Título Experimental infective pneumoconiosis: Effect of asbestos dust and Candida albicans infection on the lungs of rhesus monkeys.
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1973, Vol.6, No.3, p.274-286. Illus. 24 ref.
Resumen Candida albicans and amosite dust together produced, after intertracheal inoculation, extensive collagenous fibrosis at 330 days in monkeys. The lesions produced by amosite dust alone comprised fine fibrosis around bronchioles and blood vessels and moderate interstitial fibrosis. Candida albicans alone caused acute inflammatory reaction in the early stages while at the termination of the experiment (330 days) scant evidence of candidiasis remained. It may be concluded that the extensive pulmonary fibrosis in the presence of dust is related to the simultaneous presence of organisms like C. albicans, the exact mechanism of its production requiring further investigation.
