PHOENIX - March 2, 2014 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video.  Their newest production discusses Exserohilum and the 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak that was associated with contaminated steroid injections.

Exserohilum is a type of mold commonly found in soil and on plants, especially grasses. It thrives in warm and humid climates and can cause root rot in some plants.  It is a very rare cause of infection in people, but it has been known to cause several different types of infections, including infection in the skin or the cornea, which are typically due to skin or eye trauma. Exserohilum can also cause more invasive forms of infection in the sinuses, lungs, lining of the heart and bone.  These infections are believed to occur more likely in people with a weakened immune system.

“Exserohilum rostratum has been identified as one of the predominant pathogens in the 2012 multistate outbreak of fungal meningitis and other fungal infections associated with contaminated steroid injections,”said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Hundreds of cases were reported, including dozens deaths.  We hope this video helps to shed some light on this fungal pathogen.”

This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Mold Solutions & FastMoldRemoval.com, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental and Healthy Indoors magazine to name a few.
