Malachite Green Agar 2.5 ppm (MGA 2.5) is a potent selective medium for isolation and enumeration of Fusarium spp. It has been tested with pure and mixed cultures as well as in naturally contaminated samples. The recoveries of Fusarium species in MGA 2.5 were the same as the recoveries obtained in Nash and Snyder medium. However, this medium is a more(More)
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is an excellent tool for detection of circulating antibodies against the NC16A portion of BP180 antigen. We compared the sensitivity and specificity of a commercially available BP180-NC16a domain ELISA with that of an indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) testing in the evaluation of bullous pemphigoid (BP) and(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective was to assess the relationship between enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) values of desmoglein (Dsg) 1 and Dsg3 antibodies and indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) values of anti-epithelial antibodies with disease activity in patients with pemphigus. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a retrospective study, we analyzed 353 serum samples taken(More)
Nash and Snyder medium and malachite green agar 2.5 ppm medium, a new selective culture medium designed in our laboratory, were challenged with pure cultures of Fusarium moniliforme strains and two different mixed-conidium suspensions, which included rapidly spreading fungi, for their utility in the isolation and enumeration of F. moniliforme. From the(More)
