Interest in Candida as a pathogen has increased dramatically in recent years because of the importance of these organisms as disease-causing agents, particularly in the immunocompromised patient. This is a single source volume of comprehensive coverage on the current state of the research. Emphasizing both basic science, including cell biology, cell structure, growth, virulence factors, and host response, and clinical science aspects, it serves as the standard reference work on Candida and candidiasis. Sections on genomics, including molecular techniques, and virulence reflect the mycology community's current interest in molecular pathogenesis. Concepts of immunity and drug therapy, the subjects at the core of treatment procedures, are also discussed. Intended as a research and teaching tool to update the current thinking on these pathogens, Candida and Cadidiasis should be of value to a broad range of groups, including clinicians, diagnostic laboratory technicians, and undergraduate and medical students. It is also an excellent starting point for anyone interested in pursuing research on these organisms.
