Title: A Too Quiet Pandemic – Fungal Disease
Date: Thursday, September 17
Time: 1:00 PM ET
About the Conference
With much of the mainstream focus on antibiotic drug resistance and viral diseases, fungi and their related invasive and mucosal infections still seem to go relatively unnoticed. There are over 1.6 million deaths annually related to severe fungal infections and there are tens of millions of mucosal infections. The need for new anti-infectives could never be greater, especially antifungals where there are only three existing classes of drugs with too few options in each. Fungal-driven diseases are diseases of opportunity, often arising in settings of immune function changes or secondary to other conditions like cancer therapy and transplant, even secondary to viral infections including COVID-19. However, while these are diseases of opportunity for fungi and representative of its own pandemic, with it comes opportunity for novel therapeutics to emerge. The unmet need has ushered in not only innovative approaches, but also changes in regulatory guidelines, incentives for drug developers, changes in trial design and execution, changes in the views of payers and renewed focus of the investment community. This panel discussion includes top innovators in the fungal drug development space.
