Abstract

XAVIER, Melissa Orzechowski et al. Variability in Galactomannan detection by platelia Aspergillus EIA™ according to the Aspergillus species. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 2013, vol.55, n.3, pp.145-147. ISSN 1678-9946.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46652013000300001.

Here we investigate the extent to which different Aspergillus species release galactomannan (GM) in vitro. Marked variability was observed in GM reactivity between and within Aspergillus species, with A. terreus strains showing the highest GM indexes. The in vivo significance of these findings remains to be determined.

Keywords : Invasive aspergillosis; Galactomannan; Diagnosis.
