Containment strategies to address the expanding threat of multidrug-resistant Candida auris

Expert Review of Anti-infective Therapy
Matthew W McCarthy, Thomas J Walsh

Abstract

Candida auris is an emerging multidrug resistant human yeast pathogen associated with nosocomial transmission and high mortality. The organism can be a challenge to diagnose, may be even more difficult to treat, and continues to pose an expanding threat to patients. Areas covered: Our medical center and others in the surrounding area have seen a concerning rise in confirmed cases of C. auris infection and substantial resources have been dedicated to containment measures. We draw on our in vitro and in vivo work with this organism to examine the most effective ways to curb the current outbreak. Expert commentary: We explore novel strategies to halt the spread C. auris, including enhanced molecular diagnostics, novel therapeutics, and epidemiologic studies to determine risk factors for infection and transmission.
