae and long pseudohyphae. Measurements with green fluorescent protein (GFP)-tagged promoters showed that the fluorescence of SAP4 and SAP6 under these conditions was strongest in the apical tip compartments of these filamentous cells and declined in compartments more proximal to the parent yeast cell. By contrast, SAP5-GFP fluorescence was expressed at similar levels in all cell compartments. Exposure to fluconazole led to significant increases in GFP-SAP4 and -SAP6 fluorescence in the filaments; itraconazole exposure also significantly increased GFP-SAP4 fluorescence, whereas flucytosine had no effect on any of the constructs. In experimentally infected animals, fluorescence of the GFP-SAP promoter fungal cells in kidney tissues was greater than that was seen in vitro for all four SAP constructs: treatment of animals with fluconazole did not significantly increase SAP promoter expression as measured by GFP fluorescence.

Cytostatic chemotherapy of hematological malignancies is often complicated by neutropenia, which increases the risk of infections, especially if the neutrophil count is below 500/microl. Frequently, fever is the first, and in most patients the only, sign of an infection. Unexplained fever is defined as follows: temperature of >/=38.3 degrees C or >/=38.0 degrees C for at least 1 h, or measured twice within 12 h, if the neutrophil count is <500/microl or <1000/microl with predicted decline to 500/microl. Different risk categories can be identified according to the duration of neutropenia: low risk /=10 days. An empirical mono- or duotherapy with antipseudomonal and antistreptococcal agents should be initiated immediately. In the low risk patient group, oral therapy with cipro-, levo-, or ofloxacin combined with amoxicillin/clavulanic acid is permissible. For standard and high risk patients, monotherapy can be carried out with either ceftazidime, cefepime, piperacillin with tazobactam or a carbapenem. In duotherapy, a single dose of an aminoglycoside is combined with acylaminopenicillin or a cephalosporin of the third or fourth generation. The addition of glycopeptides in empirical therapy should only be considered in the presence of severe mucositis, or if a catheter-associated infection is suspected. If fever persists after 72-96 h of first-line therapy with antibiotics, the regimen should be modified (with the exception of e.g. coagulase-negative staphylococci infections, because these infections take longer to respond). Intermediate risk patients should additionally receive an aminoglycoside after monotherapy (penicillin or a cephalosporin). If a carbapenem was administered for monotherapy, this can be followed by a quinolone and/or a glycopeptide. In the high risk group, the same modifications should be made as in the intermediate risk group but with additional systemic antifungal treatment. In the presence of unexplained fever, fluconazole can be administered at first, but if this fails, amphotericin B (conventional or liposomal), itraconazole, voriconazole or caspofungin should be started. After defervescence to <38 degrees C, treatment should be continued for 7 days if the neutrophil count is <1000/microl, and for 2 days if the neutrophil count is >1000/microl.

Mice treated orally with voriconazole at >or=10 mg/kg and fluconazole at >or=20 mg/kg showed significantly reduced fungal counts over controls (P = 0.0002-0.007). Significant differences were found between the groups that received voriconazole at 20 mg/kg once or twice daily and those that received fluconazole at 20 mg/kg once or twice daily, orally (P = 0.010 and 0.001, respectively). Mice treated with voriconazole or fluconazole administered intravaginally at >or=0.5 mg/kg exhibited a reduced fungal burden when compared with the control group (P = 0.0002-0.007). There was no statistically significant difference in fungal burden between topical treatment with doses of 0.5, 1 and 5 mg/kg once daily of voriconazole or fluconazole. Sterilization of vaginas was not observed with voriconazole and fluconazole without taking into consideration the therapeutic modality.

This is the case of a 66 year old male who underwent surgery due to peritonitis secondary to intestinal suture dehiscence. The patient was admitted to ICU with septic shock symptoms and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS), and CRRT was started. Anidulafungin was prescribed at the usual dosage due to the IC risk factors present, and the observation of yeasts in the peritoneal fluid. Anidulafungin was selected due to the hepatic failure suffered by the patient. An isolate of Candida albicans susceptible to fluconazole was cultured from peritoneal fluid and rectal exudates. However, anidulafungin was maintained due to the MODS and observing the clearance of fluconazole during CRRT. The patient's condition improved favourably, being moved to the surgical ward 20 days after the surgery.

