In vitro and in vivo activities of NS-718, a new lipid nanosphere incorporating amphotericin B, against Aspergillus fumigatus. (1/194)

We evaluated the in vitro and in vivo potencies of a new lipid nanosphere that incorporates amphotericin B (AmB), NS-718, against Aspergillus fumigatus. The in vitro activity of NS-718 (the MIC at which 90% of strains are inhibited [MIC90], 0.25 microgram/ml) against 18 isolates of A. fumigatus was similar to that of deoxycholate AmB (D-AmB; Fungizone; MIC90, 0.25 microgram/ml), but NS-718 was more potent than liposomal AmB (L-AmB; AmBi-some; MIC90, 1.0 microgram/ml). The in vivo efficacy of NS-718 in a rat model of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis was compared with those of D-AmB and L-AmB. A low dose (1 mg/kg of body weight) of L-AmB was ineffective (survival rate, 0%), although equivalent doses of D-AmB and NS-718 were more effective (survival rate, 17%). However, a higher dose of NS-718 (3 mg/kg) was more effective (survival rate, 100%) than equivalent doses of D-AmB and L-AmB (survival rate, 0%). To explain these differences, pharmacokinetic studies showed higher concentrations of AmB in the plasma of rats treated with NS-718 than in the plasma of those treated with D-AmB. Our results suggest that NS-718, a new preparation of AmB, is a promising antifungal agent with activity against pulmonary aspergillosis.  (+info)

Conformational and linear B-cell epitopes of Asp f 2, a major allergen of Aspergillus fumigatus, bind differently to immunoglobulin E antibody in the sera of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis patients. (2/194)

Asp f 2 is a major Aspergillus fumigatus allergen involved in allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. Knowledge of the B-cell epitopes may contribute to the understanding of immunoregulation and immunodiagnosis. To elucidate the immunoglobulin E (IgE) binding epitopes in the linear sequence of Asp f 2, we synthesized decamer peptides spanning the whole molecule of Asp f 2 on derivatized cellulose membranes and evaluated IgE binding in ABPA patient and control sera. Peptides three to five amino acids long were synthesized based on amino acid sequences within the IgE binding regions and evaluated for the specificity of epitope antibody interactions. Nine IgE binding regions were recognized in this protein of 268 amino acid residues. Of the nine epitopes, seven (ATQRRQI, RKYFG, HWR, YTTRR, DHFAD, ALEAYA, and THEGGQ) are present in the hydrophilic regions of Asp f 2. Immunologic evaluation of the three recombinant fragments, Asp f 2A encompassing the N-terminal epitope region, Asp f 2B without N- and C-terminal regions of the protein, and Asp f 2C representing C-terminal epitopes, revealed that either the N- or C-terminal region of the protein is essential for the correct folding and conformation for IgE antibody binding.  (+info)

Zinc-regulated biosynthesis of immunodominant antigens from Aspergillus spp. (3/194)

ASPND1 and ASPF2 are immunodominant antigens from Aspergillus nidulans and A. fumigatus, respectively, that are readily synthesized in infections in the human host, as demonstrated by their reactivity with more than 80% of sera from patients with aspergilloma or allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. We demonstrate here that both antigens are exclusively produced under situations of low bioavailability of free Zn2+. Addition of micromolar concentrations of Zn2+ to the culture medium strongly stimulated Aspergillus growth but totally inhibited ASPND1 or ASPF2 production. This effect was specific, since other divalent metals had no effect. Removal of endogenous Zn2+ by a chelator also stimulated ASPND1 production, and the effect was specifically reversed by Zn2+. These results suggest a possible role of these antigens in the survival of the fungus in the lungs.  (+info)

Immunomodulatory role of C10 chemokine in a murine model of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. (4/194)

The immunomodulatory role of the chemokine C10 was explored in allergic airway responses during experimental allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). The intratracheal delivery of Asperigillus fumigatus Ag into A. fumigatus-sensitized mice resulted in significantly increased levels of C10 within the bronchoalveolar lavage, and these levels peaked at 48 h after A. fumigatus challenge. In addition, C10 levels in BAL samples were greater than 5-fold higher than levels of other chemokines such as monocyte-chemoattractant protein-1, eotaxin, and macrophage-inflammatory protein-1alpha. From in vitro studies, it was evident that major pulmonary sources of C10 may have included alveolar macrophages, lung fibroblasts, and vascular smooth muscle cells. Experimental ABPA was associated with severe peribronchial eosinophilia, bronchial hyperresponsiveness, and augmented IL-13 and IgE levels. The immunoneutralization of C10 with polyclonal anti-C10 antiserum 2 h before the intratracheal A. fumigatus challenge significantly reduced the airway inflammation and hyperresponsiveness in this model of ABPA, but had no effect on IL-10 nor IgE levels. Taken together, these data suggest that C10 has a unique role in the progression of experimental ABPA.  (+info)

