Since the late 1960s, we have been conducting a series of immunochemical studies on the mannans of the genus Candida with emphasis on the structural determination of antigenic factors composing of the antigenic formula of medically relevant Candida species proposed by Tsuchiya and his colleagues. This review is a chronological account of the structural studies on 10 antigenic factors conducted by two groups of workers: Fukazawa, the senior student of Tsuchiya, and Suzuki.
