This study investigates the inhibitory effect of Anchomanes difformis extract-pure honey mixture on bacteria and fungi isolates from sputum of infected patients of a hospital. Inhibitory zones against the bacteria by the extract ranges between 6mm and 25mm. Highest zone of inhibition (25mm),was recorded at 0.3g/ml concentration against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, while, the least (6mm) was recorded against Staphylococcus epidermidis at 0.1g/ml. concentration. Fungi inhibition zones range…

Honey: a reservoir for microorganisms and an inhibitory agent for microbes.
TLDR
There is a need for caution in the use of honey in wound management, and wounds to be treated with honey should be investigated with a swab for the microorganisms present on the wound and their sensitivity to the honey before commencing honey treatment.

Sputum Candida albicans presages FEV₁ decline and hospital-treated exacerbations in cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
Airway colonization with C albicans presaged a greater rate of FEV₁ decline and hospital-treated exacerbations in CF and was best predicted by pancreatic insufficiency, osteopenia, and cocolonization with Pseudomonas species.
