The Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen on the Growth of Rhizopus nigricans.
FRANK J SEILER RESEARCH LAB UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ACADEMY CO
Pagination or Media Count:
Plus and minus - mating strains of Rhizopus nigricans were observed in vitro for macroscopic and microscopic growth characteristics at varying hyperbaric oxygen levels and for various exposure times and intervals. Definite inhibition of both strains was observed within oxygen levels well tolerated by humans. Overall experimental results provide in vitro basis for use of compression chamber therapy in treatment of mucormycosis caused by Rhizopus nigricans. Author
