The susceptibilities of 25 clinical isolates of various Aspergillus species (Aspergillus fumigatus, A. flavus, A. terreus, A. ustus, and A. nidulans) to itraconazole (ITC) and amphotericin B (AMB) were determined using the standard proposed by NCCLS for antifungal susceptibility testing of[filamentous fungi, a modification of this method using spectrophotometric readings, and a colorimetric method using the tetrazolium salt 2,3-bis [2-methoxy-4-nitro-5-[(sulfenylamino) carbonyl]-2H-tetrazolium… CONTINUE READING
