A diffusion chamber technique for testing of antifungal drugs against Sporothrix schenckii in vivo.

Abstract

Growth of the yeast form of Sporothrix schenckii (ATCC 14804) was determined in diffusion chambers with 0.45 and 3.0 micron pore size over a period of 24 to 192 h after subcutaneous implantation into mice. Numbers of S. schenckii in 0.45 micron chambers increased significantly by 192 h when inocula of 10(3) and 10(5) colony forming units were implanted. In… (More)
