Samples of ambient air collected with three different types of spore traps in a rural location were examined for the presence of Pneumocystis carinii by screening for P. carinii-specific DNA sequences by DNA amplification. Eleven spore trap samples were analyzed by nested PCR, using oligonucleotide primers designed for the gene encoding the mitochondrial large subunit rRNA of P. carinii f. sp. carinii and P. carinii f. sp. hominis. The samples were collected over a 3-year period during the months of May to September, with a range of sampling times from 9 to 240 h. One air sample from an animal facility housing P. carinii-infected rats was also examined. P. carinii-specific amplification products were obtained from samples from each of the spore traps. The amplification products from eight air samples were cloned and sequenced. The majority of the recombinants from each of these samples had sequences identical to those of P. carinii f. sp. carinii and P. carinii f. sp. hominis, and a number of ...
Pneumocystis is a fungal genus that contains multiple species. One member of the genus that has not been formally analysed for its phylogenetic relationships and possible species status is the Pneumocystis found in laboratory mice, Pneumocystis murina sp. nov. (type strain ATCC PRA-111T=CBS 114898T), formerly known as Pneumocystis carinii f. sp. muris. To advance research in this area, approximately 3000 bp of additional DNA sequence were obtained from the locus encoding rRNAs. This sequence and others were used to determine genetic distances between P. murina and other members of the genus. These distances indicated that P. murina DNA is most similar to that of the species of Pneumocystis found in laboratory rats. Nevertheless, P. murina is at least as diverged from these other Pneumocystis species as species in other fungal genera are from each other. The 18S rRNA gene sequence divergence exhibited by P. murina could not be ascribed to accelerated evolution of this gene as similar levels of divergence
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in human immunodeficiency virus-infected individuals, despite the widespread use of prophylaxis and the development of new chemotherapeutic agents. The study of P. carinii and of pulmonary host defenses directed against it has been limited by lack of reliable, reproducible methods to obtain pure populations of organisms in useful quantities. While recent success has been achieved with cultures of rat P. carinii organisms, cultures of mouse P. carinii organisms have not been successful. Experiments were performed to determine whether P. carinii organisms derived from mice could be propagated in vitro. Mouse P. carinii organisms, obtained from the lungs of chronically infected athymic mice, were inoculated into spinner flasks containing HEL299 feeder cells seated on microcarrier beads. The numbers of mouse P. carinii organisms increased significantly over 7 days in culture. To test the viability and pathogenicity of ...
Summary Sera from patients with likely and possible Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) on the basis of clinical information and laboratory investigations were tested by immunoblotting to assess the usefulness of trophozoites in the serodiagnosis of PCP. IgG antibodies to 50-60- kDa proteins were demonstrated with cyst antigen, but antibodies to additional proteins of 61, 70, 82, 95, 99 and 116 kDa were found with trophozoite antigen. These bands were not demonstrated with control sera. IgG antibody to the 116-kDa protein was found in 18 (46%) of 39 sera from patients with possible PCP compared with 5 (17%) of 30 sera from patients with likely PCP. There was no other significant difference between the two patient groups in detection of these proteins. Sera with higher indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) IgG titres were more likely to be immunoblot positive. Only 4 of 16 patients with likely PCP were IgG negative in the IFA; three of these were IgG immunoblot positive. In 4 of 10 patients with

N2 - Pneumocystis is an important fungal pathogen that causes life-threatening pneumonia in patients with AIDS and malignancy. Lung fungal pathogens are recognized by C-type lectin receptors (CLRs), which bind specific ligands and stimulate innate immune responses. The CLR Dectin-1 was previously shown to mediate immune responses to Pneumocystis spp. For this reason, we investigated a potential role for Dectin-2. Rats with Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) exhibited elevated Dectin-2 mRNA levels. Soluble Dectin-2 carbohydrate-recognition domain fusion protein showed binding to intact Pneumocystis carinii (Pc) and to native Pneumocystis ...