Specific IgG subclass antibody pattern to Aspergillus fumigatus in patients with cystic fibrosis with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). (5/194)

BACKGROUND: IgG and IgG subclass antibodies to Aspergillus fumigatus (A fumigatus) were measured in a large population of patients with cystic fibrosis to elucidate a putative antibody pattern specific for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). METHODS: An ELISA technique using water soluble somatic hyphal (WSSH) A fumigatus antigens and subclass specific monoclonal antibodies was used for cross sectional quantification of IgG and IgG1-4 subclass antibody levels in the serum of 238 patients with cystic fibrosis and 107 healthy controls. RESULTS: In patients with cystic fibrosis persistently colonised with A fumigatus the subclass antibody levels were significantly increased compared with patients with cystic fibrosis never or rarely colonised (p < 0.001). The group of patients persistently colonised with A fumigatus with ABPA (+Af+ABPA) had significantly increased levels of IgG antibodies to A fumigatus (Af-IgG) (median 69 ELISA units (EU) versus 31) and of subclasses Af-IgG1 (91 versus 27), Af-IgG2 (143 versus 56), and Af-IgG4 antibodies (72 versus 20), but not of IgG3 (17 versus 15), compared with the colonised patients without ABPA (+Af-ABPA). Patients with cystic fibrosis with no or only rare isolates of A fumigatus without ABPA (-Af-ABPA) also had significantly increased subclass antibody levels (Af-IgG1 9 versus 3, Af-IgG2 28 versus 5, Af-IgG4 16 versus 4; p < 0.001) compared with healthy controls. Low, although detectable, levels of antibodies were demonstrated in healthy controls. ABPA seemed to occur independently of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection. Using diagnostic cut off levels for ABPA, sensitivity and specificity were calculated. The highest specificity was found for IgG4 (88%); sensitivity was between 65% and 73%. The positive predictive values (PPV) were moderate, whereas the negative predictive values (NPV) were high (96% in all subclasses except IgG3 with 94%). PPV increased to 50% if IgG1 as well as IgG2 and IgG4 were included. CONCLUSIONS: In a large number of unselected patients with cystic fibrosis significantly increased levels of Af-specific antibodies belonging to total IgG and all four subclasses were found in all groups of patients compared with healthy controls. In patients persistently colonised with A fumigatus these levels were significantly higher than in non-colonised patients, and the significantly highest levels (with the exception of IgG3) were found in patients with ABPA. Using a sensitive ELISA technique, measurements of IgG and IgG subclass antibodies to A fumigatus might be of importance in the management of ABPA, especially as a screening test to exclude the presence of ABPA; other tests are needed to confirm the diagnosis.  (+info)

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis due to Aspergillus niger without bronchial asthma. (6/194)

A 65-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a dry cough and pulmonary infiltrates. Chest radiograph and CT revealed mucoid impaction and consolidations. Peripheral blood eosinophilia and elevated serum IgE were observed. Aspergillus niger was cultured repeatedly from her sputum, but A. fumigatus was not detected. Immediate skin test and specific IgE (RAST) to Aspergillus antigen were positive. Precipitating antibodies were confirmed against A. niger antigen, but not against A. fumigatus antigen. She had no asthmatic symptoms, and showed no bronchial hyperreactivity to methacholine. Thus, this case was diagnosed as allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) without bronchial asthma due to A. niger, an organism rarely found in ABPA. The administration of prednisone improved the symptoms and corrected the abnormal laboratory findings.  (+info)

Bronchocentric granulomatosis as a first clinical manifestation in an adult patient with p67phox deficiency. (7/194)

We report on a case of adult chronic granulomatous disease which first manifested as a pulmonary mass, and was histologically diagnosed as bronchocentric granulomatosis associated with aspergillosis in a patient with a deficiency of p67phox and a low oxidative response. Antifungal treatment was required for clinical resolution.  (+info)

