Blastomycosis acquired occupationally during prairie dog relocation--Colorado, 1998. (1/191)

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. (2/191)

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)

Endemic mycoses: a treatment update. (3/191)

Endemic mycoses remain a major public health problem in several countries and they are becoming increasingly frequent with the spread of HIV infection. Amphotericin B remains the drug of choice during the acute stage of life-threatening endemic mycoses occurring in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised hosts. Ketoconazole is effective in non-AIDS patients with non-life-threatening histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, or paracoccidioidomycosis. Itraconazole is the treatment of choice for non-life-threatening Histoplasma capsulatum or Blastomyces dermatitidis infections occurring in immunocompetent individuals and is the most efficient secondary prophylaxis of histoplasmosis in AIDS patients. Itraconazole is also effective in lymphocutaneous and visceral sporotrichosis, in paracoccidioidomycosis, for Penicillum marneffei infection, and is an alternative to amphotericin B for Histoplasma duboisii infection. Coccidioidomycosis may be effectively treated with prolonged and sometimes life-long itraconazole or fluconazole therapy. Fluconazole has relatively poor efficacy against histoplasmosis, blastomycosis and sporotrichosis. New antifungal agents have been tested in vitro or in animal models and may soon be evaluated in clinical trials.  (+info)

Thoracic blastomycosis and empyema. (4/191)

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). (5/191)

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. (6/191)

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)

Jorge Lobo's disease: experimental inoculation in Swiss mice. (7/191)

Sixty-four isogenic Swiss mice were intradermically inoculated in both hind foot pads. The inocula, consisting of fungal suspensions from biopsies obtained from Jorge Lobo's Disease patients, had the total number of fungi and the viability index determined using a Neubauer chamber and the fluorescein diacetate-ethidium bromide technique (FD-EB), respectively. The animals were sacrificed at times ranging from ten days to eighteen months after inoculation. The cellular infiltrate, mainly consisting of macrophages containing fungi, increased progressively up to end of the study; however, no macroscopic alterations were observed in the inoculated feet. After nine months, small numbers of Langhans' giant cells started to appear in the infiltrate. A considerable number of fungi was observed at the end of the experimental period, but only a few were viable when stained by the FD-EB technique. This fact suggests that there is a multiplication of fungal cells, which are destroyed by the macrophages but remain in the tissue for a long time due perhaps to the difficulties in their elimination. These findings led us to conclude that in spite of the maintenance of the infection in these animals, Swiss mice cannot be considered an ideal model to study Jorge Lobo's Disease. However, the authors call attention to the possibility of other mouse strains being more susceptible to Paracoccidioides loboi.  (+info)

Molecular epidemiology of Blastomyces dermatitidis. (8/191)

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)

Background: Blastomycosis is a potentially fatal fungal infection contracted by inhalation of Blastomyces spores from the environment. Blastomycosis case occurrence in dogs has been associated with antecedent weather, using 6-month warm and cold periods. Paracoccidioidomycosis in South America has been associated with variations in the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI). A comprehensive human case registry has been kept in Vilas County, Wisconsin, since 1979 (mandatory reporting since 1984). Purpose: Determine the effects of weather parameters on the occurrence of human blastomycosis cases in this highly endemic area; update exposure factors since last report in 1996. Methods: Database review. Chi-squared test was used for categorical data of exposures, comparing 1979-1996 (N=101) vs. 1997-June 2013 (N=95). Linear regression was used to model lagged local weather station data (available 1990-present; N=126) and SOI, North Atlantic Oscillation Index (NAOI) and Wisconsin River water discharge (WRD)data
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 ...
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. To test this hypothesis, we propose to analyze the allelic frequencies of 15 different genes (mannose binding lectin, Fc-gamma receptor IIa and IIb, Fc-gamma receptors IIIa and IIIb, myeloperoxidase, tumor necrosis factor-alpha and -beta, interleukin 1A and 1B, interleukin-1 receptor antagonist, interleukin-10, NRAMP-1, chitotriosidase, and chemokine receptor 5) and their intragenic polymorphic forms and to compare this data to the incidence and severity of Blastomycosis dermatitidis infection. With this study we hope to identify a group of molecules of innate immunity which influence the risk and severity of invasive Blastomycosis dermatitidis infection ...