The binding of P. carinii to alveolar epithelial cells and extracellular matrix constituents such as fibronectin and vitronectin is a central feature of infection, which initiates proliferation of the organism. Herein, we demonstrate that P. carinii binding to lung cells specifically alters the gene expression of the organism, regulating fungal growth. Subtractive hybridization was performed to isolate P. carinii genes expressed following binding to mammalian extracellular matrix constituents. P. carinii STE20 (PCSTE20), a gene participating in mating and ...
A. Statement of Hypotheses:. HIV-infected patients have an increased incidence of emphysema compared to non-HIV-infected smokers, and it has been hypothesized that this accelerated disease progression is the result of one or more latent infections that amplifies the pulmonary inflammatory response to cigarette smoke. Pneumocystis is one infectious agent that likely plays a key role in the development of HIV-associated emphysema. Colonization with Pneumocystis has been demonstrated in HIV-infected subjects, and HIV-infected smokers are particularly susceptible to Pc colonization regardless of CD4 cell count or use of prophylaxis. Pneumocystis colonization is also increased in non-HIV-infected patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is directly related to the severity of the disease. The presence of Pneumocystis in the lungs, even at low levels as seen in colonization, produces inflammatory changes similar to those seen in COPD, with increases in the numbers of neutrophils ...

Our thanks to Dr. Melanie T. Cushion for her comments on the life cycle text.. This is a generalised life cycle proposed by John J. Ruffolo, Ph.D. (Cushion, MT, 1988) for the various species of Pneumocystis. These fungi are found in the lungs of mammals where they reside without causing overt infection until the hosts immune system becomes debilitated. Then, an oftentimes lethal pneumonia can result. Asexual phase: trophic forms replicate by mitosis. Sexual phase: haploid trophic forms conjugate and produce a zygote or sporocyte (early cyst). The zygote undergoes meiosis and subsequent mitosis to produce eight haploid nuclei (late phase cyst). Spores exhibit different shapes (such as, spherical and elongated forms). It is postulated that elongation of the spores precedes release from the spore case. It is believed that the release occurs through a rent in the cell wall. After release, the empty spore case usually collapses, but retains some residual cytoplasm. A trophic stage, where the ...
To the editor: Extrapulmonary dissemination of Pneumocystis carinii is rare. To our knowledge, P. carinii infection of the bone marrow has been reported in only three patients, each having a nonmalignant immunodeficiency syndrome (1-3). Conversely, P. carinii pneumonia occurs frequently in homosexual men who have T-cell immunodeficiency (4) as well as in patients with various malignancies after chemotherapy (5). However, infection with this organism has not been described in the bone marrow of patients with lymphoma. We report the cases of two patients with lymphoma who had such infections and propose bone marrow biopsy as a routine examination to confirm ...
Two sources of rats free of latent Pneumocystis carinii are described. First, rats from a virus-free colony failed to develop infection after 8 weeks of immune suppression unless they were housed with previously infected rats. Second, pregnant rats (non-virus free) received trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole from day 10 of gestation until the pups were weaned. Pups raised in filter-topped cages and immunosuppressed for 8 weeks were free of P. carinii infection. ...
Pneumocystis carinii rarely presents outside the lung; when it does, it occurs with lung involvement and severe disease. We report a case in which P. carinii presented as an otic polyp in an apparently healthy man. The patient, a former drug addict, had no evidence of pulmonary disease but had antibody to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).. A 36-year-old Hispanic man had had several episodes of acute otitis media as a child that required bilateral myringotomy and tube placement. He was aware of progressively decreasing hearing in the left ear, which had become worse in the past year. He had ...

Oslo University biologists Morten Laane and Ivar Mysterud have discovered a method to identify Borrelia bacteria in the blood samples of patients, many of them seriously or chronically ill. Their experiments show that virtually all Borrelia bacteria are capable of changing into cyst forms within an hour and that antibiotic medication is then unable to destroy them." ...
Screening for this agent in rodents in research studies can be important for obtaining reliable and interpretable results. Because this pathogen occurs widely in the environment, many animals have been exposed to it and serology testing is therefore unable to reliably determine animals current carrier status. Detection of this pathogen by PCR is useful because this technique is very sensitive and specific. Results will not be compromised if the infection is at early stage or the animal is immunodeficient. ...

