Indoor mould. How can I clean up at home?

Sources of aspergillus and how can I clean up at home? By Professor Malcolm Richardson

Antifungal drugs
The Role of Azoles

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 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.

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 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.

Research & Science
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.

Patients and general interest
Open the windows Poetry & Medicine

Literary event - Manchester Literature Festival hosted at Manchester Museum to increase awareness of Aspergillosis, in October 2013. Exploring literature, music and medicine.

A carer's story of living with aspergillosis

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

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.

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.

Active cycle breathing technigues and benefits of excercise for aspergillosis patients

Informal recording of a meeting for patients. By Philip Langridge Aspergillosis Specialist Physiotherapist.

Interview with CPA patient (2)

This patient underwent a lung resection in 1991 for a suspect lesion in his lung, histology revealed inflammation and an area containing fungal hyphae consistent with a fungal ball. Resection appeared to cure the problem.

Interview with CPA patient

This patient had severe kyphoscoliosis as a child with insertion of spinal rods in early adulthood. She is a life-long non-smoker.
