Click Here: https://goo.gl/5CNZJP Click Here : http://ouo.io/t9Lb4y Hello Folks. Welcome to our channel today. We will be discussing cryptococcosis today. It is a fungal infection caused by a fungus named C. neoformans or C. gattii. It is widely spread around the world. It is mostly harmless, until coming in contact to a person with very low immunity. It does not affect any person who has a normal to above average immunity. But for people with a lesser active immune system, it is another story. It generally affects people's lungs, brains and spinal cord, especially the central nervous system. It can also extend to other parts of the body, if not treated on time or effectively. Fungus Cryptococcus induced brain infections are termed cryptococcal meningitis. This fungal infection is more common in patients suffering from HIV/AIDS. fungal infections fungal skin infections fungal infections of the skin what causes fungal infections are fungal infections contagious types of fungal infections foot fungal infections how to treat fungal infections common fungal infections skin fungal infections fungal infections in humans types of fungal skin infections fungal infections on skin chronic fungal infections natural remedies for fungal infections superficial fungal infections Fungal Infections Home Remedies Best Home Remedies forFungal Infections Natural Home Remedies For Fungal Infections Ayurvedic Remedies for Fungal Infections Homemade Remedies for Fungal Infections Homemade Medicine for Fungal Infections Herbal Remedies For Fungal Infections There are certain fungal diseases that have been identified by the scientists like mycosis, candida, athlete’s foot and yeast disease.

This Version of Cryptococcus gattii has been Genetically Modified and is Resistant to Treatment leaving a Trail of Death. Canada and United States have New Cases of Great Numbers to point of concern. This novel fungus is worrisome because it appears to be a threat to otherwise healthy people. This is Spreading to ALL types of Animals , even DOLPHINS!!! Read More: http://www.emaxhealth.com/1275/fungus-cryptococcus-gatti-threat-healthy-people.html Infection with C. gattii causes symptoms about two weeks or more after individuals or animals have been exposed to the airborne spores. Once the spores are inhaled, they embed themselves in the lungs, colonize, and then spread throughout the body. Symptoms include persistent cough, pneumonia, sharp chest pains, shortness of breath, fever, weight loss, headache, and nighttime sweats. Meningitis can also occur.

According to some estimates, there are over 20 million pet birds residing in almost 7 million households in the United States. These pets bring joy and happiness to their owners, but they can also impact the indoor air quality of a home and on rare occasions may cause human illnesses. In addition to potential odors issues, perhaps one of the most common concerns associated with pet birds is their ability to trigger allergies in some people. The usual source of the allergens is the pet bird’s dander or even dust mites which can collect in the bird’s feathers. Pet owners can also be exposed to pathogens from their birds through inhalation, ingestion or through cuts and abrasions on their skin. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists the following four diseases associated with pet birds, although they may not occur frequently in the U.S.: • Cryptococcosis (Cryptococcus neoformans) - People get cryptococcosis by breathing in contaminated dust or getting it in open wounds. In humans, symptoms resemble pneumonia and include shortness of breath, coughing, and fever. Skin infections can also occur. Infants, the elderly and those with a weakened immune system can be more susceptible to serious infections. • Histoplasmosis (Histoplasma capsulatum) - Histoplasmosis is a fungal disease that is spread to people when they breathe in dust from pigeon or bat droppings. • Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC, Avian Tuberculosis) - MAC is a bacterial disease spread to people from birds and other animals through the environment, though it is not clear exactly how the bacteria are transmitted. • Parrot Fever (Psittacosis; Chlamydiophila psittaci) - Parrot fever is a bacterial disease that people can get after accidentally breathing in secretions of infected psittacine birds, including parrots and parakeets, or poultry and wild birds. Another potential health concern associated with birds is bird fancier’s lung (BFL), a type of hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) associated mainly with exposure to dry dusts from bird droppings. In recent years, avian influenza outbreaks have also occurred in other parts of the world. These are just a few things to know about pet birds, indoor air quality and your health.

Coccidioidomycosis is thought to be greatly under-diagnosed and under-reported. A high index of suspicion is needed in areas with high cocci prevalence and appropriate tests should be ordered when dealing with persons with compatible symptoms. Infectious Agent: Coccidioides immitis (a dimorphic fungus) Mode of Transmission: Inhalation of airborne spores from the soil.

