Paracoccidioidomycosis: No genetic damage in human peripheral blood cells of patients assessed by single-cell gel (comet) assay
MetadataShow full item record
Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic fungal infection caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. As infectious diseases can cause DNA damage, the authors aimed at analyzing DNA breakage in peripheral blood cells of patients with paracoccidioidomycosis by using the comet assay. The results suggested that paracoccidioidomycosis does not cause genotoxicity.
