Then is this host specific antigenic variation due to different subspecies of P.carinii infecting their particular favorite flavor of host? Or is there one P.carinii changing its disguise to suit its situation (Like the elusive pimpernel)? Do the authors of this splendid sounding article offer an explanation?

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 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 ...

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.

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 ...
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 ...

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. ...

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. ...

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
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

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 ...

The specific system that is used to deliver PEN to the lungs may determine whether a therapeutically effective dose is attained in the lungs. Therefore, this study will establish the amount of PEN that is deposited in the lungs of patients enrolled in protocols ACTG 021 and ACTG 081, who are being treated with PEN administered from the Marquest Respirgard II nebulizer.. Approximately 4 weeks after patients in ACTG 021 and ACTG 081 have begun PEN aerosol therapy for the prevention of PCP, patients undergo the first radioactive aerosol study. The patient inhales a mist while sitting with his/her back against a gamma camera. The resulting picture outlines the lungs. This mist contains a single dose of PEN mixed with a small amount of radioactivity (99m-technetium ertechnetate). The gamma camera determines where the particles deposit in the lungs. The radioactivity exposure is equivalent to a typical xray of the ribs. This procedure takes about 45 minutes; 6 hours later another 30-minute gamma ...
Some compounds articulated around a piperazine or an ethylenediamine linker have been evaluated in vitro to determine their activity in the presence of a 3T6 fibroblast cell line and an axenic culture of Pneumocystis carinii, respectively. The most efficient antifungal derivatives, namely N,N′-bis(benzamidine-4-yl)ethane-1,2-diamine (compound 6, a diamidine) and N-(benzamidine-4-yl)-N′-phenylethane-1,2-diamine (compound 7, a monoamidine), exhibited no cytotoxicity and were evaluated in vivo in a rat model. Only the diamidine 6 emerged as a promising hit for further studies.

The C-8 phenol group is essential to exert the bioactivities of daphnetin, but it is readily conjugated with glucuronic acid prior to excretion. In this study, daphnetin-7-methylether (7M-DNP) was used to investigate the effect of 7-methyl substitution on daphnetin glucuronidation in human/rat liver (HLM/RLM) and intestine (HIM/RIM) microsomes, and recombinant UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs). Compared with daphnetin, the V-max/K-m values of 7M-DNP via 8-O-glucuronidation were 2.1-fold lower in HLM, 1.7-fold lower in HIM, and 2.4-fold lower in RLM, suggesting an improvement in metabolic stability. Different from daphnetin 8-O-glucuronidation exclusively catalyzed by UGT1A6 and UGT1A9, UGT1A1, -1A3, -1A7, -1A8, and -1A9 showed glucuronidation activity toward 7M-DNP. Kinetics studies, chemical inhibition, and the relative activity factor approach were used to demonstrate that UGT1A9 was mainly responsible for the reaction in HLM, whereas UGT1A1 was a primary contributor in HIM. The V-max/K-m ...

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..

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 ...
A case report of a patient who developed fatal pneumocystis pneumonia while in remission from acute lymphatic leukaemia is presented.
Extrapulmonary involvement with Pneumocystis carinii has been described in 0.5%*#x2013;2.5% of persons with AIDS. One hundred nine patients with AIDS and confirmed extrapulmonary pneumocystosis were identified, and seven of these patients (including our patient) had central nervous system (CNS) pneumocystosis. Of these seven patients, six had prior AIDS-related complications, and three had previous P. carinii pneumonia. Six patients had CNS symptoms, one of whom underwent a focal neurological examination. No cases were diagnosed before death. The involved sites were the cerebral cortex (2 patients), meninges (2), pituitary gland (1), putamen (1), and nonspecified locations (3). In two patients, organisms were seen around blood vessels, and in five patients there was concurrent neuropathology.

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 ...