This video depicts a thoracoscopic lung biopsy performed by Dr Deepraj Bhandarkar in a patient suspected to have interstitial lung disease. Patients who have a suspicious lesion in an area of lung or have widely distributed lesions in both the lungs may require a lung biopsy. The clinical presentation along with the features on a high-resolution chest CT provides a diagnosis in several patients suspected to have interstitial lung disease. A proportion of patients in whom the diagnosis cannot be reached require a lung biopsy. As compared to open lung biopsy, a thoracoscopic lung biopsy allows the patients to recover faster and with less postoperative pain.

Maningitis (hindi): its an infection can affects the human brain. Meningitis is an inflammation (swelling) of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord known as the meninges. This inflammation is usually caused by an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis is usually caused by bacteria or viruses, but can be a result of injury, cancer, or certain drugs. It is important to know the specific cause of meningitis because the treatment differs depending on the cause. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "must watch (funny) - A 2 year old brilliant child....." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbT-a1xuSKk -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

""Rhinosporidium seeberi"" is a eukaryotic pathogen responsible for rhinosporidiosis, a disease which affects humans, horses, dogs, and to a lesser extent cattle, cats, foxes, and birds. It is most commonly found in tropical areas, especially India and Sri Lanka. The pathogen was first identified in 1892, and was comprehensively described in 1900 by Seeber. There are many aspects of the disease and of the pathogen "Rhinosporidium seeberi" which remain problematic and enigmatic. These include, the pathogen’s natural habitat, some aspects of its ‘life cycle’, its immunology, some aspects of the epidemiology of the disease in humans and in animals, the reasons for the delay at "in vitro" culture and establishment of disease in experimental animals and hence paucity of information on its sensitivity to drugs, and the immunology of the pathogen. Thankamani isolated an organism believed to be "Rhinosporidium seeberi" and gave the name "UMH.48." It was originally isolated from the biopsies and nasal swabs of Rhinosporidiosis patients. The various developmental stages of UMH.48 showed a strong resemblance with the structures seen in hisopathological sections of Rhinosporidiosis in tissue samples. The spores of UMH.48 were found to be viable even after a decade of preservation in the refrigerator without any subculture, resembling the features of "Synchytridium endobioticum", a lower aquatic fungus that causes black wart disease in potatoes. However carefully performed molecular studies would show the definitive identity of the organism. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.

10 diseases can be caused by animals to human.1, Anthrax: Anthrax is an infection caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It can occur in four forms: skin, lungs, intestinal, and injection, Symptoms begin between one day and two months after the infection is contracted.2, Australian bat lyssavirus;Australian bat lyssavirus is a zoonotic virus closely related to rabies virus. It was first identified in a 5-month-old juvenile black flying fox (Pteropus alecto) collected near Ballina in northern New South Wales. 3, Brucellosis : Brucellosis is a highly contagious zoonosis caused by ingestion of unpasteurized milk or undercooked meat from infected animals, or close contact with their secretions.4,Cryptococcosis: Cryptococcosis, also known as cryptococcal disease, is a potentially fatal fungal disease. It is caused by one of two species; Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii.5 Giardiasis: Giardiasis is an infection in your small intestine. It's caused by a microscopic parasite called Giardia lamblia.6 Hydatid disease: Hydatid disease is a parasitic infestation by a tapeworm of the genus Echinococcus.7 Tetanus: Tetanus is caused by an infection with the bacterium Clostridium tetani, which is commonly found in soil, saliva, dust, and manure.8, Q fever: Q fever is a zoonosis caused by Coxiella burnetii, an obligate gram-negative intracellular bacterium. Cattle, sheep, and goats are the primary reservoirs for this disease. 9,Toxoplasmosis. 10 : elephantiasis : Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, is a human disease caused by parasitic worms known as filarial worms. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Images under licence cc : www.pexels.com www.flickr.com commons.wikimedia.org pixabay.com

