We analyzed the performance of (1, 3)-Beta-D-glucan (measurement by the alkaline-kinetic chromogenic Limulus method (FUNGITEC G test-MK, Fungitec) and the kinetic turbidimetric Limulus method [Beta-Glucan test WAKO, Wako]) and we carried out Aspergillus galactomannan antigen detection (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, ELISA test) for the early diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis in patients with hematological diseases at the time of febrile episodes of unknown origin that did not respond to… CONTINUE READING
