Abstract

Background: The Blastomyces antigen concentration in urine (BACU) test is used to diagnose blastomycosis and monitor treatment in dogs. It is unknown if a higher BACU is associated with shorter survival. Objectives: To determine if the magnitude of BACU before treatment is associated with survival...

AbstractFull Text

Meningoencephalitis (ME) is a common inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system in dogs. Clinically, ME has both infectious and non-infectious causes. In the present study, a multiplex quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (mqPCR) panel was optimized for the detection of eight ...

Abstract

Blastomycosis is a systemic fungal disease of humans and other animals produced by the thermally dimorphic fungal organism, Blastomyces dermatitidis. Recent studies have focused on the utilization of antibody and antigen detection in the development of immunoassays for the diagnosis of...

Abstract

Pulmonary mycoses are difficult to treat and detrimental to patients. Fungal infections modulate the lung immune response, induce goblet cell hyperplasia and metaplasia, and mucus hypersecretion in the airways. Excessive mucus clogs small airways and reduces pulmonary function by decreasing oxygen...

Abstract

Invasive fungal infections (IFI) cause devastating morbidity and mortality, with the number of IFIs more than tripling since 1979. Our laboratories were the first to demonstrate that radiolabeled microorganism-specific monoclonal antibodies are highly effective for treatment of experimental fungal, ...

Abstract

Objective - To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for antibodies to a recombinant Blastomyces adhesin-1 repeat antigen (rBAD-1) to aid in the diagnosis of blastomycosis in dogs and compare the findings with results from other tests used for this purpose. Design...

Abstract

Background: Several studies have shown that Blastomyces dermatitidis, the etiologic agent of blastomycosis, is a genetically diverse pathogen. Blastomycosis is a significant health issue in humans and other mammals. Veterinary and human isolates matched with epidemiological case data from the same...

AbstractFull Text

Blastomycosis and histoplasmosis manifest as lung and systemic fungal infections in mammals caused by Histoplasma capsulatum, and Blastomyces dermatitidis. These infections exhibit cross reactivity of antibodies which makes a correct diagnosis potentially elusive. The purpose of this study was to...
