Candida species are major causes of infections affecting either body surfaces or the deep tissues. Candida is a complex pathogen and the immune system uses various cells, cell surface receptors and signalling pathways to trigger an efficient host defence. Host-Candida interaction can result either in rapid elimination of the pathogen or the persistence of the pathogen in immunocompromised patients, leading to either chronic mucocutanous candidiasis or invasive candidiasis. Here, we discuss the… CONTINUE READING
