Coccidioidomycosis: Infection with a fungus of the genus COCCIDIOIDES, endemic to the SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES. It is sometimes called valley fever but should not be confused with RIFT VALLEY FEVER. Infection is caused by inhalation of airborne, fungal particles known as arthroconidia, a form of FUNGAL SPORES. A primary form is an acute, benign, self-limited respiratory infection. A secondary form is a virulent, severe, chronic, progressive granulomatous disease with systemic involvement. It can be detected by use of COCCIDIOIDIN.Coccidioides: A mitosporic fungal genus which causes COCCIDIOIDOMYCOSIS.ArizonaFungal Vaccines: Suspensions of attenuated or killed fungi administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious fungal disease.Coccidioidin: A sterile solution containing the by-products of growth products of COCCIDIOIDES IMMITIS, injected intracutaneously as a test for COCCIDIOIDOMYCOSIS.Lung Diseases, Fungal: Pulmonary diseases caused by fungal infections, usually through hematogenous spread.Antibodies, Fungal: Immunoglobulins produced in a response to FUNGAL ANTIGENS.Antigens, Fungal: Substances of fungal origin that have antigenic activity.Naval Medicine: The practice of medicine concerned with conditions affecting the health of individuals associated with the marine environment.Antifungal Agents: Substances that destroy fungi by suppressing their ability to grow or reproduce.

(From Dorland, 27th ed)Endemic Diseases: The constant presence of diseases or infectious agents within a given geographic area or population group. It may also refer to the usual prevalence of a given disease with such area or group. It includes holoendemic and hyperendemic diseases. A holoendemic disease is one for which a high prevalent level of infection begins early in life and affects most of the child population, leading to a state of equilibrium such that the adult population shows evidence of the disease much less commonly than do children (malaria in many communities is a holoendemic disease). A hyperendemic disease is one that is constantly present at a high incidence and/or prevalence rate and affects all groups equally.

Lung weight parallels disease severity in experimental coccidioidomycosis. (1/380)

Evidence provided by histopathological study of lesions is a valuable adjunct for evaluating chemotherapeutic efficacy in experimental animal models, In addition, this should be correlated with a measure of disease severity in the same animal. The latter could be obtained by homogenization of infected organs and quantitative enumeration of viable cells of the etiological agent, but this would preclude histopathological studies in the same animal. Progression of disease in pulmonary infection is associated with replacement of air space by fluid, cells, and cellular debris. Therefore, an increase in lung weight should reflect severity of disease. Results with the murine model of coccidioidomycosis demonstrate that increasing lung weight parallels the increasing census of fungus cells in the lungs of both treated and nontreated infected mice. This was supported with evidence obtained from microscopic studies of lesions indicating that specific chemotherapy limited spread of the infection and inhibited multiplication of the fungus in the lung. Therefore, lung weight can be used as a measure of disease severity in the murine model of coccidioidomycosis.  (+info)

MR imaging of acute coccidioidal meningitis. (2/380)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our purpose was to describe the MR imaging findings in patients with acute coccidioidal meningitis. METHODS: Fourteen patients (11 men, three women; 22-78 years old; mean age, 47 years) with coccidioidal meningitis underwent neuroimaging within 2 months of diagnosis. Thirteen patients had MR imaging and one had an initial CT study with a follow-up MR examination 5 months later. Initial and follow-up MR images were evaluated for the presence of ventricular dilatation, signal abnormalities, enhancement characteristics, sites of involvement, and evidence of white matter or cortical infarction. The patterns of enhancement were characterized as focal or diffuse. Pathologic specimens were reviewed in two patients. RESULTS: Ten of the 14 images obtained at the time of initial diagnosis showed evidence of meningitis. All of the initially abnormal studies showed enhancement in the basal cisterns, sylvian fissures, or pericallosal region. Subsequent studies, which were available for three of the four patients with normal findings initially, all eventually became abnormal, with focal enhancement seen on the initial abnormal examination. Other abnormalities seen at presentation included ventricular dilatation (six patients) and deep infarcts (four patients). Pathologic specimens in two patients showed focal collections of the organism corresponding to the areas of intense enhancement on MR images. CONCLUSION: Early in its disease course, coccidioidal meningitis may show areas of focal enhancement in the basal cisterns, which may progress to diffuse disease. Pathologically, the areas of enhancement represent focal collections of the organism. Deep infarcts and communicating hydrocephalus are associated findings.  (+info)

