Edited by Sadia Sultan, ISBN 978-953-51-2393-4, Print ISBN 978-953-51-2394-1, 136 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published May 11, 2016 under CC BY 3.0 licenseDOI: 10.5772/60789 Edited Volume This book is specially written for researchers at various levels, for example, in forestry, agriculture, industry, university and college laboratories. It describes the fungal pathogenicity; resistance behavior of fungal biofilms and its mechanisms; different categories of fungal infection and colonization patterns with example relevant to soybean; characteristics of white rob of corncob and head smut of maize such as cycle, pathogenicity factors, control methods, the abilities of chitosan and its derivatives to elicit resistance reactions in plants and its action in the production and viability of fungal spores; and the mode of actions of single constituents of different essential oils depending on different case studies.

FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY 07/11/17 Antifungal and Anti-Biofilm Activity of Essential Oil Active Components against Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus laurentii Introduction Cryptococcosis caused by encapsulated basidiomycetes yeast Cryptococcus species is an opportunistic fungal infection prominent in the immunocompromised individuals (Martinez and Casadevall, 2015). Among the Cryptococcus sp., Cryptococcus neoformans remains the major causative agent, however, in the past decade, non-neoformans species such as Cryptococcus laurentii and Cryptococcus albidus have also been reported to be responsible for 80 percent of the infection (Khawcharoenporn et al., 2007). The need to address the problem of cryptococcosis has significantly increased in past years due to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic, intensive chemotherapy of cancer patients, solid organ transplant recipients, intravenous drug users and extensive use of immunosuppressive drugs (Kronstad et al., 2011; Shorman et al., 2016).

Cryptococcosis Cryptococcosis, or cryptococcal disease, is a potentially fatal fungal disease. It is caused by one of two species; Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii. These were all previously thought to be subspecies of C. neoformans but have now been identified as distinct species. Cryptococcosis is believed to be acquired by inhalation of the infectious propagule from the environment. Cause[edit] Cryptococcosis is a defining opportunistic infection for AIDS, and is the second-most-common AIDS-defining illness in Africa. Distribution is worldwide in soil.[1] The prevalence of cryptococcosis has been increasing over the past 20 years for many reasons, including the increase in incidence of AIDS and the expanded use of immunosuppressive drugs. In humans, C. neoformans causes three types of infections: Wound or cutaneous cryptococcosisPulmonary cryptococcosisCryptococcal meningitis. Diagnosis[edit] Treatment[edit] Treatment options in persons without HIV-infection have not been well studied.

Cryptococcose Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La cryptococcose est une maladie opportuniste et cosmopolite due à une levure, le Cryptococcus neoformans. Sa contamination se fait essentiellement par voie respiratoire. Distribution géographique, épidémiologie et importance[modifier | modifier le code] Répandu dans le monde entier (sol, débris organiques), les cryptocoques dont Cryptococcus neoformans, habituellement saprophyte mais de loin le plus fréquent des cryptocoques du point de vue pathogène, sont véhiculés vers l'homme par les poussières. Bien qu'il semble que l'inoculation puisse être faite par voie cutanée, lors de piqûre septique, la voie d'entrée normale des levures infectieuses semble être pulmonaire. La cryptococcose n'est pas si rare que cela : le seul Institut Pasteur de Paris en décèle 5 à 10 cas chaque année.

FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY 23/12/16 Essential oils: Source of antimicrobial and food preservative properties a perspective 1Department of Biotechnology, Yeungnam University, Korea (South) 2Department of Botany, DDU Gorakhpur University, India Aromatic and medicinal plants produce essential oils in the form of secondary metabolites. These essential oils are having a diverse way of application in the food system, perfumery, and cosmetics. The use of essential oil as antimicrobial and food preservative agents is of great concern because of several side effects of synthetics. These oils have a potential to be used as food preservative including cereals, grains, pulses fruits, and vegetables.
