Molecular Principles of Fungal Pathogenesis

"Treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics leads to decreased populations of bacterial components of the normal flora and increased levels of candida albicans."

Joseph Heitman, John E. Edwards, Jr., Scott G. Filler, Aaron P. Mitchell

This book provides a state-of-the-art review of medical mycology compiled by the leading researchers in the field. It presents a selection of chapters covering immunological aspects of infection. It captures the excitement of recently completed genome projects and their impact on the understanding of fungal biology and virulence. It examines the recent advances in the development of fungal vaccines. It features an in-depth analysis of the host-pathogen relationship.