Itraconazole possesses a favorable pharmacokinetic and safety profile and can be administered once or twice daily. Absorption of itraconazole from the gastrointestinal tract is greatly enhanced by the presence of food; therefore, the drug should be administered following meals. Unlike ketoconazole, itraconazole has minimal effects upon the metabolism of endogenous steroids and other drugs. Compared with other available agents useful for the treatment of blastomycosis and histoplasmosis, itraconazole appears to be well tolerated, ...

We investigated a cluster of blastomycosis in 8 humans and 4 dogs in a rural North Carolina community. Delayed diagnosis, difficulty isolating Blastomyces dermatitidis in nature, and lack of a sensitive and specific test to assess exposure make outbreaks of this disease difficult to study.
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.
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 ...
Blastomycosis may present with fever, pain in the chest and production of sputum. Blastomycosis is caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis.
Blastomyces lives in the environment and is a fungis that produces fungal spores. When people or animals breathe in the spores, they are at risk for developing blastomycosis.
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. Tissue samples may also be taken to check for the presence of fungal organisms, especially if there is no productive cough (productive, meaning that fluids are produced). Other tests that may help diagnose blastomycosis include ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 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.. ...

No Longer Rare: by Jennifer S. Wilcox, Published in GREEAT Times. Blastomycosis (Blasto) in the dog is a commonly misdiagnosed systemic fungal disease of dogs, humans and other mammals. It is a great pretender and opportunist that can be mistaken for cancer, viral infections, Lyme Disease, or other systemic fungal diseases such as Valley Fever. Many dogs die or are euthanized each year due to delay in treatment as the result of a missed or erroneous diagnosis. Involvement of the eye may cause loss of vision or necessitate the removal of the eye. Relapse is also a concern, more often reported in females. Canine Blastomycosis is caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis. This parasitic fungus grows as a mold in moist soil or decaying vegetation and releases spores into the environment that can be inhaled by animals or humans. Young dogs that have access to the outdoors are prime candidates for blastomycosis infection, but infection has been documented in all canine breeds, cats, horses and ferrets. ...
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 ...
Itraconazole (5mg/per kilo/daily) - The drug of choice after amphotericin B has been completed. Your cat will need to be on anti-fungal medication for 60-90 days. Other antifungals may include fluconazole and ketoconazole. These medications are cheaper but not quite as effective. Therefore a longer course of medication may be required. Itraconazole and ketoconazole can cause liver problems so close veterinary monitoring will be necessary. Drug toxicity can occur with antifungal medications so that the veterinarian will monitor the cat ...

1. Since neither my D.O. nor my autoimmune doctor know of any tests for fungal infections (besides the Gut Ecology test), I talked with Amgen / Wyeth (the makers of Enbrel) and they suggest a specialist like an Infectious Disease doctor. On 8/1/13 I saw Christine S Forszpaniak, MD and she states that anyone not severely sick (vomiting, respiratory, etc.) usually does not take the tests for histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, candidiasis, aspergillosis, blastomycosis, and pneumocystosis. When these tests are done on people who are healthier, they only confirm whether antibodies have been made whenever I was in contact with one of these fungi. Even if there is a confirmation, there can be false-positives and the results can only lead to academic at best. Only when you feel ill should you take the medication for the fungal infections. As for my test results confirming Saccharomyces, taking Nystatin & Clotrimazole along with low sugar diet is the best protocol that can be done. To recap, take the ...

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 ...

In order to better assess the inter-individual variability observed in a patients pharmacokinetic response to many medications, we have created a custom genotyping panel that uses unique assay designs to analyze variation present in key genes involved in the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) of many therapeutic agents. These genes and pathways involved in most pharmacokinetic mechanisms are well known. However, as yet, there has been little effort to develop tools that can interrogate a large number of variations in most known drug metabolizing genes simultaneously within a single experimental tool. Pharmacogenomic research has historically been conducted using two approaches: targeted studies that screen a small number of specific functional markers to identify known metabolic status phenotypes, and genome-wide studies that identify novel genetic correlations with drug response phenotypes. Thus, a gap currently exists for a targeted ADME research tool that can evaluate ...