Endemic mycoses: a treatment update. (3/380)

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)

Reactivation of coccidioidomycosis in a fit American visitor. (4/380)

The case history is presented of an American visitor, known to have had primary coccidioidomycosis previously, who became very unwell during a visit to the UK. Despite consideration of reactivation of coccidioidomycosis from the outset, other pathogens were identified while Coccidioides immitis was not initially, leading to a delay in treatment.  (+info)

The first imported case of pulmonary coccidioidomycosis in Korea. (5/380)

Coccidioidomycosis is an endemic disease found in the southwestern part of North America. Travellers who visit the endemic area may carry the infection. We report a case of pulmonary coccidioidomycosis in a 74-year-old woman. She was healthy before visiting Arizona, U.S.A twice. After returning home, she began to complain of intermittent dry coughing. The symptom was mild, however, and she was treated symptomatically. Later a chest radiograph, which was taken 4 years after the onset of the symptom, showed a solitary pulmonary nodule in the right upper lobe. By percutaneous needle aspiration, a few clusters of atypical cells were noted in the necrotic background. A right upper and middle lobectomy was done. A 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.2 cm sized tan nodule was present in otherwise normal lung parenchyma. Microscopically, the nodule consisted of aggregates of multiple solid granulomas inside of which was mostly necrotic. Neutrophils and nuclear debris were scattered along the periphery of the necrotic foci. Numerous multinucleated giant cells were associated with the granulomas. In the necrotic area, mature spherules of Coccidioides immitis, which were 30-100 microm in diameter, were present. They contained numerous endospores which ranged from 5 to 15 microm and were also noted in multinucleated giant cells. The diagnosis of coccidioidomycosis was made. She is doing well after the resection.  (+info)

Genes influencing resistance to Coccidioides immitis and the interleukin-10 response map to chromosomes 4 and 6 in mice. (6/380)

Coccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection that is endemic in the southwestern United States. Infection is more severe in blacks and Filipinos, which suggests that there is a genetic basis for susceptibility to this infection in humans. We found that there is also a difference in resistance to Coccidioides immitis infection among inbred mouse strains: B6 mice are susceptible, while DBA/2 mice are resistant (T. N. Kirkland and J. Fierer, Infect. Immun. 40:912-916, 1983). In this paper we report the results of our efforts to map the genes responsible for resistance to this infection in mice. Mice were infected by intraperitoneal inoculation, and 15 days later the numbers of viable fungi in their lungs and spleens were enumerated. We also determined the amounts of interleukin-10 mRNA made in the infected lungs. These three phenotypes were mapped as quantitative traits by using the 26 available lines of recombinant inbred mice derived from a cross between B6 and DBA/2 mice. The best associations were those between the regions near the Lv locus on chromosome 4 and the Tnfr1 locus on chromosome 6. We then infected backcross mice [(B6 x DBA/2) x B6] and confirmed these associations; 14 of 16 (87%) mice that were heterozygous at both Lv and Tnfr1 were resistant to infection, whereas only 4 of 16 (25%) mice that were homozygous B6 at both loci were resistant. These are the first genetic loci to be associated with susceptibility to C. immitis, but there may be additional genes involved in murine resistance to this infection.  (+info)

Resistance to Coccidioides immitis in mice after immunization with recombinant protein or a DNA vaccine of a proline-rich antigen. (7/380)

Two inbred strains of mice (BALB/c and C57BL/6) were vaccinated with either recombinant expression protein of a Coccidioides immitis spherule-derived proline-rich antigen (rPRA) in monophosphoryl lipid A-oil emulsion adjuvant or a DNA vaccine based on the same antigen. Four weeks after vaccination, mice were infected intraperitoneally with arthroconidia. By 2 weeks, groups of mice receiving saline or plasmids with no PRA insert exhibited significant weight loss, and quantitative CFUs in the lungs ranged from 5.9 to 6.4 log10. In contrast, groups of mice immunized with either rPRA or DNA vaccine had significantly smaller pulmonary fungal burdens, ranging from 3.0 to 4.5 log10 fewer CFUs. In vitro immunologic markers of lymphocyte proliferation and gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) release after splenocytes were stimulated with rPRA correlated with protection. Also, plasma concentrations of rPRA-specific total immunoglobulin G (IgG), IgG1, and IgG2a showed increases in vaccinated mice. These studies expand earlier work by demonstrating protection in mice which differ in H-2 background, by using an adjuvant that is potentially applicable to human use, and by achieving comparable protections with a DNA-based vaccine. Our in vitro results substantiate a Th1 response as evidenced by IFN-gamma release and increased IgG2a. However, IgG1 was also stimulated, suggesting some Th2 response as well. PRA is a promising vaccine candidate for prevention of coccidioidomycosis and warrants further investigation.  (+info)

