Abstract

This discussion is intended to be an overview of current advances in the development of fungal cell wall vaccines with an emphasis on ; it is not a comprehensive historical review of all fungal cell wall vaccines. Selected, more recent, innovative strategies for developing fungal vaccines will be highlighted. Both scientific and logistical obstacles related to the development of, and clinical use of, fungal vaccines will be discussed.
