Aspergillus spp. are a group of filamentous molds that were first described due to a perceived similarity to an aspergillum, or liturgical device used to sprinkle holy water, when viewed under a microscope. Although commonly inhaled due to their ubiquitous nature within the environment, an invasive fungal infection (IFI) is a rare outcome that is often… (More)
Rates of O(2) consumption (.VO(2)) were determined for adult northern leopard frogs (Rana pipiens) submerged at 3 degrees C at water PO(2)s (P(w)O(2)) ranging from 0-160 mmHg. The critical O(2) tension (P(c)) was 36.4 mmHg. Hematocrit and blood levels of PO(2), glucose, lactate, pH, [Na(+)], [K(+)], and osmolality were determined for frogs submerged for two… (More)
This study assessed the utility of the circumplex model in predicting depression among 108 rural youth. Only cohesion was linearly related to depression, but the r of -.23 may underestimate the association if the variables are not linearly related.
The authors of the published paper  would like to correct Table 1. The sixth row in the second column should have been Amphotericin B Lipid Complex (ABLC). Therefore, Table 1 should read as follows: Table 1. Treatment recommendations for invasive aspergillosis.
Ustilago, a common fungal parasite of grains, is infrequently isolated as a pathogen in humans. We describe a case of Ustilago echinata infection following an open distal tibia fracture, review the current literature of this genus as a cause of invasive fungal infection in humans, and discuss management issues.
