Antifungal resistance: more research needed

Barnes, Rosemary Ann, Gow, Neil A. R., Denning, David W., May, Robin C. and Haynes, Ken 2014. Antifungal resistance: more research needed. The Lancet 384 (9952) , p. 1427. 10.1016/S0140-6736(14)61861-4

We welcome the efforts of the Antimicrobial Resistance Funders' Forum, led by the UK Medical Research Council, to coordinate approaches for research on antimicrobial resistance, as reported by Geoff Watts (Aug 2, p 391).1 However, we wish to voice our concerns at the apparent restriction of these efforts to antibacterial resistance. Although undoubtedly an area of major global concern, bacteria are not the only microbes for which resistance is a growing threat to human health and wellbeing. In particular, drug resistance in fungal pathogens needs urgent research attention.
