New text focuses on formidable opportunistic fungus
Date:12/12/2008

oving from a saprophyte to a pathogen. The interface with the host immune systemparamount to disease phenotypeis detailed, as are the many faces of disease created by A. fumigatus. Newer diagnostic and treatment strategies are covered, including the optimal timing of antifungal therapy and the strategic choice of which agent to use.

"It is our intent that Aspergillus fumigatus and Aspergillosis will encompass the current state of knowledge to serve as a resource guide for the next decade of study on this organism and the many diseases it causes. We hope that this volume will also serve as a catalyst for future young investigators to begin their own explorations in this field, to challenge the unproven dogmas and define the mechanisms of disease," says Latg.
