What Are Treatment Options for Pediatric Onycomycosis?
Discussion Onycomycosis is a fungal infection of the nails. It has a world-wide prevalence of 0.3% with some geographical variations such as in the U.S. it is 0.44%. It is an uncommon problem especially in children. It is very uncommon in those under 6 years and only very sporadic case reports in those under 2 years. The lower incidence is felt to be due to children’s faster nail growth, smaller surface to infect, reduced exposure to fungi, lower prevalence of tinea pedis and especially less cumulative trauma. Onycomycosis is more common in families (unsure if this is due to genetic factors or family members having m...

Researchers' breakthrough in tackling challenge of antifungal resistance
(Swansea University) Ground-breaking work by university experts in Tennessee, Texas and Swansea is helping develop a better understanding of the growing threat posed by antifungal drug resistance. Invasive aspergillosis is a devastating disease caused by breathing in small airborne spores of the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus and it is a condition where drug resistance has been encountered. They have just released a paper revealing how they have been able to identify a previously uncharacterized genetic mutation in clinical isolates that leads to resistance.

Molecular Mycology: Current Approaches to Fungal Pathogenesis
Fungal diseases are significant causes of mortality and morbidity in both the developed and the developing world. The recent increases in the incidence and severity of invasive fungal infections are directly attributable to new susceptible patient populations. Examples of these large, at-risk populations include patients with AIDS; hospitalized patients being treated for cancer and autoimmune disorders; andthose receiving organ transplants.Courses& Workshops (Source: The Aspergillus Website - updates)

Antifungal activity and detoxification of aflatoxins
(Bentham Science Publishers) Aflatoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungi of the genus Aspergillus, which occur naturally in cereals like corn, beans and rice. Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is the main aflatoxin produced by the fungi and has the highest toxicity, mainly targeting the liver, while also exhibits teratogenic, mutagenic and carcinogenic effects in humans and several animal models.
