Seller Inventory GOR Published by Blackwell Science Inc About this Item: Blackwell Science Inc, Although the means of diagnosing and treating fungal infections have improved greatly over the last decade fungi still represent a serious threat to the health of immunocompromised and immunodeficient patients.
The aim of this book is to give an in-depth assessment of our current understanding of the Biology of the main fungal pathogens and how they interact with the host's immune response. Each Chapter focuses on a specific fungal pathogen or group of pathogens and examines their biology and the factors that allow the fungus colonise and disseminate within the host. In addition each Chapter gives an indication of the challenges that remain to be tackled over the next 5 - 10 years in increasing our understanding of fungal pathogenicity.
Each chapter is written by internationally recognized experts and this has ensured that the book is as comprehensive and authoritative a text as is possible to assemble. Medical Mycology Kevin Kavanagh Medical Mycology: Cellular and Molecular techniques is a clear and concise overview of the subject that details the techniques essential for ongoing research in the area.
In some cases, pathology is driven by fungal invasion and virulence, whereas in others, it is mediated by over-activation of the inflammatory response to the fungus. Therefore, it is essential to be able to understand the immunopathology of specific fungal disease settings. Significant strides have been made in understanding how the immune system is activated and suppressed by fungal infections, and new opportunities are presenting themselves to be able to manipulate the immune response using immune agonists or inhibitors of inflammation.
Next-generation sequencing has revolutionized our understanding of human genes that predispose patients to specific fungal infections and these have illuminated fundamental mechanisms of immune surveillance and recognition. Increasingly, it has been recognized that the outcome of an infection is mediated not only by the fungus and the immune response, but also by the genetic profile of each patient, and the modulatory influences of the patient's microbiome and mycobiome.bilxireweeso.tk

Abstract Fungi cause more than a billion skin infections, more than million mucosal infections, 10 million serious allergies and more than a million deaths each year. Keywords: fungal cell wall, fungal infection, genetic susceptibility, immune recognition, microbiome. Introduction Fungi represent a major threat to human health accounting collectively for more than a billion skin infections, more than million mucosal infections, 10 million serious allergies and more than a million deaths each year.
Open in a separate window. Figure 1. Figure 2. Genetic susceptibility—the impact of genomics on medical mycology Not all patients in high-risk groups see above develop invasive disease, and these risk factors do not fully explain the susceptibility to candidiasis. Primary immunodeficiency syndromes Several immunodeficiencies are characterized by a strongly increased susceptibility to fungal infections, among which chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis CMC , hyper-IgE syndrome HIES and chronic granulomatous disease CGD are important examples.
Genomic approaches in fungal infections In addition to the classical candidate-based approaches for investigating susceptibility to fungal infections, recent methodological advances have permitted the initiation of discovery-based genomic approaches to identify novel genetic variants that impact on fungal disease. Understanding the impact of microbiome on the pathophysiology of fungal infections Recent years have witnessed a revolution in our understanding of how the microbiome composition impacts the health status of the host [ 74 ].

Conclusion and future prospects Fungal infections are more prevalent and often more serious than have been appreciated, and investment is required in basic research and public engagement to address the clinical challenge they impose.
