One-hundred and thirteen Candida albicans strains isolated from patients infected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and twenty five from HIV-negative individuals were studied. The C. albicans strains isolated from different sites of the body were tested for germ-tube (GT), phospholipase production and serotype. The results obtained indicate that the serotype A was predominant in all the groups except for the vaginal strains. No correlation was observed between phospholipase activity and… CONTINUE READING
