Studies on the genus Basidiobolus with reclassification of the species pathogenic for man.
The etiologic agent of human subcutaneous phycomycosis was found to be a species of Basidiobolus which is characterized by the lack of a distinctive odor, by being able to grow well at human body
Passive immunization of mice against Candida albicans.
TLDR
Passive immunization conferred demonstrable protection, inasmuch as the length of survival of those animals that died was considerably extended, and 33% of the animals survived the entire period of observation.
A new species of Microsporum pathogenic to man and animals.
TLDR
A new dermatophyte species, Microsporum vanbreuseghemii, is described, isolated from ringworm of a Malabar squirrel, a dog, and 2 human beings.
Antigenic relationships between the fungus causing subcutaneous phycomycosis and saprophytic isolates of Basidiobolus meristosporus and B. ranarum.
TLDR
It is concluded that the fungus thus far isolated from human subcutaneous phycomycosis should be identified as B. meristosporus.
The Apionidae of Israel and the Sinai Peninsula (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea)
TLDR
Twenty-six species in thirty genera of Apionidae are recorded from Israel and the Sinai Peninsula, together with data on their general and local distribution, host plants, habitat, phenology and parasitoids, including five newly-described species.
Active Immunization of Mice Against Candida albicans ∗
TLDR
Although not all of the vaccinated mice survived challenge, a significant degree of resistance was conferred since fewer deaths occurred among vaccinated animals.
EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE ON GROWTH AS A DIFFERENTIATING CHARACTERISTIC BETWEEN HUMAN AND NONHUMAN ISOLATES OF BASIDIOBOLUS SPECIES
TLDR
In studying the immunological and pathological properties of B. ranarum isolated from human and nonhuman sources, a fortuitous observation led to an investigation of the temperatures at which growth occurred, the results of which are reported herein.
CHARACTERIZATION OF THE PYROGENICITY OF CANDIDA ALBICANS, SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE, AND CRYPTOCOCCUS NEOFORMANS
TLDR
It was concluded that the particulate nature of the yeast cell did not contribute to the induction of fever, for latex particles of a similar size were nonpyrogenic.
Human infection due to a new Microsporum species.
TLDR
The course of the disease in the 2 human patients with comments on the differential morphology of the 2 dermatophytes, K. ajelloi and M. vanbreuseghemii, are reported herein.
A METHOD FOR THE DARK FIELD EXAMINATION OF PUS FOR SPIROCHAETA PALLIDA
The visible contamination of a specimen of serum with cellular elements and debris renders that specimen almost useless for direct dark field examination for Spirochaeta pallida. Various technics
