The Prospective Antifungal Therapy Alliance (PATH Alliance®) performed prospective surveillance of invasive fungal infections (IFIs) among patients hospitalized at 25 medical centers in North America between 2004 and 2008, collecting information on the epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and mortality rates of IFIs. In total, 7526 IFIs were identified in(More)
This analysis aimed to characterize the epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of invasive fungal infections (IFIs) in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Data were examined for HIV patients enrolled in the Prospective Antifungal Therapy (PATH) Alliance registry, a multicenter, observational study of patients with IFIs in North(More)
This analysis describes the epidemiology and outcomes of candidemia in patients enrolled in the Prospective Antifungal Therapy Alliance (PATH Alliance®) registry from 2004 to 2008. Overall, 4067 Candida isolates were identified from 3648 patients. The most common Candida spp. were C. albicans (42.1%), C. glabrata (26.7%), C. parapsilosis (15.9%), C.(More)
OBJECTIVES The study investigated the epidemiology and outcome of invasive aspergillosis (IA), an important cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. METHODS Cases of proven/probable IA from the Prospective Antifungal Therapy Alliance (PATH Alliance(®)) registry - a prospective surveillance network comprising 25 centers in the United(More)
This analysis describes the epidemiology and outcomes of invasive candidiasis caused by non-albicans species of Candida in patients enrolled in the Prospective Antifungal Therapy Alliance (PATH Alliance) registry from 2004 to 2008. A total of 2,496 patients with non-albicans species of Candida isolates were identified. The identified species were C.(More)
The aim of this analysis was to identify therapeutic micafungin regimens for children that produce the same micafungin exposures known to be effective for the prevention and treatment of Candida infections in adults. Pediatric pharmacokinetic data from 229 patients between the ages of 4 months and <17 years were obtained from four phase I and two phase III(More)
Invasive Fusarium infections occur in immunosuppressed patients, especially those with haematological malignancies. We conducted a descriptive analysis of data from patients with invasive fusariosis identified in the Prospective Antifungal Therapy Alliance registry, which collected data on invasive fungal infections in the United States and Canada from 2004(More)
Candida osteomyelitis is associated with significant morbidity; however, data on the management of Candida osteomyelitis are limited. The Prospective Antifungal Therapy (PATH) Alliance® registry is a comprehensive, multicenter, prospective, observational registry that collected data on patients with invasive fungal infections between 2004 and 2008. The aim(More)
Mucormycosis is increasingly encountered in immunosuppressed patients, such as those with haematological malignancies or stem cell transplantation. We present a descriptive analysis of 121 cases of mucormycosis from the Prospective Antifungal Therapy Alliance(®) registry (July 2004 to December 2008). Patients with proven or probable mucormycosis were(More)
BACKGROUND The Prospective Antifungal Therapy Alliance(®) registry is a prospective surveillance study that collected data on the diagnosis, management and outcomes of invasive fungal infections (IFIs) from 25 centres in North America from 2004 to 2008. OBJECTIVE To evaluate surveillance data on IFIs obtained from study centres located in Canada. (More)
