Antifungal Resistant Aspergillus Strain

Aspergillus was cultured from my sinuses in 2000. I have been on some sort of antifungal or another ever since. whenever we try to either lower the dose or stop, my symptoms return. I belong to a support group for Aspergillus through yahoo groups. This support group is part of the Fungal Research Trust.



Recently the trust started a blog.

We could be breathing in a resistant strain of Aspergillus. Knowing what I have experienced from my exposure to Aspergillus along with other molds, this is very frightening. Read the blog post at:
