Utility of beta-glucan for the diagnosis of invasive fungal infections
Title of the conference
5th Congress on Trends in Medical Mycology
Valencia, Spain, October 2-5, 2011
Publication type : Meeting Abstract
(1,3)-b-D-glucan is a component of the fungal cell wall. New assays have made it possible to detect this molecule in a variety of clinical samples such as blood, cerebrospinal fluid, and bronchioalveolar lavage fluid. Detection of this molecule through several assays has been validated as an adjunct method to diagnose invasive fungal infections. With several decades of data and recent positive meta-analyses, these assays have now been sufficiently studied and are ready to enter the mainstream of diagnosis in medical mycology.
