Blastomycosis acquired occupationally during prairie dog relocation--Colorado, 1998. (1/211)

On August 31, 1998, two suspected cases of fungal pneumonia were reported to the Boulder County (Colorado) Health Department (BCHD). Both patients were immunocompetent, otherwise healthy adults working for the City of Boulder Open Space (CBOS) program on a prairie dog relocation project. This report summarizes the epidemiologic investigation by BCHD, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and CDC; the findings indicate that these two persons acquired blastomycosis in Colorado, which is outside the area where the disease is endemic.  (+info)

Targeted gene disruption reveals an adhesin indispensable for pathogenicity of Blastomyces dermatitidis. (2/211)

Systemic fungal infections are becoming more common and difficult to treat, yet the pathogenesis of these infectious diseases remains poorly understood. In many cases, pathogenicity can be attributed to the ability of the fungi to adhere to target tissues, but the lack of tractable genetic systems has limited progress in understanding and interfering with the offending fungal products. In Blastomyces dermatitidis, the agent of blastomycosis, a respiratory and disseminated mycosis of people and animals worldwide, expression of the putative adhesin encoded by the WI-1 gene was investigated as a possible virulence factor. DNA-mediated gene transfer was used to disrupt the WI-1 locus by allelic replacement, resulting in impaired binding and entry of yeasts into macrophages, loss of adherence to lung tissue, and abolishment of virulence in mice; each of these properties was fully restored after reconstitution of WI-1 by means of gene transfer. These findings establish the pivotal role of WI-1 in adherence and virulence of B. dermatitidis yeasts. To our knowledge, they offer the first example of a genetically proven virulence determinant among systemic dimorphic fungi, and underscore the value of reverse genetics for studies of pathogenesis in these organisms.  (+info)

Thoracic blastomycosis and empyema. (3/211)

Blastomycosis is endemic in river valley areas of the southeastern and Midwestern United States. Pulmonary manifestations include chronic cough and pleuritic pain. Radiographic appearance of the infection can mimic bronchogenic lung carcinoma. Pleural effusion is rarely associated with this pulmonary infection, and empyema has not been previously reported. We report a case of pulmonary and pleural Blastomyces dermatitidis infection presenting as empyema thoracis. Diagnosis and treatment were attained with video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) pleural and lung biopsy and debridement.  (+info)

Disseminated blastomycosis in a rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta). (4/211)

An 8-year-old male rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) died following a 6-day illness consisting of progressive depression, anorexia, labored abdominal breathing, coughing, and tachypnea. Gross necropsy findings included severe multifocal (miliary) granulomatous pneumonia, granulomatous splenitis, and multifocal cerebral abscesses. Histologic examination revealed 10-15-microm broad-based budding organisms within pyogranulomatous inflammatory lesions in the lung, tracheobronchial lymph node, brain, spleen, and liver. The distribution of extrapulmonary lesions was intermediate between that described for dogs and that described for humans. These findings were consistent with blastomycosis, which is previously unreported in nonhuman primates.  (+info)

T-Cell epitopes and human leukocyte antigen restriction elements of an immunodominant antigen of Blastomyces dermatitidis. (5/211)

Humans infected with the dimorphic fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis develop strong T-lymphocyte responses to WI-1, an immunodominant antigen that has been shown to elicit protective immunity in mice. In the present study, the T-cell epitopes of WI-1 and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) restricting elements that display them were investigated. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from 37 patients with a confirmed history of blastomycosis were tested for a response to WI-1 in primary proliferation assays; PBMC from 35 (95%) responded. Six patients whose PBMC proliferated strongly in response to WI-1 (defined as a stimulation index greater than 50) were tested further for responses to subcloned, recombinant fragments of the antigen. These patients responded chiefly to sequences within the N terminus and the 25-amino-acid tandem repeat. Cloned CD4(+) T cells from an infected individual were used to delineate more precisely the peptide epitopes in the fragments and HLA restricting elements that present them. A majority of the T-cell clones recognized an epitope spanning amino acids 149 to 172 within the N terminus, displayed by HLA-DR 15. A minority of the clones, which have been shown to perform a cytolytic function in vitro, recognized an epitope in the tandem repeat displayed by HLA-DPw4, an uncommon restricting element. Tandem repeat epitopes required display by the beta chain of DPw4 heterodimers. Thus, human T cells with different functions in vitro also recognize distinct regions of WI-1, raising the possibility that HLA restricting elements that present them could modulate immunity during blastomycosis by selection and display of WI-1 peptides.  (+info)

