Drugs in Clinical Development for Fungal Infections (review includes CD101)
Despite increasing rates of invasive fungal infections being reported globally, only a single antifungal drug has been approved during the last decade. Resistance, toxicity, drug interactions and restricted routes of administration remain unresolved issues. This review focuses on new antifungal compounds which are currently in various clinical phases of development. We discuss two azoles with a tetrazole moiety that allows selective activity against the fungal CYP: VT-1161 for Candida infections and VT-1129 for cryptococcal meningoencephalitis.

Two weeks to bowel cancer?
There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in...

These foods fight deadly lung disease
Your lungs are under constant assault. That’s why COPD is the third leading cause of death according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 15 million Americans have it. COPD is short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It’s a group of lung diseases like emphysema and chronic bronchitis. They constrict your airways. They make breathing difficult and can cause wheezing or coughing. Most doctors will tell you that smoking is the major culprit. But even if you never smoked you are still at risk of COPD. You see, our modern world is a big factor. Our air is full of chemicals. Bad air i...

3 nutrients for a sharp, ageless brain
For decades mainstream medicine told us that dying neurons are the problem with an aging brain. But the difference between an old brain and a sharp, young brain isn’t just neurons… You see, mental function depends on two kinds of brain cells. Neurons are just half the story. In fact, when scientists studied Albert Einstein’s brain they found he had a wealth of “other” brain cells that accounted for his genius.  I’m talking about “glia,” or “glial” brain cells. Scientists have known about glial cells for a long time. But they thought they were just support ...

How Air Pollution Can Lead To Weight Gain
I just read a study that stunned me. It suggested that the air we breathe is making us fat.   A researcher from Duke University placed two groups of rats in separate chambers. One group was exposed to Beijing’s super toxic air. That city has some of the worst air pollution in the world. The second group breathed filtered air. The two groups ate exactly the same diet. After 19 days, the rats exposed to the air pollution were 18% fatter. Their LDL levels were 50% higher and their triglycerides were 46% higher. This indicates high levels of fat in their blood. To make matters worse, their lungs were 25% heavier...
