Los Angeles Times

Federal health officials have announced they are planning clinical trials of two common treatments for valley fever.

U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who has worked for several years to increase federal response to valley fever, says the clinical trials will raise awareness of the fungal disease and inch it closer to being combated with a vaccine. “That is our ultimate goal,” he told a packed meeting hall of valley fever victims and survivors Monday evening in Bakersfield.