Molecular epidemiology of Blastomyces dermatitidis. (6/211)

The inhalation of conidia of Blastomyces dermatitidis, a fungus found in soil, causes disease in humans and animals. We studied the genetic diversity of this pathogen by extracting DNA yeasts and analyzing them with a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based typing system we developed, which used restriction fragment analysis of amplicons from the regions between the rDNA repeats and allowed us to class isolates into 3 major groups. Strains were further differentiated by use of PCR fingerprinting with 3 different primers. Fifty-nine isolates collected over 35 years from 15 regions (United States, India, Africa, Canada) were analyzed. Genotypic groups A, B, and C contained 17, 23, and 19 isolates, which were divided into 5, 15, and 12 types, respectively. All 16 isolates from North America in group A were from the upper midwestern United States or Canada, whereas 0 of 20 isolates from the southeastern United States were in group A. Studies of the largest collection from 1 locale (Eagle River, WI), revealed that the soil isolates studied were not responsible for the majority of cases in this outbreak, as previously proposed, and that >1 strain was present in the environment and in patients. Overall, these results provide a tool for the epidemiological study of blastomycosis and illuminate the genetic and geographic diversity of this important pathogen.  (+info)

Cell wall biogenesis of Blastomyces dermatitidis. Evidence for a novel mechanism of cell surface localization of a virulence-associated adhesin via extracellular release and reassociation with cell wall chitin. (7/211)

Pathogenic yeast of Blastomyces dermatitidis express a surface protein adhesin, WI-1. Due to the crucial role of WI-1 in adherence and disease pathogenesis, we investigated how the protein localizes to the surface of B. dermatitidis. WI-1 released extracellularly by wild-type yeast coated the surfaces of co-cultured knockout yeast within 3 h of incubation, implying that secreted WI-1 provides a pathway for loading the protein onto the yeast cell wall. In radioligand binding assays, purified WI-1 bound saturably, specifically, and with high affinity (K(d) = 8.3 x 10(-9)) to the cell surface of knockout yeast devoid of WI-1. WI-1 added exogenously, in vitro, to knockout yeast was indistinguishable from native cell surface WI-1 by fluorescence staining and restored adhesivity to the knockout yeast in macrophage binding and phagocytosis assays. Analysis of interactions between WI-1 and elements of the yeast cell wall identified chitin as the anchor point for WI-1. This interaction was shown to hinge on the 24-amino acid tandem repeat sequence of WI-1. Efforts to extract surface WI-1 from the yeast demonstrated that it is fastened to the wall by non-covalent interactions and covalent links between cysteine residues. We conclude that the yeast cell surface adhesin WI-1 localizes to the cell wall, in part, through extracellular release followed by high affinity binding back onto exposed chitin fibrils. These findings point to a novel pathway of cell wall biogenesis in yeast and an unanticipated role for chitin in anchoring and displaying a surface adhesin and virulence determinant.  (+info)

Expanding epidemiology of blastomycosis: clinical features and investigation of 2 cases in Colorado. (8/211)

On the basis of case reports of blastomycosis, Blastomyces dermatitidis is widely accepted to be endemic in the central United States in and around the Ohio and Mississippi River Valleys. Blastomycosis also occurs in parts of Canada and in the southeastern United States. However, there has been no large-scale skin testing, and the environmental range of B. dermatitidis may have been underestimated. We describe 2 immunocompetent patients with blastomycosis acquired while working in the Front Range region of the Rocky Mountains. The patients were coworkers engaged in a prairie dog relocation project. In the course of this work, they had extensive contact with contaminated soil. Significantly above-average rainfall before the exposure may have contributed to favorable conditions for sporulation of the fungus.  (+info)

The sentence should read: "Although this patient seemed to have a clinical response to ketoconazole from a pulmonary standpoint, progression to osteomyelitis did occur during the 9 ...
The favored substrate of Blastomyces dermatitidis appears to be material with a high organic content, with the assumption frequently being made that it, too, must grow within the soil. Developing an understanding of the functions and regulation of such factors is integral to understanding the pathogenesis of disease and could serve as the foundation for innovative approaches to the treatment of fungal infections. The comparison of wild-type strains with strains lacking specific yeast-phase characteristics requires reliable, precise methods of genetic manipulation. Investigation of pathogenesis in B. dermatitidis has required the adaptation of a wide variety of molecular biology tools to this task. The indispensable role of BAD1 in virulence was highlighted through the agency of several molecular genetic tools newly available for use in studies of B. dermatitidis. Cellular immunity is critical in acquired resistance to B. dermatitidis. Mice immunized with either viable or merthiolate-killed yeast

