2014-08-27 03:59:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To determine the appropriate duration of amphotericin B therapy for Candida esophagitis. To compare the effectiveness of two different amphotericin B doses in the treatment of biopsy-proven Candida esophagitis. To determine if low-dose amphotericin B is less toxic than standard dose therapy during a limited treatment period. To evaluate pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters of the two different dosing regimens.

Adverse effects of amphotericin B in children; a retrospective comparison of conventional and liposomal formulations.

Lipid formulations of amphotericin B, rather than conventional amphotericin (c-amB), are increasingly used despite limited data comparing these preparations in children. Data on the incidence of adver...

Analysis of Hypokalemia as a Side Effect of Liposomal Amphotericin in Pediatric Patients.

Liposomal amphotericin (L-AMB) is a widely used broad-spectrum anti-fungal drug. Although L-AMB demonstrates better safety compared with amphotericin, renal dysfunction and hypokalemia are well-known ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A genus of yeast-like mitosporic Saccharomycetales fungi characterized by producing yeast cells, mycelia, pseudomycelia, and blastophores. It is commonly part of the normal flora of the skin, mouth, intestinal tract, and vagina, but can cause a variety of infections, including CANDIDIASIS; ONYCHOMYCOSIS; vulvovaginal candidiasis (CANDIDIASIS, VULVOVAGINAL), and thrush (see CANDIDIASIS, ORAL). (From Dorland, 28th ed)

An important nosocomial fungal infection with species of the genus CANDIDA, most frequently CANDIDA ALBICANS. Invasive candidiasis occurs when candidiasis goes beyond a superficial infection and manifests as CANDIDEMIA, deep tissue infection, or disseminated disease with deep organ involvement.

Candidiasis of the skin manifested as eczema-like lesions of the interdigital spaces, perleche, or chronic paronychia. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.

Autoimmune diseases affecting multiple endocrine organs. Type I is characterized by childhood onset and chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CANDIDIASIS, CHRONIC MUCOCUTANEOUS), while type II exhibits any combination of adrenal insufficiency (ADDISON'S DISEASE), lymphocytic thyroiditis (THYROIDITIS, AUTOIMMUNE;), HYPOPARATHYROIDISM; and gonadal failure. In both types organ-specific ANTIBODIES against a variety of ENDOCRINE GLANDS have been detected. The type II syndrome differs from type I in that it is associated with HLA-A1 and B8 haplotypes, onset is usually in adulthood, and candidiasis is not present.