Determinants of chronic infection with Staphylococcus aureus in patients with bronchiectasis. (8/194)

Staphylococcus aureus is an uncommon pathogen in bronchiectasis not caused by cystic fibrosis (CF). The object of this study was to identify characteristics that cause patients to be prone to infection with S. aureus. The study population consisted of patients with bronchiectasis attending the authors' unit, excluding those with a diagnosis of overt CF. All patients had a high resolution computer tomographic scan (HRCT) of the thorax which demonstrated bronchiectasis. Cases that were currently chronically infected with S. aureus (isolated consecutively on more than two occasions >3 months apart) were identified (n = 12) and compared with 74 control patients who had not been chronically infected with S. aureus. Patients were carefully evaluated to determine the aetiology of their disease. Odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) as measures of the association between disease characteristics and chronic infection with S. aureus were calculated. The results for patients chronically infected by S. aureus demonstrated significant associations with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA; OR = 8.8, 95% CI 1.8-41.9), atypical variants of CF (OR = 12.0, 95% CI 1.8-81.7) or equivocal sweat sodium values (OR = 4.0, 95% CI 1.0-15.3). The associations persisted when the analysis was based on cases (n = 28) in whom S. aureus had ever been isolated from sputum. In the latter analysis there was also a significant association with predominant upper zone disease on HRCT. These results suggest that patients with bronchiectasis in whom S. aureus is isolated from sputum should be carefully evaluated to exclude allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis or atypical cystic fibrosis.  (+info)

Review question We planned to review evidence about the effect of treatments to fight fungal infections which cause allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis in people with cystic fibrosis.. Background Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is an allergic lung reaction to a type of fungus (usually Aspergillus fumigatus) in some people with cystic fibrosis. It causes cough and wheezing and sometimes fever. If left untreated ABPA can lead to chronic lung damage. It is usually treated with a high dose of corticosteroids (also known as steroids). However, it has not been proven that corticosteroids can prevent lung function deteriorating in the long term. Also, long-term use of steroids is linked to some serious side effects. Treating the fungus which causes ABPA may be an alternative to using high doses of steroids to combat the allergic reaction. This is an update of a previously published review.. Search date The evidence is current to: 29 September 2016.. Study characteristics No trials ...
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a condition characterised by an exaggerated response of the immune system (a hypersensitivity response) to the fungus Aspergillus (most commonly Aspergillus fumigatus). It occurs most often in patients with asthma or cystic fibrosis. Aspergillus spores are ubiquitous in soil and are commonly found in the sputum of healthy individuals. A. fumigatus is responsible for a spectrum of lung diseases known as aspergilloses. ABPA causes airway inflammation, leading to bronchiectasis-a condition marked by abnormal dilation of the airways. Left untreated, the immune system and fungal spores can damage sensitive lung tissues and lead to scarring. The exact criteria for the diagnosis of ABPA are not agreed upon. Chest X-rays and CT scans, raised blood levels of IgE and eosinophils, immunological tests for Aspergillus together with sputum staining and sputum cultures can be useful. Treatment consists of corticosteroids and antifungal medications. Almost all ...
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a pulmonary disorder caused by a complex hypersensitivity response to antigens released by the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus. The management of ABPA includes two important aspects - institution of immunosuppressive therapy in the form of glucocorticoids to control the immunologic activity, and close monitoring for detection of relapses. Another possible target is to use antifungal agents to attenuate the fungal burden secondary to the fungal colonization in the airways. Oral corticosteroids are currently the treatment of choice for ABPA associated with bronchial asthma.They not only suppress the immune hyperfunction but are also anti-inflammatory. However, there is no data to guide the dose and duration of glucocorticoids and different regimens of glucocorticoids have been used in literature.Itraconazole, an oral triazole with relatively low toxicity, is active against Aspergillus spp. in vitro and in vivo. The activity of itraconazole against ...

