Candidiasis Infections Exposed in New Online Video

The IAQ Video Network produces another educational video about the health effects of exposure to microbial and environmental hazards.
 
 
Sept. 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health.  The latest educational video discusses the threat to human health due to fungal infections caused by Candida albicans.

Candidiasis is caused by fungal pathogens from the Candida genus.  Most infections are caused by Candida albicans, a type of fungus that grows both as a yeast and filamentous cells.   The ubiquitous fungi represent one of the most common fungal pathogens to affect the human population.

The fungi are the causal agent of opportunistic oral and genital infections in humans.  In addition, systemic fungal infections due to Candida albicans represent an important cause of morbidity and mortality in immune-compromised patients.  Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) and biofilms from the fungi on the surface of medical devices can be significant threats to human health.

Invasive candidiasis is a type of fungal infection that occurs when Candida enter the blood, causing bloodstream infections and then spreading throughout the body.  One form of invasive candidiasis, candidemia is the fourth most common bloodstream infection among hospitalized patients in the United States.

“The symptoms of invasive candidiasis are not specific,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.     “If the infection spreads to organs such as the kidneys, liver, or other areas and if the infection does not respond to treatment, the patient’s organs may fail.  We hope this new educational video helps to further educate the public about this fungal pathogen,” he continued.
