The impact of fungal infections reaffirm the value of research into the ways that fungi infect humans, and how these infections can be detected, identified and treated.
Antibiotic resistant infections and multi-drug resistant infections have been on the rise in recent years. When it comes to sepsis, these infections have the potential to be much more dangerous because they can be difficult to treat.
Sepsis is the body’s life-threatening, imbalanced response to a severe infection. The condition affects 1.7 million people and takes 270,000 lives in the U.S. every year. This year, we face additional risks because of the threat of COVID-19.
