Deadly Fungal Infection Breaks and Enters Human Tissues 

Oral thrush is most commonly caused by the fungus Candida albicans but also caused by Candida glabrata or Candida tropicalis.

Candida Albicans infection in excess multiplication,  enter the bloodstream and break the human tissues and body organ.   It becomes an invasive tiny creature which multiplies faster in the blood.  Infected persons should avoid sugary foods or fruits.  The high starch containing food or rich in carbohydrate should be avoided because they are converted into sugars.  It affects the patient whose immune power is weak.  Antibiotics should not be taken for yeast infections because it kills both harmful and beneficial bacteria, this beneficial bacterial helps to control fungal growth.  Fungal infections are very hazardous to health and only very few therapies are available in the market.

The fungal infection causes oral candidiasis or oral thrush which spreads slowly to the other parts of the body.   They can lead even to sepsis condition.  The rate of fungal blood stream infection had increased more than 200% in the last two decades.  With high death rates of 20-30%, it demands effective therapeutic strategies but research on this fungal infection on humans is not sufficient to meet the needs of the growing severity in humans.  

A type of fungal C. albicans lives in the guts of the people, with it’s ability develops filaments, deadly filament version to penetrate internal organs and enters the bloodstream to the other organs of the body causing the serious condition.  Their study is published in the journal Cell Reports.  

Associate professor Traven said that they discovered a mechanism that operates C. albicans cells to produce filaments through a molecule called nitric oxide and this study would help to the development of the new antifungal drug in the future.  In the lab, Traven team found that adding mini-1 to the culture medium inhibits the filament formation of the fungus.  The death rate for Candida infection in the bloodstream is high even in countries where best care is available, so she opines that new therapeutic route for this dangerous fungal infection is the need of the hour.