Construction of a single-chain interleukin-12-expressing retroviral vector and its application in cytokine gene therapy against experimental coccidioidomycosis. (8/380)

T-cell-mediated immunity is an important determinant in protection against primary infection with Coccidioides immitis, a dimorphic fungal pathogen that causes the disease coccidioidomycosis. To determine if interleukin-12 (IL-12) gene therapy could potentiate host response against C. immitis, we constructed a single-chain cDNA encoding the p40 and p35 subunits linked by a polylinker and, using a retroviral vector, transfected J774 macrophages with the construct. The transduced J774 cells expressed IL-12 in vitro, with a mean concentration of 28,440 pg from 10(6) cells in 48 h as measured by an IL-12 (p75)-specific enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The secreted IL-12 was biologically active, as judged by its ability to induce the production of gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) by spleen cells from BALB/c mice. Treatment of the highly susceptible BALB/c mouse strain with the IL-12-transduced J774 cells inhibited C. immitis growth in tissues from mice challenged by a pulmonary route, as evidenced by 1.37-, 2.59-, and 1.22-log reductions in the number of CFU in the lungs, spleens, and livers, respectively, compared to the fungal load in mice given vector-transduced J774 cells. The protective effect of IL-12 gene therapy was accompanied by increased levels of IFN-gamma in the lungs and sera of mice treated with IL-12-transduced J774 cells and the constitutive production of IFN-gamma by their spleen cells cultured in vitro. These results suggest that IL-12 gene therapy could be used as adjunct therapy for coccidioidomycosis.  (+info)

For patients with clinically mild infection, such as focal pneumonia, or who have a positive coccidioidal serologic test alone, initial therapy with a triazole antifungal is appropriate (BII). Fluconazole or itraconazole at doses of 400 mg daily is recommended (636Galgiani JN, Ampel NM, Blair JE, et al. Coccidioidomycosis. Clin Infect Dis 2005;41:1217-23., 637Galgiani JN, Ampel NM, Catanzaro A, et al. Practice guideline for the treatment of coccidioidomycosis. Clin Infect Dis 2000;30:658-61.). Data are limited with regard to the newer triazoles, posaconazole and voriconazole, but these agents might be useful in cases that fail to respond to fluconazole or itraconazole. Voriconazole should be used cautiously with HIV PIs and efavirenz..

Coccidioidomycosis, a mild flulike illness in approximately 40% of infected persons, progresses to severe pulmonary or disseminated disease in 1% to 10% of symptomatic cases. We examined host genetic influences on disease severity among class II HLA loci and the ABO blood group. Participants included African-American, Caucasian, and Hispanic persons with mild or severe disseminated coccidioidomycosis from Kern County, California. Among Hispanics, predisposition to symptomatic disease and severe disseminated disease is associated with blood types A and B, respectively. The HLA class II DRB1*1301 allele marks a pre-disposition to severe disseminated disease in each of the three groups. Reduced risk for severe disease is associated with DRB1*0301-DQB1*0201 among Caucasians and Hispanics and with DRB1*1501-DQB1*0602 among African-Americans. These data support the hypothesis that host genes, in particular HLA class II and the ABO blood group, influence susceptibility to severe coccidioidomycosis ...
Coccidioidomycosis (/kɒkˌsɪdiɔɪdoʊmaɪˈkoʊsɪs/, kok-sid-ee-oy-doh-my-KOH-sis), commonly known as "cocci", "Valley fever", as well as "California fever", "desert rheumatism", and "San Joaquin Valley fever", is a mammalian fungal disease caused by Coccidioides immitis or Coccidioides posadasii. Coccidioidomycosis is endemic in certain parts of Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, and northern Mexico. C. immitis is a dimorphic saprophytic fungus that grows as a mycelium in the soil and produces a spherule form in the host organism. It resides in the soil in certain parts of the southwestern United States, most notably in California and Arizona. It is also commonly found in northern Mexico, and parts of Central and South America. C. immitis is dormant during long dry spells, then develops as a mold with long filaments that break off into airborne spores when it rains. The spores, known as arthroconidia, are swept into the air by disruption of the soil, such as during ...

