Study of the in vitro interaction of mouse peritoneal macrophages with C. albicans has revealed that these macrophages, though easily phagocytizing C. albicans blastospores, are incapable of destroying the fungus. The phagocytic, but not candidostatic, activity of these macrophages has been found to depend on the conditions on their cultivation, as well as(More)
The examination of 90 patients with superficial and visceral candidiasis, as well as Candida carriers, has revealed that the heavy contamination of the body with fungi of the genus Candida is accompanied by the specific transformation of the immune system, manifested by differences in the character of sensitization to Candida antigens: in the patients with(More)
The examination of 73 patients with superficial and visceral candidiasis and Candida-carriers yielded no data to the effect that the increased activity of opportunistic fungi of the genus Candida in the body was preceded by organic lesions in the T- and B-systems of lymphocytes. Only in 16 patients who had visceral candidiasis for 8-12 years with combined(More)
To compare the clinical picture and the immunological characteristics, 58 candidiasis patients differing by the severity and dissemination of the disease were examined. Chronic candidiasis of the skin and mucous membranes, the most severe and disseminated form of the disease, is associated with a decrease in the number of T-lymphocytes and changes in their(More)
