DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Candidiasis Therapeutics Pipeline Analysis, 2017 - Clinical Trials & Results, Patent, Designation, Collaboration, and Other Developments" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Candidiasis is a very common type of fungal infection caused by fungus known as candida. Candida is usually found in various parts of our body including mouth, skin or belly and cause no harm. It is only when this fungus gets right environment it multiplies and grows uncontrollably. This condition results in occurring of the infection, known as candidiasis.

The diagnosis of candidiasis done methods such as wet mount, microscope examination, gram stain, potassium hydroxide smears, urinalysis, urine fungal cultures and endoscopy. The treatment of candidiasis includes drugs such as echinocandins, caspofungin, micafungin and anidulafungin, along with fluconazole, as well as lipid formulations of amphotericin B medications in various situations.
Drug manufacturing companies are in the quest to find better and new treatment strategies with potential targets such as beta-1,3-D glucan synthase and cytochrome P450 sterol 14a-demethylase (CYP51) which can also prove to be effective in candidiasis treatment. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has granted various designations including orphan drug, qualified infectious disease product (QIDP) with fast track status to many drugs which are driving the growth of the pipeline.
As of May 2017, the candidiasis pipeline comprises approximately 22 active drug candidates in different stages of development.
