A Mechanism of Susceptibility to Mucormycosis in Diabetic Ketoacidosis Transferrin and Iron Availability
The defect in host defense that makes the diabetic ketoacidotic (DKA) patient susceptible to mucormycosis has not been identified. Sera from 10 DKA patients and three normal volunteers were testedExpand

Immunologic susceptibility to chronic dermatophytosis.
Subjects extensively and chronically infected with dermatophytes were shown to be atopic by demonstration of multiple immediate skin test sensitivities and elevated levels of serum IgE. Three atopicExpand

Transferrin, iron, and dermatophytes. I. Serum dematophyte inhibitory component definitively identified as unsaturated transferrin.
The factor present in normal human serum which inhibits growth of dematophytic fungi is characterized and identified. Serum inhibitory factor (SIF) is nondialyzable, heat stable at 56 degrees C. forExpand

An animal model for altering the irritability threshold of normal skin *
Theory behind conditioned hyperirritability (autoeczematization) predicts the lowering of the irritation threshold in the presence of a pre‐existing dermatitis. We have attempted to develop an animalExpand
