Eight strains of azole-resistant Aspergillus fumigatus (A. fumigatus) – a pathogenic fungus that infects humans – have been identified on a tulip…
Candida auris is a fungus often found in the hospital environment that can cause life-threatening infections, and has attracted increased…
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology article, entitled ‘New insights of CRISPR technology in pathogenic fungi’, as we ask author Elvira Román (Complutense University of Madrid, Spain) about the advances CRISPR technology has already brought to this field and the potential it could hold in the future.
Take a look at the research highlights of 2019 as we count down the top infectious disease stories from A to Z!
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology review, entitled ‘Anti-Candida activity of existing antibiotics and their derivatives when used alone or in combination with antifungals’ as we ask the authors about Candida infections, the potential repurposing of antibiotics and the future of this field.
Researchers at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine have found that hypoxic conditions are linked to a hypoxia-typic morphotype of the pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus. This morphotype worsens the diseases progression of invasive aspergillosis in a murine model.
In this interview, Paul Rowley (University of Idaho, ID, USA) speaks about his research identifying novel antifungal proteins from Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeasts and whether these could be translated into the medications of the future.
New research suggests that higher global temperatures could have prompted an adaptation in Candida auris, allowing it to infect warm-blooded mammals.
Results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has provided insights into why Candida auris outbreaks frequent in healthcare facilities.
