Anticandidal Therapeutics: Discovery and Development helps researchers form the basis of discovery and development of novel anticandidal therapies. In 14 chapters, the book provides collective information on anticandidal agents and their discovery and development with respect to major drug transporter families, different stages of anticandidal agent development, recent trends and progress in antifungal translational research, clinical study status of anticandidal therapeutic agents, and drug repurposing for the development of novel anticandidals. This book provides readers with comprehensive knowledge on the fungal human infection candida and the development of anticandidal drugs. Developments of anti-fungal agents have declined as compared to other antibiotics. There is an urgent need for both prophylactic and therapeutic treatments worldwide to control the severity of infections caused by Candida.
