Therefore, MIC of cinnamaklehycle, eugenol and fluconazole was evaluated against A fumigatus
MTCC2550 in the presence of sorbitol.
2,3) Available treatment and preventive measures are not adequate, and morbidity and mortality rates associated with this infectious disease are high, especially with the emergence of resistant A fumigatus strains.
Active vaccination against A fumigatus might not produce an adequate immune response in immunocompromised patients.
An isolate of A fumigatus was obtained from the diagnostic microbiology laboratory at the American University of Beirut Medical Center and cultured on Sabouraud dextrose agar at 25[degrees]C for 3 days.
One site was repeatedly sampled as it had a high loading of A fumigatus
at the start of the survey and had 2 recent clinical cases of aspergillosis diagnosed in resident kiwi.
Mycologic examination of the 95 samples revealed the presence of 73 fungal isolates in 71 patients (two patients had mixed A fumigatus
and C albicans infection) (table 2).
We compared the development of aspergillosis in 8-month-old gyr-saker hybrid falcons and 8-month-old pigeons after a single intratracheal inoculation of different dosages of A fumigatus
