Why is invasive aspergillosis such a difficult disease to diagnose and treat? by Marta Stanzani

Dr Stanzani explains that fungal cells are very similar to human cells, and that drugs which are toxic to fungals cells may have the same effect on human cells. Mortality in invasive aspergillosis depends largely on the timing of the intervention, timely diagnosis and the state of the patient’s defences – treatment is much more effective when people have an intact immune system.

Getting antifungal levels right - why does it matter? by David Andes

Antifungal drugs (e.g. Itraconazole, Voriconazole and Posaconazole) have a variable and unpredictable dose–concentration relationship, and therefore need careful concentration management. Problems may occur whether the concentration is either too low or too high, and it is difficult to maintain a concentration that falls within the therapeutic window.
