  • Fungal pathogens developing resistance to treatment

    Aspergillus and Candida auris are developing drug resistance and becoming more difficult to treat, causing some patients to switch from one medication to the next and others to face the possibility of running out of treatment options. Data from the CDC indicate that C. auris infections increased eightfold in the US from 2017 to 2021, and the mortality rate is 30% to 60%, while aspergillosis cases rose 3% each year from 2000 to 2013 and cause more than 14,000 hospitalizations annually.
