Abstract Background A large number of systemic diseases can be linked to oral candida pathogenicity. Virtually as the fungal infections, the global trend of invasive candidiasis has increased progressively of late. This tendency is often accentuated by increasing Candida albicans resistance to the most common antifungal medications. Photodynamic therapy (PT) is a promising alternative therapeutic approach for oral microbial infections. A new formulation of 5-aminolevulinic acid (5%ALA) in a ther...

The European Interreg Italy–France 2014–2020 Maritime Project SPlasH! (Stop to Plastics in H2O!) focused on the study of microplastics (MPs) in the marine port environment to evaluate their presence, abundance, and mechanisms of diffusion to the open sea. In the framework of this project, a worldwide review of 74 studies was carried out, providing an overview of MP investigation techniques, focusing on sampling strategies, laboratory methodologies, and identification of MPs collected in seawater...

Purpose Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are waste products, which today represent a serious problem in the world due to their high toxicity and difficult removal from the environment. For these reasons, they represent an important and challenging topic of study and research. PAHs may be degraded through biotic pathways including both aerobic and anaerobic degradation by bacteria, fungi, cyanobacteria and eukaryotic algae. In recent decades, fungi have proven very useful in the biodegrada...

This study faces the characterization of the culturable microbiota of the facultative Ni-hyperaccumulator Alyssoides utriculata to obtain a collection of bacterial and fungal strains for potential applications in Ni phytoextraction.Rhizosphere soil samples and adjacent bare soil associated with A. utriculata from serpentine and non-serpentine sites were collected together with plant roots and shoots. Rhizobacteria and fungi were isolated and characterized genotypically and phenotypically. Plants...

Contaminated sediments represent an important management problem that also concerns their remediation. Indeed, port dredging activities produce huge volumes of contaminated sediments that, in turn, require proper handling because of their quantity of inorganic and organic substances. Conventional management-remediation strategies of polluted sediment involve sediment washing, electron-chemical separation, and thermal treatment. Recently, bioremediation strategies have also been proposed as a pro...

Abstract The present study reports the mycological data collected from two corpses preserved in controlled conditions and monitored for 6 weeks at the mortuary. On the whole during the monitoring more than 70 fungal CFU (Colony Forming Units) were sampled from the corpses. The data collected were used to map the body fungal colonization of the corpses during 6 weeks. The two body maps show a huge difference between these cases, mainly due to the perimortem conditions. In particular, in the case ...

Abstract Aspergillus sydowii is a cosmopolitan fungus that has been responsible for the mass destruction of coral in the Caribbean Sea over the last 15 years. To our knowledge, this study has found the first case of A. sydowii in the Mediterranean Sea, in marine-bottom sediments, water and calcareous shells of bivalve molluscs sampled during a campaign to characterise the mycobiota in the Port of Genoa (Italy). The area is characterised by adverse environmental conditions (high turbidity, organi...

Abstract Fungi include a vast group of eukaryotic organisms able to colonise different natural, anthropised and extreme environments, including marine areas contaminated by metals. The present study aims to give a first multidisciplinary characterisation of marine bottom sediments contaminated by metals (Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Ni, and Zn), originating in the water leakage from an abandoned Fe-Cu sulphide mine (Libiola, north-western Italy), and evaluate how the chemical and physical parameters of water...
