Invasive Fusariosis: Report of Three Cases in Peru.

Fusarium species are a group of fungi that cause superficial infections, locally invasive and disseminated disease, which occur mainly in immunocompromised hosts, and occasionally in immunocompetent i...

Emerging Challenges and Opportunities in Infectious Disease Epidemiology.

Much of the intellectual tradition of modern epidemiology stems from efforts to understand and combat chronic diseases persisting through the 20th century epidemiologic transition of countries such as...

Retrospective evaluation of in vitro effect of gentamicin B1 against Fusarium species.

The in vitro susceptibility of gentamicin fractions against Fusarium growth was the subject of this retrospective study. Fusariosis was earlier an exceptionally rare human disease and an unrealistic i...

Effects of intratracheal Fusarium solani inoculation in immunocompetent mice.

Fusariosis is an infection that is caused by fungi of the Fusarium genus. It is the second most common fungus that is associated with human fungal infections, usually in immunocompromised individuals....

Epidemiology of invasive fungal infections in lung transplant recipients in Western Australia.

Invasive fungal infections (IFI) are common after lung transplantation with reported incidence at 12 months post-transplant of 8.1% to 16%, and 3-month all-cause mortality after IFI of 21.7%.

Anti-mold Azole in the Prophylaxis for Invasive Fusariosis

Patients admitted for autologous or allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation, induction-remission chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplasia or acute lymphoid leukemia, o...

Evaluation of NGS for Detection and Follow-up of Fungal Pathogens in Immunocompromised Pediatric Patients

We hypothesize that Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) can identify fungal pathogens, is more accurate than other noninvasive options and can report fungal genomic load.

Invasive Fungal Infections Surveillance Initiative

The purpose of this study is to optimize the management of patients treated for IFIs (invasive fungal infections) by establishing a real-time, continuous clinical data base that will captu...

An Observational Study of Fungal Biomarkers

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between fungal biomarker levels during anti-fungal therapy and the success of treatment for fugal infection

Invasive Mould Infections in Indian ICUs - Descriptive Epidemiology, Management and Outcome

Invasive mould infections are emerging causes of morbidity and mortality in ICU patients. This is attributed to prolonged ICU stay of critically ill patients with many co-morbidities. Mode...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Suspensions of attenuated or killed fungi administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious fungal disease.

Field of medicine concerned with the determination of causes, incidence, and characteristic behavior of disease outbreaks affecting human populations. It includes the interrelationships of host, agent, and environment as related to the distribution and control of disease.

Reporting of new and reemerging infectious diseases and studies that seek to improve the understanding of factors involved in disease emergence, prevention, and elimination.

Statistical models which describe the relationship between a qualitative dependent variable (that is, one which can take only certain discrete values, such as the presence or absence of a disease) and an independent variable. A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individual's risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.

Termination of all transmission of infection by global extermination of the infectious agent through surveillance and containment (From Porta, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 5th ed).
