Waterborne Exophiala species causing disease in cold-blooded animals
It is concluded that animals with moist skins, i.e. those being waterborne and those possessing sweat glands, are more susceptible to black yeast infection, and melanin and the ability to assimilate alkylbenzenes are purported general virulence factors.
Aspergillus and aspergilloses in wild and domestic animals: a global health concern with parallels to human disease.
A comprehensive overview of the most common infections reported by Aspergillus species and the corresponding diseases in various types of animals is presented.
Black Yeasts and Their Filamentous Relatives: Principles of Pathogenesis and Host Defense
The pathogenesis and host defense factors for these fungi and their severity, chronicity, and subsequent impact on treatment and prevention of diseases in human or animal hosts are discussed.
Mapping 123 million neonatal, infant and child deaths between 2000 and 2017
A high-resolution, global atlas of mortality of children under five years of age between 2000 and 2017 highlights subnational geographical inequalities in the distribution, rates and absolute counts of child deaths by age.
Phaeohyphomycoses, Emerging Opportunistic Diseases in Animals
An overview of the more commonly reported and recurring black fungi and the corresponding diseases in different types of animals is presented.
Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and mortality of HIV, 1980–2017, and forecasts to 2030, for 195 countries and territories: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of
Despite progress in reducing HIV-related mortality over the past decade, slow decreases in incidence, combined with the current context of stagnated funding for related interventions, mean that many countries are not on track to reach the 2020 and 2030 global targets for reduction in incidence and mortality.
Molecular Characterization and In Vitro Antifungal Susceptibility of 316 Clinical Isolates of Dermatophytes in Iran
Analysis of data revealed a significant increase in the frequency of A.benhamiae, which definitely warrants further investigation to explore source of this infection in south of Iran, and terbinafine was the most effective antifungal against all isolates, in vitro.