To compare the therapeutic effects of three different anti-fungal drugs (i.e., terbinafine, fluconazole and intraconazole) in the treatment of experimental vaginitis caused by Candida albicans (C. albicans) in mice, the fungal vaginitis model was established in female ICR mice by intravaginal inoculation of suspension of C. albicans after the animal had been pretreated with estradiol. Mice were divided at random into different groups and then respectively treated with terbinafine, fluconazole and intraconazole given by gastrogavage. The burden of the fungus in the vaginal lavage fluids in the mice of the different groups was measured dynamically at different time points after the beginning of the drug treatment. The fungal burdens in the vaginal lavage fluids taken at different time points from the mice treated with terbinafine were significantly higher than those taken at corresponding time points from mice treated with fluconazole or itraconazole (P<0.01). The fungal burdens in the vaginal lavage fluids taken from mice 1 week after the beginning of the treatment with terbinafine remained at a relatively high level. A dramatic drop in the fungal burden was noted in the vaginal lavage fluids taken on the 2nd day of the treatment from mice treated with itraconazole or fluconazole group and the fungal burden on the 3rd day of the treatment in these mice were at a very low level, suggesting that fluconazole or itraconazole were highly effective for the treatment. However, the difference in the therapeutic effect between the two drugs was not significant (P>0.05). Itraconazole or fluconazole, but not terbinafine, is very effective for the treatment of fungal vaginitis caused by C. albicans in mice.

Combinations of flucytosine with conventional and new antifungals were evaluated in vitro against 30 clinical isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans. Synergy determined by checkerboard analysis was observed with combinations of fluconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole, amphotericin B, and caspofungin with flucytosine against 77, 60, 80, 77, and 67% of the isolates, respectively. Antagonism was never observed. Killing curves showed indifferent interactions between triazoles and flucytosine and synergy between amphotericin B and flucytosine.

Compared with control groups, there was reduced vasodilation with bradykinin (P = .005), a blunted effect of fluconazole on bradykinin-induced vasodilation (P = .03), and a trend toward reduced basal EET/dihydroxyepoxyeicosatrienoic acid ratio in patients with COPD (P = .08). A similar pattern was observed in overweight smokers. In vitro, 10 μM GSK2256294 increased 11,12-EET-mediated vasodilation compared with vehicle (90% ± 4.2% vs 72.6% ± 6.2% maximal dilatation) and shifted the bradykinin half-maximal effective concentration (EC50) (-8.33 ± 0.172 logM vs -8.10 ± 0.118 logM; P = .001 for EC50). In vivo, 18 mg GSK2256294 improved the maximum bradykinin response from 338% ± 46% before a dose to 566% ± 110% after a single dose (P = .02) and buy diflucan online to 503% ± 123% after a chronic dose (P = .003).

Antifungal peptides have gained interest as therapeutic agents in recent years because of increased multidrug resistance against present antifungal drugs. This study designed, synthesized and characterized antifungal activity of a small peptide analogue, DS6. This peptide was designed using the template from the N-terminal part of the antifungal protein, Aspergillus giganteous. DS6 inhibited Candida tropicalis (ATCC 13803), as well as its clinical isolates. DS6 was found to be a fungicidal, killing the fungus very rapidly. DS6 is also non-toxic to human cells. Synergistic interactions of DS6 with amphotericin B and fluconazole were also evident. DS6 is membrane lytic and exhibits buy diflucan online antibiofilm activity against C. tropicalis. In conclusion, DS6 may have utility as an alternative antifungal therapy for C. tropicalis. Copyright © 2017 European Peptide Society and John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

