OBJECTIVES Caspofungin and micafungin belong to the echinocandins; the mechanism of action of echinocandins is based on the inhibition of (1,3)-beta-D-glucan synthase. The aim of this study was to investigate in vitro the optimal antifungal lock treatment details against a Candida albicans biofilm. METHODS An in vitro model of a C. albicans (ATCC 3153 or ATCC 66396) biofilm associated with 100% silicone catheters was used. The effectiveness of the antifungal treatment was assayed against… CONTINUE READING
