In a collaborative study between Wayne State University and the University of Idaho, the Rowley lab has uncovered that the opportunistic pathogen Candida glabrata is uniquely susceptible to killer toxins produced by Saccharomyces cerevisiae.


The unique and broad-spectrum activity of killer toxins at low pH could mean the development of more effective treatments for drug-resistant vulvovaginal candidiasis.
