The soil, particularly, has been recognized as a reservoir of those fungi responsible for most of the mycotic infections of man, and the presence of pathogenic fungi in a variety of terrestrial environments is revealed. Expand
THE EFFECT OF SEA WATER AND SODIUM CHLORIDE ON THE GROWTH OF FUNGI PATHOGENIC TO MAN.
Comparative electrophoresis and numerical taxonomy of some Candida species.
Isolates of each species, except C. albicans and C. stellatoidea, joined initially in a single cluster prior to linking interspecifically, and could not be separated by comparative disc electrophoresis. Expand
Cyclophosphamide in the treatment of pemphigus vulgaris and bullous pemphigoid.
This preliminary study indicates that cyclophosphamide is an effective agent in the management of pemphigus vulgaris and bullous pEMphigoid. Expand
Bloom's syndrome. The syndrome of telangiectatic erythema and growth retardation.
Bloom's syndrome is a genodermatosis characterized by a telangiectatic erythema of the face beginning in infancy, sensitivity to sunlight, small stature, and a low birth weight after a full-term… Expand
THE RAPID FORMATION IN SERUM OF FILAMENTS BY CANDIDA ALBICANS.

- 1 March 1965
The blastospores of Candida albicans form filaments or “germ tubes” within two to three hours when incubated at 37° C in the presence of serum or plasma derived from humans and animals, and little information is available concerning the particular property or properties of serum responsible for the formation of filaments. Expand
Generation time of Candida albicans in synchronized and nonsynchronized cultures
The generation time of the synchronized cells was compared with those of nonsynchronized cells cultured in Sabouraud broth, Medium 199, and a synthetic synchronization medium and the generation time in shake cultures of nons synchronized cells was uniformly shorter than that of the corresponding aerated cultures.

Acute cerebral phycomycosis (mucormycosis). Report of a pediatric patient successfully treated with amphotericin B and cycloheximide and review of the pertinent literature.
A classical example of acute cerebral phycomycosis in a 15-year-old girl who was debilitated by diabetic acidosis is presented and it is suggested that control of the basic disease, adequate surgical drainage, and the administration of antifungal agents should be effective in lowering this high mortality rate. Expand
Pemphigus and other diseases. Results of indirect intercellular immunofluorescence.
The intercellular pattern of fluorescence was demonstrated in 24 of 75 patients with diseases other than pemphigus and when the anti-B isohemagglutinin titer was reduced or abolished, after absorption with B substance, the inter cellular pattern was reduced considerably or abolished. Expand
