International screening of the effects of a pathogenic fungus
(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.

In a “warning letter” to Purell’s parent, Gojo Industries, the agency called out the company for making numerous marketing claims that potentially position its sanitizing products as a pharmaceutical drug rather than an over-the-counter topical antiseptic. The letter from the agency’s director of compliance cited numerous examples of what the FDA says are unproven claims for Purell products m...

Systematic Review The effect of overnight storage conditions on complete denture colonization by Candida albicans and dimensional stability: A systematic review
ConclusionsCleaning of dentures before overnight storage helps reduceC. albicans colonization. If the dentures are not cleaned, the use of an alkaline peroxide –based cleaning tablet should be considered. Alternately, overnight dry storage is an option for reducingC. albicans colonization, with clinically insignificant changes to the dimensions of the complete denture.
