FIG 1. Mold-induced hypersensitivity The most common form of hypersensitivity is caused by the direct exposure to inhaled mold spores that can be dead or alive or hyphal fragments which can lead to allergic asthma or allergic rhinitis. The most common effects are rhinorrhea (runny nose), watery eyes, coughing and asthma attacks. It can also cause osteomycosis (external ear infections) and fungus ball (abscess). Asthma attacks can occur in sensitized individuals by inhalation of the spores. Other infections include: myocarditis, meningitis, osteomyelitis, mycetoma, burn infections, invasion of nasal sinuses, onychromycosis, keratomycosis and toxin ingestion by eating contaminated food.

Fungal spores are microscopic biological particles that allow fungi to be reproduced, serving a similar purpose to that of seeds in the plant world. Fungi decompose organic waste and are essential for recycling of carbon and minerals in our ecosystem. It has been estimated that fungi recycle millions of tons of organic waste annually.

Pascal Soriot, Chief Executive Officer, AstraZeneca, said: “I am delighted worldwide and is predicted to be the third leading cause of death by 2020.

Spores can be part of asexual or sexual reproductive cycles, and are sometimes borne by multicellular sporocarps. Fungal pathogens rarely cause respiratory disease in healthy individuals, but inhalation of fungal spores can cause severe pneumonia and systemic infections in immunocompromised patients.

Spores in part owe their success to their thick walls, 2011-08-15 FUNGAL EXPOSURE: TOXICITY & IMMUNOLOGY There are four mechanisms by which fungal toxins cause pathology. One mechanism involves the direct toxic effects of fungi, molds, and yeast. The other three are exaggerated immune system reactions to fungal antigens. 1. The direct toxic effects of ochratoxins, aflatoxins, and tricothecenes.
