What we're up against with this beast called candida

A new study has found that candida can have a full sexual cycle, even though it is missing the genes for reproduction.

"In a paper published online May 24 in Nature, Heitman's team reports that eight Candida species which have a sexual cycle were missing many of the genes related to reproduction found in other species.

The unrecognized sex cycle could mean we need to develop new treatments to combat what is really happening in humans infected by yeast," said co-author Jennifer Reedy M.D. Ph.D.
