Understanding the Immune Response to the Fungus Cryptococcus in Healthy People
In a new study, NIAID researchers describe the immune responses of healthy people who developed the fungal infection cryptococcosis. The researchers found that disease progression in otherwise healthy people differs from those who develop the infection due to complications that compromise the body’s immune system, like HIV infection. Therefore, different therapies should be explored for people without underlying infections. The study appears in the May 28, 2015, edition of PLOS Pathogens.
