Pneumocystis jirovecii is a pathogen that causes Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), an infection in human immunodeficiency virus/acquired human immunodeficiency virus (HIV/AIDS) and other immunocompromised patients. The rare reports of P. jirovecii pneumonia in sub-Saharan Africa are controversial; there is a high concern in areas with high HIV/AIDS seropositivity. Sputum samples were analyzed by microscopy and polymerase chain...

Effect of temperature and osmotic stress on the growth and cell viability of Candida maltosa

Article in Press

With a prior examination to bacterial response toward heat and osmotic stresses, the present research attempted to observe these effects on yeast species in cheese. The Candida maltosa yeast strain was isolated from cheese and identified through biochemical characteristics as well as finally confirmed by BIOLOGTM microbial identification system. To understand its growth and budding pattern within high temperature and...

Biochemical characterization of yeast species isolated from industry effluent for Azo dye decolorization

Article in Press

Azo dyes are the largest group organic dyes resistance to degradation and toxic to environment. Physico- chemical treatments are very expensive and releasing large amounts of secondary toxic degradant . Microbial treatments are optional alternatives. The main objective of this research is to isolate and characterize yeast biochemically from industry effluent for Azo dye degradation for bioremediation application. Screening...

Cultivation of Oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) on substrate composed of coffee husk and cotton seed waste

Article in Press

Pleurotus ostreatus is known to utilize a wide range of agricultural by -products and organic wastes from agro-processing industries. This study was conducted in order to assess the bioconversion efficiency of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatu) on substrate composed from coffee husk supplemented with different proportion of cotton seed waste to mushroom biomass. The experiment was carried out in different mixing ratio...

Incidence and severity of fungal diseases of some economic trees at Onigambari forest reserve southwest Nigeria

Article in Press

Fungi are the most predominant and destructive pathogens in the forest ecosystem resulting in significant loss of biodiversity and species abundance. The incidence and severity of fungal disease symptoms at Onigambari forest reserve were evaluated. Field surveys were conducted to determine fungal diseases associated with forest trees at the reserve. Detailed assessment of tree symptoms was carried out among forest trees in...

Distribution of candida in the genitourinary tract of diabetic mellitus patients attending Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital, Osun State, Nigeria

Article in Press

The incidence of opportunistic infections due to Candida albicans and other Candida spp. has been increasing. Rapid identification of Candida spp. is important for the clinical management of these individuals. The purpose of this study was to identify Candida spp. isolated from the genitourinary tract of diabetic mellitus patients attending Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital, Osun State, Nigeria....
