First Cases of Deadly, Drug-Resistant Fungus Reported in US by CDC

The deadly fungus, Candida auris, is resistant to entire classes of antimicrobial drugs, limiting treatment options for those infected. Now, in a first-of-its-kind study, microbiologists at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have provided previously uninvestigated details pertaining to C. auris drug resistance and growth patterns.

Patients More Likely to Refuse Drug Therapy Than Psychotherapy for Mental Health

People seeking help for mental disorders are more likely to refuse or not complete the recommended treatment if it involves only psychotropic drugs, according to a review of research published by the American Psychological Association.