Glycosphingolipid (GSL) Lactosyl Ceramide (LacCer) is thought to be involved in Pneumocystis interaction with the host. Our previous results show that treatment with glycosphingolipid synthesis inhibitor PDMP reduces the fungus lung burden as well as symptoms of inflammation in mice with Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP). Experiments were set up to resolve whether anti-inflammatory effects were due to the specific mechanisms involved in innate immune responses to Pneumocystis, or to some general anti-inflammatory property of PDMP. Animals were infected with live organisms, or challenged with either beta-glucan (the pro-inflammatory component of Pneumocystis cell wall) or LPS (inducer of lung inflammation unrelated to Pneumocystis). At the experimental endpoint the following inflammatory parameters were assessed: leukocyte recruitment to the lungs, production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, histopathology and lung damage. Results show that glucan-induced acute inflammation partially ...
Summary Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) is the most common opportunistic infection in children who have acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Despite the publication of guidelines for prophylaxis against PCP for children infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in 1991 (1), ongoing AIDS surveillance has detected no substantial decrease in PCP incidence among HIV-infected infants. Studies indicate that this continued incidence is associated with failure to identify HIV-infected children before PCP occurs and with limitations in the ability of CD4+ measurements to identify children at risk for PCP. In March 1994, the National Pediatric & Family HIV Resource Center, * in collaboration with CDC, convened a working group to review additional data about the occurrence of PCP among HIV-infected children and to reevaluate the 1991 PCP prophylaxis guidelines for children. This report summarizes these new data and presents revised PCP prevention guidelines that recommend a) promptly ...
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), the most common presenting manifestation of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), is a major and recurring cause of morbidity and mortality for persons infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In recent years, important advances have been made in understanding which patient subpopulations are athighest risk for developing PCP and in the design of chemotherapeutic regimens that can reduce the frequency of this illness. Recently, a number of experts* convened by the National Institutes of Health independently reviewed data on prophylaxis against PCP among persons infected with HIV, and then provided recommendations to the U.S. Public Health Service concerning which persons should receive prophylaxis and what specific prophylactic regimens should be used. The resulting guidelines are detailed below. BACKGROUND Since the early 1980s, management of PCP has become increasingly successful, and several effective chemotherapeutic regimens are ...

Pneumocystis pneumonia is a potentially life-endangering disease caused by the fungal pathogen Pneumocystis jiroveci. It is predominantly observed in immunocompromised individuals. This microorganism is the most common causative agent of opportunistic infections in patients who present with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in developed countries.
Pneumocystis jiroveci (formerly known as P. carinii f.sp. hominis) is an opportunistic fungus that causes Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) in immunocompromised individuals. Pneumocystis jiroveci can be detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). To investigate the clinical importance of a positive Pneumocystis-PCR among HIV-uninfected patients suspected of bacterial pneumonia, a retrospective matched case-control study was conducted ...
Two hundred and eighty two specimens from 220 patients positive for HIV with respiratory tract symptoms, or febrile illness, or both, were examined for the presence of Pneumocystis carinii. Specimens were either induced sputum samples or bronchoalveolar lavage fluids. To establish the optimal method for laboratory diagnosis a comparison was made of detection of the organism by use of monoclonal antibody and immunofluorescence with conventional silver staining methods. Three commercially available reagents for immunofluorescence were also compared. Immunofluorescence was significantly more sensitive than the silver stain and the best results for immunofluorescence were obtained using. Northumbria Biologicals Ltd reagents.. ...
Os primeiros informes sobre este xénero fíxoos o brasileiro Carlos Chagas en 1909[12] que o descubriu en animais experimentais, pero confundiuno cun estadio do ciclo de vida de Trypanosoma cruzi (axente causal da enfermidae de Chagas) e posteriormente chamou a ambos os organismos Schizotrypanum cruzi, unha forma de tripanosoma que infectaba a humanos.[13] O redescubrimento de quistes de Pneumocystis fíxoo Antonio Carini en 1910 tamén no Brasil.[14] O xénero foi de novo descuberto en 1912 por Delanoë e Delanoë no Instituto Pasteur de París, que o atoparon en ratas e propuxeron para el o nome xenérico e específico de Pneumocystis carinii en honor a Antonio Carini.[15]. Pneumocystis foi redescrito como patóxeno humano en 1942 por dous investigadores holandeses, van der Meer e Brug, que o atoparon en tres novos casos humanos: un meniño de 3 meses cunha enfermidade cardíaca conxénita e en dúas autopsias (de entre 104 realizadas) dun neno e un adulto.[16] Como só había unha especie ...
The disease PCP is relatively rare in people with normal immune systems, but common among people with weakened immune systems, such as premature or severely malnourished children, the elderly, and especially persons living with HIV/AIDS (in whom it is most commonly observed).[1][10] PCP can also develop in patients who are taking immunosuppressive medications. It can occur in patients who have undergone solid organ transplantation or bone marrow transplantation and after surgery.[11] Infections with Pneumocystis pneumonia are also common in infants with hyper IgM syndrome, an X-linked or autosomal recessive trait. The causative organism of PCP is distributed worldwide[12] and Pneumocystis pneumonia has been described in all continents except Antarctica.[12] More than 75% of children are seropositive by the age of 4, which suggests a high background exposure to the organism. A post mortem study conducted in Chile of 96 persons who died of unrelated causes (suicide, traffic accidents, and so ...

