IL-17 takes center stage in dermatophytosis


Sparber, Florian; LeibundGut-Landmann, Salomé (2018). IL-17 takes center stage in dermatophytosis. Journal of Investigative Dermatology, 138(8):1691-1693.

Abstract

The cytokine IL-17 plays a critical role in host defense against fungal infections. So far, clinical relevance for IL-17 antifungal activity focused on mucocutaneous candidiasis. Burstein and colleagues now provide evidence that type 17 immunity is also essential for defense against dermatophytosis.
