Drug-treated fungi presented irreversible ultrastructural alterations, including invagination of the plasmatic membrane and cell wall damage. Alternatively, drugs that inhibit melanin synthesis, already discussed in this review, could be administered together with the anti-CMH mAb, increasing the efficacy of these antibodies. As discussed above, its life cycle comprises different morphological states that include reproduction structures conidia and fungal forms usually found in the saprophytic mycelia and parasitic stage sclerotic bodies Fig.