True polyploidy rarely occurs in humans, although polyploid cells occur in highly differentiated tissue, such as liver parenchyma, heart muscle, placenta and in bone marrow.[1][48] Aneuploidy is more common. Polyploidy occurs in humans in the form of triploidy, with 69 chromosomes (sometimes called 69, XXX), and tetraploidy with 92 chromosomes (sometimes called 92, XXXX). Triploidy, usually due to polyspermy, occurs in about 2-3% of all human pregnancies and ~15% of miscarriages.[citation needed] The vast majority of triploid conceptions end as a miscarriage; those that do survive to term typically die shortly after birth. In some cases, survival past birth may be extended if there is mixoploidy with both a diploid and a triploid cell population present. There has been one report of a child surviving to the age of seven months with complete triploidy syndrome. He failed to exhibit normal mental or physical neonatal development, and died from a Pneumocystis carinii infection, which indicates a ...

There are several diseases cats, dogs and other animals can transmit to humans, but how likely are humans to get sick? Here is a look at five diseases that you can get from pets. Giardiasis A common gastrointestinal infection occurring in dogs and cats. When humans are infected, it usually is from contact with a dog. Pets can pick up the infection by ingesting giardia in its cyst form, generally in food or water. Humans may become infected by ingesting cysts that may be in the dogs

In the study of infectious disease, access to the genome of a pathogen provides new information that can be pivotal in combating the diseases it causes. The hope is that the genome of P. jirovecii will lead to new advances in therapies for those suffering from Pneumocystis pneumonia. The current drugs of choice for treating Pneumocystis pneumonia are antifolates, but certain isolates of P. jirovecii have already developed resistance to antifolates, an ability that is very likely to spread.. Now that the genome of P. jirovecii is assembled and available to researchers all over the world, scientists can tease out clues about the organism that will help identify targets for some badly needed new drugs.. A copy of the article can be found online at http://mbio.asm.org/content/4/1/e00428-12.. Some Key points regarding Pneumocystis Jiroveci. ...
PNRP : Pneumocystis pneumonia is an important cause of opportunistic infection in immunocompromised patients, particularly those with HIV. The causative agent, Pneumocystis jiroveci, cannot be cultured in vitro and, therefore, laboratory detection has historically relied upon microscopic identification directly from patient specimens using fluorescent stains or antibodies. Unfortunately, stains often lack sensitivity and require expertise on the part of the reader in order to differentiate Pneumocystis jiroveci from staining artifacts and other fungi. This real-time PCR assay provides sensitive (21% more sensitive than direct detection using fluorescent calcofluor white stain), specific, and objective detection of Pneumocystis from bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and other specimens.

Pneumocystis jirovecii, previously known as Pneumocystis cariniii , is an opportunistic parasite that causes P. jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) in immunocompromised hosts. Most immunocompetent children acquire asymptomatic infection with P. jirovecii by the age of 4 years,1 while symptomatic disease occurs almost exclusively in severely immunocompromised hosts.. Pneumocystis has been recognised as a cause of pneumonia since the 1940s when epidemics of plasma cell pneumonia were diagnosed in malnourished and premature infants in care homes in Eastern Europe.2 In the 1960s, as immunosuppressive therapy for malignancy … ...

