Novel Biomarkers for Invasive Aspergillosis

Diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis is often difficult to achieve with certainty, as this requires direct evidence of invasive growth on histopathological examination. A probable diagnosis can be suspected based on both clinical and mycological evidence of the disease, in presence of a susceptible patient. The EORTC-MSG guidelines offer a widely ...

Phase N/A

PET/CT Guided Antifungal Stewardship in Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis

Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is the 3rd most frequent invasive mycosis in France with a rising incidence and 40% mortality (Bitar, 2014, Lortholary, 2011). Modern antifungals (AF) improved survival of IPA but lead to ecological, toxic and cost issues. In agreement with the " plan national de la bonne matrise ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Multicenter Evaluation of the MycoGenie Kit for the Diagnosis of Invasive Aspergillosis

Accurate diagnosis of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) in patients at high risk of invasive fungal infection remains challenging due to difficulties in differentiating IPA from pulmonary infections caused by other molds or bacteria on clinical and radiological grounds. Therefore, culture-based microbiological diagnosis is of primary importance but requires semi-invasive or ...

Phase N/A

Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis Complicating Influenza Infection

This prospective multicentre case-control registration study in Dutch and Belgian ICUs will assess the difference in incidence and outcome of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) in ICU patients with severe influenza compared with influenza-negative control patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia during the coming three influenza seasons (2017-2020). The study will further ...

Phase N/A

PCR Based Detection of Azole Resistance in A. Fumigatus to Improve Patient Outcome.

Invasive aspergillosis (IA) is the most common mould infection in immunocompromised haematological patients. A relatively low mortality is observed when diagnosis is made early and treatment with voriconazole, the first choice of treatment, is initiated promptly. However, azole resistance in Aspergillus fumigatus is increasingly reported in Europe. Fungal susceptibility testing ...

Phase N/A

Azole-resistance in Aspergillus

Azole-resistance in Aspergillus (A.) fumigatus has emerged as a global health problem. Even more, it has been associated with high mortality rates in patients with invasive aspergillosis. Generally, two routes of resistance development are distinguished either in patients with chronic pulmonary aspergillosis under long-term azole therapy or in agriculture by ...

Bronchoalveolar Lavage Lateral-Flow Device Test for Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis: a Multicenter Study

Project Outlook Sensitive and specific biomarkers for early diagnosis of IPA are urgently needed to improve survival. In this multicenter study we will evaluate the potential of the novel Lateral Flow Device test for early, bedside diagnosis of IPA. A successful implementation of the studies hypothesis requires a solid background ...

Phase N/A

Aspergillus-specific IgG Assays for the Diagnosis of Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis (CPA)-Multicenter Study

chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) is one of the most refractory pulmonary infectious diseases, and the incidence is increased rapidly in recent years. Serum detection of Aspergillus-specific IgG is considered to be the most reliable method for diagnosing CPA, however, there is no formal report on the appropriate cut-off value for ...

Phase N/A

Influence of a Combined Pharmacogenetic Score on Through Plasma Voriconazole Concentrations in Haematological Patients

Voriconazole (VRC), the gold-standard treatment of invasive aspergillosis is characterized by variables and nonlinear pharmacokinetics, causing many under- or over-dosing. A link exist between trough plasma concentrations (Cmin) of VRC and effectiveness but also its toxicity. Thus the longitudinal therapeutic drug monitoring of VRC is now recommended with a therapeutic ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Pre-existing Invasive Aspergillosis on Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

Background & Rationale. In patients with pre-existing invasive aspergillosis allo-HSCT is feasible without progression of fungal infection. However, the influence of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IA) on transplant related complications and on long term survival has not been investigated in a larger patient cohort under current conditions. Recently the IDWP and ...
