A review on the effect of fungi on patients with respiratory diseases
Author(s): Mohammed AS Isaa
Abstract: Respiratory diseases are considered chronic diseases that negatively affect the lives of patients, and recent research has focused on the relationship between respiratory diseases caused by inhaling parts of fungal strings or fungal blackboards. There are a few full reports that fully reveal the relationship of fungi to the events of a number of chronic diseases associated with the respiratory system, as well as the effect of toxins secreted by people exposed to these fungi and the characterization and purification of fungi from clinical specimens that included on sputum, wiping, parts of tissues from the lung and other samples such as the serum. As an immunological study. In this review, the authors searched through four scientific bases based on calligraphy data using the following keywords (fungi), (respiratory disease) and (production, synthesis, or synthesis). The scientific criteria were adopted in this review to classify the existing articles according to the degree (from 0 to 10). After Exclusion criteria, 62 articles were selected. None of them received a maximum of 10 points determined by the methodology, which indicates a lack of studies dealing simultaneously with respiratory diseases, isolation and fungi, purification of their toxins, and the study of the genetic makeup of these fungi and the extent of the effect of these toxins on the respiratory system directly to the patient. Among the fungi studied in these articles are Penicillium spp and Aspirgillus spp, which were the most frequent and closely related fungi species with respiratory diseases which were isolated by researchers in this review.
