Molecularly targeted optical contrast agents have the potential to enable surgeons to visualize specific molecular markers that can help improve surgical precision and thus outcomes. Fluorescently quenched substrates can be used to highlight tumor lesions by targeting proteases that are highly abundant in the tumor microenvironment. However, the majority of(More)
A dermatophyte-specific PCR-reverse line blot (PCR-RLB) assay based on internal transcribed sequences was developed. This assay allows the rapid detection and identification of nine clinically relevant species within the three dermatophyte genera Trichophyton, Microsporum and Epidermophyton in nail, skin and hair samples within 1 day. Analysis of 819(More)
We developed a dermatophyte-specific single-tube real-time PCR assay based on internal transcribed sequences. This assay allows the rapid detection and identification of 11 clinically relevant species within the three dermatophyte genera Trichophyton, Microsporum and Epidermophyton in nail, skin and hair samples within a few hours. Analysis of 145 clinical(More)
