Cidara Rallies On Development Deal For Lead Antifungal
Release date- 13082019 - Pulmocide Ltd, which is developing first-in-class inhaled anti-infectives for targeted treatment of life-threatening lung infections, is pleased to announce that in vitro data published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy highlight the potential of its novel antifungal
candidate PC945 in the treatment of Candida auris.
HSA said that the cream contained ciprofloxacin (an antibiotic) and terbinafine (an antifungal
resistance cases in pityriasis versicolor are increasing due to many factors from host, drug, and the yeast itself.7-9 Moreover, the research about antifungal
susceptibility is rarely done in Indonesia.
This included demographic information, previous comorbidities, type of IFI, antifungal
type used, duration, and indication, as well as, outcomes such as development of acute kidney injury (AKI), liver damage (LD), ICU admission, hospital LOS, and mortality.
Meanwhile the fluconazole MICs varied from 0.12 to 4 [micro]g/mL, and the antifungals
itraconazole and voriconazole presented MICs of < 0.03 [micro]g/mL.
Some health-care providers prescribe antifungal
drugs on a long-term basis, but this can lead to drug-resistant candidiasis that is more difficult to treat.
Increased incidence of antifungal
drug resistance has become a major cause of concern in the management of candidemia.
The range of exterior antifungals
is still dominated by imported products.
Objective: To determine the prevalence and antifungal
susceptibility pattern of Candida species.
