Researchers have uncovered the pharmacodynamic properties of novel antifungal, F901318, taking it one step closer to testing in clinical trials
During infection development in the host, Paracoccidioides spp. faces the deprivation of micronutrients, this induces the remodeling of proteins present in different metabolic pathways. This study attempts to identify membrane proteins and their regulation by zinc in Paracoccidioides lutzii.
In this report we look at the burden of cryptococcal meningitis, issues with current treatment regimens and future research directions.
In this piece, Fabio Gsaller discusses the mechanisms underpinning antifungal resistance in A. fumigatus and his work on the use of 5-flucytosine as a therapeutic agent in managing aspergillosis.
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.
The pathogenicity of T. marneffei depends on the ability of the fungus to survive the killing process and replicate inside the host macrophage cells. This paper summarizes factors relating to the stress responses that contribute to the intracellular survival of T. marneffei
