Abstract Two new compounds [1-2] were purified from ethyl acetate fraction of Quercus incana. The structure of these compounds is mainly established by using advanced spectroscopic technique such as UV, IR, one-dimensional (ID) and two-dimensional (2D) NMR techniques, and EI mass. The structural formula was deduced to be 4-hydroxydecanoic acid  and 4-hydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl) pentanoic acid . Both isolated compounds were tested for their antimicrobial potential and showed promising antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus. PMID: 29789786 [PubMed - in process]
Otomycosis is a fungal infection in the outer ear canal, usually caused by the Aspergillus fungus. It can be painful, causing inflammation, flaking skin, and ear discharge. Otomycosis usually responds well to antifungal eardrops or creams. Learn about otomycosis here and how it can become chronic.

In current study, an endophytic fungus, Aspergillus flavus CHS1 was isolated from Chenopodium album Roots. CHS1 was initially screened for growth promoting activities like siderphore, phosphate solubilization, and the production of indole acetic...

Regulations for maximum limits and mitigation are in development by the Codex/FAO. Fungi from rice’s rhizosphere are a potential tool for As-mitigation. Two fungi genera (Aspergillus sp. and Penicillium sp.) were applied in soils (background −Bk...
ConclusionAlthough the number of fungal species causing CNS mycosis is increasing, only some possess well-defined treatment standards (e.g., cryptococcal meningitis and CNS aspergillosis). The early diagnosis of fungal infection, accompanied by identification of the etiological factor, is needed to allow the selection of effective therapy in patients with FIs-CNS and limit their high mortality.