N2 - The proinflammatory cytokines tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), interleukin-1α (IL-1α), and interleukin-6 (IL-6) were induced in mice infected with Coccidioides immitis. Analyses of the cytokine profiles of two inbred mouse strains which differ in their susceptibility to pulmonary challenge with C. immitis revealed higher levels of IL-6 in lungs from DBA/2 mice (resistant strain) than in those from BALB/c mice (susceptible strain) beginning at day 6 and continuing through day 15 postinfection. Spleen cells from both mouse strains secreted TNF-α, IL-1α, and IL-6 in vitro in response to stimulation with killed spherules but differed in that spleen cells from the resistant strain produced increased levels of these cytokines earlier after pulmonary challenge and at increased levels throughout the course ...
Epidemiology. Coccidioidomycosis is caused by a soil-dwelling fungus that consists of two species, Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii. Most cases of coccidioidomycosis in HIV-infected individuals have been reported in the areas in which the disease is highly endemic.1 In the United States, these areas include the lower San Joaquin Valley and other arid regions in southern California; much of Arizona; the southern regions of Utah, Nevada, and New Mexico; and western Texas.2 Recently, cases of coccidioidomycosis that appeared to be acquired in eastern Washington state have been reported.3 Whether this is anomalous or is a manifestation of an expanding area of endemicity is not clear at this time. In some instances, coccidioidomycosis has been diagnosed in patients with HIV infection well outside the known endemic regions. These have presumably been the result of reactivation of a previously acquired infection.. The risk of developing symptomatic coccidioidomycosis after infection is ...

Valley fever (also called coccidioidomycosis or "cocci") is a disease caused by a fungus that grows in the soil and dirt in some areas of California and the southwestern United States. Anyone who lives, works, or visits in areas where Valley fever has been reported can become infected. People and animals can get sick when they breathe in dust that contains the Valley fever fungus. This fungus usually infects the lungs and can cause respiratory symptoms including cough, fever, chest pain, and tiredness. In most people, the infection will go away on its own, but anyone who has these symptoms for more than a week should see a doctor or healthcare provider. Although it can be difficult to prevent Valley fever, the best way to reduce your risk is to avoid breathing in dirt or dust in areas where Valley fever is common. ...

Coccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection caused by the endemic fungus Coccidioides species and is acquired through inhalation of airborne arthrospores within the endemic areas of the southwest US, northern Mexico, and limited areas of Central and South America. Both humans and animals may become infected. Coccidioidomycosis may be asymptomatic or can cause acute and chronic pulmonary syndromes and, rarely, extrapulmonary infection. No human-to-human transmission of infection occurs. ...
Coccidioidomycosis, also called "Valley Fever", is an infection caused by the fungus Coccidioides. The disease is also sometimes called "San Joaquin Valley fever" or "desert rheumatism." The term "Valley Fever" usually refers to Coccidioides infection in the lungs, but the infection can spread to other parts of the body in severe cases (this is called "disseminated coccidioidomycosis").. ...

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that causes inflammation, the formation of tubercles and other growths within tissue, and can cause tissue death. These chest x-rays show advanced pulmonary tuberculosis. There are multiple light areas (opacities) of varying size that run together (coalesce). Arrows indicate the location of cavities within these light areas. The x-ray on the left clearly shows that the opacities are located in the upper area of the lungs toward the back. The appearance is typical for chronic pulmonary tuberculosis but may also occur with chronic pulmonary histiocytosis and chronic pulmonary coccidioidomycosis. Pulmonary tuberculosis is making a comeback with new resistant strains that are difficult to treat. Pulmonary tuberculosis is the most common form of the disease, but other organs can be infected. ...

In the past decade, state-specific increases in the number of reported cases of coccidioidomycosis have been observed in areas of California and Arizona where the disease is endemic. Although most coccidioidomycosis is asymptomatic or mild, infection can lead to severe pulmonary or disseminated disease requiring hospitalization and costly disease management. To determine the epidemiology of cases and toll of coccidioidomycosis-associated hospitalizations in California, we reviewed hospital discharge data for 2000-2011. During this period, there were 25,217 coccidioidomycosis-associated hospitalizations for 15,747 patients and >$2 billion US in total hospital charges. Annual initial hospitalization rates increased from 2.3 initial hospitalizations/100,000 population in 2000 to 5.0 initial hospitalizations/100,000 population in 2011. During this period, initial hospitalization rates were higher for men than women, African Americans and Hispanics than Whites, and older persons than younger persons.

