To the vaccine, tists develop vaccine fights fungusA group of scientists in Italy have a vaccine with the potential to control fungal pathogens that commonly infect humans developed to protect, according to to a study by Torosantucci and colleagues on the 5th September issue of the Journal of Experimental Medicine. Although these fungi pose little threat to people with healthy immune systems, it can be lethal infections in patients whose immune systems been weakened by cancer treatments or post-transplant immunosuppressive therapies. No anti-fungal vaccines are currently available.

The vaccine protected rodents from fatal fungal infections by triggering the production of anti-beta-glucan antibodies. These antibodies against the invading fungal cell wall stuck and prevents the fungus to grow. The authors now want to test the vaccine in humans and hope the results are equally promising.IL-1 beta was to driving of the inflammatory response in asthma is based airway hyper has been implicated.