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), a progressive fungal allergic lung disease, is a common complication of asthma or cystic fibrosis. Although ABPA has been recognized since the 1950s, recent research has underscored the importance of Th2 immune deviation and granulocyte activation in its pathogenesis. There is also strong evidence of widespread under-diagnosis due to the complexity and lack of standardization of diagnostic criteria. Treatment has long focused on downregulation of the inflammatory response with prolonged courses of oral glucocorticosteroids, but more recently concerns with steroid toxicity and availability of new treatment modalities has led to trials of oral azoles, inhaled amphotericin, pulse intravenous steroids, and subcutaneously-injected anti-IgE monoclonal antibody omalizumab, all of which show evidence of efficacy and reduced toxicity.

Chaudhary N, Staab JF, Marr KA. PLoS One 2010;5:e9036.. Aspergillus allergens are described as proteins that are recognized in patients with hypersensitivity syndromes such as allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and Aspergillus-induced asthma. However, findings from this study indicate that (at least) some of these proteins are not only allergens, but are also capable of inducing a T-helper 1 (Th1) cytokine response in volunteers without a history of suspected or proven fungal infection or reported allergy or atopy. This indicates that these Asp f proteins are able to induce both protective (Th1) and non-protective (Th2) inflammation. Depending on the hosts status, Aspergillus fumigatus is able to cause several diseases ranging from allergic (e.g. Aspergillus-induced asthma and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis) to invasive (e.g. pulmonary aspergillosis and disseminated disease). A fumigatus conidia enter the body via the air and, if they are not cleared by phagocytic cells, spores ...

Many patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) cough up mucus or have throat cultures that grow a common fungus called Aspergillus. In patients with CF, aspergillus is not known to cause direct damage to the lungs, but some patients respond with an allergic reaction that causes them to wheeze, cough, or have difficulty breathing. This allergic reaction is called ABPA. Current treatment for ABPA includes high dose steroids and an anti-fungal medicine. Treatment with steroids may be problematic for some people due to its side effects on blood sugar levels and the bones. Steroids are medications that decrease inflammation, including prednisone, medrol, dexamethasone and others.. Ongoing research at UPMC on the study Mechanisms of Immune Tolerance in ABPA has studied people with CF and ABPA versus those patients with CF that just grow A. fumigatus (Af) in the sputum, but do not have ABPA. You may have participated in this study. This study has shown that people with CF with the fungus, Af, in their ...
Ten patients were included. At T0, the median number of exacerbations in the year prior to omalizumab was 5,5 [0-13], 80% of patients were treated with oral corticosteroids and none of the patients were controlled. After 6 months of treatment, the annual exacerbation rate was 2 [0-14], oral corticosteroids were stopped in 5/8 (62,5%) of patients and asthma control was achieved in 5/10 (50%) of patients. However, between the 6th and 12th month, 60% of patients stopped omalizumab due to lack of asthma control. Among the 40% of patients who were still being treated with omalizumab at T12 : asthma control was achieved in 100% of cases, the annual exacerbation rate was zero and none of the patients were treated with oral corticosteroids at T6 and T12. ...

In the current study, six out of 139 CF patients, suffering from NTM disease, mainly due to M. abscessus, are described. It was found that ABPA and systemic steroid therapy were associated with this complication. As this is a rare condition, the series of patients with NTM reported in this study is small, and, therefore, the statistical analysis must remain weak at best. Nevertheless, it is believed that this experience underlines an important and challenging clinical aspect in CF.. NTM infection appears to be an emerging disease. A clinical microbiology laboratory in Israel reported that NTM and, in particular, the species M. chelonae (of which M. abscessus was previously considered a subspecies), M. fortuitum and M. simiae are increasing in incidence 19. During 1996-1999, 135 specimens from 9,391 patients cultured positive for NTM. Of these, five patients had M. chelonae. Between 2000 and 2003, 364 out of 9,031 patients were culture positive for NTM (p,0.0001) and, of these, 51 had M. chelonae ...

