03/01/2000 - "Coccidioidin skin testing in Kern County, California: decrease in infection rate over 58 years."
12/27/1982 - "A negative coccidioidin skin test is often seen with serious infections and is used as evidence that therapy should be initiated. "
11/01/1976 - "Thus, the over-all responses of children in Groups I and II were comparable to each other, whereas the responses of patients in Group IV were depressed to the extent that they were indistinguishable from those of coccidioidin skin test-negative donors in Group III. Follow-up chest roentgenograms taken 3 months after the immunologic assays were performed revealed that the one subject in Group I who had been nonresponsive in the lymphocyte assays had now stabilized his infection, as evidenced by calcifications. "
12/01/1976 - "The study population comprised the following: Group I, 34 patients with an active coccidioidomycosis infection; Group II, five patients with a positive coccidioidin skin test; Group III, five patients with a negative coccidioidin skin test; and Group IV, six patients with other fungal infections. "
10/01/1982 - "Among Piman and San Carlos Apache Indians, the rates of disseminated disease and death from coccidioidomycosis have declined 67 percent (p less than 0.001) and 71 percent (p less than 0.01), respectively, between the first and second half of a 22-year observation period (1959-1980), despite a lack of significant change in the rate of primary infection (as determined by the coccidioidin skin test) between the two 11-year periods.
