A collaborative comparison of macro- and microdilution antifungal susceptibility tests was performed in five laboratories. MICs of amphotericin B, fluconazole, flucytosine, and ketoconazole were determined in all five centers against 95 coded isolates of Candida spp., Cryptococcus neoformans, and Torulopsis glabrata. A standard protocol with the following(More)
We have cloned and sequenced the cDNA encoding an immunoreactive protein from the pathogenic fungus Coccidioides immitis which stimulates human T cells and has been associated with protective vaccines in mice. The transcript contained an open reading frame encoding 194 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 19.5 kDa, a 151 base 5' untranslated(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the dermal and epidermal alterations associated with wound healing in wounds treated with papain urea copper chlorophyllin (PUC), papain-urea, copper chlorophyllin, or urea base ointment and compare these with moist wound care using a porcine full-thickness infected wound model. All the wounds were evaluated(More)
We performed antifungal susceptibility tests with cilofungin (LY121019), amphotericin B, and flucytosine against 38 strains of yeasts from patients with esophagitis or fungemia either before, during, or after treatment with cilofungin. Tests were performed using a macrobroth dilution method similar to that proposed by the National Committee for Clinical(More)