An 8-person subcommittee of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Mycoses Study Group evaluated available data on the treatment of cryptococcal disease. Opinion regarding optimal treatment was based on personal experience and information in the literature. The relative strength of each recommendation was graded according to the type and degree of evidence available to support the recommendation, in keeping with previously published guidelines by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). The panel conferred in person (on 2 occasions), by conference call, and through written reviews of each draft of the manuscript. The choice of treatment for disease caused by Cryptococcus neoformans depends on both the anatomic sites of involvement and the host's immune status. For immunocompetent hosts with isolated pulmonary disease, careful observation may be warranted; in the case of symptomatic infection, indicated treatment is fluconazole, 200-400 mg/day for 36 months. For those individuals with non-CNS-isolated cryptococcemia, a positive serum cryptococcal antigen titer >1:8, or urinary tract or cutaneous disease, recommended treatment is oral azole therapy (fluconazole) for 36 months. In each case, careful assessment of the CNS is required to rule out occult meningitis. For those individuals who are unable to tolerate fluconazole, itraconazole (200-400 mg/day for 6-12 months) is an acceptable alternative. For patients with more severe disease, treatment with amphotericin B (0.5-1 mg/kg/d) may be necessary for 6-10 weeks. For otherwise healthy hosts with CNS disease, standard therapy consists of amphotericin B, 0.7-1 mg/kg/d, plus flucytosine, 100 mg/kg/d, for 6-10 weeks. An alternative to this regimen is amphotericin B (0.7-1 mg/kg/d) plus 5-flucytosine (100 mg/kg/d) for 2 weeks, followed by fluconazole (400 mg/day) for a minimum of 10 weeks. Fluconazole "consolidation" therapy may be continued for as along as 6-12 months, depending on the clinical status of the patient. HIV-negative, immunocompromised hosts should be treated in the buy diflucan online same fashion as those with CNS disease, regardless of the site of involvement. Cryptococcal disease that develops in patients with HIV infection always warrants therapy. For those patients with HIV who present with isolated pulmonary or urinary tract disease, fluconazole at 200-400 mg/d is indicated. Although the ultimate impact from highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is currently unclear, it is recommended that all HIV-infected individuals continue maintenance therapy for life. Among those individuals who are unable to tolerate fluconazole, itraconazole (200-400 mg/d) is an acceptable alternative. For patients with more severe disease, a combination of fluconazole (400 mg/d) plus flucytosine (100-150 mg/d) may be used for 10 weeks, followed by fluconazole maintenance therapy. Among patients with HIV infection and cryptococcal meningitis, induction therapy with amphotericin B (0.7-1 mg/kg/d) plus flucytosine (100 mg/kg/d for 2 weeks) followed by fluconazole (400 mg/d) for a minimum of 10 weeks is the treatment of choice. After 10 weeks of therapy, the fluconazole dosage may be reduced to 200 mg/d, depending on the patient's clinical status. Fluconazole should be continued for life. An alternative regimen for AIDS-associated cryptococcal meningitis is amphotericin B (0.7-1 mg/kg/d) plus 5-flucytosine (100 mg/kg/d) for 6-10 weeks, followed by fluconazole maintenance therapy. Induction therapy beginning with an azole alone is generally discouraged. Lipid formulations of amphotericin B can be substituted for amphotericin B for patients whose renal function is impaired. Fluconazole (400-800 mg/d) plus flucytosine (100-150 mg/kg/d) for 6 weeks is an alternative to the use of amphotericin B, although toxicity with this regimen is high. In all cases of cryptococcal meningitis, careful attention to the management of intracranial pressure is imperative to assure optimal c

End points of this study were the frequency of proven candidiasis, especially SICU-acquired candidiasis. During the retrospective period, 32 patients of 455 (7%) presented with proven candidiasis: 22 (4.8%) were imported and 10 (2.2%) were SICU-acquired cases. During the prospective period, 96 patients with corrected colonization index > or =0.4 of 478 received preemptive antifungal treatment and only 18 cases (3.8%) of proven candidiasis were diagnosed; all were imported infections. Candida infections occurred more frequently in the control cohort (7% vs. 3.8%; p = .03). Incidence of SICU-acquired proven candidiasis significantly decreased from 2.2% to 0% (p < .001, Fisher test). Incidence of proven imported candidiasis remained buy diflucan online unchanged (4.8% vs. 3.8%; p = .42). No emergence of azole-resistant Candida species (especially Candida glabrata, Candida krusei) was noted during the prospective period.

