Candida haemulonii complex: species identification and antifungal susceptibility profiles of clinical isolates from Brazil.
TLDR
The results reinforce the importance of molecular identification in differentiating species of the C. haemulonii complex and demonstrate the antifungal multiresistant profile of clinical isolates of this fungal complex represents a challenge to the treatment of infections.
First description of Candida nivariensis in Brazil: antifungal susceptibility profile and potential virulence attributes
TLDR
This study reinforces the pathogenic potential of C. nivariensis and its possible resistance profile to the azolic drugs generally used for candidiasis management.
A case-series of bloodstream infections caused by the Meyerozyma guilliermondii species complex at a reference center of oncology in Brazil.
TLDR
The reduced antifungal susceptibility and a variable production of virulence-related enzymes by Meyerozyma spp.
Production of Secreted Carbohydrates that Present Immunologic Similarities with the Cryptococcus Glucuronoxylomannan by Members of the Trichosporonaceae Family: A Comparative Study Among Species of
TLDR
Results add several species to the list of fungal pathogens that produce glycans of the GXM type and bring information about the origin of potential false-positive results on immunological tests for diagnosis of cryptococcosis based on GXM detection.
STUDIES ON THE PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF THE SUPERFAMILY OPOMYZOIDEA WITH AN ASSESSMENT OF THE PHYLOGENETIC UTILITY OF THE INTERNAL FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE TRACT AND A GENERIC REVISION OF
TLDR
This work is directed at defining and elucidating some of the basic problems in the phylogenetic classification of the Opomyzoidea, and provides evidence for the monophyly of the Aulacigaster, and the included species groups.