The rock dove (Columba livia) or rock pigeon is a member of the bird family Columbidae (doves and pigeons). In common usage, this bird is often simply referred to as the "pigeon". The species includes the domestic pigeon (including the fancy pigeon), and escaped domestic pigeons have given rise to feral populations around the world.Wild rock doves are pale grey with two black bars on each wing, while domestic and feral pigeons are very variable in colour and pattern. There are few visible differences between males and females.The species is generally monogamous, with two squabs (young) per brood. Both parents care for the young for a time.Habitats include various open and semi-open environments. Cliffs and rock ledges are used for roosting and breeding in the wild. Originally found wild in Europe, North Africa, and western Asia, feral pigeons have become established in cities around the world. The species is abundant, with an estimated population of 17 to 28 million feral and wild birds in Europe. Rock doves have been domesticated for several thousand years, giving rise to the domestic pigeon (Columba livia domestica).As well as food and pets, domesticated pigeons are used as homing pigeons. They were in the past also used as carrier pigeons, and so-called war pigeons have played significant roles during wartime, with many pigeons having received bravery awards and medals for their services in saving hundreds of human lives: including, notably, the British pigeon Cher Ami who received the Croix de Guerre for her heroic actions during World War I, and the Irish Paddy and the American G.I. Joe, who both received the Dickin Medal, amongst 32 pigeons to receive this medallion, for their gallant and brave actions during World War II.There are numerous breeds of fancy pigeons of all sizes, colours and types. Pigeons have been falsely associated with the spread of human diseases.[verification needed] Contact with pigeon droppings poses a minor risk of contracting histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis,and exposure to both droppings and feathers can produce bird fancier's lung. Pigeons are not a major concern in the spread of West Nile virus; though they can contract it, they do not appear to be able to transmit it.Pigeons are, however, at potential risk for carrying and spreading avian influenza. One study has shown that adult pigeons are not clinically susceptible to the most dangerous strain of avian influenza, the H5N1, and that they did not transmit the virus to chickens.Other studies have presented evidence of clinical signs and neurological lesions resulting from infection, but found that the pigeons did not transmit the disease to chickens reared in direct contact with them.Pigeons were found to be "resistant or minimally susceptible" to other strains of avian influenza, such as the H7N7. Pigeons may harbour a diverse parasite fauna.They often host the intestinal helminths Capillaria columbae and Ascaridia columbae. Their ectoparasites include the Ischnoceran lice Columbicola columbae, Campanulotes bidentatus compar, the Amblyceran lice Bonomiella columbae, Hohorstiella lata, Colpocephalum turbinatum, the mites Tinaminyssus melloi, Dermanyssus gallinae, Dermoglyphus columbae, Falculifer rostratus, and Diplaegidia columbae. The hippoboscid fly Pseudolynchia canariensis is a typical blood-sucking ectoparasite of pigeons, found only in tropical and sub-tropical regions. With only its flying abilities protecting it from predation, rock pigeons are a favorite almost around the world for a wide range of raptorial birds. In fact, with feral pigeons existing in almost every city in the world, they may form the majority of prey for several raptor species who live in urban areas. Peregrine falcons and Eurasian sparrowhawks are natural predators of pigeons that are quite adept at catching and feeding upon this species. Up to 80% of the diet of peregrine falcons in several cities that have breeding falcons is composed of feral pigeons.Some common predators of feral pigeons in North America are opossums, raccoons, red-tailed hawks, great horned owls, eastern screech owls and Accipiters. The birds that predate pigeons in North America can range in size from American kestrels to golden eagles and can even include gulls, crows, and ravens. On the ground the adults, their young and their eggs are at risk from feral and domestic cats.Doves and pigeons are considered to be game birds as many species have been hunted and used for food in many of the countries in which they are native. The rock dove breeds at any time of the year, but peak times are spring and summer, in India they breed in February. Nesting sites are along coastal cliff faces, as well as the artificial cliff faces created by apartment buildings with accessible ledges or roof spaces. for More https://en.wikipedia.org/

Transfer factors are used for infectious conditions in people with weak immune systems. These infectious conditions include bacteria or viruses in the blood stream (septicemia), sinus infections, bronchitis, influenza, swine flu, the common cold, shingles, chickenpox, hepatitis B, fungal infections such as coccidioidomycosis, yeast infections (candidiasis), parasitic infections such as leishmaniasis and cryptosporidiosis, and leprosy. Transfer factors are also used against infections caused by viruses such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein-Barr virus; by bacteria such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium fortuitum, and Mycobacterium avium; and by yeast-like fungus such as Cryptococcus and Pneumocystis carinii. Transfer factors are also used for diabetes, autism, infertility, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Behcet's syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, balding, and Alzheimer's disease. They are also used for skin conditions including psoriasis, allergic dermatitis, and others. Other uses include an eye condition called retinitis pigmentosa, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease), multiple sclerosis, bone cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, food and chemical allergies, myasthenia gravis, and asthma. How does it work? Transfer factor might boost immunity to specific diseases.

Poor Casper. After rescuing this big boy from the outdoors (his previous owner's abandoned him), we found him doing this strange cough. It didn't look like a hairball cough and happened often enough that it concerned us. So we took this video to show our vet. And sure enough, this is the telltale sign of kitty asthma. They also took X-rays to verify. This is what a feline asthma attack looks and sounds like. During an asthma attack, a cat will put his head down near the ground and stretch his neck out (like a seal). This is not a hairball cough. Feline asthma affects approximately 1% of the american domestic feline population. Casper is now taking a steroid, Prednisolone, daily which has helped to decrease the frequency of his attacks. If you see your cat doing this, take him to the vet for a check-up.

