Antifungal Compounds Discovery Book PDF summary

Fungi are both the cause of many major health problems and an incredible source of compounds for developing new medicinal treatments, and with the increasing emergence of multidrug resistance, the need for new antimicrobial agents is greater than ever. Antifungal Compounds Discovery provides researchers with a detailed study of both natural and synthetic compounds that can be effective against a variety of fungal species, supporting and encouraging the design of innovative, potent new drug candidates for the treatment of fungal infections. Beginning with an introduction to both the history and latest developments in this field, the book goes on to provide helpful background information on key fungal species before outlining current antifungal therapies and reasons further development is needed. Detailed chapters then follow reviewing a broad range of natural and synthetic antifungal agents, and discussing the synergistic effect of working with both simultaneously. Finally, the book concludes by considering potential future developments in this important field. Supported with detailed schemes and key information on the biological activity of all selected compounds, Antifungal Compounds Discovery is a comprehensive guide helping researchers understand the relationship between specific chemical structures and their antifungal potency, and a key tool for all those involved in the identification and development of antimicrobial compounds. Provides an overview of the most specific mycotic infections and fungal species as background for compound development Presents the chemical formulas of all natural and synthetic compounds reviewed Combines detailed information about origin, isolation and possible therapeutic uses of all indexed compounds, including biological activity, mechanism of action and SAR information

Fungal infections such as candidoses can range from superficial mucous membrane infection to life-threatening systemic mycoses. Candida infections are a significant clinical problem globally due to rapid rise in compromised host populations including HIV/AIDS, organ transplant recipients and patients on chemotherapy. In addition, sharp increase in aging populations which are susceptible to fungal infections is expected in next few decades. Antifungal drugs are relatively difficult to develop compared to the antibacterial drugs owing to the eukaryotic nature of the

Fungi are eukaryotic microorganisms that are closely related to humans at cellular level. Human fungal pathogens belong to various classes of fungi, mainly zygo- cetes, ascomycetes, basidiomycetes, and deuteromycetes. In recent years, fungal infections have dramatically increased as a result of improved diagnosis, high frequency of catheterization, instrumentation, etc. However, the main cause remains the increasing number of immunosuppressed patients, mostly because of HIV infection and indiscriminate usage of antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agents, broad-spectrum antibiotics and prosthetic devices, and grafts

Readers will learn, that the composition of the fungal cell wall is a unique structure, which cannot be found in the human host. Consequently, the chapters outline, how the immune systems of both animals and humans have evolved to recognize conserved and unique elements of the fungal cell wall. As an application example, the authors also
