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.

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.
