Long-term inserted and surgically implanted catheters can be colonised by Candida spp. Candida biofilms in vitro are often resistant to antifungal agents. The aim of this study was to investigate the in vitro activity of micafungin (MFG) against six Candida spp. biofilms on polystyrene (PS) and central venous catheter (CVC) sections. Safranin staining and differential interference contrast microscopy were used to demonstrate biofilm production. MFG activity was determined by the reduction in… CONTINUE READING