Systemic Mycoses By Luke D. Peterson, DVM, MS Fungi are a broad category of microorganisms that typically occur in nature as either a mold or yeast form. Many are environmentally beneficial but there are a handful that poses great risk to both dogs and humans. This two part series will focus on the fungi Blastomyces dermatitidis and Histoplasma capsulatum which are found in the environment in most of the eastern half of the United States. The incidence of either of these diseases is relatively lower than that of other infectious diseases such as Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis, or Lyme disease. However, knowledge of these.... ...
The principal advantage of amphotericin B (AmB) over other antifungal compounds is the very broad spectrum of fungicidal activity. AmB is effective against a large range of organisms, including the majority of human pathogens and opportunistic pathogens - most Candida spp., Aspergillus ~fumigatus, Blastomyces dermatitidis, Coccidioides immitis, Cryptococcus neoformans, Histoplasma capsulatum, and Faracoccidioides brasiliensis. However, it is poorly active against Fusarium, certain Aspergillus and Trichosporon spp. Although the incidence of treatment emergent resistance is low, resistant strains of Cundida lusitaniae and C. tropicalis have occasionally been isolated.According to the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) guidelines for the management of invasive fungal infections, amphotericin B deoxycholate (AmBd) remains the drug of choice for the treatment of aspergillosis, with an overall response rate ranging from 14% to 83% (mean 37%). It is commonly believed that AmBd should be ...
A comparative study was made to determine whether young mice predisposed to a high incidence of spontaneous leukemia displayed a distinctive response to infection which could be related to either a hyperactivity of their reticuloendothelial system (RES) or, conversely, some immunologic deficiency. The relative susceptibility to experimental infection of young mice (7-10 weeks old) of "leukemic" strains (AKR and C58) was compared with "low-leukemic" strains (C57BL/6, Swiss, BALB). Test agents included: Candida albicans, Blastomyces dermatitidis, Histoplasma capsulatum, Sporotrichum Schenckii, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Salmonella typhosa Ty2. When the dose levels of mycotic agents were carefully adjusted, it was possible to demonstrate marked differences in the response of male and female mice of the same strain to infection. Relative differences in the susceptibility of diverse inbred strains to mycotic infection were pronounced. Generally, predisposition to leukemia failed to correlate with ...

A skin lesion of blastomycosis is a symptom of an infection with the fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis. The skin becomes infected as the fungus spreads throughout the body. Another form of blastomycosis is only on the skin and usually gets better on its own with time. This article deals with the more widespread form of the infection.
Innate immunity plays an important role for fungal recognition and initiation of fungicidal activity. We hypothesize that subtle differences in different molecules of innate immunity may contribute to either the predisposition or clinical course of infection with Blastomycosis dermatitidis.

Blastomycosis may present with fever, pain in the chest and production of sputum. Blastomycosis is caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis.
Blastomycosis is a fungal systemic infection rarely found in cats, being more common in dogs and humans. The fact that this infection is systemic means that, once the fungus has infested the body, many organs become affected. The fungus first reaches the lungs as spores and then changes its form to yeast and travels to other organs. Most affected by Blastomyces dermatididis are the lungs and the eyes. The skin, bones and the nervous systems can also be affected. Blastomyces dermatididis lives in sandy, acidic areas, near water. Animals that live next to forests or lakes have a higher risk of contracting this fungus.. ...

Care must be taken to test properly for this condition, since it is commonly misdiagnosed, which can lead to permanent or fatal damage. It may be mistaken for cancer and mistreated, or it may be mistaken for a lung infection of bacterial origin and treated with antibiotics, which puts your cat at greater risk. You will want to ask your veterinarian to test for fungal infection if your cat has been in an environment where the blastomyces fungus might have been present at any time in the six weeks previous to the onset of symptoms.. The best methods for diagnosing blastomycosis is through examination of the cells in the lymph nodes, an analysis of fluid drained from skin lesions, a tracheal (windpipe) wash for collecting tracheal fluids, and an examination of lung tissues.

