4. Associations between low- and high-dose oral fluconazole and pregnancy outcomes: 3 nested case-control studies (Full text)

Associations between low- and high-dose oral fluconazole and pregnancy outcomes: 3 nested case-control studies While topical azoles are the first-line treatment for fungal infections, oral fluconazole is frequently used during pregnancy. We aimed to assess the effect of exposure to low and high doses of fluconazole during pregnancy on the occurrence of spontaneous abortions, major congenital malformations and stillbirths.Within the Quebec Pregnancy Cohort (1998-2015), we identified women (...) exposed to low- (≤ 150 mg) and high-dose (> 150 mg) fluconazole, and women who were not exposed. For each case of spontaneous abortion or stillbirth, up to 5 controls were randomly selected using an incidence density sampling method matched on gestational age at diagnosis of spontaneous abortion or stillbirth (index date) and the year of the last menstrual period. For cases of major congenital malformation, we considered all liveborn babies as controls. Generalized estimation equation models were used

6. Impact of routine cryptococcal antigen screening and targeted pre-emptive fluconazole therapy in antiretroviral naive HIV-infected adults with less than 100 CD4 cells/μL: a systematic review and meta-analysis. (Full text)

Impact of routine cryptococcal antigen screening and targeted pre-emptive fluconazole therapy in antiretroviral naive HIV-infected adults with less than 100 CD4 cells/μL: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Cryptococcal antigen (CrAg) screening and targeted preemptive fluconazole in antiretroviral-naive human immunodeficiency virus-infected adults with CD4 cell counts <100/μL seems promising as a strategy to reduce the burden of cryptococcal meningitis (CM). We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE (...) %-34.4%) without preemptive fluconazole and 5.7% (95% CI, 3.0%-9.7%) with preemptive fluconazole therapy initiated at 800 mg/d. In CrAg-positive participants, postscreening lumbar puncture before initiating preemptive fluconazole at 800 mg/d further reduced the incidence of CM to null and showed some survival benefits. However, the all-cause mortality rate remained significantly higher in CrAg-positive than in CrAg-negative participants (risk ratio, 2.2; 95% CI, 1.7-2.9; P < .001).

7. A systematic review of fluconazole resistance in clinical isolates of Cryptococcus species. (Full text)

A systematic review of fluconazole resistance in clinical isolates of Cryptococcus species. Fluconazole is the most commonly used antifungal agent for both the treatment of cryptococcal meningitis, and for prophylaxis against the disease. However, its prolonged use has the potential to exert selection pressure in favour of fluconazole-resistant strains. We evaluated the prevalence of fluconazole resistance in Cryptococcus spp. clinical isolates in 29 studies from 1988 to May 2017 included (...) in EMBASE and MEDLINE databases. A total of 4995 Cryptococcus isolates from 3210 patients constituted this study; 248 (5.0%) of the isolates from relapsed episodes of cryptococcosis were included in this analysis. Eleven (38%) of the studies used minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) breakpoints of ≥64 μg/mL to define fluconazole resistance, 6 (21%) used ≥32 μg/mL, 11 (38%) used ≥16 μg/mL and 1 (3%) used ≤20 μg/mL. Overall, mean prevalence of fluconazole resistance was 12.1% (95% confidence interval

16. Duration and intensity of fluconazole for prophylaxis in preterm neonates: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. (Full text)

Duration and intensity of fluconazole for prophylaxis in preterm neonates: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. The currently available evidence shows fluconazole is an effective prophylaxis treatment against invasive fungal infections in preterm neonates in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). However, the duration and dosing of this prophylaxis treatment remain controversial. Thus, a meta-analysis and systematic review are necessary.PubMed and EMBASE were systematically searched (...) with no restrictions. All relevant citations that compared prophylactic fluconazole and no prophylaxis were considered for inclusion. Pooled effect estimates were obtained through fixed- and random-effects meta-analyses, and a meta-regression was used to explore the sources of heterogeneity in the data.Five independent randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs) involving 1006 preterm neonates were identified. Compared with no prophylaxis, the overall combined relative risks (RRs) of invasive fungal infection
