This abstract emphasizes the importance of anti-fungal agents in combating fungal infections and the ongoing research in this field to address the emergence of drug-resistant strains. These diseases are caused by fungi that can flourish in a variety of conditions and spread rapidly to people with weakened immune systems. Treatment plans have also become more challenging as a result of the rising incidence of drugresistant fungus strains and the increased usage of immunosuppressive medications... Read More»
