Extracellular DNA traps, commonly found in mucus plugs of patients with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, are released by eosinophils in response to Aspergillus fumigatus
Conclusions: The biological effects of Tem could significantly affect IPA infection host immune regulation, which depended on the activation of mTOR signaling pathway by IL-12. PMID: 28924369 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: We established a new murine model of chronic infection of hyphae to mimic the formation of CPA, and provide a new marker for different immune responses to hyphae and conidia. PMID: 28923131 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
in DS Abstract We have identified the first case of a fks1 hot spot 1 point mutation causing echinocandin resistance in a clinical Aspergillus fumigatus isolate recovered from a chronic pulmonary aspergillosis patient with an aspergilloma who first failed azole and polyene therapy, and then subsequently failed micafungin treatment.

er O Abstract The incidence of azole resistance in Aspergillus species has increased over the past years, most importantly for Aspergillus fumigatus. This is partially attributable to the global spread of only a few resistance alleles through the environment. Secondary resistance is a significant clinical concern, as invasive aspergillosis with drug-susceptible strains is already difficult to treat, and exclusion of azole-based antifungals from prophylaxis or first-line treatment of invasive aspergillosis in high-risk patients would dramatically limit drug choices, thus increasing mortality rates for immunocomprom...
