Severe Fungal Infections

I came across this paper and it somehow put a period to my hunch that a lot of patients on chemotherapy drugs do have fungal infections, severe or not.

In most cases I see a lot of patients with fungal infections that drives the immune system to berserk mode. Its just that the infections are most of the time, asymptomatic so its not addressed.

A lot of patients here are given these new drugs.

We are being invaded!!!

I find it a bit disconcerting that Pharma companies are trying to get to med bloggers! First sponsoring events, then ads? then what???

Blogs are personal, IMHO. When commercial companies come in, opinions can become a bit tricky :)

What you think?