On May 25, 2016, OADS offered the first in the “We Were There” lecture series. The inaugural event, “And the Band Played On…Early Days of the AIDS Epidemic in the United States: Views from Atlanta and Hollywood,” commemorated the 35th anniversary of the first AIDS MMWR article with a presentation by Dr. Harold Jaffe and Dr. Jim Curran. They shared their unique perspectives from their time leading CDC in the early response to HIV/AIDS, discussing their personal experiences and relating them to clips from the film And the Band Played On. Dr. Jaffe and Dr. Curran were then joined on stage by Dr. Walt Dowdle and Dr. Martha Rogers for a question and answer segment.

This seminar was part of the 2011 CDC-sponsored lecture series, "HIV/AIDS: 30 Years of Leadership and Lessons" and took place during the 2011 National HIV Prevention Conference, Atlanta, GA. The program occurred on August 15, 2011. This session will describe the early history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the USA based on Dr. Harold Jaffe and Dr. James Curran first hand recollections and experiences at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and clips from a film, "And the Band Played On," based on a book of the same name written by Randy Shilts. This session serves to illustrate the power of the epidemiologic method to understand the transmission and natural history of new infectious diseases in advance of identifying their causes.

Cà rốt, xúc xích salami, phô mai cứng dù bị mốc vẫn có thể ăn; còn mứt, thạch mốc cần vứt đi. Theo Bộ Nông nghiệp Mỹ (USDA), nấm mốc có khả năng gây dị ứng và các vấn đề về hô hấp, một số loại thậm chí còn dẫn tới ngộ độc. Vi khuẩn phát triển cùng nấm mốc khiến ăn thực phẩm bị mốc dễ dẫn đến nhiễm trùng. Tuy nhiên, không phải đồ ăn nào bị mốc cũng vứt đi. Dưới đây là những thực phẩm vẫn ăn được nếu bị mốc và những loại phải bỏ do USDA khuyến cáo. Thực phẩm ăn được Xúc xích salami khô và đùi lợn muối Salami khô (xúc xích dạng khối được làm từ thịt động vật lên men và sấy khô) và đùi lợn muối thường có nấm mốc Penicillium, Aspergillus bên ngoài. Những loại này không gây hại cho sức khỏe mà ngược lại bảo vệ thực phẩm. Theo bác sĩ Wynn Huynh Tran, nhà sáng lập tổ chức y khoa phi lợi nhuận VietMD, nhìn chung, các loại nấm mốc mọc bên ngoài salami và đùi lợn muối sau khi gạt bỏ phần mốc thì an toàn để ăn. Lưu ý, nếu salami khô và đùi lợn muối xuất hiện mùi khó chịu, nổi mốc nâu/đen hoặc mốc nằm bên trong thịt thì bạn nên vứt bỏ. Các loại rau củ quả cứng, độ ẩm thấp Nấm mốc cần thời gian phát triển ở các loại rau củ quả như cà rốt, bắp cải, ớt chuông. Bạn chỉ cần cắt bỏ ít nhất 3 cm xung quanh chỗ bị mốc là dùng tiếp được. Nên rửa dao sạch sau khi cắt để tránh nấm mốc lây chéo cho thực phẩm khác. Phô mai cứng Chỉ cần cắt bỏ khu vực mốc là ăn bình thường. Nên gói phô mai bằng giấy sạch sẽ. Phô mai lên men Có nhiều loại phô mai lên men như Roquefort, Blue, Gorgonzola, Stilton ăn rất ngon. Riêng phô mai mềm như Brie hay Camembert không ăn nếu thấy bị mốc. Với phô mai cứng hơn, bỏ ít nhất 3 cm xung quanh phần bị mốc là có thể ăn được. Thực phẩm cần loại bỏ Các loại củ quả mềm độ ẩm cao Không nên ăn dưa chuột, đào hay cà chua một khi chúng đã bị mốc. Bánh mì Rhizopus stolonifer hay nấm mốc đen trên bánh mì và các loại bánh nướng có thể khiến bạn bị ngộ độc hay nhiễm trùng. Phô mai mềm, nghiền vụn hoặc thái lát Phô mai kem, Neufchatel, Chevre và Bel Paese bị mốc do nhiễm khuẩn. Các loại phô mai nghiền vụn hay thái lát nếu bị mốc có thể do dụng cụ cắt không đảm bảo vệ sinh. Bơ đậu phộng, quả đậu và quả hạch Đồ ăn không chứa chất bảo quản rất dễ bị nhiễm nấm mốc và thường sản sinh ra các độc tố rất nguy hiểm. Mứt và thạch Độc tố nấm mốc trên mứt, thạch có thể xuất hiện ngay cả khi bạn đã loại bỏ phần bị mốc. Do đó nếu đã lên mốc thì bỏ hoàn toàn món ăn. Thực phẩm độ ẩm cao Thịt nguội, phô mai, thịt xông khói, xúc xích, hot dog, thịt ăn thừa, thịt hầm, ngũ cốc đã chế biến, mì ống đã nấu, sữa chua và kem chua, đều rất dễ bị...

