Posted January 07, 2019 07:11:21 A popular anti-fungal medicine is a type of fungus that can be extracted from a fungus to treat infections, new research shows.
The treatment uses a tiny amount of a fungus called agar agar which is also found in medicinal plants.
The fungi is commonly used as a topical antifreeze and is used in the treatment of infections, such as acne, but scientists have been trying to make it safer to use.
Agar agars are used to make the antifrost, or antifunction, for antifluoridation, or the treatment that protects skin from ultraviolet radiation, which can cause skin cancers.
“We can extract a few drops of the fungus from a small amount of agar, and when the powder is mixed with a solution of the antifeed agent, the antibacterial effect is increased,” Dr. Mark O. Kostis of the Department of Dermatology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania told CNBC.
The powdered fungus can be dissolved in water and the mixture is then applied directly to the affected skin.
The process is then repeated every few days.
“It is the combination of the two that helps make the fungus more effective against fungi,” Dr Kostes said.
“When combined with a fungicide, we can effectively kill them.”
The research is being published in the journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.
Agaremia, a fungus that grows on the surface of a plant, has been found to be highly resistant to some of the antibiotics currently on the market, including ceftriaxone.
Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have been working on a new type of anti-Fungal Antifrost.
A new type is not yet commercially available, but the fungus is being developed by scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Research in Germany.
They have recently found that it works well on fungal pathogens, including the fungus, as well as fungi like Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus.
“Fungi are resistant to all antibiotics,” Dr Oster said.
While the fungus does not cause skin problems, it can be very irritating, and it is very difficult to treat with traditional antifunctors, such for instance, antibiotics.
“You have to have a topical approach, which means the fungus needs to be applied on the skin,” Dr Zohra Khashoggi, the first author of the study, told CNBC by email.
“The fungus can only be dissolved at room temperature, which is the lowest temperature the fungi can survive.
If you add too much moisture, the fungus dies.”
The researchers believe that the new fungus will be used in a clinical trial, and that it may be developed as a drug that is effective against certain infections, including fungal skin infections.
The new research was supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the National Science Foundation.
Dr Omer Fakhry, a microbiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, told the New York Times that the research could help to develop new drugs that could be used for more than skin infections, but also against fungal diseases such as the common cold.
“This is a very exciting area of research,” he said.
