Oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC) is the most common opportunistic infection in immunosuppressed patients. In OPC, Candida albicans persists intraepithelially triggering inflammatory events, without generally causing invasive infection. Since neutrophils play an important role in preventing invasive infection and since they establish contact with the microorganisms only within the epithelial cell layer, we examined the ability of Candida-infected oral epithelial cells to augment neutrophil… CONTINUE READING
