Seroepidemiology survey of anti aspergillus and anti candida albicans antibody frequency on pigeons from barcelona spain

Seroepidemiology survey of anti aspergillus and anti candida albicans antibody frequency on pigeons from barcelona spain

Revista Iberica de Micologia 6(2): 83-85

Anti-Aspergillus and anti-Candida antibody frequency were studied on 204 pigeons from Barcelona by means of immunoprecipitation techniques. By double immunodiffusion 1.5% of pigeon sera displayed a band against antigens of A. fumigatus and A. flavus, 3.9% against A. nidulans, 2.9 against C. albicans and 38.7% against A. niger. When using immunoelectrophoresis the percentage of sera with precipitation systems practically dropped to zero. Only the serum from one pigeon showed an arc against A. niger antigen. A mycological examination of this pigeon gave negative results. Results obtained from this study prove that the frequency of chronic Aspergillus infections is very low, and always below 0.5%.
