Abstract

The ciliostatic effect of metabolites from mycelia and spore biomass of 185 micromycete strains extractable with chlor of orm on tracheal epi the l cilia was investigated in 1-d old chickens in vitro. The strains were isolated from cotton or flax. Extracts of 54 strains (29 %) displayed ciliostatic activity: 16 (9 %), 6 (3 %), and 32 (17 %) strains stopped the movement of cilia after 24, 48, and 72 hours, respectively. There may be relationships between these results and respiratory tract illnesses in people living in mouldy dwellings, working with mouldy materials, or with sick building syndrome.
