Candida is a yeast species recognized as the most frequent etiological agent of systemic and invasive thrush in humans. Invasions can affect all tissues, organs and systems of human in various stages of development. In the last 10 years Candida infections have increased 15 times. The purpose of our study was to determine the sensitivity of four antibiotics belonging to three different groups of antifungal agents against clinical and food-borne Candida strains. Our studies showed that of all…

Typing and virulence factors of food-borne Candida spp. isolates.
Selected Essential Oils as Antifungal Agents Against Antibiotic-Resistant Candida spp.: In Vitro Study on Clinical and Food-Borne Isolates.
TLDR
High antifungal activity of examined EOs against Candida clinical and food-borne strains, including antibiotic-resistant isolates, indicates their usefulness as agents preventing the development of Candida strains of different origin.
Candida Biofilms: Environmental and Clinical Aspects
TLDR
The work presents the examples of antibiotic resistance of a variety of Candida, showing that a group of strains expressing intermediate sensitivity or resistance to the tested antibiotics include both clinical and food-borne isolates.
Antifungal Susceptibility Pattern in Otomycosis among Patients Attending a Tertiary Healthcare Institution in Port Harcourt, Nigeria
TLDR
Findings from this study underscore the importance of antifungal susceptibility testing before treatment of otomycosis in order to achieve high success rate thereby reduce cases of antIFungal resistance.
Antimicrobial Activity of Some Essential Oils on Candida Genus Clinical Isolates
TLDR
The obtained results have proved the actuality of further studies of the impact of essential oils upon microorganisms, including those with multiple resistances to medical antibacterial preparations.
Disk diffusion Method in Enriched Mueller Hinton agar for determining susceptibility of Candida isolates from various clinical specimens
TLDR
To determine antifungal susceptibility pattern of Candida by Mueller-Hinton agar media supplemented with glucose and methylene blue for disk diffusion testing, 35 Candida species were isolated from 2000 clinical specimens over 6 month’s period from July 2016 to December 2016.
Consequências da aquisição da resistência à natamicina em espécies de Candida
TLDR
The importance of the monitoring of natamycin in food is highlighted, since its residual levels in high concentrations may exert a selective pressure on Candida species constituting the gastrointestinal human commensal microbiota, in relation to its virulence and resistance.
Properties of a New Probiotic Candidate and Lactobacterin-TK2 Against Diarrhea in Calves
TLDR
In this study, some strains were isolated from traditional fermented dairy products and the feces of Holstein calves and heifers to determine probiotic properties and selected strains are capable of being used as a new probiotic candidate following in vivo trials.
Hydrophobic properties of Candida spp. under the influence of selected essential oils.
TLDR
The application of tea tree, thyme and clove essential oils, especially in combinations, decreases hydrophobicity of the tested Candida isolates with implications of a probable advantageous limitation of their ability to colonize the food production industry environment.
Antimicrobial activity of Ricinus comunis, Swietenia mahogani and Crusentia cujete ethanol extracts against multidrug resistant pathogens, recovered from a hospital environment
TLDR
Investigation of the antimicrobial potentials of ethanolic extracts of Ricinus comunis, Swietenia mahogani and Crusentia cujete against five multidrug resistant nosocomial pathogens indicates the risk of Nosocomial infections caused by multidrog resistant pathogens originating from the hospital environment is indicated.

Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis and Candida tropicalis: biology, epidemiology, pathogenicity and antifungal resistance.
TLDR
Information is provided on the current state of knowledge on the biology, identification, epidemiology, pathogenicity and antifungal resistance of C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis and C. tropicalis.
FUNGI FREQUENCE OF CANDIDA GENUS AT THE PULMONARY PATENTS, THEIR IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERISATION
TLDR
Following morphological and biochemical investigations performed in 94 isolated strains, 53 % were identified as Candida albican and 18 % strains ascandida tropicalis, and the incidence of Candida is primarily related to the endocrine status.
In vitro susceptibilities of bloodstream isolates of Candida species to six antifungal agents: results from a population-based active surveillance programme, Barcelona, Spain, 2002-2003.
TLDR
Am amphotericin B and flucytosine were active in vitro against all strains and Voriconazole and caspofungin were active against the majority of isolates, even those that were resistant to fluconazole.
Clinical Significance of Azole Antifungal Drug Cross-Resistance in Candida glabrata
TLDR
Observations suggest that C. glabrata exhibits considerable clinically significant cross-resistance between older azole drugs (fluconazole and itraconazole) and voriconazole in patients with extensive prior azole drug exposure.
Management of invasive fungal infections: a role for polyenes.

  • Medicine, Biology

TLDR
The oldest antifungal drugs, polyenes, remain useful in the treatment of IFIs because of their broad-spectrum activity, low rates of resistance and established clinical record, particularly in immunocompromised patients with breakthrough fungal infections.
Reduced expression of virulence factors in multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains
TLDR
The MDR P. aeruginosa strains investigated produced significantly lower amounts of extracellular material binding Congo Red, lower lipolytic, elastase, LasA protease, phospholipase C activity and pyocyanin quantity in culture supernatants when compared with MDS strains.
Pathological and Immunohistochemical Investigation of Naturally Occurring Systemic Candida albicans Infection in Dogs
TLDR
The clinical course, and cultural and pathological findings of systemic candidiasis are described and presumed predisposing factors are investigated in 3 dogs and the combined effect of immunosuppressants and antibiotics might have led to Candida colonization and dissemination in these dogs.
Caspofungin: a review of its use in the treatment of fungal infections.
TLDR
Caspofungin is a viable alternative to amphotericin B deoxycholate, liposomal amph esotericin B or fluconazole in the appropriate indications and was effective as salvage therapy in patients with invasive aspergillosis who were refractory to or intolerant of standard therapy.
Caspofungin for the Treatment of Immunocompromised and Severely Ill Children and Neonates with Invasive Fungal Infections
TLDR
Caspofungin is the first member of the echinocandin class of antifungals to receive an indication for the use in infants, children, and adolescents from the United States Food and Drug Administration and appears to be generally safe and well tolerated in this population.