The earliest recorded case of coccidioidomycosis was documented in Argentina in 1892, when a soldier was diagnosed with what was first thought to be an infection of coccidia - parasitic protozoans, like cryptosporidium and toxoplasma, that infect the intestines of animals, including chickens, cows, dogs and cats. The soldier lived with the disease for 11 years, during which time his doctors realized it was not caused by a protozoa but by a fungus. The name, however, stuck ...

AU - Lake, D. F.. PY - 2001/11/1. Y1 - 2001/11/1. N2 - Coccidioidomycosis, an infection endemic to the southwestern United States, is caused by the fungus Coccidioides immitis. Coccidioidal infection is overcome by the development of cell-mediated immunity. This study evaluated the role of dendritic cells (DCs) in the initiation of coccidioidal immunity in nonimmune individuals. It was demonstrated that DCs pulsed with the coccidioidal antigen preparation, toluene spherule lysate (TSL), induce DC maturation, autologous lymphocyte proliferation, and antigen-specific lymphocyte responses from nonimmune donors. Furthermore, TSL-primed lymphocytes secreted interferon - γ after restimulation with TSL or antigen 2/proline-rich antigen, a subcomponent of TSL, but they did not do so when restimulated with ovalbumin or ...
Coccidioides is a genus of dimorphic ascomycetes in the family Onygenaceae. Member species are the cause of coccidioidomycosis, also known as San Joaquin Valley fever, an infectious fungal disease largely confined to the Western Hemisphere and endemic in the Southwestern United States. The host acquires the disease by respiratory inhalation of spores disseminated in their natural habitat. The causative agents of coccidioidomycosis are Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii. Both C. immitis and C. posadasii are indistinguishable during laboratory testing and commonly referred in literature as Coccidioides. Coccidioidomycosis is amazingly diverse in terms of its scope of clinical presentation, as well as clinical severity. About 60% of Coccidioides infections as determined by serologic conversion are asymptomatic. The most common clinical syndrome in the other 40% of infected patients is an acute respiratory illness characterized by fever, cough, and pleuritic pain. Skin manifestations, ...

Definition of coccidioidomycosis. Provided by Stedmans medical dictionary and Drugs.com. Includes medical terms and definitions.
Coccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection that usually presents as a primary lung infection. The fungus is endemic to the Southwest United States of America, northern Mexico and parts of Central and South America the infection is rare outside these areas. However, some patients develop disseminated infection that can lie dormant for several years and can present itself in travelers. We report the first case of extra pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis in a non-immunocompromised individual in Denmark. A 32 year old Danish woman presented at the Emergency department with abdominal pain. Computed tomography scan and ultrasound examination of the pelvis raised suspicion of salpingitis. A laparoscopy exposed a necrotic salpinx and several small white elements that resembled peritoneal carcinomatosis. Histological workup however determined that she suffered from disseminated coccidioidomycosis. The patient had lived 2 years in Las Vegas, in the United States of America, 7 years prior and had no memory of lung
Ground-water quality in the approximately 3,000 square-mile Kern County Subbasin study unit (KERN) was investigated from January to March, 2006, as part of the Priority Basin Assessment Project of the Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program. The GAMA Priority Basin Assessment project was developed in response to the Groundwater Quality Monitoring Act of 2001, and is being conducted by the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The Kern County Subbasin study was designed to provide a spatially unbiased assessment of raw (untreated) ground-water quality within KERN, as well as a statistically consistent basis for comparing water quality throughout California. Samples were collected from 50 wells within the San Joaquin Valley portion of Kern County. Forty-seven of the wells were selected using a randomized grid-based method to provide a statistical

Female relative abundance declined during autumn to a minimum in December and January. Most females collected during winter were empty, inseminated, and nulliparous, indicating a cessation of gonotrophic activity. However, observations on ovarian morphometry indicated that the hibernating states achieved included reproductive diapause, quiescence, and perhaps oligopause. Females remained vagile and readily repopulated resting sites after removal sampling. Relative abundance increased in late February and March in ...
ribose-5-phosphate isomerage B (RpiB):Presented here is a series of crystal structures solved by the Seattle Structural Genomics Center for Infectious Disease (SSGCID) of ribose-5-phosphate isomerase B, or RpiB, from the pathogenic fungus, Coccidioides immitis. This parasite, which resides in the soil in certain parts of the western hemisphere, causes coccidioidomycosis, also known as Valley Fever. The disease is difficult to diagnose as it causes masses which mimics a lung tumor. Ribose-5-phosphate isomerase is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion between ribose-5-phosphate and ribulose-5-phosphate. This family of enzymes naturally occurs in two distinct classes, RpiA and RpiB, which play, among others, an important role in the pentose phosphate pathway, which converts a type of glucose into other molecules. Although RpiB occurs predominantly in bacteria, the RpiB from this fungal pathogen contains high structural similarity to other known RpiB structures despite modest sequence similarity. The C.

