Publication date: February 2019Source: Chinese Journal of Natural Medicines, Volume 17, Issue 2Author(s): Xiao-Wei LUO, Yun LIN, Yong-Jun LU, Xue-Feng ZHOU, Yong-Hong LIUAbstractTwo new isomeric modified tripeptides, aspergillamides C and D (compounds 1 and 2), together with fifteen known compounds (compounds 3–17), were obtained from the marine sponge-derived fungus Aspergillus terreus SCSIO 41008. The structures of the new compounds, including absolute configurations, were determined by extensive analyses of spectroscopic data (NMR, MS, UV, and IR) and comparisons between the calculated and experimental electronic ...

In this report, engineered silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized and characterized by single particle Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry. Then, their effectiveness in the control of the growth of the main aflatoxigenic and ochratoxigenic species affecting foods and aflatoxins (AFs) and ochratoxin A (OTA) production was studied. The target species and their associated mycotoxins were Aspergillus flavus (AFB1 and AFB2), A. parasiticus (AFB1, AFB2, AFG1 and AFG2), A. carbonarius, A. niger, A. ochraceus, A. steynii, A. westerdijkiae and Penicillium verrucosum (OTA). Spore suspensions supplemented with AgNPs (...

In conclusion, individual fungal sensitization rate was higher in asthmatics compared to non-asthmatics. Extract-based tests, especially SPTs, were most sensitive, but component-based tests covered 80% of extract-based serological sensitization to Alternaria and Aspergillus.

Publication date: Available online 20 February 2019Source: Phytochemistry LettersAuthor(s): Izabela Grzegorczyk-Karolak, Łukasz Kuźma, Paweł Lisiecki, Anna KissAbstractDifferent in vitro cultures of the Turkish origin medicinal plant species, Salvia viridis, were estimated in order to investigate their potential for the accumulation of phenolic compounds. Among the seventeen detected compounds, thirteen phenolic acid derivatives and four phenylethanoids were identified in extracts from shoot and/or callus cultures using the UPLC-DAD/ESI-MS method. The accumulation of the compound depended on the type of culture (callus,...

Airway infections are largely responsible for the morbidity and mortality of individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF). The CF microbiological landscape has undoubtedly shifted over the past two decades, with an increase in the recovery of filamentous fungi; Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) and Scedosporium species being the most prevalent [1,2]. In response, the CF community has raised several questions about the clinical significance of Af and other fungi detected in respiratory cultures, in the absence of an allergic host response.

This study determined the bacterial and fungal concentrations in PM2.5 and their inhalation health risks in an industrial vicinity in South Africa. Samples of PM2.5 collected on a 47-mm glass fiber filter during winter and summer months were analysed for bacterial and fungal content using standard methods. The health risks from inhalation of bioaerosols were done by estimating the age-specific dose rate. The concentration of bacteria (168–378 CFU/m3) was higher than fungi (58–155 CFU/m3). Bacterial and fungal concentrations in PM2.5 were lower in winter than in the summer season. Bacteria identified in ...

ConclusionsClotrimazole cream treatment is more effective than Tolnaftate for uncomplicated otomycosis. More studies are needed to corroborate our results.ResumoIntroduçãoOtomicose, uma infecção fúngica do canal auditivo externo, é prevalente em climas quentes e úmidos. No entanto, a literatura não apresenta evidências suficientes sobre os diferentes tratamentos antifúngicos tópicos. O tolnaftato é um antifúngico tópico descrito como eficaz no tratamento da otomicose; entretanto, sua eficácia não está sufic...
