Tips on how to produce sputum

Simple steps for patients to loosen phlegm in the lungs and easily produce sputum samples for testing in the clinic. Designed for aspergillosis patients or any patients with respiratory illnesses.

Double lung transplant & CF

A double lung transplant has been carried out on a young cystic fibrosis patient, who had more than 10 aspergillomas in her lung. Clip shown on BBC North West news shows an interview with Becky and Prof Denning.

A carer's story of living with aspergillosis

Short history from patient's wife. Brief history and experiences of attending National Aspergillosis Centre

Identification of antibodies to fungal pathogens by immunodiffusion

Immunodiffusion technique to test for serum antibodies in patients - describes how to set up a test for the presence of antibodies in serum which are specific to various fungal pathogens.

BBC nearly half of adults with cystic fibrosis are infected by aspergillus

The Role of Echinocandins

Fungi are eukaryotic organisms which possess a unique cell wall and cell membrane that can serve as targets for antifungal agents. The echinocandin class of antifungal agents target the cell wall of fungi.

The Role of Amphotericin

Fungi are eukaryotic organisms which possess a unique cell wall and cell membrane that can serve as targets for antifungal agents. Polyene antifungal agents such as Amphotericin B target the fungal cell membrane.

Overview of Fungal Cell Structure

Fungi are eukaryotic organisms and are not related to bacteria. As eukaryotes, they contain membrane bound organelles and possess a cell membrane surrounded by a rigid cell wall.

Antifungals (Fungal Infections - Lesson 4)

A review of antifungals, focusing on amphotericin B, azoles, and echinocandins. Structure, mechanism, spectrum of antifungal activity, common clinical uses, and common side effects/toxicities are all discussed. (April 2015)

The Role of Amphotericin

Fungi are eukaryotic organisms which possess a unique cell wall and cell membrane that can serve as targets for antifungal agents. Polyene antifungal agents such as Amphotericin B target the fungal cell membrane.

The Role of Azoles
