Candida albicans is a common commensal fungus that colonizes the oropharyngeal cavity, gastrointestinal and vaginal tract, and healthy individuals’ skin. In 50% of the population, C. albicans is part of the normal flora of the microbiota. The various clinical manifestations of Candida species range from localized, superficial mucocutaneous disorders to invasive diseases that involve multiple organ systems and are life-threatening. From systemic and local to hereditary and environmental, diverse…

Ceftolozane/Tazobactam-Induced Leukocytosis and Clinical Failure in a Patient Being Treated for Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia Caused by Carbapenem-Resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa: a Case Report.
The spread of metallo-β-lactamase (MBL)-producing Enterobacterales worldwide without the simultaneous increase in active antibiotics makes these organisms an urgent public health threat. This review summarizes recent advancements in diagnostic and treatment strategies for infections caused by MBL-producing Enterobacterales. Adequate treatment of patients infected with MBL-producing Enterobacterales relies on detection of the β-lactamase in the clinic. There are several molecular platforms that…
The physical compatibility of cefiderocol for injection (prepared as a diluted 2% cefiderocol solution) with potential co-administration drug products is presented. The compatibility of cefiderocol with a selection of 91 intravenous drugs was tested at clinically relevant concentrations using the admixed volume ratio 1:1. Compatibility of the mixtures was determined by visual observations, turbidity, and particulate-matter measurements. The mixtures were examined immediately after mixing, and…
