Special Issue "Fungal Infections in Transplant Recipients"
A special issue of Journal of Fungi (ISSN 2309-608X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (25 May 2015).
Solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients are at major risk of developing invasive fungal infections. Advances in prevention, diagnosis and treatment have made a major impact on morbidity and mortality related to such infections. However, rates of invasive fungal infection remain substantial, diagnostic tests for early detection are often inaccurate, treatment can prove toxic, long and costly and devastating outcomes of infection are all too common.
This Special Issue of the Journal of Fungi will examine interactions between immunocompromised hosts and fungal pathogens, as well as issues in the epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of invasive fungal infections in transplant recipients. A solid understanding of the state of the art and science in these fields is essential for improving patient care now, and for improving diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in the future.
