The immune defence mechanisms against fungal infections are of two types – Innate immunity and adaptive immunity. Cell mediated immunity plays a major role against fungal infections by destroying fungus and protects body from reinfection. Antibody responses like Th1 cell mediated immunity helps in the depletion of fungal infection, while Th2 immunity leads to susceptibility of systemic fungal infections.
