About this book

With the growing frequency of fungal infections even as resistance to existing antifungal agents increases, methods for finding novel drug targets and evaluating antifungal resistance have become more important than ever. In Antifungal Agents: Methods and Protocols, expert scientists describe in detail the state-of-the-art molecular methods they have optimized for studying antifungal resistance, for discovering and evaluating both new and existing antifungal drugs, and for understanding the host response and immunotherapy of such agents. Many of the protocols were developed in the laboratory and, when a method is limited to specific organisms, include alternative techniques to expand their application. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Medicine™ series format, each offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Cutting-edge and highly practical, Antifungal Agents: Methods and Protocols offers clinician-scientists, microbiologists, and molecular biologists the productive tools they need today in order to understand and successfully develop new therapeutic agents for yeast, mold, and fungal infections.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Due to the increased prevalence in systemic fungal infections worldwide, more knowledge is needed about antifungal drug testing and research is very important. This book, which is one in the series of ‘Methods in Molecular Medicine’, describes both traditional and new techniques for the investigation of antifungal resistance and for the development and evaluation of new compounds. … By and large, this is an interesting book for mycological researchers in both laboratory and clinical medicine." (Prof. Jan Faergemann, Acta Dermato-Venereologica, Vol. 86, August, 2006)
