FIELD OF THE INVENTION
 The invention relates to an antifungal mixture with fungal organism Pythium oligandrum designed for fighting fungi including fungal diseases and bacteria.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
 Fungi and fungal diseases are a problem of every society and especially fungal diseases of skin of both people and animals belong to frequently occurring diseases of people and animals. Such fungal diseases are even more serious because they are usually transmitted not only by a direct contact of the sick and the healthy but also through the objects, which were in contact with the source of infection.
 The treatment of such dermatological diseases is very difficult and lengthy and nowadays, the treatment methods are based especially on the application of system antimycotics, exceptionally also chemotherapy, which means that aggressive forms of treatment with chemical therapeutics are used against pathogenic microorganisms, which cause the diseases; however, they usually impact not only the targeted pathogen but also the tissues of the recipient of the therapeutics. Other aggressive forms of treatment with antibiotics and hormones have contraindication, too.
 The said conservative types of treatment are often completed with cosmetic preparations, which are, however, based on the application of chemistry again, even though there are also natural cosmetic preparations, the basic source of which are substances of both floral and animal origin, including some inorganic substances occurring in nature (salts etc.).
 Only recently, dermatological troubles have started to be approached differentially and in a complex way and sensitive natural methods have been used preferentially more and more. Such methods also include e.g. the application of the fungus Pythium oligandrum according to the document CZ 9883 U1 in the form of the biological preparation for fighting the origins of dermatophysis, which includes the said fungal organism in the form of oospora as the effective substance, when the total number of oospora is 2×105 in 1 g of the preparation as a maximum. However, this solution has a limited range of application and its effective substance is only bound on the inorganic carrier, which is silicon dioxide.
 Fungi from walls and fungi, yeast fungi and bacteria from various objects are removed by means of a series of different preparations, which are, however, never based on the application of the effective substance of the fungal organism Pythium oligandrum.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
 The above mentioned disadvantages of the current solutions are eliminated to a certain extent with the antifungal mixture with the fungal organism Pythium oligandrum according to the invention, where the effective substance of the fungal organism is used in higher concentrations and with the application of new components of the final mixtures and newly also zoospore and zoosporangia and enzymes.
 The fungal organism Pythium oligandrum from the kingdom Chromista--Stramenopila is a strong mycoparasite; it parasites over 20 families of causative agents of fungal diseases and represents the dividing line between fungi and protozoa because of its sexual as well as asexual reproduction. The fibres of Pythium oligandrum penetrate the cells of the parasite (fungi, yeast fungi, bacteria) and draw the substances required for its own nutrition from them. On the basis of nutrition and spatial competition, it squeezes out the pathogens from the spaces. The nature of the activity of this fungus is, therefore, parasiting on fungi with the simultaneous production of enzymes, which further increase the efficiency of the fungus. It can be said that Pythium oligandrum attacks the opponent with direct parasitism. After the achievement of the task, i.e. exhaustion of the parasite, Pythium oligandrum disappears from that locality (both human and animal bodies do not represent a natural environment for it and it cannot adapt to such environment) and it gives way for the re-settlement of the so-called normal micro-flora or, unless it finds new nutrition (fungi), it is encapsulated into dormancy conditions and its life cycle is paused.
 It has been newly detected that for suppressing fungal diseases and their symptoms, it is more advantageous to use higher concentrations of the effective substance, i.e. reproduction organs, than 2×105 in 1 g of the mixture. Further to that, Pythium oligandrum can be used independently or in combination with other carriers (components) than silicon dioxide, which is also used according to the aforesaid applied design.
 Higher concentrations of the effective substance can be achieved by the application of other reproduction organs of the fungal organism Pythium oligandrum than only oospore. The number of the reproduction organs of the fungal organism Pythium oligandrum according to this technical solution is higher than 2×105 in 1 g of the mixture. In terms of the weight expression, it means that the mixture consists of 0.001 to 25 weight portions of Pythia oligandrum as a minimum and 75 to 99.999 weights portions of inert components.
 A new finding also concerns other mechanisms of the effect. Many diseases are caused by the presence of bacteria. With its metabolism, Pythium oligandrum produces various enzymes used for the decomposition of host organisms. Such enzymes also represent unfavourable environment for bacteria and, at the same time, the presence of bacteria in the affected organs is supported by the occurrence of microscopic fungi producing nutrition components that are important to the bacterial development. Pythium oligandrum can parasite on such microscopic fungi and, thereby violate the environment suitable for the propagation of pathogenic bacteria. The combination of both factors results in the suppression of reproduction of bacteria, which cease in causing the putrefactive processes. In the same way, the bio-films are violated, which could cause diseases of the urinary system and, in case of occurrence on teeth, gingivitis or contaminate heterogeneous materials used in various treatment methods.
 Surprisingly it was detected that Pythium oligandrum also suppresses symptoms of other diseases than dermatophysis, namely also microbiological settlement of proboscis, other inflammations of buccal caxity, psoriasis, haemorrhoids, varicose ulcers, bed sores, "diabetic feet", atopic eczema, acne, cold sores, sore spots, nail fungi, falling hair, dandruff or old-age itchiness. In the veterinary section, this solution can be newly used for suppressing mycotic infections and putrefactive processes on paws, cloven hoofs, hoofs, hair, skin, eyes, shells, in mouth, scales, mucous membranes and auditory passages of animals or in the body of animals.
 Therefore, this new solution enables to use the mixture for the treatment of human diseases of fungal, bacterial or other origin on skin, mucous membranes, in the hair part or in the body of humans. Further to that, this solution enables to use the mixtures for animals against the diseases of fungal, bacterial or other origin on paws, cloven hoofs, hoofs, hair, skin, eyes, shells, in mouth, scales, mucous membranes and auditory passages of animals or in the body of animals.
 Another application is also the violation of bio-films on heterogeneous materials used both in human and veterinary medicine (artificial valves, joint replacements, contact lenses, catheters etc.). The technical solution also enables to eliminate microflora virtually from all objects, which come into contact with humans and animals, e.g. from interiors of the means of transport, seat furniture, animal cages etc.
 The above mentioned new applications of the fungal organism Pythium oligandrum are also enabled by the new application of other components forming the mixture. New mixtures were examined and selected because of better, more understandable and more comfortable application of the preparation for the consumer so that their possible preparation for application and the actual application were clear, simple and comfortable and corresponded to the common habits in the twenty first century. At the same time, they shall also comply with the requirements for the purpose of application. Various inert carriers are used for the new mixtures in different ratios, which do not damage the microscopic fungus Pythium oligandrum (creation of the fungal fibres and characteristic echinate oospore, zoospore and zoosporangia) and producing various enzymes, which are collectively called oligandrin.
 Pythium oligandrum is used in various concentrations for these new mixtures, when the number of the reproductive organs of the fungal organism Pythium oligandrum is higher than 2×105 in 1 g of the mixture.
 The new inert components are especially biological organic and/or inorganic solutions, such as oil bases, physiological solutions, aromatic solutions, ointments, suppositories, pastes, creams, toothpastes, mouthwashes etc. Further to that, it concerns suspensions, emulsions or solid (loose) compositions of individual components, e.g. dusting powders, powders etc. or suspensions, emulsions or solutions from such individual substances. In terms of weight expression, as stated above, it means that the mixture includes 0.001 to 25 weight portions of Pythium oligandrum and 75 to 99.999 weight portions of inert components.
 The activity of Pythium oligandrum in the mixture only arises after soaking or wetting e.g. also by skin, which is always sweating etc.
