ConclusionsRNA deconvolution of the immune infiltrates of pituitary adenomas using CIBERSORTx suggests that most pituitary adenomas comprise of M2 macrophages, but each adenoma subtype has a unique immune landscape. This may have implications in targeting each adenoma subtype with different immunotherapies.

In the fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus, resistance to azole antifungals is often linked to mutations in CYP51A, a gene that encodes the azole antifungal drug target lanosterol 14α-demethylase. The aim of this study was to investigate whether similar changes could be associated with azole resistance in a Malaysian Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC) isolate collection. Most (11 of 15) clinical FSSC isolates were Neocosmospora keratoplastica and the majority (6 of 10) of environmental isolates were Neocosmospora suttoniana strains. All 25 FSSC isolates had high minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) for itra...

Aflatoxins are the highly toxic secondary metabolites of certain fungi, being mainly produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxins are classified as group 1 category carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). A large number of food commodities are reported to be contaminated with aflatoxins. Tea is the world’s second most consumed beverage and the consumption of tea is increasing day by day. Besides being a source of several health promoting substances, tea leaves are also reported to be contaminated with aflatoxins. However, not a single study is reported from Pak...

Abstract Aspergilloma, also known as mycetoma or fungus ball, is the most common manifestation of pulmonary involvement by Aspergillus species. The fungal ball typically forms within preexisting cavities of the lungs. Diagnosis requires both radiographic evidence along with serologic or microbiologic evidence of Aspergillus species involvement. While clinical features such as hemoptysis, chest pain, shortness of breath, cough, and fever are helpful in diagnosis, they are non-specific symptoms. Surgery is currently the mainstay of treatment for aspergilloma but is associated with considerable mortality and morbidit...

Aspergillus spp. is a ubiquitous mold found commonly in our environment that can cause a spectrum of pulmonary disorders ranging from a hypersensitivity reaction to an acutely invasive disease with significant mortality. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis results from airway hypersensitivity from aspergillus colonization almost exclusively in patients with asthma and cystic fibrosis. Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis typically present in immunocompetent patients with underlying lung pathology.

Authors: Papachristou SG, Iosifidis E, Sipsas NV, Gamaletsou MN, Walsh TJ, Roilides E Abstract Introduction: Osteoarticular fungal infections (OAFIs) complicate the clinical course of high-risk patients, including immunosuppressed individuals. Their management, however, despite being intricate, is governed by evidence arising from sub-optimal quality research, such as case series. Guidelines are scarce and when present result in recommendations based on low quality evidence. Furthermore, the differences between the management of immunocompromised and immunocompetent patients are not distinct. This is a narrative re...

AbstractThe present research was conducted to assess the role of aeromycoflora around world heritage sites of Taxila and its relation with biodeterioration of stone monuments. The aerial mycoflora of six archaeological sites was recorded for one year to monitor the seasonal variations and transportation of fungal spores. Thirty-two fungal species belonging to twenty genera were isolated throughout the whole sampling period. The fungal generaAlternaria, Aspergillus,Cladosporium,Fusarium,Mucor,Helminthosporium,Curvularia andPenicillium were prevalent, whereas at species levelAlternaria alternata was dominant followed byAsper...