Granuloma (plural granulomas or granulomata) is an inflammation found in many diseases. It is a collection of immune cells known as macrophages. Granulomas form when the immune system attempts to wall off substances that it perceives as foreign but is unable to eliminate. Such substances include infectious organisms such as bacteria and fungi as well as other materials such as keratin and suture fragments. The adjective granulomatous means characterized by granulomas.

This video shows my 5-year old cat with degenerative neurologic disease twitching when he lays down (at .3, .8, .18, .21, and .27 seconds in this video - though it's kind of hard to see in this video). My 5-year old cat Churro is suffering from an undiagnosed degenerative neurologic disease. He started developing balance problems when he was only 2 ½ years old by miscalculating distances when he tried to jump. At 3 ½ years, he was losing his ability to jump at all; his gait started to change into a high-stepped, deliberate gait; and he was having a harder time coordinating his steps to run. He also started having periodic seizures where his body would freeze up for several seconds (I call these episodes "seizures" for lack of another word, but the vets tell me they're not seizures because his body isn't convulsing, he isn't foaming at the mouth, etc.) These symptoms kept progressing, and now at 5 years old, he: • Can't run or jump at all; • Falls over when he walks (see videos at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIx7YJRxqCk; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KTy5GTH_OI&feature=youtu.be); • Has difficulty walking and controlling his legs (it's like he's losing the ability to control where his legs go and his back legs are atrophying); • Is losing the ability to perceive distance because his nose bumps into things when he sniffs them; • Has a hard time focusing and his head will bob a little bit sometimes when he's trying to focus (you can see a little bit of his head bob in this video at 18 seconds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=metywqDtjkA&feature=youtu.be); And look how his body wobbles when he walks between the couch and the wall in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxK9S7pHUDg&feature=youtu.be; • Has seizure episodes where his whole body tenses up, his legs stick straight out, his head pulls back, and his eye go wide and blank for about 5-10 seconds. His whole body turns rock solid and every muscle tenses up. Here is a seizure caught on video (but it's slightly blurry: http://youtu.be/wpV-FchJxeA). There is also a slight example of his body freezing up in this video at 16 seconds(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svnlg2SJo6Q); • Drops his head straight down to the ground after he looks up or backwards, and when he's coming out of his seizures (you can see an example of his head dropping down to the ground after looking backwards at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNEMBY3feMY); and • Muscles twitch a lot when he's lying down (see THIS VIDEO at 3, 8, 18, 21, and 27 seconds). Despite all of this, Churro is still the same ornery and fun-loving cat he has always been, which is why it's so incredibly sad and painful to watch him deteriorate from this undiagnosed neurologic disease. TREATMENT: Churro has been to three different neurologists (one at a vet school), and several internists to try to figure out what's going on. He's had a slew of tests and has been on every antibiotic imaginable in case it was a brain infection, but the tests were inconclusive and no drugs helped him. The final diagnosis was simply that he has degenerative brain disease (degenerative cerebellar abiotrophy?). I'd be really interested to see if anyone has any thoughts or ideas. TESTS/PROCEDURES: 1. Ear infection (April '12): treated and cured w/ DMSO drops. 2. CT scan (May '12) showed large mass in left nasal sinus and septum deviated to right. 3. Rhinoscopy (May '12) to clear out mass. Biopsy showed chronic rhinitis. 4. Cryptococcus test: normal 5. Toxoplasmosis test: normal 6. Thyroid test: normal 7. UPenn genetic testing: normal 8. MRI and CSF Spinal tap (August 8th, 2012): Brain normal, fluid normal. ANTIBIOTICS/DRUGS: Zeniquen, Chloramphenicol, Cefpodoxime, Levofloxacin, Doxycycline, Clindamycin, SMZ/TMP (sulfa-methoxazole trimethoprim), prednisone.
