Antimicrobial resistance is a global threat. To counter the growing menace of antibiotic resistance, several stewardship initiatives have been incorporated a part of overarching strategy of healthcare delivery. In comparison, antifungal stewardship has attracted limited attention due to several factors such as limited antifungal resistance and less burden of fungal infections compared to bacterial infections. However, emergence of resistant fungi such as multidrug resistant Candida auris has provided impetus to antifungal stewardship (AFS) programs. This review summarises the existing data on AFS programs particularly in relation to invasive candidiasis, both in the empirical setting and in the setting of proven infection.

The need for antifungal stewardship is gaining recognition with increasing incidence of invasive fungal infection (IFI) and antifungal resistance alongside the high cost of antifungal drugs. Following...
In recent years antifungal stewardship (AFS) programmes have been increasingly recommended to provide optimal antifungal treatment. In a previous study (study I) in the department of haematology and o...
The feasibility of using whole-genome-sequencing (WGS) for the prediction of antifungal resistance in anidulafungin-resistant Candida tropicalis candidaemia isolates was investigated.
Candidaemia is associated with high mortality. The European Confederation of Medical Mycology (ECMM) has recently proposed the ECMM Quality of Clinical Candidemia Management (EQUAL) scoring criteria w...
In the face of emerging drug resistant pathogens and a decrease in the development of new antimicrobial agents, antibiotic stewardship should be practiced in all critical care units. Antibiotic stewar...

A seven-membered aromatic ring compound. It is structurally related to a number of naturally occurring antifungal compounds (ANTIFUNGAL AGENTS).
Antifungal metabolite from several fungi, mainly Trichoderma viride; inhibits protein synthesis by binding to ribosomes; proposed as antifungal and antineoplastic; used as tool in cellular biochemistry.

MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a family of bacteria with resistance to one or more major antibiotics. There are currently 17 different strains of MRSA. Two particular strains, EMRSA15 and EMRSA16 account for 96% of MRSA blood...