Background With the increasing use of immunosuppressive agents, the number of opportunistic infections has risen in patients with autoimmune diseases. Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) is one of these opportunistic infections that have a high mortality rate. However, only a few studies have described PCP in these patients, and these studies are limited in scope. We conducted this retrospective study to describe the clinical characteristics and factors associated with outcomes of PCP in patients with autoimmune diseases. Methods A retrospective study was performed in laboratory diagnosed PCP patients with autoimmune diseases in an academic hospital over a 10-year period. Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection were not included. Clinical characteristics were collected and the factors related to death were analysed. Results A total of 69 patients with PCP during the study period were included. Common clinical features included fever (81%), cough (56%), and dyspnea (35%). Ground glass

Background: Endogenous Neonatal Cushings syndrome (CS) is a rare condition with around 100 cases reported worldwide. Pneumocystis Jiroveci pneumonitis (PJP) is a well described, albeit rare, complication of exogenous CS (i.e. CS resulting from external glucocorticoids). The pneumonitis usually occurs following reduction of glucocorticoid dosage and is therefore thought to be triggered by an inappropriate immune reaction evident after glucocorticoids withdrawal, treatment of which includes both antibiotics and glucocorticoids. PJP has not been hitherto described in neonatal endogenous CS.. Objective: To describe the problems associated with therapy of life-threating PJP in a baby with active neonatal CS with particular attention to glucocorticoid levels.. Case presentation: A 3-month old female infant presented with failure of linear growth and mild hirsutism. She was diagnosed with CS, with high fasting cortisol levels (893 nmol/l). After low dose (15 mcg/kg) dexamethasone- cortisol ...

Immunocompromised individuals typically have at least one immune system component missing. They can either inherit or acquire these defects. For example, defects in a single gene can lead to two inherited immunodeficiency disorders that involve B cells. (See "Defective Gene Linked to Two Inherited Immune Deficiencies.") These disorders predispose individuals to severe infections in the respiratory, sinus, and gastrointestinal systems. Many immunocompromised conditions, however, are acquired.. As for acquiring such defects, in 2006, UNAIDS and the World Health Organization estimated that approximately 39.5 milling people were living with HIV. That year alone, there were 4.3 million new infections, with the majority occurring in sub-Saharan Africa. HIV targets T cells, and in particular, T helper cells, which are critical to fighting infections caused by fungi and parasites. This is why people with advanced, untreated AIDS develop unusual infections such as Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and ...

By late 1980 and early 1981, it was starting to become apparent that something new and disturbing was happening. People were starting to fall ill with lethal forms of rare diseases, including pneumocystis pneumonia and a rare form of skin cancer called Kaposis sarcoma. The most visible of the first victims were gay men, though it would later become apparent that the syndrome was affecting other groups too. By April 1981, the US government had been alerted to what was going on by an upsurge in requests for Pentamidine, a rare drug used to treat pneumocystis. The syndrome was mentioned in the gay press in May 1981, and the following month it was reported in an article in a widely circulated weekly report published by the federal Centers for Disease Control, from where it found its way into the mainstream media. A task force was formed, and doctors strove to get on top of the problem. From the outset, it was suspected that a virus was to blame - indeed, doctors had already been worried about the ...

As for a little more about me, the naturopathic doc. I became interested in much of this in 1989. My father had AIDS, my sister chronic depression and an eating disorder. I lost both of these members of my family in 1990 and 1991. During this time, I started reading the books of Norman Walker, Paavo Aairola, and Ann Wigmore. I became fascinated with natural healing and how it was different from conventional medicine. I learned in a class at Baruch College, where I was studying accounting of all things, that the AZT my father was taking was toxic to his bone marrow and could cause liver cirrhosis. Later I learned that the Pentamidine my father was taking to prevent Pneumocystis Carinii was incredibly toxic. Why would good doctors prescribe these toxic medications? What else is out there ...
Transplant patients are managed by a multidisciplinary team comprising transplant surgeons, pulmonologists, nurse coordinators, pharmacists, physical therapists, dietitians, psychologists, and social workers. At each transplant center, a nurse coordinator is on call to address concerns regarding the care of posttransplant patients in the ED. Patients tend to be well educated and well informed about their disease, but the nurse coordinator may be able to provide additional information regarding recent infection history, medication doses, rejection history, and potential complications in a specific patient. Coordinators should always be called early in the course of patient assessment and management.. Posttransplant patients are at risk for several complications related to their underlying disease, medication side effects, and immunocompromised state. Most centers use cyclosporine, azathioprine, and prednisone for maintenance immunosuppression. In addition, prophylaxis against Pneumocystis carinii ...
