Azole resistance in Aspergillus fumigatus: the next step

Azole resistance is a concern for the management of diseases caused by Aspergillus fumigatus in humans. Azole fungicide use in the environment has been identified as possible cause for resistance development, and thus increases the complexity and number of stakeholders involved in this emerging problem. We aim to bring together relevant stakeholders including medical and agricultural researchers, representatives from the government, fungicide producers and users, and public health to review the current evidence supporting environmental resistance selection and to discuss which research and measures are needed to retain the azole class for environmental and medical applications.