Question - Have allergic aspergillosis. Would a flare up result in low blood oxygen level?. Ask a Doctor about diagnosis, treatment and medication for Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, Ask an OBGYN, Gynecologic Oncology
Aspergillosis is acquired by inhalation of spores of Aspergillus, a ubiquitous species in the environment. In normal hosts, spore inhalation rarely causes lung disease. Pulmonary aspergillosis covers a wide spectrum of clinical syndromes depending on the interaction between Aspergillus and the host (immune-status, prior bronchopulmonary disease). It runs the gamut from invasive aspergillosis to Aspergillus bronchitis and colonization. Invasive aspergillosis occurs in severely immunocompromised patients, typically with neutropenia. Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis affects patients with chronic structural lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, mycobacterial lung disease, but without significant immunocompromise. Aspergillus bronchitis affects patients with bronchial disease such as bronchiectasis. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis affects patients with bronchial asthma or cystic fibrosis, and is due to an allergic response to Aspergillus. In this review of literature, we discuss
Its important to describe exactly what symptoms you have, as the symptoms of aspergillosis can vary slightly between the different types.. For example, wheezing is more likely to be a symptom of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) or severe asthma with fungal sensitisation (SAFS), while a long-term cough and unexplained weight loss are more likely to be caused by chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA).. Your medical history will also be taken into account, as the different types of aspergillosis are associated with different underlying health problems.. ABPA and SAFS are closely associated with asthma or cystic fibrosis, whereas invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) occurs more often in people with weakened immune systems. ...
The role of tryptophan (Trp17) in immunoreactivity of P1, the diagnostically relevant peptide from a major allergen/antigen of Aspergillus fumigatus, was evaluated by chemically modifying tryptophanyl residue of P1. In BIAcore kinetic studies, unmodified P1 showed a 100-fold higher binding with ABPA (Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis) patients IgG [KD (equilibrium dissociation constant) = 2.74 e−8 ± 0.13 M] than the controls IgG (KD = 2.97 e−6 ± 0.14 M), whereas chemically-modified P1 showed similar binding [KD patients IgG = 3.25 e−7± 0.16 M, KD controls IgG = 3.86 e−7 ± 0.19 M] indicating loss of specific immunoreactivity of P1 on tryptophan modification. Modified P1 showed loss of specific binding to IgE and IgG antibodies of ABPA patients in ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). The study infers that tryptophan residue (Trp17)) is essential for immunoreactivity of P1. ...
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) and allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) are characterized by hyper-responsiveness of the respiratory tract and the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, respectively to Aspergillus species and AFRS causes chronic rhinosinusitis. Herein, we report the first case of sinobronchial allergic mycosis (SAM) syndrome, defined as ABPA with concomitant AFRS, caused by Aspergillus fumigatus patient | 80 years. An 82-year-old male with interstitial pneumonia who returned for follow-up exhibited high-attenuation mucus plug in the right intermediate bronchial trunk, infiltration in the right lung field, and right pleural effusion on regular chest computed tomography (CT). We found unilateral central bronchiectasis in the right upper lobe. Similarly, CT scan of the paranasal sinuses revealed high-attenuation mucus plugs in left ethmoid sinuses. Biopsy specimens from the plugs in the right intermediate bronchial trunk and the left ethmoid sinuses revealed allergic mucin
We have a lovely story that Leslee Alexander did for us as well. This has been posted on social media. Leslees story. I smiled when Jill Fairweather asked us to write a few words on how aspergillosis affects us. I am sure most of us could write a novel on the effects it has had on our lives, before and after being diagnosed. I could write a novel on applying, fighting and winning my personal independence payment (PIP) allowance with this disease alone.. Before I was diagnosed, I thought I had lung cancer. It has been five years since the start of my symptoms and about two and a half years since being positively diagnosed with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) and chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA). Worst part for me was the initial feeling of isolation and loneliness. I didnt know anyone else who had this disease. My GP didnt know anything about it, my friends had never heard of it. After a few months the phone calls to go to different events in my local area began to stop. I ...
The chapter provides an overview on allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). Recombinant DNA technology has allowed for identification and production of many Aspergillus fumigatus allergens that may play a role in pathogenesis and find use in diagnostic testing. A role for the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 in protection against A. fumigatus has been shown in experimental murine ABPA, and a broader role for IL-10 as an anti-inflammatory regulatory cytokine in lung inflammation in both asthma and cystic fibrosis (CF) is likely. A critical immunogenetic feature of ABPA is inheritance and expression of certain major histocompatibility complex (MHC) alleles that act to regulate CD4+ Tcell responses to A. fumigatus. Susceptibility to ABPA appears to be independently increased by mutations in the CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene. Oral glucocorticoids are an effective first-line treatment for ABPA and appear as effective in CF as they are in asthmatic APBA. Serum IgE levels are a
Lung surfactant protein D (SP-D) is a hydrophilic soluble pattern recognition innate immune molecule involved in the clearance of pathogens, apoptotic/necrotic cells, and down-regulation of allergic inflammation. The fragment of SP-D has been shown to be involved in pattern recognition of glycoprotein allergens and inhibit histamine release by sensitised basophils in vitro in response to house dust mite (Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus) and Aspergillus fumigatus allergens. Studies have shown that the therapeutic application of SP-D caused a marked reduction in specific IgE and IgG1 levels, along with peripheral blood eosinophilia and pulmonary infiltration in BALB/c murine model of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). The effect of SP-D on allergic effector cell and allergen induced T, B cell responses are yet to be evaluated in humans. The overall aim of this study is to determine effect of SP-D on grass pollen allergen induced basophil activation and histamine release. Furthermore, ...

If allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is suspected, youll have a skin prick test. You may be referred to a specialist at an allergy clinic for the test.. Your skin will be pricked with a needle that contains a small amount of aspergillus mould. If youre allergic, the area of skin where the needle was inserted will come up in a hard red bump.. Blood tests are also used to check for immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies, which will be produced by your immune system if youre allergic to the aspergillus mould. Antibodies are special proteins that help fight infections and are markers of allergy.. You may also have a computerised tomography (CT) scan to check whether theres a build-up of mucus in your lungs or bronchiectasis, which is common in ABPA.. As well as having severe asthma, someone with severe asthma with fungal sensitisation (SAFS) will also be sensitised (allergic) to one or more types of fungi. As with ABPA, this can be diagnosed using a skin prick test, where your skin is ...

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a common but frequently misdiagnosed clinical condition. It is usually diagnosed in patients with a long standing history of asthma. Patients with ABPA can have diverse radiological manifestations. Very rarely, lung masses have been reported. We hereby report a case of ABPA in whom a large symptomatic lung mass was the presenting manifestation leading to consideration of lung cancer as a differential diagnosis. The establishment of ABPA as the underlying diagnosis led to conservative medical treatment which was followed by complete resolution of the mass like opacity. The present case highlights that ABPA should be considered as a differential diagnosis whenever encountering a patient with lung mass and history of asthma ...
Background Itraconazole (ITZ) is an alternative to steroids in the treatment of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) but therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is warranted due to erratic absorption and early relapse.. Aim To correlate serum ITZ levels with clinical outcomes in ABPA.. Methods ITZ capsules 400mg/day for 6 months were administered as monotherapy to 30 consecutive patients in stage 4/5 of ABPA between Jan13 to Jun13. High-performance liquid chromatography was done on serum samples collected after 2-4 weeks to measure concentrations of ITZ and its active metabolite hydroxy-ITZ (OHITZ); ITZ levels of ,2mg/L were considered adequate. Total and Aspergillus species specific IgE, leucocyte count (TLC), eosinophil count (AEC) and precipitins were recorded before and thereafter. Any relapse was noted till 2 years.. Results Mean serum concentration of ITZ and OHITZ was 0.79±0.2 and 1.2±0.3mg/L respectively. Total IgE (9.9±1.4 vs 6.5±1.2×103IU/mL), specific IgE (42.98±3.9 vs ...
To gain insight into aberrant cytokine regulation in cystic fibrosis (CF), we compared the phenotypic manifestations of allergen challenge in gut-corrected CFTR-deficient mice with background-matched C57Bl6 (B6) mice. Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) antigen was used to mimic allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, a peculiar hyper-IgE syndrome with a high prevalence in CF patients. CFTR-/-, C57BL/6 and FVB/NJ mice were sensitized with Af antigen by serial intraperitoneal injections. Control mice were mock sensitized with PBS. Challenges were performed by inhalation of Af antigen aerosol. After Af antigen challenge, histologic analysis showed goblet cell hyperplasia and lymphocytic infiltration in both strains. However, total serum IgE levels were markedly elevated in CF mice. Sensitized CF mice showed a five-fold greater IgE response to sensitization as compared with B6- and FVB-sensitized controls. Additional littermate controls to fully normalize for B6-FVB admixture in the strain background confirmed the
Under the QIDP program, which is designed to speed the development of novel drugs against important pathogens, Pulmatrix will receive five years of additional market exclusivity for Pulmazole (PUR1900). Pulmatrix had previously received QIDP status as well as orphan drug designation from the FDA for Pulmazole (PUR1900) to treat fungal infections in the airways of patients with cystic fibrosis, a rare genetic disease estimated to affect 75,000-100,000 patients worldwide. This new QIDP status expands the eligible ABPA population to include asthmatic patients; 1.5% of adult asthmatics suffer from ABPA. In its letter to Pulmatrix, the FDA wrote: We have reviewed your request and conclude that it meets the criteria for QIDP. Therefore we are designating your Itraconazole Inhalation Powder (PUR1900) product for inhalation use as a QIDP for…treatment of pulmonary Aspergillus infections in patients with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA).. This second QIDP designation is a significant ...
Hui Zoi et al. Correlation between fungal sIgE and bronchial asthma severity. Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine 2013;6:537-41.. The World Health Organization (WHO) has officially recognized 120 allergens from fungi (molds). Several hundred additional fungal proteins believed to be allergenic (allergy causing) have also been described. Fungal allergens most commonly trigger type I immediate type hypersensitivity reactions such as asthma, rhinitis and anaphylaxis. Fungal allergens can also trigger type III hypersensitivity reactions (such as hypersensitivity pneumonitis) and type IV hypersensitivity reactions (allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis [ABPA] and hypersensitivity pneumonitis). ...
In some patients a so-called allergic bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) delvelops. Hereby it is an allergic reaction of the patient to the colonization with the fungus. The involved patients are often apparent with a sudden increased cough, a narrowing of the bronchi and an obvious worsening of the lung function. The laboratory investigation shows an strong increase of the Immunoglobulin E and so-called precipitins which give a hint to the allergic reaction. In the thorax x-ray round shadows can be seen, which do often change the localization rapidly when doing a control ...

