Antibody Test for Coccidioidomycosis
This invention is a novel diagnostic test for coccidioidomycosis, also known as valley fever. Background: Valley fever (coccidioidomycosis) is a fungal disease that is a common cause for pneumonia due to spores that are swept through the air. The fungal infection can be identified in microscopic detection of specific cells within bodily fluids....

Domain of a Protein Antigen from Coccidioides immitis which Induces Protection Against Coccidoidal Infection
Researchers at the University of Arizona have determined the precise conformation required to confer resistance to C. immitis or Valley Fever, which is endemic to Southwestern United States, Mexico, and other Latin American countries. They have identified a subunit of C. immitis antigen that would both prevent coccidioidomycosis and optimize the vaccine...
