The Fungal Infection Trust is a charity based in the UK and is the successor to the Fungal Research Trust, which was founded in 1991. The charity's aims are:
The FIT set up and supports The Aspergillus Website and Aspergillus Website for Patients, a resource which provides educational information and support for patients, doctors and scientists who deal with Aspergillus infections. Aspergillus infections can be fatal in people undergoing treatments for cancer, after transplant, and those whose immune system is suppressed for whatever reason, including steroid treatments. Aspergillus can also cause long term destructive lung and sinus diseases.
FIT also provides detailed information for the professional on the diagnosis and treatment of every other serious fungal infection using its LIFE-Worldwide website.
