Date:10/8/2009

VOORHEES, N.J., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Systemic fungal infections are a serious complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and are associated with significant mortality in HSCT recipients. It is critical for healthcare professionals to be aware of the risk factors for fungal infections in HSCT patients and apply optimal strategies for prevention and treatment in this population.

This activity is supported by an educational grant from Schering-Plough Corporation.

Chandrasekar, MD, from Wayne State University School of Medicine and Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, Michigan; and Dimitrios P. Kontoyiannis, MD, ScD, FACP, FIDSA, from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
