  • species
  • The distribution of these fungal species in nature and the knowledge of how cell wall polysaccharides and glycoconjugates structure vary, may contribute to the better understanding and the elucidation of the pathology caused by this fungus. (nih.gov)
  • It made sense to use the A. brassicicola genome resources, our bioinformatics infrastructure, and our molecular techniques to aid in the identification of the fungal products from the closely related species A. alternata that trigger the response in CRS patients. (eurekalert.org)

  • fumigatus
  • This study indicates that the radioimmunoassay for A. fumigatus antigen is a highly specific and moderately sensitive serodiagnostic test for invasive pulmonary aspergillosis. (annals.org)
  • diagnosis
  • However, such tests are not only insensitive but take time to develop which is a major drawback because studies have shown that slow diagnosis of fungal pneumonia is linked to high mortality. (wikipedia.org)
  • lipid
  • One case also reported the absence of CD1, a MHC-like glycoprotein involved in the presentation of lipid antigens to T cells, in a CD25 deficient patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medical treatment consists of prolonged intravenous therapy (for 6-8 weeks or longer) with the anti-fungal drug Amphotericin B, either in its conventional or lipid formulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • allergic
  • While invasive aspergillosis is a serious disease that may occur in immunocompromised individuals, most fungal diseases are associated with less mortality but an ongoing morbidity as is the case with allergic diseases in humans [ 16 ]. (hindawi.com)
