Invasive fungal infections are relatively common opportunistic infections in immunocompromised patients and are still associated with a high mortality rate. Furthermore, these infections are often complicated by resistance or refractoriness to current antimicrobial agents. Therefore, an urgent need exists for new therapeutic strategies based on the identification of new microbial targets and novel antimicrobial agents. One such hypothetical therapeutic strategy may involve the use of… CONTINUE READING
