Improve molecular methods to detect Histoplasma capsulatum in humans
Histoplasmosis is an endemic mycosis caused by the dimorphic fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. It is found as a mold in the environment and as a yeast at body temperature during infection. This organism is endemic […]
Understanding the genesis of the Titan cells in Cryptococcus neoformans
The pathogenic yeast Cryptococcus neoformans undergoes morphological changes in cell size during host interaction, producing a high percentage of Titan cells (> 10 μm) instead of the typical size 5 to 7 μm cells. We […]
CryptoVIEW: Unraveling pathogenesis of Cryptococcosis using optical and multimodal visualizaion of enigmatic events and virulence aspects in vivo.
Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii are encapsulated yeasts that can cause life-threatening disease; mainly in immune-suppressed patients, but also in immune-competent individuals. Cryptococcosis affects the lung and may spread to the brain, manifesting itself […]
Deciphering dormancy in Cryptocococcus neoformans
Cryptococcus neoformans is a sugar-coated yeast that is able to interact closely with numerous organisms in the environment including amebae, paramecium of nematodes. The interaction with these organisms probably shaped its virulence. The ability […]
Databases on the epidemiology of invasive fungal infections in France
A nationwide network of dedicated clinicians and microbiologists/mycologists composing the French Mycoses Study Group who diagnose and treat the patients with invasive fungal infections contribute to the surveillance programs by notifying their cases through […]
