Nystatin


Presentation

  • We report the case of a 66-year-old woman who presented with concomitant sensitization to inhaled budesonide and oral nystatin presenting as allergic contact stomatitis and systemic allergic contact dermatitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present work describes the development and stability studies of an innovative formulation of nystatin and lidocaine pastilles for the treatment of oral mucositis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is caused by a dimorphic fungus called Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and is a disseminated, systemic disorder that involves the lungs and other organs but presents characteristic oral lesions as the prominent feature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Present study was performed to evaluate the efficacy, toxicity and pharmacokinetics of antifungal drug nystatin incorporated in immunomodulator tuftsin-bearing liposomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present the case of a 60-year-old man with a perforated tympanic membrane who suffered a total hearing loss after the instillation of cream containing triamcinolone, neomycin, gramicidin and nystatin (Tri-Adcortyl cream) into his ear canal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Progressive Dysphagia
  • A 35-year-old man with idiopathic hypoparathyroidism and moniliasis developed progressive dysphagia and weight loss. Diagnostic studies established the presence of esophageal moniliasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Blood Culture Positive
  • Antifungal therapy should be started on all candidemic patients within 24 h after a blood culture positive for yeast.[web.archive.org]
Fusarium
  • All Candida and Aspergillus strains had lower minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) values for NYT-IL than that for NYT; the MICs of the Fusarium strains were similar for NYT & NYT-IL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Control: placebo, no treatment, fluconazole or amphotericin B.[dx.doi.org]
  • We conclude that mucosal Nys treatment of HBEs provides a simple in vitro model to recapitulate the Na( ) and volume hyperabsorptive features of CF airway epithelia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Evaluations were repeated at baseline, the end of treatment (day 14), and throughout follow-up (days 30, 60, and 90).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Dental plaque becomes colonized with potential respiratory pathogens in critically ill patients and is important in the etiology of VAP. Future studies, therefore, should investigate the impact of nystatin on the oral microbiome, VAP, and mortality.[ccforum.biomedcentral.com]
  • Unfortunately, these symptoms and signs are nonspecific and can be the result of a variety of infectious and noninfectious etiologies.[web.archive.org]

Epidemiology

  • Given the paucity of data comparing fluconazole with nystatin, the choice of antifungal agent should be influenced by the incidence of IFI, local epidemiology and relative cost. 2012 The Authors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • AIM: To review the use of antifungal chemoprophylaxis to prevent neonatal invasive fungal infections (IFI) in very low birthweight infants (VLBW METHOD: Systematic review of randomised controlled trials.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To examine recent evidence on the efficacy of antifungal prophylaxis to prevent neonatal systemic fungal infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We also conducted a prospective study to evaluate the efficacy of different mouthwash solutions in preventing IPFI in patients with hematologic malignancies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • (via macrolide antibiotic ) antifungal drug Any antifungal agent used to prevent or treat fungal infections in humans or animals.[ebi.ac.uk]
  • The role of nystatin prophylaxis during antibiotic therapy in the prevention of FP remains controversial, especially in programs with a modest or low baseline FP rate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
