Researchers in US and Israel Detect Fungal DNA in Most Cancer Types Found in the Human Body

Two separately published studies have found fungal DNA in various cancers in the human body.  However, the researchers are unclear on how the fungi got into the cancer cells and if it is affecting the cancers’ pathology.  Nevertheless, these discoveries could lead to utilizing tumor-associated fungal DNA as clinical laboratory diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers in the fight against cancer.