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 ...

In the context of our interest in host-pathogen interactions, we are pursuing currently the following projects:. Neisseria. We have developed a novel mouse model to study the mechanisms of commensalism, from the standpoint of both the host and bacterium. The model involves noninvasive inoculation of the well-studied lab mouse with a new commensal Neisseria species isolated from the normal flora of healthy wild mice. The model allows studies of colonization, and the elusive process of persistence, in a variety of mucosal niches, from the relatively well-studied intestinal tract to the less well-studied respiratory tract and oral cavity. Experimentation is guided by a vast store of knowledge on the mouse and close relatives of the bacterium. Using this unique model, we will identify immune processes and mouse genes critical for susceptibility to N. tucsonensis colonization and bacterial genes critical for colonization and persistence..

A general rule with any fungal infection is that it takes a long time to clear. Valley Fever is no different and a year of medication administration is fairly common. Treatment continues until the clinical signs have resolved, the radiographs look normal, and the antibody level has stabilized (note antibody levels may never fully drop to zero). Ketoconazole, itraconazole , and fluconazole are the usual drugs to treat this condition. Monitoring liver enzymes is important with all of these, particularly since long treatment courses are common.. Lufenuron, the active ingredient in the flea control product Program, was developed to inhibit the development of chitin (the crunchy exterior material of the insect body). The idea was that a flea larva who had fed upon blood pellets (flea dirt) from a pet treated with oral lufenuron would be unable to properly pupate into an adult flea. It turns out that the shell of Coccidioides immitis is also rich in chitin and that lufenuron at specific doses may be ...

While most Ascomycetes tend to associate principally with plants, the dimorphic fungi Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii are primary pathogens of immunocompetent mammals, including humans. Infection results from environmental exposure to Coccidiodies, which is believed to grow as a soil saprophyte in arid deserts. To investigate hypotheses about the life history and evolution of Coccidioides, the genomes of several Onygenales, including C. immitis and C. posadasii; a close, nonpathogenic relative, Uncinocarpus reesii; and a more diverged pathogenic fungus, Histoplasma capsulatum, were sequenced and compared with those of 13 more distantly related Ascomycetes. This analysis identified increases and decreases in gene family size associated with a host/substrate shift from plants to animals in the Onygenales. In addition, comparison among Onygenales genomes revealed evolutionary changes in Coccidioides that may underlie its infectious phenotype, the identification of which may ...

We describe a case of recurrent coccidioidal meningitis in which a fungal biofilm on the tip of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt tubing was likely responsible for a 4-year persistence of Coccidioides immitis, despite the patients taking an adequate dosage of fluconazole. Fungal biofilms should be considered as a cause for treatment failure and fungal persistence, especially when artificial prostheses or indwelling catheters are present.

