An established diagnosis of invasive aspergillus is seldom achieved premortem. Conventional laboratory diagnostic methods such as culture and microscopy, although very useful when positive, are insensitive and time-consuming, resulting in late diagnosis and treatment and contributing to high mortality rates. As a result, routine antifungal prophylaxis and early empirical treatment have been recommended. The use of sensitive and rapid non-culture-based diagnostic assays for the detection of Aspergillus antigens (using commercially available tests to detect galactomannan and 1, 3 β-D-glucan) or detection of genomic DNA sequences may allow a shift in emphasis from empirical to preemptive therapy, especially when substantiated by suggestive radiological findings...

The diagnosis of invasive fungal infections (IFI) remains a challenge, particularly for diseases caused by filamentous fungi such as Aspergillus species. Unfortunately, many patients affected by these conditions are not identified before autopsy. Therefore, there is a need for new diagnostic methods for IFI. Galactomannan is a soluble antigen released during hyphal growth in tissues. A commercially available sandwich ELISA assay that detects galactomannan has been used in Europe for many years and is now approved for use in the USA...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
