We defined confirmed PCP as a positive result for Pneumocystis
jirovecii by Gomori-Grocott or toluidine blue stain or positive immunofluorescence test results (4) for a bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid or induced sputum specimen.
Autopsy findings suggest that dissemination of Pneumocystis
may occur via direct spread, hematogenous spread, or via lymphatic vessels.
pneumonia is still one of the most common opportunistic infections found in patients infected with HIV.

A New Name (Pneumocystis
jiroveci) for Pneumocystis
This new test from Myconostica will allow healthcare professionals to rapidly identify those patients infected by Aspergillus or Pneumocystis
thus enabling clinicians to prescribe appropriate drugs to treat the infection.
Immtech has advanced clinical programs that include new oral treatments for Pneumocystis
pneumonia (PCP), malaria, and trypanosomiasis (African sleeping sickness), and a well defined, expanding library of compounds targeting Hepatitis C, fungal infections, and bacterial infections.
In the blinded study, investigators compared quantitative touch-down polymerase chain reaction (QTD PCR) results with bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), which is widely considered to be the standard for the diagnosis of Pneumocystis
Atovaquone is marketed in the United States under the trade name Mepron for Pneumocystis
Other reported pathogens are mycobacteria, fungi, Pneumocystis
carinii, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella typhimurium.
Vernon Hills, IL, announced its first pharmaceutical product, DB-289, for the treatment of Pneumocystis
carinii pneumonia (PCP and Trypanosomiasis, is set to begin human clinical trials in the third quarter of 2000.
Approved November 25, 1992 for the treatment of mild to moderate Pneumocystis
