This study looks at Candida tropicalis, evaluating if radiation used in radiotherapy can cause changes in the virulence potential.
A new study has identified cyclin-dependent kinases as the key regulator of chromatin snares that are essential for neutrophil immune defense.
New drugs with antifungal action need to be developed. Here, the authors investigate the antifungal activity of MOL3, a small molecule that was selected by virtual screening, against Candida spp.
A novel CRISPR–Cas9-based gene drive platform has been developed by researchers and may help us understand some of the genetic networks underlying virulence in fungal pathogen, Candida albicans.
This research article from Future Microbiology investigates the species distribution and antifungal susceptibility profiles of yeast isolates causing invasive infections across Beijing.
In this interview, we speak to Cornelia Lass-Flörl from the Innsbruck Medical University (Austria) who has a special interest in the epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention and therapy of fungal infections.
Public Health England has released updated guidance on Candida auris, as they confirm that over 200 patients have been infected or colonized with the fungus.
Take a look at our infographic to find out more about the burden of some common fungal infections and assess why the facts and figures are so uncertain.
