“…Cryptococcus neoformans is responsible for an estimated 220,000 cases of cryptococcosis, resulting in more than 181,000 deaths each year worldwide. An opportunistic fungal pathogen, C. neoformans typically presents as pneumonia or meningitis, the latter of which is considered an AIDS-defining illness. Interestingly, prevalence of this disease is skewed between males and females. Numerous studies show differences in C. neoformans infection rates, with males having a higher incidence of disease and greater symptom severity in both HIV-positive patients (8M:1F) and HIV-negative patients (2–3M:1F) …10% human serum (50:50 male:female, Innovative Research, Novi, MI) and centrifuged at 400×g to pellet PBMCs…”
