Flesh-eating Fungi...

I was just thinking the other day about the medical field and
its use of maggots to eat dead flesh to prevent gangrene. Does
anyone know if any studies have been done to explore the 
possibility of using a fungus in the same capacity? Is there
a fungus that consumes dead (and ONLY dead) flesh? 
The Spirit of Nature, a powerful force,
	belongs and returns to its creative source.
