Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fungal infections—especially invasive fungal infections (IFI)—are rising at an alarming rate in both developed and developing countries. Worse, they produce a high rate of fatality in immunocompromised victims. The increasing incidence of IFI and the correspondingly swift rise in drug resistance to currently used clinical and environmental antifungals further challenge our public health systems. We are therefore pleased to announce this Special Issue of Pathogens entitled “Topical Advisory Panel Members’ Collection Series: Clinical Trends in Human Fungal Infections”. Herein, we collect clinical studies on human fungal pathogens recommended by the Topical Advisory Panel Members and other researchers. One of our aims is to create a good environment to foster further research and collaboration among Pathogens, authors, and other physicians working in this field. This collection includes but is not limited to articles on clinical studies, cases reports, and reviews. All accepted papers will be published with full open access after peer review. Some of the topics we hope to cover include case reports of human fungal infections (topical and invasive fungal infection), novel antifungal therapies, epidemiology, and clinical studies, including diagnostic methods and drug sensitivity screening.
