"Fungal Interactions with the Host" focusses on the two-way recognition systems that exist between the host and the fungus and discusses new initiatives for alternatives to drug therapy through the development of vaccines and passive antibody therapy. "Antifungal Antibiotics" covers new target development, molecular modelling, and drug resistance, at the...
In this book a panel of expert international mycologists critically review the most important cutting-edge topics. Topics include: gene expression and regulation, heterozygosity in Candida , molecular diagnosis, regulation of the host-fungal interaction, the development of anti-fungals, signal transduction, and mechanisms of multi-drug resistance.
"Fungal Dimorphism and Pathogenicity" focuses on morphogenesis, the cell cycle, and the cell wall of human pathogens. "New Taxonomic Tools" presents novel approaches to aid the understanding of strain variability, the significance of environmental and patient strains, and the relatedness of "uncultured" fungi.
