• antibodies
  • Precipitating IgG antibodies against fungal or avian antigens can be detected in the laboratory using the traditional Ouchterlony immunodiffusion method wherein 'precipitin' lines form on agar plate. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ImmunoCAP technology has replaced this time consuming, labor-intensive method with their automated CAP assays and FEIA (Fluorescence enzyme immunoassay) that can detect IgG antibodies against Aspergillus fumigatus (Farmer's lung or for ABPA) or avian antigens (Bird Fancier's Lung). (wikipedia.org)
  • These are:[citation needed] Bacterial or fungal sepsis Necrotizing enterocolitis, circulating neutrophil population depleted due to migration into the intestines and peritoneum Alloimmune neonatal neutropenia, the mother produces antibodies against fetal neutrophils Inherited autoimmune neutropenia, mother has autoimmune neutropenia Autoimmune neutropenia of infancy, the sensitization to self-antigens The pathophysiology of neutropenia can be divided into congenital and acquired. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acquired neutropenia (immune-associated neutropenia) is due to anti-neutrophil antibodies that target neutrophil-specific antigens, ultimately altering neutrophil function. (wikipedia.org)
  • PolysacDB: The PolysacDB is dedicated to provide comprehensive information about antigenic polysaccharides of microbial origin (bacterial and fungal), antibodies against them, proposed epitopes, structural detail, proposed functions, assay system, cross-reactivity related information and much more.

  • anti-fungal
  • Edouard Drouhet (June 18, 1919 - January 1, 2000) was a physician, biologist, and medical mycologist who played a key role in understanding how anti-fungal agents such as ketoconazole and amphotericin-B can be used as therapeutic treatments in humans with superficial or deep-seated mycoses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Case mortality in fungal pneumonias can be as high as 90% in immunocompromised patients, though immunocompetent patients generally respond well to anti-fungal therapy. (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)
  • antibody
  • It has been suggested that absorption of trichophyton fungal antigens can give rise to immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody production, sensitization of the airways, and symptomatic asthma and rhinitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • imperfect state) anastomosis (pl. anastomoses) anthracnoes antibiotic antibody antigen antiseptic apothecium The apothecium is an open, cuplike, or saucer-shaped sexual fungal fruiting body (ascocarp) containing asci. (wikipedia.org)
  • microbial
  • Nail dust collected during foot care procedures performed in office settings has been found to contain keratin, keratin hydrolysates, microbial debris, and viable fungal elements, including dermatophytes (most commonly Trichophyton rubrum) and saprotrophs. (wikipedia.org)
  • exposure
  • B-cell anergy can be induced by exposure to soluble circulating antigen, and is often marked by a downregulation of surface IgM expression and partial blockade of intracellular signaling pathways. (wikipedia.org)
  • fever
  • 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. (wikipedia.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)
  • function
  • In AntigenDB, a database entry contains information regarding the sequence, structure, origin, etc. of an antigen with additional information such as B and T-cell epitopes, MHC binding, function, gene-expression and post translational modifications, where available. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • The cases included a wide range of mycoses such as candidiasis, histoplasmosis, African blastomycosis, mycetoma, fungal arthritis, and newly discovered cases of cutaneous, ocular and osteoarticular manifestations of candidiasis in young heroin addicts. (wikipedia.org)
