Special Issue in Journal of Fungi: Mushrooms—Mycotherapy and Mycochemistry 2.0
More than a billion people are suffering from various fungal infections, with more than 1.5 million having fatal consequences. These infections are difficult to treat, making the mortality rates high, even in the 21st century, despite the various antifungals that are currently available. Moreover, fungal biofilms are difficult to treat since they show resistance to the host immune system and conventional antifungal treatments when compared to free-floating cells.
This Special Issue will cover the following topics, including, but is not limited to:
*Synthetic and natural antifungals;
*Biocontrol of pathogenic fungi;
*Compounds acting as fungal biofilm inhibitors;
*Mechanisms of antifungal action;
*Mechanisms of fungal resistance to antifungals;
*Harmful effects of synthetic and natural fungicides;
*Beneficial health effects of natural antifungals and other biological effects.