Blastomycosis is a common zoonotic fungal infection in endemic areas, like border of the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, the Mississippi River and Ohio River. Human infection is common in those areas, and occurs when airborne conidia are inhaled from the soil. If the contacted persons immunity fights against the fungus, it can be contained, but if not, the dimorphic fungus develops into the yeast form and the yeast forms migrate to other sites through blood and lymphatic system. Lungs are the most common initially affected organ ...
Therapy for blastomycosis is determined by the severity of the clinical presentation and consideration of the toxicities of the antifungal agent. There are no randomized, blinded trials comparing antifungal agents, and there are limited data available on the treatment of blastomycosis in patients infected with HIV. Typically pneumonia is self-limited to 1-2 weeks and does not require therapy. If the pneumonia persists or the patient develops respiratory insufficiency or pleural disease, treatment with itraconazole 200-400 mg/day orally is recommended.(2) Amphotericin B, up to 2.5 g, is recommended in life-threatening systemic disease, CNS disease, and in patients with immune suppression, including AIDS. Ketoconazole or fluconazole 400-800 mg/day for at least 6 months is effective alternative therapy for non-life-threatening disease in immunocompetent individuals with blastomycosis.(2) In a retrospective study of 326 patients with blastomycosis, those receiving amphotericin B had a cure rate of ...

Blastomycosis is a potentially fatal fungal infection endemic to parts of North America. We used national multiple-cause-of-death data and census population estimates for 1990-2010 to calculate age-adjusted mortality rates and rate ratios (RRs). We modeled trends over time using Poisson regression. Death occurred more often among older persons (RR 2.11, 95% confidence limit [CL] 1.76, 2.53 for those 75-84 years of age vs. 55-64 years), men (RR 2.43, 95% CL 2.19, 2.70), Native Americans (RR 4.13, 95% CL 3.86, 4.42 vs. whites), and blacks (RR 1.86, 95% CL 1.73, 2.01 vs. whites), in notably younger persons of Asian origin (mean = 41.6 years vs. 64.2 years for whites); and in the South (RR 18.15, 95% CL 11.63, 28.34 vs. West) and Midwest (RR 23.10, 95% CL14.78, 36.12 vs. West). In regions where blastomycosis is endemic, we recommend that the diagnosis be considered in patients with pulmonary disease and that it be a reportable disease ...

Morphological transitions in Wangiella dermatitidis, a causative agent of human phaeohyphomycosis, influence virulence processes in this polymorphic fungus. My project first involved the cloning and characterizion of the β(1→3) glucan synthase gene WdFKS1, which encodes the enzymes catalytic subunit, followed by cloning and characterizing the WdRHO1 gene, which encodes its regulatory subunit. To better understand the Rho-type GTPase-mediated regulation of cell polarity and its role in fungal morphological transitions, a homologue of WdRAC1 from a W. dermatitidis was subsequently identified by degenerate PCR and gene walking. Gene deletions of WdFKS1 and WdRHO1 in haploid W. dermatitidis were lethal, whereas the deletion of WdRAC1 was not. RNA interference on WdFKS1 mRNA expression resulted in incomplete septa and damaged cell wall integrity, as well as slow growth rate in W. dermatitidis. Overexpression studies, after site-specific integrations of WdRHO1 and WdRAC1 alleles under control of ...

North American blastomycosis is a dimorphic fungal infection which can cause pulmonary disease and cutaneous deep fungal infections. The infectious agent, Blastomyces dermatitidis takes the form of a mold below 30o C and exists as 7-15 mm yeast with a thick, refractile cell wall, which stains with mucicarmine, above 35o C.1,3-4. Endemic to the Mississippi, St. Lawrence, and Ohio River valleys and regions surrounding the Great Lakes, blastomycosis has an annual incidence of 40/100,000 in the United States with risk factors including residence near waterways or exposure to decaying wood.4 Unlike opportunistic fungal infections, blastomycosis is no more likely to infect immunocompromised patients, though infection in an immunocompromised patient tends to be more severe with disseminated infection.3-4. CLINICAL ...
Blastomycosis is a systemic disease which is caused by the fungus, Blastomyces dermatitidis. This fungal infection primarily affects dogs and humans. In humans, the disease is called "Chicago Disease", "Gilchrist Disease" or "Mycosis".. The primary mode of transmission of Blastomycosis is through inhalation of the fungal spores. The fungus abounds in the environment-in bodies of water and in the soil-thus most infections occur in dogs which spend a considerable amount of time outdoors. It has been observed that there is a high incidence of Blastomycosis in intact male dogs and large breed dogs. The disease has also been observed to commonly occur in dogs between the ages of 1-5 years old. Certain breeds of dogs are predisposed to the infection. These dog breeds include Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Doberman Pinschers, Coonhounds, Pointers, Cocker Spaniels, and Weimaraners.. Once the spores enter the dogs airways, it stays in the lungs where the infection commences. As the organism ...