Rates of fatal, non-fatal injuries and self-reported work-related illness were found to be higher in the waste and recycling sector than in UK industry as a whole. There was an increased prevalence of respiratory, gastro-intestinal and skin complaints in workers exposed to compost relative to controls. They may also be at increased risk of extrinsic allergic alveolitis, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, occupational asthma and abnormalities of lung function. Workers involved with the recycling of batteries and cables may be at risk of lead poisoning and exposure to other heavy metals. There were case reports of mercury poisoning from the recycling of fluorescent lights. Cases of occupational asthma have been reported in association with wood and paper recycling. The recycling of e-waste may cause exposure to heavy metals and organic pollutants, such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers, dioxins and polyaromatic hydrocarbons, which have been associated with damage to DNA and adverse neonatal ...

Infection rates decreased over time in all arms. Infections were the most commonly reported AEs (TCZ-SC 63.2%, TCZ-IV 57.8%, TCZ-IV-SC 17.7%, TCZ-SC-IV 56.3%) and led to withdrawal in 17 patients (2.7%) in the TCZ-SC arm, 12 (1.9%) in the TCZ-IV arm, 8 (4.3%) in the TCZ-IV-SC arm and 0 in the TCZ-SC-IV arm.. SAE rates were generally stable, consistent over 97 weeks, and comparable between the TCZ-SC and TCZ-IV arms. Serious infection rates were maintained over time. The rate of serious infections per 100 PY in the TCZ-IV-SC arm was higher (6.65 (95% CI 3.87 to 10.64)) than in the TCZ-IV arm (3.92 (95% CI 2.68 to 5.53)); however, the 95% CIs overlapped. The most common serious infections occurring in ≥2 patients in the TCZ-SC, TCZ-IV and TCZ-IV-SC arms were cellulitis and pneumonia. Only one serious infection (diverticulitis) was reported in the TCZ-SC-IV arm. Opportunistic infection rates were consistent over time and were atypical pneumonia (patient withdrawn), bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, ...
Our diagnosis was allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) including asthmatic responses as well as hypersensitivity pneumonitis (extrinsic allergic alveolitis) due to exposure to moldy household waste. A growing number of persons engaged in garbage collection and handling are exposed and at risk to develop sensitization to fungi due to exposure to dust of biodegradable waste. Further studies are necessary to show if separate collection of biodegradable waste increases the health risks due to exposure to bacteria and fungi in comparison to waste collection without separation. Am. J. Ind. Med. 37:438-442, 2000 Plain text: Background Separate collection of biodegradable garbage and recyclable waste is expected to become mandatory in some western countries. A growing number of persons engaged in garbage collection and separation might become endangered by high loads of bacteria and fungi.
