a 1-year aspergillus terreus surveillance study at the university hospital of innsbruck: molecular typing of environmental and clinical isolates.aspergillus terreus appears to have become an increasingly frequent cause of opportunistic infections in the university hospital of innsbruck (uhi) and is of serious concern because of in vivo and in vitro resistance to amphotericin b. in order to determine the possible relationship between environmental contamination by a. terreus and the occurrence of invasive aspergillosis, a 1-year prospective study (2004-2005) was carried out in the uhi. isolates obtained from air samples of various high-ri ...200819076844
geographically predominant genotypes of aspergillus terreus species complex in austria: s microsatellite typing study.aspergillus terreus species complex is recognized as a frequent agent of invasive aspergillosis in tyrol. the reason for this specific epidemiological situation is unclear. aspergillus terreus strains isolated from environmental and clinical sources were genotyped using a novel panel of short tandem repeats and were evaluated for virulence. three major endemic genotypes collected from the inn region and its side valleys were found to cause the majority of invasive a. terreus infections. all of t ...201626577144
epidemiology and outcome of infections due to aspergillus terreus: 10-year single centre experience.aspergillus terreus, a less common pathogen, appears to be an emerging cause of infection at our institution, the medical university hospital of innsbruck. thus the epidemiology and outcome of a. terreus infections over the past 10 years was assessed. we analysed 67 cases of proven invasive aspergillosis (ia) according to the european organisation for research and treatment of cancer/mycoses study group criteria, investigated antifungal susceptibility of amphotericin b (amb), voriconazole and ca ...200516197450
molecular typing of aspergillus terreus isolates collected in houston, texas, and innsbruck, austria: evidence of great genetic diversity.aspergillus terreus isolates collected from patients at the m. d. anderson cancer center in houston, tx, and at the university hospital of innsbruck, austria, were analyzed using random amplification of polymorphic dna-pcr with three different primers. no strain similarity in either institution was detected, indicating great genetic diversity of a. terreus.200717581930
