A compendium of research in the field of medical mycology. Measures the impact of genome projects, genetics, and molecular biology on the understanding of a diverse group of pathogenic fungi and explores the potential impact of vaccines and new therapeutic approaches to treatment. Provides a broad overview of pathogenic fungi, including ascomycetes, basidiomycetes, zygomycetes, and both rare and common infections. Focuses on immunological aspects of infection involving innate, humoral, and cell-mediated immunity. Features comprehensive coverage of everything from general principles to specific pathogens and vaccine development. Offers an in-depth analysis of the host-pathogen relationship, and comtemplates future directions. Serves as a valuable resource for students, fellows, instructors, researchers, specialists, clinicians, and anyone interested in the general field of microbial pathogenesis."
