Some fungi grow as molds, while others exist in two forms, or dimorphic---either as molds or budding yeast. Fungi can cause pneumonia in healthy people who travel to endemic areas in the United States or Central America; they can also cause rapidly fatal pneumonia in immunocompromised patients recovering from chemotherapy, or HIV-infected patients with advanced disease.
There are up to 150,000 people suffering from severe asthma in the UK. From the research we discovered that they could benefit from taking antifungal medication already available from pharmacists - the pills used to treat everyday fungal infections greatly improved the symptoms of asthma in those patients that had an allergic reaction to one or more fungi.
