Summary Fungal sensitisation in adults is associated with severe asthma but prevalence and clinical significance of fungal sensitisation remains unclear in paediatric population. The aim of this study was to study the association of fungal sensitisation with disease severity in children with persistent asthma. One hundred children with persistent asthma in age group 7‐15 years, symptom duration>2 years and forced expiratory volume in first second>50% of expected were enrolled. Skin prick test (SPT) to 8 fungal antigens and total serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) were done. Fungal sensitisation was described as...

Methyl (3-hydroxy-4-(2-hydroxy-6-methylheptan-2-yl)benzoyl)glycinate (1), a new sydonic acid derivative with glycinate, together with sydonic acid (2), sydowic acid (3), and 7-deoxy-7,14-didehydrosydonic acid (4), were isolated from a marine-derived Aspergillus sydowii strain CUGB-F126. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis, including high-resolution mass spectroscopy, and 1D and 2D NMR techniques. All of these compounds did not show inhibitory activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans.

We studied the influences of enzyme concentration (0.02–0.1%. w/v), temperature (40–70 °C), pH (4.5–8), lactose concentration (5–40%, w/v) and foam architecture reaction media on formation of GOS. The total GOS increased from about 7 to 23 (wt.% of initial lactose) with an increase in lactose from ...

The objective of the current study is to investigate the hydrolysis of pectinaceous matter in guava juice and to model the depectinization kinetics using commercial pectinase from Aspergillus niger. The procedure involves enzymatic treatment of guava juice at 45 °C with enzyme concentration (% w/w) 0.033, 0.055, 0.078 and 0.1. The degree of hydrolysis of pectinaceous matter and the rate of enzymatic reaction are determined. The results show an increase in the degree of hydrolysis with time for each enzyme concentration. Depectinization kinetics reveal allosteric behavior and is modeled using the Hill Equation. The...

Chronic Pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) is a well described spectrum of the disease caused by the fungi belonging to the Aspergillus species first described in 1842 as a complication of tuberculous cavities. Advances in thoracic surgery and advances of antifungal therapy in the late 1900s led to the first cure[1]. Aspergillosis is a disease process that varies based on the level of immunosupression; angioinvasive aspergillosis is present in a setting of profound immunosupression and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis in a hyperimmune setting.
