Synergistic combinations of antifungals and anti-virulence agents


http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/21505594.2015.1039885

Candida albicans, one of the pathogenic Candida species, causes high mortality rate in immunocompromised and high-risk surgical patients. In the last decade, only one new class of antifungal drug echinocandin was applied.

The increased therapy failures, such as the one caused by multi- drug resistance, demand innovative strategies for new effective antifungal drugs.

Synergistic combinations of antifungals and anti-virulence agents highlight the pragmatic strategy to reduce the development of drug resistant and potentially repurpose known antifungals, which bypass the costly and time-consuming pipeline of new drug development.

Anti-virulence and synergistic combination provide new options for antifungal drug discovery by counteracting the difficulty or failure of traditional therapy for fungal infections.
