Abstract

The topic of immunity to fungal infections is of interest to a wide range of disciplines, from microbiology to immunology. It is of particular interest in terms of therapy of HIV-infected individuals, and patients with cancer or individuals who have received transplants. Understanding the nature and function of the immune response to fungi is an exciting challenge that might set the stage for new approaches to the treatment of fungal diseases, from immunotherapy to vaccines. The past decade has witnessed the development of a wide range of new approaches to elucidate events that occur at the host-fungus interface.