To examine how azole inhibitors interact with the heme active site of the cytochrome P450 enzymes, we have performed a series of density functional theory studies on azole binding. These are the first density functional studies on azole interactions with a heme center and give fundamental insight into how azoles inhibit the catalytic function of P450 enzymes. Since azoles come in many varieties, we tested three typical azole motifs representing a broad range of azole and azole-type inhibitors: methylimidazolate, methyltriazolate, and pyridine. These structural motifs represent typical azoles, such as econazole, fluconazole, and metyrapone. The calculations show that azole binding is a stepwise mechanism whereby first the water molecule from the resting state of P450 is released from the sixth binding site of the heme to create a pentacoordinated active site followed by coordination of the azole nitrogen to the heme iron. This process leads to the breaking of a hydrogen bond between the resting state water molecule and the approaching inhibitor molecule. Although, formally, the water molecule is released in the first step of the reaction mechanism and a pentacoordinated heme is created, this does not lead to an observed spin state crossing. Thus, we show that release of a water molecule from the resting state of P450 enzymes to create a pentacoordinated heme will lead to a doublet to quartet spin state crossing at an Fe-OH(2) distance of approximately 3.0 A, while the azole substitution process takes place at shorter distances. Azoles bind heme with significantly stronger binding energies than a water molecule, so that these inhibitors block the catalytic cycle of the enzyme and prevent oxygen binding and the catalysis of substrate oxidation. Perturbations within the active site (e.g., a polarized environment) have little effect on the relative energies of azole binding. Studies with an extra hydrogen-bonded ethanol molecule in the model, mimicking buy diflucan online the active site of the CYP121 P450, show that the resting state and azole binding structures are close in energy, which may lead to chemical equilibrium between the two structures, as indeed observed with recent protein structural studies that have demonstrated two distinct azole binding mechanisms to P450 heme.

In bacteriology, the Etest has a broad field of application in bacteriology and is recently available for the antimycotics fluconazole and itraconazole. By means of the presence of gradient concentrations of the active substance on the carrier material, it is possible to obtain reproducible MICs of the antimycotic substances. The results of susceptibility testing of 326 clinical yeast isolates with the Etest were compared to those MICs obtained by microdilution and agar dilution. A 100% concordance of the MIC markers (mode-, MIC50- and MIC90-value, standard deviation of the mean log2-MIC-dilution steps) was given when compared by a +/- 1 MIC-dilution step range with microdilution and by +/- 2 MIC-dilution steps with agar dilution; species dependent all strains were within 2 x standard deviation of the individual MIC-mean of the species. By comparison of the individual MIC-values maximum differences of +/- 6 MIC-dilution steps were obtained, where 70% of all results were within +/- 2 MIC-dilution steps, and more than 92% of all strains were within +/- 3 MIC-dilution steps. The Pearson's correlation coefficients show a good agreement of the Etest with microdilution (r = 0.92) resp., agar dilution (r = 0.88) demonstrate, however, clearly insufficient correlations (r < 0.65) to the reference methods, for species with difficult to read Etest inhibition zones (e.g., Candida glabrata, Candida krusei, Candida parapsilosis). The differences between the proposed test methods recommended by the NCCLS and the working group "Clinical Mycology" of buy diflucan online the German Speaking Mycological Society (AG-KMYK) are tabled.

The efficiency of UV irradiation for the removal of the antimycotic drugs fluconazole (FCZ) and climbazole (CBZ) from water samples is evaluated. Degradation experiments, at laboratory scale, were carried out with spiked aliquots of ultrapure water solutions and treated wastewater samples using low-pressure mercury lamps emitting at 254 nm. Time course of precursor pollutants and identification of arising transformation products (TPs) was performed by injection of different reaction time aliquots in a liquid chromatography quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (LC-QTOF-MS) system. Chemical structures of identified TPs were proposed from their full-product ion spectra, acquired using different collision energies. During UV irradiation experiments, the half-lives (t1/2) of FCZ and CBZ were similar in ultrapure water solutions and wastewater samples; however, the first species was more recalcitrant than the second one. Four TPs were identified in case of FCZ resulting from substitution of fluorine atoms by hydroxyl moieties and intramolecular cyclization with fluorine removal. CBZ interacted with UV radiation through reductive dechlorination, hydroxylation and cleavage of the ether bond; moreover, five additional primary TPs, with the same empirical formula as CBZ, were also noticed. Given the relatively long t1/2 of FCZ under direct photolysis (ca. 42 min), UV irradiation was combined with H2O2 addition to promote formation of reactive Valtrex Zoster Dose hydroxyl radicals. Under such conditions, the degradation rate of FCZ was enhanced significantly and no TPs were detected. These latter conditions allowed also the effective removal of CBZ TPs.

