Fungi and mammals share a co-evolutionary history and are involved in a complex web of interactions. Studies focused on commensal bacteria suggest that pathological changes in the microbiota, historically known as dysbiosis, are at the root of many inflammatory diseases of non-infectious origin. However, the importance of dysbiosis in the fungal community — the mycobiota — was only recently acknowledged to have a pathological role, as novel findings have suggested that mycobiota disruption can… CONTINUE READING
