Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fungal infections are a worldwide threat, carrying not only high morbidity and mortality rates but also high healthcare costs. It has been anticipated that 10 million people die per year from infections related to multidrug-resistant pathogens, of which several include fungal species. A high percentage of the mortalities caused by fungi are known to be biofilm-related.

This Special Issue is intended to cover the state of antifungal research, comprising new compounds with antifungal activity. We welcome reviews and original research articles covering the development/evaluation/validation of recent studies, especially those regarding multidrug resistance.

Dr. Célia Fortuna Rodrigues
Guest Editor
