Targeting hard-to-kill fungal infections
Reston, VA – Killing the disease without killing the patient is an old dilemma for doctors fighting cancer and some of the tougher microorganisms such as fungal infections in individuals with suppressed immune systems. Drugs have little effect when a patient's own immune system isn't available to help, and these fungi can resist external radiation that would kill even a perfectly healthy human. But they can be easily killed by a very small dose of radiation inside their cells. Monoclonal antibodies can be designed to deliver radiation to specific cell types while sparing surrounding tissue. These designer antibodies, armed with radioactive isotopes, have been found to be highly effective against some types of cancer, but the combination may also be useful in other types of serious disease. This technique is known as radioimmunotherapy (RIT). A study appearing in the February issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine demonstrates that radioimmunotherapy (RIT) provides a new, highly effective way to kill Cryptococcus neoformans and Histoplasma capsulatum, the fungi responsible for fungal meningitis and pneumonia, using much smaller levels of radiation than required to kill the fungi by external radiation. The study used organism-specific monoclonal antibodies coupled with radioactive isotopes of bismuth or rhenium.

Heart drug might help fight chronic fungal infections
Johns Hopkins scientists have determined why a drug routinely used to treat heart arrhythmias might become a crucial addition to fighting chronic fungal infections, they report online in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. Last year, scientists elsewhere noted the drug's ability to kill fungi. Now, a Johns Hopkins research team has found that amiodarone kills by disrupting cells' interior and exterior calcium balance. Importantly, this is completely different from the way in which commonly used antifungal agents miconazole and fluconazole stop fungal growth, say the researchers. In their experiments, a combination of amiodarone and either of the "azoles" killed dramatically more fungi than expected. "This antiarrhythmic drug, in low doses, combined with azoles looks very promising in the lab and appears to be worth taking a look at clinically," says Rajini Rao, Ph.D., associate professor of physiology in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine's Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences. "The azoles prevent fungi from growing, but don't actually kill them the immune system is supposed to do that. Amiodarone kills them instead of keeping them dormant." While fungal infections in general are easy to get rid of, in patients with depressed immune systems or with conditions like cystic fibrosis that increase susceptibility to chronic or recurring fungal infections, prolonged use of azoles can lead to the fungus becoming resistant to treatment. Finding a way to treat severe and life-threatening fungal infections with an option that boosts the effects of azoles without relying on the strength of the immune system is attractive, says Rao, who studies how calcium is brought into cells.

Contents Fungal Infections The treatment of invasive fungal diseases is an ongoing clinical challenge, particularly in people with compromised immune systems following disease- or treatment-related complications. Indeed, reports indicate that invasive fungal infections affect between 10% and 25% of patients with acute leukemia treated by allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and that over 50% of these patients die. In patients with disseminated infections or persistent neutropenia, the death rate climbs to nearly 100%.
Varied success in managing these infections has been achieved with the traditional antifungal therapies amphotericin B and 5-fluorocytosine, as well as with the newer agents fluconazole and itraconazole. However, limitations of these agents include adverse side effects, as well as an inability to effectively treat some refractory infections or the uncommon fungi (such as Fusarium or Scedosporium species) that are occurring more frequently. The need for improved therapies to prevent and treat primary and secondary infections has led to further developments of antifungal drugs, such as voriconazole, a member of a class of drugs known as the triazoles.

Fungal infections of the foot are remarkably common, affecting about 15% of people in the UK. Topical fungicides, some available without prescription from chemists, are the first treatment option. When they fail, oral fungicides can be tried. Two systematic reviews tell us how effective these are.
Systematic reviews
Both systematic reviews [1,2] had a wide search strategy for randomised trials. As well as at least 10 electronic databases, several journals were hand searched and companies and schools of podiatry in the UK were asked for unpublished trials. For skin infections, only trials that used microscopy and culture were included. The outcome was cure rate at follow up from the reported mycological results, with negative results on microscopy and no growth on culture.
Results for topical azoles
Twelve trials with more than 10 patients in both treatment groups compared azoles with placebo (Figure 1). Usually treatment was for four to six weeks, and follow up for four to 10 weeks.

If you suspect tinea please send generous scrapings of the skin or clippings of the nail to the Laboratory for direct examination and culture and please send these specimens before you start treatment with systemic or topical anti-fungals.
  • Think of tinea in any scaly rash that is not obviously psoriasis or eczema etc.
    Asymmetrical scaly rashes should alert you to the possibility of tinea.

    Fungal Infections of Man Here will be a consideration of fungal species commonly associated with infections in humans While fungi are ubiquitous in nature,they are primarily involved in degradation of organic waste material and very few cause human disease (other areas of importance are in food and drug technology).
    Representative fungal organisms of medical importance in human disease to be considered here are:
    • Candida albicans (skin infections, enteritis, vaginitis, thrush, systemic disease)
    • Cryptococcus neoformans (meningitis, pulnonary and disseminated disease, skin, bone lesions)
    • Blastomyces dermatitidis (chronic granulomatous and suppurative disease; mutiple organs systems may be affected)
    • Microsporum canis, Microsporum gypsum (Tinea Capitis, Tinea Corporis, Tinea Barbae)
    General features of Fungi
    Before one can discuss these organisms, it is important to understand that fungi are eucaryoytes and therefore differ from the procaryotic bacteria in size ,structural organization, life cycle and modes of multiplication.
    Their complexity of organization and variety of modes of reproduction helps one to differentiate among them on the basis of morphological features and therefore microscopic observations as well as cultural characteristics is an important part of their identification protocol.

    Most people are familiar with infections and diseases caused by bacteria and viruses, but many are unaware that there is a whole set of disorders related to infections by fungi (singular: fungus). Many of these fungal infections affect the skin. Doctors give some fungal infections of the skin the general name "tinea." Superficial fungal infections are found in the top layers of the skin and mucous membranes, the hair, and the nails. Examples of fungal infections of the skin and other external surfaces include athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm, and candida. These can affect the hair and nails as well. Deep fungal infections invade deeper layers of the skin and hair follicles and can spread to the blood or internal organs. Fungi Fungi are a unique group of organisms that have some plantlike characteristics. Examples of fungi include mushrooms, mold, and yeast. Fungi differ from plants, however, in two major ways: (1) their cell walls are made of chitin, rather than cellulose, and (2) they lack the ability to make their own food by photosynthesis; thus they grow directly on their food source. This food source can be the human skin.

    Fungal Infections
    About three years ago, I first noticed that the toenails of my big toes were getting thick and yellowish. At first I thought it was "athlete's foot" and I treated it with over-the-counter substances like Tinactin to no avail. I also tried home remedies like soaking my feet in vinegar and in tea. They don't seem to be getting any worse, but the nails are hard to cut and are somewhat tender (I'm a 40-year-old otherwise healthy man and do NOT have scaly skin on my feet). Since then, I've heard that there is no cure for fungus nails (which I'm assuming this is), but recently I read about a new drug in USA Today. Could you enlighten me on this please?
    A: Fungal infections of the toenail are fairly common and until recently, difficult to eradicate. Several anti-fungal drugs have been developed which are about 80% effective in treating nail infections. Itraconazole (Sporanox), a capsule taken once a week for 4 months, is the drug preferred by Dr. Daniel Zivony, dermatology resident at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He cautions that while the infection may respond initially, there is a high relapse rate, and the nails may require another course of treatment. Drawbacks include the cost of the drug, about $5 per capsule, and a rare side effect of hepatitis.
