Aspergillosis, the leading fungal cause of mortality in immunocompromised patients, presents a serious worldwide challenge—particularly in the face of increasing antifungal resistance. Bringing together the world’s leaders in the Aspergillus and aspergillosis fields to promote cross-disciplinary collaboration among clinicians, industry, and scientific experts, the “Advances Against Aspergillosis” conference was held January 26–28, 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey. Among the topics included are the application of diagnostic markers to invasive aspergillosis in children, risk stratification for invasive aspergillosis in immunocompromised patients, use of biological agents for the treatment of fungal asthma and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, immune regulation in idiopathic bronchiectasis, and management of chronic pulmonary aspergillosis.
