Current trends in outwitting resistance development in Candida infections through photodynamic and short peptide therapies: a strategic-shift from conventional antifungal agents.

Abstract

Disequilibrium in the human debilitated immune system favors proliferation of invasive Candida species, a major therapeutic challenge due to development of resistance to several conventional antifungal agents (CAA) worldwide. Multiple mutations observed at specific loci that are targets for CAA are recognized as sources of drug resistance. This has prompted… (More)