INTRODUCTION. It is the purpose of this paper briefly to review the pertinent literature on the subject of blastomycosis and to report another proved case of systemic disease with involvement of the meninges. Although blastomycosis is a rather uncommon disease, it is nevertheless a very important clinical entity when it does occur, since the systemic variety usually terminates fatally. Both the systemic and cutaneous forms of the infection can successfully mimic myriad other diseases frequently encountered in the practice of medicine. Therefore, physicians in general should be familiar with the various clinical manifestations of this disease in order to establish ...
Fluconazole, a bis-triazole with activity similar to that of ketoconazole, is water-soluble and can be given both orally and intravenously. Absorption of the medication after oral administration is not pH-dependent. It penetrates well into the cerebrospinal fluid and eye. The medication has been shown to be effective primarily in the treatment of Candida, Cryptococcus, and Blastomyces infections. Candida albicans, C tropicalis, and C parapsilosus are usually sensitive to fluconazole, but many other species of Candida (C krusei, C glabrata, etc) are often resistant. Fluconazole-resistant strains of C albicans primarily have been observed in patients receiving antecedent fluconazole therapy. The medication is inactive against Aspergillus, Mucor, and Pseudallescheria. Fluconazole is effective in oropharyngeal candidiasis and candidal esophagitis. It is as effective or more effective than vaginal creams and suppositories in vaginal candidiasis; a single oral dose of fluconazole 150 mg is 80-90% ...

The fungal pathogen Paracoccidioides brasiliensis produces a melanin-like pigment in the presence of l-DOPA in vitro. We investigated whether melanization affected yeast uptake by alveolar and peritoneal macrophages, the intracellular resistance of fungal cells and their susceptibility to antifungal drugs. The interactions of melanized and nonmelanized P. brasiliensis with murine primary macrophages and J774.16 and MH-S macrophage-like cell lines were investigated. Melanized yeast cells were poorly phagocytosed by the cells even in the presence of complement. Melanization caused significant interference with the binding of cell wall components to lectin receptors on macrophages. Melanized cells were also more resistant than nonmelanized cells to the antifungal activity of murine macrophages. No difference in the susceptibilities of melanized and nonmelanized P. brasiliensis to antifungal drugs was observed using the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method. However killing assays showed ...
Author Summary Systemic fungal infections have emerged as a public health problem, especially for patients with suppressed immunity. At present, there are no vaccines against fungi, partly because it is hard to elicit strong immunity in immune suppressed patients. We have found however that residual elements of T cell immunity can be harnessed by vaccination even in immune suppressed hosts. We show here that immune suppressed mice lacking T helper cells can still be vaccinated successfully against lethal fungal pneumonia. A population of T cytotoxic IL-17-producing cells (Tc17 cells) is instrumental and indispensible in vaccine protection. We describe here mechanisms that explain how these cells are induced to mature in Tc17 cells, persist for long periods in the body providing

Ketoconazole is effective only against fungal or yeast organisms. These fungi are the ones that cause skin infections (dermatophytes) commonly known as ringworm and toenail infections. However, the drug is also effective for some of the more serious fungal infections, such as blastomycosis, coccidoidomycosis and cryptococcosis. These infections can affect the skin, lymph nodes, eyes, bone and respiratory tract (lungs ...
I researched everything I could about Blastomycosis. I learned that the odds were low that Malachy had succumbed to this fungal disease but began planning to remove all ten yards of the mulch. Did we unknowingly cause our sweet boy to become ill? Was Madeline going to succumb to this disease as well? The potential for serious illness in considerably less serious in humans but I began to look for signs that Eamon and Emma might become ill. The fact that they developed coughs that progressed in severity (oddly enough) shortly after Malachy passed caused me additional concern and worry. Their coughs required a visit to the pediatricians office. The nurse practitioner quickly diagnosed them, not with Blasto, but with easily treatable type of walking pneumonia. (Antibiotics quickly resolved their coughing issue and they were back to good form in a day, very thankfully). After a conversation from Dr. F, the U of M internal medicine veterinarian, I realized all we could now was to wait for the results ...

