Immunoprotection during most forms of candidiasis (oropharyngeal, invasive) is lacking since most candidiasis patients are immunosuppressed either as a result of their allogeneic transplant, cancer chemotherapy, or HIV infection. Consequently, immunization might be considered as an unlikely way to protect patients from such infection. Nonetheless, there are a number of investigations that indicate active immunization or the passive treatment with hyperimmune, specific antibodies can result in… CONTINUE READING
