Molecular Characterization of Candida Auris

2019-10-16 10:39:38 | BioPortfolio


Candida auris is emerging fungal opportunistic pathogen in developing countries. Much studies has been conducted on Candida albicans. there was a dire need to investigate this alarming threat. Our hypothesis is that by recording the patients diagnosed with oropharygneal candidiasis and collecting clinical swab samples from these patients will be fruitful if microbiological isolation, identification and molecular characterization will be done. So this is the first study on C. auris in south punjab, Pakistan. Aim of this study is to collect epidemiological data of C. auris.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infection with a fungus of the genus COCCIDIOIDES, endemic to the SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES. It is sometimes called valley fever but should not be confused with RIFT VALLEY FEVER. Infection is caused by inhalation of airborne, fungal particles known as arthroconidia, a form of FUNGAL SPORES. A primary form is an acute, benign, self-limited respiratory infection. A secondary form is a virulent, severe, chronic, progressive granulomatous disease with systemic involvement. It can be detected by use of COCCIDIOIDIN.

Infection by a variety of fungi, usually through four possible mechanisms: superficial infection producing conjunctivitis, keratitis, or lacrimal obstruction; extension of infection from neighboring structures - skin, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx; direct introduction during surgery or accidental penetrating trauma; or via the blood or lymphatic routes in patients with underlying mycoses.

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.

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

Opportunistic fungal infection by a member of ALTERNARIA genus.