SUMMARY: We determined the small subunit (18S) ribosomal RNA sequence of the dimorphic fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis. The sequence was compared to that of fourteen other eukaryotic organisms, ten of which were higher fungi, and an evolutionary tree was constructed based on these sequences. B. dermatitidis aligned most closely with the Ascomycetes Neurospora crassa and Podospora anserina, in agreement with previous phylogenetic analysis based on morphological criteria. Phase-specific cDNA clones derived by reverse transcription of RNA isolated from the yeast and mycelial phases of B. dermatitidis were also sequenced. The 18S ribosome sequence was found to be the same in both phases. Heterogeneity was found at both the genomic and RNA level at position 1352.
This study further characterized the delayed hypersensitivity state induced in animals by Blastomyces dermatitidis exposure. Passive transfer of delayed hypersensitivity by transfer of cells and inhibition of migration of peritoneal exudate cells were studied, using sensitized mice of two inbred strains. Donor mice were subcutaneously inoculated with viable B. dermatitidis yeast cells. After 15 days, spleen cells or serum from these animals were injected intravenously into normal recipients of the same strain. After 24 h these mice were footpad tested with killed B. dermatitidis yeast cell antigen. Mice receiving spleen cells from sensitized animals had a significant increase in footpad thickness 24 to 48 h after testing. Those receiving only serum remained negative. Migration of peritoneal exudate cells from blastomyces-sensitive donor mice was inhibited by presence of blastomycin but not by mycobacterial antigen. Neither blastomyces-sensitive nor control animals reacted to footpad or migration ...

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.... ...

Fungal diseases are increasing among patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1. Infections due to Candida and Cryptococcus are the most common. Although mucocutaneous candidiasis can be treated with oral antifungal agents, increasing evidence suggests that prolonged use of these drugs results in both clinical and microbiologic resistance. The optimal therapy for cryptococcal meningitis remains unresolved, although initial treatment with amphotericin B, followed by life-long maintenance therapy with fluconazole, appears promising. Most cases of histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, and blastomycosis occur in regions where their causative organisms are endemic, and increasing data suggest that a significant proportion of disease is due to recent infection. Aspergillosis is increasing dramatically as an opportunistic infection in HIV-infected patients, in part because of the increased incidence of neutropenia and corticosteroid use in these patients. Infection due to ...
Ketoconazole is an antifungal medication used for the treatment of serious, deep fungal infections, such as blastomycosis, histoplasmosis, aspergillosis, and cryptococcosis in dogs, cats, and other pets. It may also be used against some yeast and dermatophyte (ringworm) infections. It has also been used to treat Cushings disease (hyperadrenocorticism) in dogs.

Patients treated with ENBREL are at increased risk for developing serious infections that may lead to hospitalization or death. Most patients who developed these infections were taking concomitant immunosuppressants such as methotrexate or corticosteroids or were predisposed to infection because of their underlying disease. ENBREL should not be initiated in the presence of sepsis, active infections, or allergy to ENBREL or its components. ENBREL should be discontinued if a patient develops a serious infection or sepsis. Reported infections include: 1) Active tuberculosis (TB), including reactivation of latent TB. Patients with TB have frequently presented with disseminated or extrapulmonary disease. Patients should be tested for latent TB before ENBREL use and periodically during therapy. Treatment for latent infection should be initiated prior to ENBREL use, 2) Invasive fungal infections, including histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, candidiasis, aspergillosis, blastomycosis, and ...

Functional reactivation of p53 pathway, although arduous, can potentially provide a broad-based strategy for cancer therapy owing to frequent p53 inactivation in human cancer. Using a phosphoprotein-screening array, we found that Benzyl Isothiocynate, (BITC) increases p53 phosphorylation in breast cancer cells and reveal an important role of ERK and PRAS40/MDM2 in BITC-mediated p53 activation. We show that BITC rescues and activates p53-signaling network and inhibits growth of p53-mutant cells. Mechanistically, BITC induces p73 expression in p53-mutant cells, disrupts the interaction of p73 and mutant-p53, thereby releasing p73 from sequestration and allowing it to be transcriptionally active. Furthermore, BITC-induced p53 and p73 axes converge on tumor-suppressor LKB1 which is transcriptionally upregulated by p53 and p73 in p53-wild-type and p53-mutant cells respectively; and in a feed-forward mechanism, LKB1 tethers with p53 and p73 to get recruited to p53-responsive promoters. Analyses of ...