We retrospectively reviewed 9 consecutive cases of primary pulmonary cryptococcosis having no comorbidity. At diagnosis, seven had no subjective Zofran Otc Dose symptoms and two had subtle symptom. Chest CT scan showed nodular shadows in 8, while 3 cases had infiltrative shadows. Eight of the nine were diagnosed with histopathology obtained by transbronchial lung biopsy or CT-guided needle aspiration biopsy. We also assessed PHA and Con A lymphocyte stimulation tests to measure cellular immune function in 6, four of whom showed decreased reaction of lymphocytes. We successfully treated seven of the nine with fluconazole alone and used fluconazole as a maintenance regimen in two. No relapse or treatment failure was seen after completion of antifungal treatment. Six cases were seropositive for serum cryptococcus antigen titer at diagnosis and only one showed seroconversion. We concluded that the duration of therapy for primary pulmonary cryptococcosis should not be necessarily determined by serum cryptococcus antigen seroconversion.

The alkylating agent cyclophosphamide (CP) is a prodrug requiring cytochrome P-450-mediated bioactivation to Zyrtec D Medication form the active 4-hydroxycyclophosphamide (4OHCP). Modifications in the rate of CP bioactivation may have implications for the effectiveness of CP therapy, especially in high-dose regimens. In this study, agents frequently co-administered with CP in high-dose chemotherapy regimens were tested for their possible inhibition of the bioactivation of CP in human liver microsomes. The Km and Vmax values for the conversion of CP to 4OHCP were 93 microM and 4.3 nmol/h.mg, respectively. No inhibition was observed for aciclovir, carboplatin, ciprofloxacine, granisetron, mesna, metoclopramide, ranitidine, roxitromycin and temazepam. Inhibition was observed for amphotericin B, dexamethasone, fluconazole, itraconazole, lorazepam, ondansetron and thiotepa, with IC50 values of 50, >100, >50, 5, 15, >100 and 1.25 microM, respectively. For all but thiotepa, these IC50 values were higher than the therapeutic drug levels and thus considered of no clinical relevance. We conclude that of the tested co-medicated agents, only thiotepa inhibited metabolism of CP to 4OHCP at clinically relevant concentrations, and may thereby influence therapeutic and toxic responses of CP therapy.

Overexpression of the CaCDR1-encoded multidrug efflux pump protein CaCdr1p (Candida drug resistance protein 1), belonging to the ATP binding cassette (ABC) superfamily of transporters, is one of the most prominent contributors of multidrug resistance (MDR) in Candida albicans. Thus, blocking or modulating the function of the drug efflux pumps represents an attractive approach in combating MDR. In the present study, we provide first evidence that the quorum-sensing molecule farnesol (FAR) is a specific modulator of efflux mediated by ABC multidrug transporters, such as CaCdr1p and CaCdr2p of C. albicans and ScPdr5p of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Interestingly, FAR did not modulate the efflux mediated by the multidrug extrusion pump protein CaMdr1p, belonging to the major facilitator superfamily (MFS). Kinetic data revealed that FAR competitively inhibited rhodamine 6G efflux in CaCdr1p-overexpressing cells, with a simultaneous increase in an apparent K(m) without affecting the V(max) values and the ATPase activity. We also observed that when used in combination, FAR at a nontoxic concentration synergized with the drugs at their respective nonlethal concentrations, as was evident from their <0.5 fractional inhibitory concentration index (FICI) values and from the drop of 14- to 64-fold in the MIC(80) values in the wild-type strain and in azole-resistant clinical isolates of C. albicans. Our biochemical experiments revealed that the synergistic interaction of FAR with the drugs led to reactive oxygen species accumulation, which triggered early apoptosis, and that both could be partly reversed by the addition of an antioxidant. Collectively, FAR modulates drug extrusion mediated exclusively by ABC proteins and is synergistic to fluconazole (FLC), ketoconazole (KTC), miconazole (MCZ), and amphotericin (AMB).

