New ECMM Working Group launched

TriReg - A Europe-wide Study on Trichosporonosis has been launched. Trichosporonosis is one of the so-called "emerging fungal infections" for which there are no diagnostic and therapeutic standards. TriReg has now been created to overcome the lack of knowledge on epidemiology, clinical course, biology and pathomechanisms of trichosporonosis in order to develop an evidence-based approach to the diagnosis.

The register is a web-based and open to everybody encountering a case of invasive trichosporonosis in their clinical practice and wishes to contribute the case to the registry.

New contributors are cordially invited to contribute to make TriReg a success! Read more...
