Antifungals

Alix T. Coste and Patrick Vandeputte present a new book on Antifungals: From Genomics to Resistance and the Development of Novel Agents
In this book a panel of high-profile authors provides an overview of current antifungal research. Chapters are written from a molecular and genomic perspective and contain speculative models upon which to base future research efforts. Topics include: the molecular mechanisms responsible for antifungal resistance to the classical molecules, azoles, polyenes, and echinocandins; fungal biofilms; fungal-specific biological pathways that constitute potential new targets; strategy to potentiate existing antifungal agents; Impact of high throughput screenings of chemical compound collections; modulating the host response; antifungal vaccines; and animals models. This volume is an essential reference for everyone with an interest in fungal pathogenesis. A recommended book for all biology and medical libraries. read more ...