Dr. Kearney presented an interesting case of an individual with untreated HIV who presented with dyspnea found to have hypoxemic respiratory failure. The patients history of a significant period of time off antiretroviral therapy (,3 years), the severity of the presentation of hypoxemic respiratory failure, and the severity of the lymphopenia (CD4# ,35) data-preserve-html-node="true" raised suspicion for opportunistic infection. Sputum and blood cultures for fungus subsequently returned positive for Coccidioides immitis. Treatment had been started for coccidioidomycosis empirically with an azole and was subsequently increased to include amphotericin B once cultures returned positive. Highly active antiretroviral therapy was begun on admission as well. The patients respiratory failure improved over the subsequent days, but unfortunately he developed recurrent hypoxemic respiratory failure and pseudosepsis concerning for IRIS. The differential for dyspnea in the HIV+ patient is myriad. However, ...
State public health officials suspect cases of valley fever, the insidious respiratory disease endemic to Kern County, have increased so far this year by at least 34 percent statewide - which could make it the worst year for valley fever in the diseases recorded history, according to new data released Monday.. California Department of Public Health officials estimate that through Oct. 31, at least 5,121 people have acquired coccidioidomycosis, or cocci for short, better known as valley fever. CDPH officials say that by the time those cases are confirmed - a process that typically takes until spring or early summer - the numbers generally drop, but the figures dont take into account the cases that are tallied from October through December, when most diagnoses take place. Last year, CDPH suspected there to be 3,827 cases statewide at the end of October, but that number surged to 5,372 confirmed cases by the spring - the highest since the state began recording cases.. "Were seeing more cases ...
Each year, the etiologic agents, Coccidioides immitis and C. posadasii, cause Valley Fever in tens of thousands of individuals. While it widely accepted that this fungal disease is endemic to arid locations, such as the southwestern United States, the recent discovery of endemic clusters in Washington state suggests an expansion of the geographic range. Here, we present a whole genome analysis of 86 genomes, where 68 are unique to this study. The incorporation of Bayesian phylogenetics resulted in the identification of phylogeographic structure of both species, and calibrations on the root node reveal that C. posadasii is the more ancient of the two species. Taken together, we propose that C. posadasii originated near the Arizona-Mexico border, and we suggest a subsequent dispersal mechanism and route of spread.. ...
CASE REPORT. A 31 year old white male cement finisher entered the hospital January 3, 1956, because of progressively increasing cough over the previous year, productive of a small amount of white to yellow sputum without hemoptysis. In November, 1955, the patient had sought medical attention because of nocturnal cough, and a roentgenogram of the chest revealed a "milky spot." Tuberculin and coccidioidin skin tests were said to be negative at this time. Hospitalization was recommended but refused by the patient. On admission the patient complained ...
Dr. Galgiani has focused his career on Arizonas special problems with Valley Fever. His work has included studies of the impact of Valley Fever on the general population and on special groups such as organ transplant recipients and patients with AIDS. For 19 years, as part of the NIH-sponsored Mycoses Study Group, Dr. Galgiani has been the project director of a coccidioidomycosis clinical trials group. Through collaboration, this group has evaluated new therapies for Valley Fever more rapidly and with greater clarity than might otherwise have been possible by investigators working in isolation. Dr. Galgiani has also been involved with efforts to prevent Valley Fever through vaccination. His group discovered and patented a recombinant antigen which is the basis for a vaccine candidate suitable for further development and clinical trials. Most recently, he has become the project leader for developing a new drug, nikkomycin Z, for treating Valley Fever. With recent NIH and FDA grant awards, ...
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 ...

A transfer factor is a protein molecule that is taken from a human or animal that has already developed protection (immunity) against a certain disease. (Look in I Recommend box on right to order. The only company to order from is 4Life. They hold the patent. I can vouch for them. Any other company that claims to sell Transfer Factor is not to be trusted.). Transfer factors are used for infectious conditions in people with weak immune systems. These infectious conditions include bacteria or viruses in the blood stream (septicemia), sinus infections, bronchitis, influenza, swine flu, the common cold, shingles, chickenpox, hepatitis B, fungal infections such as coccidioidomycosis, yeast infections (candidiasis), parasitic infections such as leishmaniasis and cryptosporidiosis, and leprosy. Transfer factors are also used against infections caused by viruses such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein-Barr virus; by bacteria such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium fortuitum, and ...
Healthcare: Antibiotic avoidance. Over a third of women presenting with urinary tract infection symptoms are happy to delay antibiotic treatment when asked by their GP, with the majority of these patients showing an improvement in symptoms without the need for further treatment. This intriguingly suggests that patients are much more open to reducing unnecessary antibiotic use than is often thought. More on this study over on our blog.. Microbiology: Conversion of Coccidioides. Coccidioides immitis is a disease-causing fungus in mammals that exists as molds in the wild, growing in the desert soils of the southwestern US, and in Central and South America. In humans it can cause Valley Fever or pneumonia through inhalation of spores which eventually turn into pathogenic spherules. Viriyakosol et al. now report that this conversion from spores to spherules requires major transcriptional reprogramming, and has little congruence with genetic mechanisms displayed in other dimorphic fungi.. Cancer: The ...
One of the most well-known studies of fungal infection, first noted in the late 1890s and carrying into the 1940s by physicians and researchers, was "valley fever". It was isolated to the region of the San Joaquin Valley in California, and affected over 450 farm labourers and trainee soldiers. Studies found the fungal pathogen Coccidioides immitus had became airborne and entered the body through inhalation. This research was significant for medical mycology history because it encouraged other researchers to study the effects of fungal pathogens on humans, and brought attention to fungal disease as a major player in human disease ...

