The Unexpected and Troubling Rise of Candida auris

Hello. I am Dr Tom Chiller, chief of the Mycotic Diseases Branch at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As part of the CDC Expert Commentary Series on Medscape, I would like to tell you about Candida auris, a novel yeast that is behaving in unexpected and concerning ways, causing severe disease in countries across the globe, including the United States. Today we'll share how you can protect your patients from this potentially deadly infection, the history of this unusual bug, and how the United States is working with global partners to combat its spread.

  1. Hello,

    I was curious if you or any other physician you know of use the Breseden protocol or similar with your patients? I am looking for a non-traditional approach to my father's early onset Alzheimer's. It is very strongly inherited in 3 generations so far. We have tried neurologists already. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,
