Antifungal agents: mode of action in yeast cells.
In order to overcome the problems derived from the exploitation of azole drugs, macrolides and echinocandins, novel targets were explored. Expand
Candida albicans, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus mutans colonization in patients wearing dental prosthesis.
This illness-bearing condition is more frequent in patients with denture stomatitis, even though dental prosthesis colonization is lower than in the oral mucous, and its relationship with other potential clinical co-factors is investigated. Expand
Minimum fungicidal concentrations of amphotericin B for bloodstream Candida species.
Substantial differences were found from those previously reported between amphotericin B MIC and MFCs for Candida spp. Expand
Prospective Multicenter Study of the Epidemiology, Molecular Identification, and Antifungal Susceptibility of Candida parapsilosis, Candida orthopsilosis, and Candida metapsilosis Isolated from
This study confirms the different prevalence of C. parapsilosis complex candidemia among age groups: neither C. orthopsilosis nor C. metapsilotic was isolated from adults and the elderly, and the disparity in antifungal susceptibility among species could be important for therapy. Expand
Isolation of Candida africana, probable atypical strains of Candida albicans, from a patient with vaginitis.
The isolation of Candida africana from a patient with vaginitis is described, which is a doubtful species which possibly represents atypical strains ofcandida albicans. Expand

It is shown that Candida parapsilosis has been associated to candidaemia in neonates and young adults, and an important and worrying issue is that mortality due to invasive candidiasis remains unacceptably high. Expand
In vitro Susceptibility of Candida dubliniensis to Current and New Antifungal Agents
The new liposomal and lipidic formulations of AMB, LNYT, and the new triazoles and echinocandins may provide new alternatives to FLC for the treatment of infections by C. dubliniensis. Expand
Prevalence and antifungal susceptibility patterns of new cryptic species inside the species complexes Candida parapsilosis and Candida glabrata among blood isolates from a Spanish tertiary hospital.
C. metapsilosis and C. orthopsilosis are associated with human disease and show a different antifungal susceptibility profile compared with C. parpsilosis sensu stricto, which is resistant to fluconazole and 5-fluorocytosine. Expand
Epidemiology, species distribution and in vitro antifungal susceptibility of fungaemia in a Spanish multicentre prospective survey.
Fungaemia is more common in non-critical patients and among elderly patients, and in Candida krusei for itraconazole and C. glabrata, nearly 90% of yeasts are susceptible to all antifungal agents tested. Expand
Candida dubliniensis, a new fungal pathogen
Candida dubliniensis is a recently described opportunistic pathogen that is closely related to C. albicans but differs from it with respect to epidemiology, certain virulence characteristics, and the ability to develop fluconazole resistance in vitro. Expand
