Preparation, and Assessment of Antidermatophyte Activity of Miconazole-Urea Water-Soluble Film.

Front Microbiol 2020 3;11:385. Epub 2020 Apr 3.

Department of Pharmaceutical Technology, Menoufia University, Shebeen El-Kom, Egypt.

Cutaneous mycoses, particularly tinea pedis caused by , are commonly known infections in humans. They are still considered as a major public health problem worldwide affecting the quality of life due to prolonged period of treatment and development of drug resistance, which leads to recurrence of infections. The objective of our study was to assess the effectiveness of miconazole in the presence and absence of urea, as a penetration enhancer, against and to formulate both of them in a water-soluble film to be applied topically for the purpose of treating tinea pedis caused by this fungus.

Teikyo University Institute of Medical Mycology.

The prevalence of tinea pedis (also known as athlete's foot) in Japanese workers as well as contamination of their footwear by pathogenic filamentous fungi were investigated. Health checks by a dermatologist at a factory located in the Kanto region (Japan) led to a clinical and morphologic diagnosis of tinea pedis in 9 of 19 workers. Scales obtained from the feet and dust obtained from the protective footwear (safety shoes) worn daily in the factory were obtained from these nine subjects and tested using a mycological culture technique.

Characteristics, Associated Diseases, and Management of Gram-negative Toe-web Infection: A French Experience.

Acta Derm Venereol 2019 Nov;99(12):1121-1126

Department of Dermatology, Bordeaux University Hospital, 33000 Bordeaux, France.

Gram-negative toe-web infection can cause pain and disability, be complicated by a long healing time, management failure, and cellulitis, and recur due to persistent predisposing factors. To describe the clinical features and management of Gram-negative toe-web infection and evaluate predisposing factors and associated diseases, their management, and the effect of controlling them on the rate of recurrence, we conducted a retrospective real-life study of patients with Gram-negative toe-web infection. Among the 62 patients (sex ratio 9:1), 31 experienced more than one episode of Gram-negative toe-web infection. Read More

Infectious and Tropical Diseases Research Center, Health Research Institute, Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences, Ahvaz, Iran.

The fungi Trichophyton mentagrophytes and T interdigitale account for significant amount of dermatophytosis cases worldwide. These two dermatophytes form a species complex and have a number of ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region genotypes, allowing simultaneous species identification and strain typing. Our aim was to describe the geographic distribution of T mentagrophytes/T interdigitale ITS region genotypes and find an association between the genotypes and clinical presentations of respective infections.