Despite these specific defects, the immune system is resistant to malnutrition. Both adults and children suffering from PCM are still capable of antibody responses and can mount both lymphocyte response and leukocytosis. In animal studies the gut immune system is preserved despite significant protein calorie malnutrition. Putting it another way, immunity is maintained at the expense of other tissues. Muscles serves as a reservoir of energy and amino acids which can be drawn upon in illness or injury. Malnourished individuals will show muscle wasting long before the immune system fails.. Protein-calorie malnutrition has somewhat similar effects to AIDS. The specific defect produced by AIDS is depletion of T-helper cells (CD4 cells) and depression of the T-cell-mediated immune response. Infections which are thereby facilitated include Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, herpes, and tuberculosis. The similarity between PCM and AIDS suggest a synergy between the two conditions. Indeed, this can be seen ...

He was harassed by US Marshals and almost completely financially ruined by bogus IRS claims, and a Naval Intelligence operative later threatened his life and the lives of his family if he continued publishing his two books. Only a few of Garys books are still available, but there are summarized pdf versions available free on line.. Heres what Dr. Glum had to say about Essiac for AIDS in an interview circa 1990: "I also worked with the AIDS Project Los Angeles . . . . They had sent 179 patients home to die. They all had pneumocystis carinii and histoplasmosis. Their weight was down to about 100 pounds. Their T-4 cell counts were less than ten.". "The Project gave me five of these patients. I took them off the AZT and the DDI and put them on Essiac three times a day. Those are the only ones alive today. The other 174 are dead. But this information is not being disseminated either, because AIDS is on the horizon as another big moneymaker.. Dr. Glum also had success with a few cancer patients that ...

The clinical experience of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) + patients treated with oral atovaquone for acute Pneumocytstis carinii pneumonia (PCP) under a Treatment Investigational New Drug (IND) protocol (mild or moderate PCP) and an Open-Label Study protocol (severe PCP) was evaluated. A total of 940 patients intolerant of or unresponsive to trimethoprimsulfamethoxazole were enrolled from private practices, clinics, and institutional HIV treatment centers in the United States. Demographics data and the history and severity of PCP were collected at enrollment.
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 ...
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

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 ...
Hi Jrod, Do you have any specific literature where you found info about chlamydia persistence and antibiotics? Persistence is not uncommon with many bugs, including cell wall deficient bugs, like mycoplasma, and Lyme disease, which is notorious for altering its forms (spiral cell-walled, cell wall deficient spheroplasts, dormant cystic forms, blebs, etc) in order to evade abx attack. Some bugs are equipped with efflux pumps to push abx out. So, treating many of these chronic infections and slowly reducing tissue reactivity to bug toxins is quite a journey. No doubt the CPnhelp experts would be able to provide you with reliable sources of research info for the rationale of their protocols. To my knowledge, the purpose of using multiple, complimentary antibiotics from different classes is for the purpose of targeting chlamydia in its variant forms (Including cryptic forms). Treating with just one antimicrobial and/or improper dosing schedules can be a big mistake for some infections, as it may ...

TS: When were you diagnosed as HIV positive? What was your initial reaction?JS: I was diagnosed with HIV in 2011 after learning that my partner, Jessica was living with HIV. I met her in 2007 and she didnt disclose her status to me out of stigma and fear of being rejected and although I already knew she was living with HIV because I found her prescriptions for HIV medicines, I decided not to hold it against her because I cared for her deeply. When we started seeing each other she made the mistake of throwing her antiretrovirals away and when I discovered she did so, I strongly urged her to tell me the truth because if she was living with HIV as I believed, the last thing I wanted was for her to fall ill because she was not on treatment. Well, my concern became a reality when after four years, she ended up in the hospital with pneumocystis pneumonia. Fortunately she got better and returned on treatment and I reassured her that if after testing, I was also found to be positive, we would deal with ...
The long-term goal of my research has been to understand the role of key active site residues in the mechanism of molecular recognition among various classes of proteins. The primary focus has been study of folate-dependent enzyme pathways, in particular dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR). These enzymes from pathogenic Pneumocystis species are of interest for the design of selective inhibitors for the treatment of AIDS-related pneumonia. Analysis of the structural data from several classes of protein has revealed a great degree of conformational flexibility for ligand binding that result in novel modes of binding to the same active site. Understanding the role of such flexibility has aided in the design of new scaffolds for inhibitor design. Additionally, my lab has the expertise to carry out the necessary molecular biology experiments to clone, express and purify proteins for crystallographic study using both bacterial and insect cell host systems. We have a long-standing, successful collaboration ...
