Gliotoxin was measured in the lungs (mean, 3,976 ± 1,662 ng/g of tissue) and sera (mean, 36.5 ± 30.28 ng/ml) of mice with experimentally induced invasive aspergillosis (IA), and levels decreased with antifungal therapy. Gliotoxin could also be detected in the sera of cancer patients with documented (proven or probable) IA.
