Clinical Trials: Yeast Infection (Candidiasis)

About Yeast Infection (Candidiasis)

Yeast Infection, also known as candidiasis, is a fungal infection characterized by the overgrowth of yeast on or in moist areas of the body. Superficial yeast infections can affect the mouth (thrush) or vagina (vaginitis), while systemic yeast infections are more severe, affecting the digestive tract or esophagus. These infections are very common among humans, and the fungal growth is limited by the immune system. Yeast infections can be efficiently treated with antibiotics.