Results: In the present study, the resulting MIC90s for all strains (n = 81) were as follows, in increasing order: posaconazole, 0.125 μg ml-1; itraconazole, 0.25 μg ml-1; voriconazole, 0.5 μg ml-1; amphotericin B, 0.5 μg ml-1; Isavuconazole, 1 μg ml-1; caspofungin, 8 μg ml-1 anidulafungin, 8 μg ml-1 and fluconazole, 16 μg ml-1, without any significant differences in the pattern of susceptibility between environmental and clinical strains (P , 0.05) and genotypes A and B (P , 0.05). The difference in the MIC90s between the two groups of isolates did not differ by more than one dilution. Discussion: Therefore, the present study based on in vitro activity showed that posaconazole and itraconazole might have a potent activity with a best choice of alternative to amphotericin B, for E. dermatitidis cerebral phaeohyphomycosis. In addition, the un-marketing agent Isavuconazole, which is also available as an intravenous preparation, has adequate activity against the latter agent. However, their ...
African histoplasmosis caused by Histoplasma capsulatum var. duboisii is an invasive fungal infection endemic in central and west Africa. Most of its ecology and pathogenesis remain unknown. H. capsulatum var. capsulatum is an AIDS-defining opportunistic infection in HIV-infected patients who are living in or have traveled to histoplasmosis-endemic areas. In contrast, reports concerning African histoplasmosis during HIV infection are rare, although both pathogens coexist in those regions. We report 3 cases of imported African histoplasmosis diagnosed in France in HIV-infected patients and a literature review on similar cases ...

Does anyone have a link that proves that vaccine immunity does in fact wane over time. I read an article the other day (I believe it was from the Vancouver Sun) that talked about it. I can not find it of course. I need it to show someone that the vaccines do not provide life long immunity. (Basically proving that herd immunity is garbage, as most adults have not been vaccinated since childhood). Thanks so much ladies
It did not matter that the science shows measles vaccine immunity is not lifelong and wanes, 29 30 31 32 just like pertussis vaccine immunity is temporary and wanes, 33 34 35 or that it is illogical to put all the blame for measles at Disneyland on 1.8% of children attending school with vaccine exemptions 36 37 when 95% of children entering kindergarten have gotten two MMR shots 38 39 and only 1% of children under age three are unvaccinated. 40 With a grand total of 170 measles cases reported in 17 states by March 2015, compared to 644 cases reported in 27 states last year, 41 and with 42% of the California-related cases documented to be in unvaccinated persons, while 13% of cases were vaccinated, 42 there is no justification for gutting vaccine exemptions in state public health laws ...
The long-term goal of our research is to understand how the fungal pathogen Histoplasma capsulatum causes disease. H. capsulatum is a highly virulent pathogen that causes significant morbidity in both immunocompromised and immunocompetent individuals, with approximately 500,000 Histoplasma infections estimated to occur every year in the U.S. H. capsulatum is a pathogen of macrophages, which phagocytose microbes and digest them via an arsenal of microbicidal mechanisms. In contrast to most microbes, H. capsulatum replicates to high levels in the macrophage phagosome. Colonization of the macrophage is followed by host-cell death and release of live yeast cells, but the mechanism that triggers host-cell death is unknown. We have determined that the previously identified Histoplasma factor Cbp1 is dispensable for high intracellular fungal burden, but required for host-cell lysis. Additionally, our preliminary studies uncovered that Cbp1 is required to induce transcription of a specific and limited ...

The problem of thermal protection is explored for two idiosyncratic reactive systems, namely a sacrificial heat-sink material and an intumescent system where a dynamically evolving insulation layer is produced from an initially thin coating. Relatively simple mathematical models of both systems are proposed that encompass the important physical characteristics of each situation and these models are analysed using a mixture of numerical and analytical techniques. Important dimensionless parameter groups are identified and domains of parameter space where thermal performance is particularly good- or particularly bad- are identified.

