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.
In this IDHTalks podcast we speak to Mahmoud Ghannoum about the importance of fungi, his work in identifying mycobiome and its implications in health and disease.
Researchers have reported a small-molecule inhibitor of Candida albican protein Bdf1 and demonstrated the compound yields decreased fungal viability, suggesting a possible future antifungal.
Mark Blaskovich, Principal Investigator and Program Coordinator for the Community for Open Antimicrobial Drug Discovery (CO-ADD) discusses his work towards uncovering compounds with antibiotic potential and shares his thoughts on the best strategies to tackle antibiotic resistance moving forwards.
Even in the era of antiretroviral treatment, mucosal candidiasis remains one of the most common manifestations in HIV-infected subjects. This editorial discusses the loss of immune control that allows mucosal candidiasis to occur.
