BACKGROUND Although amphotericin B (AMB) has a wide spectrum of activity that encompasses the majority of yeast isolates, there have been recent reports suggesting that some yeast isolates exhibit decreased susceptibility to AMB. However, in vitro AMB susceptibility of yeast species isolates from blood cultures in Korea has not been fully surveyed… CONTINUE READING
