We evaluated the diagnostic value of antibody to Blastomyces dermatitidis A precipitin arcs for identifying B. dermatitidis cultures by the exoantigen technique with 88 isolates from the United States and Canada, 12 from Africa, and 1 each from India and Israel. In addition, we studied 190 mycelial-form isolates of other fungi which could be confused antigenically or morphologically with B. dermatitidis. Antigen extracts from all of the North American isolates, the Indian and Israeli isolates… CONTINUE READING