Cushing's syndrome is a complex endocrine condition with potential serious complications if untreated or inadequately treated. Transsphenoidal surgery with resection of a pituitary adenoma is successful in 75 - 80% of patients, but approximately 20 - 25% show persistence of Cushing's, and a similar proportion may experience recurrence within 2 - 4 years post-op. When surgery fails, medical treatment can temporarily suppress excessive cortisol production and ameliorate its clinical manifestations while more definitive therapy becomes effective. We describe pharmacological approaches to the treatment of Cushing's syndrome. Drugs used to suppress cortisol secretion are mostly inhibitors of steroidogenesis. Ketoconazole, fluconazole aminoglutethimide, metyrapone, mitotane and etomidate are in that category. Ketoconazole is in current use while other drugs, although mostly available in the past, continue to have a potential role either alone or in combination. Drugs that suppress adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secretion are less popular as standard treatment and include cyproheptadine, valproic acid, cabergoline, somatostatin analogs, PPAR-gamma agonists, vasopressin antagonists. Some of these drugs have been tested in limited clinical trials but there is potential therapeutic benefit in analogs with better specificity for the class of receptors present in ACTH-secreting tumors. A third category of drugs is glucocorticoid receptor antagonists. Mifepristone is currently being tested in clinical trials in patients with persistent or recurrent Cushing's disease and in patients with metastatic adrenal cortical carcinoma or ectopic ACTH syndrome not amenable to surgery. We also review replacement therapy after surgery and non-specific drugs to treat complications in patients with severe hypercortisol. The review provides a complete survey of the drugs used in the medical treatment of Cushing's, and new advances in the development of pituitary-active drugs as well as receptor blockers of glucocorticoid action. It also provides avenues for exploration of new drugs active on somatostatin, dopamine and vasopressin receptors. There are effective pharmacological agents capable of chronically reversing biochemical and clinical manifestations of hypercortisolemia in Cushing's syndrome but new drugs are needed with action at the pituitary level.

Based on statistics, the Prout-Tompkins model provided the best fit for the transformation. The activation energy (E(a)) value derived from the rate constants of the Prout-Tompkins model was 329 kJ/mol. Model-independent analysis was also applied to the experimental results. The average values calculated using both methods were not significantly different. Factors affecting kinetics of transformation such as mechanical factors, relative humidity, and the effect of seeding were also studied. Mechanical factors, which included trituration and compression, proved to enhance transformation rate significantly. Relative humidity proved to transform both polymorphs to monohydrate form. The presence of seed crystals of polymorph I was proved not to affect the transformation process of polymorph II to polymorph I. Effect of solvent of crystallization (dichloromethane) was studied. A significant change of the rate of transformation was proved in the presence of solvent vapors, and a change on the mechanism was proposed.

This review focuses on free-living amoebae, widely distributed in soil and water, causing opportunistic and non-opportunistic infections in humans: Acanthamoeba spp., Balamuthia mandrillaris, Naegleria fowleri, and Sappinia diploidea. Diseases include primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (N. fowleri), granulomatous amoebic encephalitis, cutaneous and nasopharyngeal infections (Acanthamoeba spp., Balamuthia mandrillaris, S. diploidea), and amoebic keratitis (Acanthamoeba spp). Acanthamoeba, Balamuthia, and Naegleria have been repeatedly isolated; S. diploidea has been reported only once, from a brain infection. Antimicrobial therapy for these infections is generally empirical and patient recovery often problematic. N. fowleri is highly sensitive to the antifungal agent amphotericin B, but delay in diagnosis and the fulminant nature of the disease result in few survivors. Encephalitis and other infections caused by Acanthamoeba and Balamuthia have been treated, more or less successfully, with antimicrobial combinations including sterol-targeting azoles (clotrimazole, miconazole, ketoconazole, fluconazole, itraconazole), pentamidine isethionate, 5-fluorocytosine, and sulfadiazine. The use of drug combinations addresses resistance patterns that may exist or develop during treatment, ensuring that at least one of the drugs may be effective against the amoebae. Favorable drug interactions (additive or synergistic) are another potential benefit. In vitro drug testing of clinical isolates points up strain and species differences in sensitivity, so that no single drug can be assumed effective against all amoebae. Another complication is risk of activation of dormant cysts that form in situ in Acanthamoeba and Balamuthia infections, and which can lead to patient relapse following apparently effective treatment. This is particularly true in Acanthamoeba keratitis, a non-opportunistic infection of the cornea, which responds well to treatment with chlorhexidine gluconate and polyhexamethylene biguanide, in combination with propamidine isothionate (Brolene), hexamidine (Désomodine), or neomycin. Acanthamoeba spp. may also be carriers of endosymbiotic bacteria (Legionella and Legionella-like pathogens) and have been implicated in outbreaks of pneumonias in debilitated hosts. As with other infectious diseases, recovery is dependent not only on antimicrobial therapy, but also on patient's immune status, infective dose and virulence of the ameba strain, and on how early the disease is diagnosed and drug therapy initiated.