I do not attribute this entirely to the raw food. Renal failure progresses differently in every cat, and it could simply be that she had the fortune to get the long-term variety. At the same time, though, its hard not to believe that a diet of easily-synthesized protein, minimal carbohydrates, and plenty of water (in the form of meat and canned food) has nothing to do with her good health. I realize that the disease is progressive--that eventually we will have to give her more intensive care, along the lines of subcutaneous fluids and medications, and may even have to make that hardest of decisions concerning a rainbow bridge--but for now her renal failure seems to have been beaten into a sort of remission ...

Histoplasma was initially described from a lesion in a horse by Rivolta in 1873, who named the organism Cryptococcus farciminosum. In 1905, Samuel Darling noted the presence of intracellular organisms in many tissues, including the lungs, of a patient suspected of succumbing to miliary tuberculosis (Darling 1906). Darling named the organism Histoplasma capsulatum , because it appeared to be an encapsulated protozoan-like organism. In 1912, mycologist Henrique da Rocha-Lima reviewed Darlings slides and noted the cytological similarities between Darlings Histoplasma organism and Cryptococcus farciminosum. Cryptococcus farciminosum was reclassified as Histoplasma farciminosum in 1934, and in 1985 it was again reclassified as a variant of Histoplasma capsulatum (var. farciminosum ) (Weeks et al. 1985).. William De Monbreun cultured the organism from the blood of a child suffering from an unexplained febrile disease in 1934, and demonstrated it to be a dimorphic fungus (De Monbreun 1934). De ...

The major aim of this study was to evaluate the possible role of NK cells in the initial immunological response against P. brasiliensis. Among the few studies about this issue, the study carried out by Peraçoli et al. (13) showed more NK cells in the peripheral blood of PCM patients, although exhibiting a diminished cytotoxic activity. Our data partially confirm these data, given that we observed that NK cells from patients with active disease did exhibit a decreased cytotoxic response against target cells. In relation to the number of CD56+ cells, we found no differences between PCM patients and healthy individuals. Additionally, we observed that after the treatment, the cytotoxic capability of NK cells from patients was similar to that observed in the control group. These data indicate that during the development of the disease, it is possible that the acquired immunological response interfere with the activation of NK cells. PCM patients with active disease are characterized by the ...

What are Blastomycosis, Cryptococcosis, Coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever), Histoplasmosis, Lyme Disease and can you explain them to me?
From the article: Similar to immunity after natural measles infection, live measles vaccine-induced immunity has been thought to be lifelong. Vaccinees who subsequently develop measles have been considered primary vaccine failures, defined as the failure of the initial vaccination to elicit an appropriate immune response. Primary vaccine failures are believed to be caused by (1) interference by maternal antibody when vaccination occurs at a young age, (2) technical problems, such as improper vaccine storage or administration, or (2) other unknown reasons. Transmission of measles among older children in the United States, most of whom have been appropriately vaccinated, has raised the question of whether waning vaccine-induced immunity may also be responsible for some vaccine failures. Current vaccination policy as well as mathematical models assume that vaccine-induced immunity is life-long. If waning vaccine-induced immunity does occur, changes in measles vaccination strategies might be ...
Histoplasmosis is worldwide systemic mycoses caused by the dimorphic fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. The isolation and identification of H. capsulatum in culture is the reference test for histoplasmosis diagnosis confirmation. However, in the absence of it, serology has been used as a presumptive diagnosis through antibody and antigen detection. The purpose of the present study was to validate an immunoassay method (western blot) for antibodies detection in the diagnosis of histoplasmosis. To validate the western blot (WB) a study was conducted using 118 serum samples from patients with histoplasmosis and 118 serum controls collected from January 2000 to December 2013 in residents of the Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. Diagnostic validation parameters were calculated based on the categorization of results obtained in a 2 × 2 table and subjected to statistical analysis. In addition, the viability of deglycosylated histoplasmin antigen (ptHMIN) onto nitrocellulose membranes previously sensitized was

The primary exposures are maternal geohelminth infections and infant infections during the first 2 years of life. Stool samples are collected during pregnancy or at the time of birth to determine maternal infection status and at 3, 7, 13, 18, and 24 months to determine infant infection status. Stool samples are examined using a combination of methods including modified Kato-Katz method, formol-ether concentration, and carbon-coproculture. Observations for measurement of differences are made at 7, 13, 24, 36, and 60 months of age. Follow-up of all participants will be to 5 years of age. ...
