Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A normally saprophytic mitosporic Chaetothyriales fungal genus. Infections in humans include phaeohyphomycosis, peritonitis, and chromoblastomycosis. Exophiala jeanselmei (previously Phialophora jeanselmei) is an etiological agent of MYCETOMA.
A genus of onygenacetous mitosporic fungi whose perfect state is Ajellomyces (see ONYGENALES). The species Blastomyces dermatitidis (perfect state Ajellomyces dermatitidis) causes blastomycosis.
Substances of fungal origin that have antigenic activity.
Structures within the nucleus of fungal cells consisting of or containing DNA, which carry genetic information essential to the cell.
Suspensions of attenuated or killed fungi administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious fungal disease.
To evaluate the in vitro efficacy of common antifungal drugs, as well as the interactions of caspofungin with voriconazole, amphotericin B, or itraconazole against the pathogenic black yeast Exophiala...
The in vitro activities of eight antifungal agents were determined against clinical (n = 63 genotype A, n = 3 genotype B) and environmental (n = 2 genotype A, n = 13 genotype B) strains of Exophiala d...
Mass growth of dark fungal biofilms on water taps and associated habitats was observed in various German drinking water distribution systems recently. Customers of affected drinking water systems are...
Melanonychia is a black, tan, or brown streak within the nail plate subsequent to activation of melanocytes in the nail matrix. We present a case of a Haitian girl who presented with transverse me...
Evaluation of the Association of Polymorphisms in the Innate Immune System With the Risk for Blastomycosis Dermatitidis Infection in Patients Not Infected With HIV and Complications Associated With Blastomycosis Dermatitidis Infection
Innate immunity plays an important role for fungal recognition and initiation of fungicidal activity. We hypothesize that subtle differences in different molecules of innate immunity may...
