Pseudallescheria boydii arthritis of the knee developed in a 32-year-old immunocompetent man 2 years after a compound patellar fracture contaminated with soil. No other potential portal of entry was identified, suggesting that the fungus remained latent for 2 years. Pseudallescheria arthritis often occurs after a prolonged latency period, causing minimal(More)
In order to study the short-term ecotoxicity of metals to the freshwater mussel Dreissena polymorpha, the effects of Cu, Zn and Cd on the filtration rate of this mussel were determined in laboratory experiments. Filtration rate was chosen as the endpoint, because it is a sensitive sublethal parameter compared to mortality and it is an important parameter(More)
In order to evaluate ecological consequences of the long-term presence of metals in aquatic ecosystems, we investigated the filtration rate and survival of zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) during chronic exposure to Cu and Cd. The filtration rate was measured once a week in laboratory experiments lasting 9-11 weeks. The lowest Cu concentration tested(More)
The Centers for Disease Control currently report cervical, vulvar, vaginal, anal and some head and neck cancers as human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers. Only cervical cancer is listed amongst acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) defining illnesses. All of these cancers may represent progression of the immunocompromised state with the inability(More)
