What Are Potential Complications of Breast Surgery?
Discussion Common reasons for seeing a breast surgeon would include management of benign or malignant masses with or without breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, and other reasons can be infection or trauma that need surgical treatment. The breast is formed starting around the 6th week of gestation by breast buds along the mammary line. Breasts then develop from the downgrowth of epithelia into the mesenchymal tissue, which continues to grow. Around 8-9 months a pit forms as entry into the lactiferous ducts. “Nipple inversion is caused either by failure of the lactiferous ducts to develop and grow during matur...

A marine microbiome antifungal targets urgent-threat drug-resistant fungi
New antifungal drugs are urgently needed to address the emergence and transcontinental spread of fungal infectious diseases, such as pandrug-resistant Candida auris. Leveraging the microbiomes of marine animals and cutting-edge metabolomics and genomic tools, we identified encouraging lead antifungal molecules with in vivo efficacy. The most promising lead, turbinmicin, displays potent in vitro and mouse-model efficacy toward multiple-drug–resistant fungal pathogens, exhibits a wide safety index, and functions through a fungal-specific mode of action, targeting Sec14 of the vesicular trafficking pathway. The efficacy...

(Radboud University Medical Center) The pathogenic fungus Candida auris, which first surfaced in 2009, is proving challenging to control. It is resistant to many fungicides and not easy to diagnose. Researchers from Radboud university medical center, Canisius-Wilhelmina Hospital (CWZ) and international colleagues have discovered that the human immune system recognizes the fungus well. The study has been able to pin-point the fungus' Achilles heel for new, effective drugs. Meanwhile, the threat posed by this emerging public health pathogen should not be underestimated.
