Caspofungin activity against clinical isolates of azole cross-resistant Candida glabrata overexpressing efflux pump genes.

OBJECTIVES Several studies have documented the potent in vitro activity of caspofungin against Candida spp. This is of special concern for Candida glabrata infections that are often resistant to many azole antifungal agents and, consequently, difficult to treat. The aim of the present study was to expand the data on the in vitro activity of caspofungin… CONTINUE READING