Clinically, there is a wide spectrum of disease manifestation, making diagnosis somewhat difficult. More severe forms include: (1) the chronic pulmonary form, often occurring in the presence of underlying pulmonary disease; and (2) a disseminated form, which is characterized by the progressive spread of infection to extra-pulmonary sites. Oral manifestations have been reported as the main complaint of the disseminated forms, leading the patient to seek treatment, whereas pulmonary symptoms in disseminated disease may be mild or even misinterpreted as flu. Histoplasmosis can be diagnosed by samples containing the fungus taken from sputum (via bronchoalveolar lavage), blood, or infected organs. It can also be diagnosed by detection of antigens in blood or urine samples by ELISA or PCR. Antigens can cross-react with antigens of African histoplasmosis (caused by Histoplasma duboisii), blastomycosis, coccidioidomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, and Penicillium marneffei infection. Histoplasmosis can ...
Research evidence shows 111,717 reported cases in the US between 1998 - 2011. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates about 150,000 cases of valley fever go unreported each year due to lack of awareness. California Department of Public Health reported 4,094 valley fever cases in California in 2012. Over 75% of valley fever cases from California come from the people who live in the Central Valley. Just recently, 3,000 prisoners in San Joaquin Valley had to be transferred due to risk of valley fever after some other inmates contracted the disease, indicating the possibility of the fungus harboring close to the jail.There are certain current behaviors in the Central Valley that have led to the valley fever becoming such a big problem. At the individual level, workers find it easy and a convenience to not use proper masks when working outside in areas with coccidioidomycosis (scientific name of valley fever) spores. At the organizational level, organizations like the United ...
Summary and Conclusion 1. The results of a survey of skin sensitivity to histoplasmin, coccidioidin and tuberculin on the north coast of Honduras are reported. 2. Of 421 hospitalized patients, the histoplasmin skin test was positive in 47.7 per cent, doubtful in 5.2 per cent, and negative in 47.1 per cent. The coccidioidin skin test was positive in 1.0 per cent, doubtful in 2.1 per cent, and negative in 96.9 per cent. 3. Of 360 patients tested with tuberculin (P.P.D. 0.005 mg.), the result was positive in 89.5 per cent, doubtful in 2.2 per cent, and negative in 8.3 per cent. 4. Pulmonary calcifications were present in 84 (59.2 per cent) of 142 selected patients. Of these, 45.2 per cent were tuberculin positive, histoplasmin negative; 42.9 per cent were tuberculin positive, histoplasmin positive; 8.3 per cent were tuberculin negative, histoplasmin positive; and 3.6 per cent were negative to both. 5. These results suggest that, in addition to the high prevalence of tuberculosis in this area,
Pioneering health charity GAFFI is today calling on the World Health Organisation (WHO) to help hundreds of thousand of AIDS and HIV positive patients worldwide by including itraconazole on the Essential Medicine List (EML).. GAFFIs application to the WHO, in collaboration with the International Foundation for Dermatology, pinpoints key fungal diseases in AIDS for which itraconazole is crucial. Itraconazole suspension is ~70% effective for fluconazole resistant oral thrush, and is the treatment of choice for eosinophilic folliculitis, a debilitating, itchy rash associated with HIV infection. Patients with Talaromyces marneffei infection (previously called penicilliosis) and common in SE Asia, also respond really well to itraconazole, as do those with coccidioidomycosis and paracoccidioidomycosis in the Americas. Numerous skin fungal infections in adults and children with HIV infection are not adequately treated with the drug, griseofulvin, which remains on the EML.. Dr David Denning, President ...

N2 - Fluconazole is an antifungal commonly used to treat Coccidioides immitis, but this medication has a number of side effects including fatigue, rash, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and elevated liver enzymes. We are unaware of any cases of retinal toxicity related to fluconazole. In this case we present a 76 year old woman with longstanding Coccidioides treated with high dose fluconazole. She becomes symptomatic with fluconazole toxicity and subsequently develops bilateral cystoid macular edema. As her dose of fluconazole is decreased and she is transitioned to voriconazole the edema resolves and her visual acuity improves. This patients clinical course illustrates retinal toxicity may present with high and prolonged doses of fluconazole.. AB - Fluconazole is an ...
