The aim of the present paper is to evaluate the effect of the high molecular weight chitosan (HMWC) and of sodium alginate (NaAL) on surface hydrophobicity of Candida albicans and on adhesion of the yeast to epithelial cells and fibroblasts of different proceeding. For this study, a collection strain and seven isolates of C. albicans from saliva (patients with denture stomatitis) were grown in Sabouraud glucose agar supplemented with HMWC or NaAL or in absence of them (control). Hydrophobicity… 

Figures from this paper

Actividad biológica in vitro del gel de quitosano sobre candida albicans
It was observed that chitosan inhibited theFungal growth to an MIC of 1mg/ml, showing deformation of the fungal cell and absence of pseudohyphae, proving that this biomaterial is highly effective against Candida albicans.
Antimicrobial and Antibiofilm Activity of Chitosan on the Oral Pathogen Candida albicans
Evaluating the capability of chitosan to inhibit C. albicans growth and biofilm formation showed the potential of this molecule to be used as an effective anti-Candida agent capable of acting upon C.Albicans infections.
The effect of nanochitosans particles on Candida biofilm formation
By adding nano-chitosan particles to acrylic resins, biofilm formation of Candida species was significantly reduced and to decrease the organization of biofilm and denture stomatitis, the use of acrylics with nano- chitOSan particles in producing dentures is recommended.
Cell surface hydrophobicity of Candida albicans isolated from elder patients undergoing denture-related candidosis.
The results let to the inference that natural populations of C. albicans from patients with and without clinical manifestation denture-related candidosis do not differ one from the other regarding to CSH.
Antifungal and post-antifungal effects of chlorhexidine, fluconazole, chitosan and its combinations on Candida albicans.
The results imply that short exposures to sub-inhibitory concentrations of the antifungal agents under analysis, isolated or combined, can modulate the way virulence factors get manifested, thus decreasing their pathogenicity.
A quitosana como biomaterial odontológico: estado da arte
The state of the art on chitosan-based applications for odontology is addressed, which shows that the material has potential in several applications of varied technological interests, and especially in the biomedical area.
Mucus penetration enhanced lipid polymer nanoparticles improve the eradication rate of Helicobacter pylori biofilm.
Candida-associated denture stomatitis.
A correct oral hygiene is important for the control of the bacterial biofilm present on the denture and on the oral mucosa and it is the fundamental base for the prophylaxis and the therapy of the Candida-associated denture stomatitis.


Efecto de Quitosan y Alginato de Sodio sobre la adheren- cia de C Albicans Autoctonas a Células Epiteliales Buca- les. (in Vitro)
Both biopolymers are effective, however, NaAl is a stronger inhibitor of adherence than HMWCh, which means that in combination or alone, theseBiopolymers could be used in the treatment of oral candidosis.
Sub-therapeutic exposure to polyene antimycotics elicits a post-antifungal effect (PAFE) and depresses the cell surface hydrophobicity of oral Candida albicans isolates.
Additional mechanisms by which polyene antimycotics may operate in vivo to suppress candidal pathogenicity are elucidated.
Surface Hydrophobicity Changes of Two Candida albicans Serotype B mnn4Δ Mutants
The present study reports the first genetic knockout constructed in a serotype B C. albicans strain, which represents an important step for dissecting the regulation of CSH.
Surface hydrophobicity changes of two Candida albicans serotype B mnn4delta mutants.
The first genetic knockout constructed in a serotype B C. albicans strain represents an important step for dissecting the regulation of CSH and demonstrates an unanticipated perturbation in the acid-stable mannan fraction.
Adhesion of Candida parapsilosis to epithelial and acrylic surfaces correlates with cell surface hydrophobicity
Results shed further light on the intimate relationship between adherence and CSH in candidal colonization and imply that both C. parapsilosis and C. albicans are equally potent in colonizing mucosal surfaces with respect to the attributes investigated.
Effect of salivary secretory IgA on the adhesion of Candida albicans to polystyrene.
The results suggest that whole saliva plays a different role in the adhesion of C. albicans to polystyrene depending on the morphological phase of C., and may give new insights into the conflicting role of saliva in the developing denture stomatitis.
