Immunotherapy for Aspergillus Cancer-Hope Medical Group

AspergillusAspergillus is a group of molds, which are found everywhere world-wide, especially in the autumn and winter in the Northern hemisphere. Molds are also called filamentous fungi. Only a few of these molds can cause illness in humans and animals. Most people are naturally immune and do not develop disease caused by Aspergillus. However, when disease does occur, it takes several forms.

The types of diseases caused by Aspergillus are varied, ranging from an allergy-type illness to life-threatening generalized infections. Diseases caused by Aspergillus are called aspergillosis. The severity of aspergillosis is determined by various factors but one of the most important is the state of the immune system of the person.

This is a condition, which produces an allergy to the spores of the Aspergillus molds. It is quite common in asthmatics; up to 5% of adult asthmatics might get this at some time during their lives. ABPA is also common in cystic fibrosis patients, as they reach adolescence and adulthood. The symptoms are similar to those of asthma: intermittent episodes of feeling unwell, coughing and wheezing. Some patients cough up brown-coloured plugs of mucus. The diagnosis can be made by X-ray or by sputum, skin and blood tests. In the long term ABPA can lead to permanent lung damage (fibrosis) if untreated.

Aspergillus spores are everywhere and although we constantly breathe aspergillus spores in, it is usually not in high enough quantities to affect our health. However if a person is breathing in a much higher amount of Aspergillus spores than normal, as can happen if Aspergillus is growing in a person's home, then they can suffer negative health symptoms.

If Aspergillus exposure increases beyond a person's natural tolerance levels there are three main types of health effects they can suffer:

Biological Cancer TreatmentAllergic symptoms. People who are allergic to Aspergillus spores will suffer allergic reactions if they are exposed to high enough levels of Aspergillus spores. People with severe asthma often are sensitive to Aspergillus and can suffer asthma attacks from exposure to Aspergillus spores.

Toxic symptoms. These are caused by the mycotoxins (such as aflatoxin, a very potent carcinogen) produced by some species of Aspergillus, especially Aspergillus flavus.

Infection. Aspergillus species can infect humans (also animals) and begin to grow inside them, especially in the lungs. Usually only people with weakened immune systems will be susceptible to infection by Aspergillus. Aspergillus infections are categorized in the group of diseases called Aspergillosis.
