Could Candida Overgrowth Be Involved in the Pathophysiology of Autism?
The purpose of this review is to summarize the current acquiredknowledge of Candida overgrowth in the intestine as a possible etiology of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The influence of Candida sp.


D-arabinitol--a marker for invasive candidiasis.
Further investigation of various patient groups is needed to establish the applicability of the 'arabinitol method' in the diagnostic battery for invasive Candida infections.
L-Arabinosuria: a new defect in human pentose metabolism.
A female patient, the first child of healthy non-consanguineous parents, presented at the age of 16 months with delayed motor development and facial dysmorphism, and it is presumed that L-arabitol dehydrogenase is deficient in her patient.
Urined-Arabinitol/l-Arabinitol Ratio in Diagnosis of Invasive Candidiasis in Newborn Infants
Urine DA/LA ratio determination is a rapid test and can be used for newborns and is possibly more sensitive than fungal blood cultures in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis and can also been used for monitoring the effect of antifungal treatment.
Laboratory aids in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis
Application of the techniques of molecular biology for typing and detection of fungal pathogens has expanded the understanding of candidal infections and may offer the most sensitive and specific means of diagnosing invasive candidiasis.
Increased urinary excretion of analogs of Krebs cycle metabolites and arabinose in two brothers with autistic features.
A marked increase in analogs of Krebs cycle metabolites was found in the urine of two brothers with autistic features, including citramalic, tartaric, and 3-oxoglutaric acids and compounds tentatively identified as a citric acid analog.
Candida arabinofermentans, a new L-arabinose fermenting yeast
Phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequences from the D1/D2 domain of large subunit (26S) ribosomal DNA places C. arabinofermentans among the methanol-assimilating yeasts and most closely related to Candida ovalis.
Fermentation of carbohydrate in rat ileal excreta is enhanced with cecal inocula compared with fecal inocula.
It is concluded that using cecal microflora as the inoculum source provides a more accurate index of fermentation during transit through the large bowel and that noncellulosic and storage polysaccharides of the plant cell wall are utilized before cellulose.
Comparison of the toxicity of fluconazole and other azole antifungal drugs to murine and human granulocyte-macrophage progenitor cells in vitro.
There was a close correlation between the murine and human log IC50 values of the drugs, suggesting that cultures of murine bone marrow may be suitable to predict the in-vitro toxicity of azole antifungals to human cfu-gm.
Ileal digestibility and urinary excretion of D-xylose and L-arabinose in ileostomized adult roosters.
An experiment with ileostomized adult roosters was conducted to determine the ileal digestibility and urinary excretion of D-xylose and L-arabinose and it was found that both pentose sugars were partly excreted in the urine.
The missing link in the fungal L-arabinose catabolic pathway, identification of the L-xylulose reductase gene.
Overexpression of all enzymes of the L-arabinose pathway in S. Cerevisiae led to growth of S. cerevisiae on L-Arabinose, and it was shown that the pathway is active in a heterologous host.
