  • spores
  • To determine which probiotic would work best for which frog, the researchers added the probiotic to the mucus before incubating the fungal spores in the sample. (phys.org)
  • The researchers also found that the survival rate of the fungal spores differed depending on the environmental conditions. (phys.org)
  • But when the researchers increased the temperature at which the fungal spores were incubated in a mucus sample containing the bacteria, the results flipped. (phys.org)
  • Every day we inhale hundreds of fungal spores but these in healthy individuals are efficiently eliminated by specialist immune cells called phagocytes which engulf and kill them. (aspergillus.org.uk)
  • We have discovered that epithelial cells ingest fungal spores and kill them. (aspergillus.org.uk)
  • We are now trying to work out how epithelial cells grab and ingest fungal spores, by using fluorescent fungal mutants and targeted elimination of host proteins. (aspergillus.org.uk)
  • Once we understand this process in detail we can design new therapies to assist a quicker elimination of the dangerous fungal spores we all inhale on a daily basis. (aspergillus.org.uk)
  • patients
  • Dr. Lewis White, Principal Clinical Scientist at NPHS Microbiology Cardiff, commented on the new Fungiplex Candida assay: "Fungal diseases such as invasive candidiasis pose an extremely serious healthcare risk to immunosuppressed patients, especially within the intensive care unit. (bruker.com)
  • Using retrospective analyses covering the period 2001-2010, factors affecting clinical therapeutic cure in patients with cryptococcal meningitis 10 weeks after the start of anti-fungal therapy were identified. (springer.com)
  • Among patients with MRSA bacteremia treated with vancomycin, reduced vancomycin susceptibility and vancomycin tolerance were not associated with mortality after adjusting for patient factors. (biomedcentral.com)
  • farmers
  • Lead TRI investigators Matt Ryan and Dave Wilson explain that the goals of the project are twofold: to gather hard data on the compost tea's effectiveness for stimulating plant growth and suppressing disease, and to educate farmers and extension agents about its potential benefits--and hazards--as an organic material. (rodaleinstitute.org)
  • journal
  • The same method can be used to determine what kind of probiotic skin wash might be most effective at bolstering the frog's defenses without actually exposing the frog to disease, according to a journal article published today in the journal PLOS ONE . (phys.org)
  • highly
  • The research team, led by Woodhams, studied midwife toads, which live in Europe and are highly susceptible to the chytrid fungus , a skin disease that is devastating amphibian populations across the globe. (phys.org)
  • culture
  • As an Altman Graduate Fellow, she works with her mentor as well as undergraduate students to study how culture influences conceptions of disease and how narratives transform individual and shared meanings of health, illness, and aging. (miamioh.edu)
  • range
  • MICRONAUT®-AM is from the product range of recently acquired MERLIN Diagnostika GmbH, a leader in speciality susceptibility testing products across a range of human and veterinary application areas. (bruker.com)
  • The research team also used mucus tests to determine how effective probiotic treatments would be at increasing amphibian defenses against disease in a range of environmental conditions and at a range of life stages. (phys.org)
  • early
  • Generally throughout early mornig dews, white cobweb like fungal threads will be seen on the infected areas. (blogzet.com)
  • human
  • Human African Trypanosomiasis, or sleeping sickness, is a devastating parasitic disease that is fatal if left untreated. (scienceblogs.com)
  • We acknowledge generous financial support from the Wellcome Trust Strategic Award for Medical Mycology and Fungal Immunology , British Mycological Society , the British Society for Medical Mycology , The Microbiology Society , King's College London Dental Institute and the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology .

  • sample
  • A simple sample of the protective mucus layer that coats a frog's skin can now be analyzed to determine how susceptible the frog is to disease, thanks to a technique developed by a researcher at the University of Colorado Boulder. (phys.org)
  • ability
  • There's a lot of excitement right now about compost tea--more and more growers are using it, and there's a lot of anecdotal evidence about its ability to suppress plant diseases,' says Ryan. (rodaleinstitute.org)
  • research
  • A growing number of peer-reviewed research articles have reported on compost's disease-suppressive qualities, but its use continues to be attacked in the mainstream media as a potential source of bacterial contamination in food. (rodaleinstitute.org)
