Abstract. Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans form dense biofilms together on internal medical devices and in doing so, establish a source of infection that is difficult to treat and can cause extensive local and systemic disease. The goal of the present study was to gain further insight into whether interactions between these two species within a biofilm alter their attachment to artificial surfaces and growth rates. After first establishing that S. aureus and C. albicans interact with… Expand
Candida albicans Mycofilms Support Staphylococcus aureus Colonization and Enhances Miconazole Resistance in Dual-Species Interactions
TLDR
Analysis of the ECM revealed the importance of extracellular DNA, which supported the adhesion of S. aureus and the development of the dual-species biofilm structures, though also provides translational opportunities to manage them more effectively. Expand
Candida albicans interaction with Gram-positive bacteria within interkingdom biofilms.
TLDR
A better understanding of this complicated, fast-paced world of multi-kingdom biofilms will contribute to develop new effective ways to fight biofilm-related infections. Expand
Candida albicans: Molecular interactions with Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
Interactions between C. albicans and bacterial species with which it is commonly isolated and Staphylococcus aureus are reviewed in order to look into the spectrum of biologically relevant fungal–bacterial interactions that have been described. Expand
Role of extracellular polymeric substances in polymicrobial biofilm infections of Staphylococcus epidermidis and Candida albicans modelled in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
The effect of EPS in polymicrobial biofilm infections is illustrated by using a simple but efficient invertebrate model and seems to interfere with the bacterial attachment to hyphae, since the EPS overproducing S. epidermidis strain was most virulent. Expand
CANDIDA ALBICANS AND STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS CO-INFECTION IN MICE AFTER ANTIBIOTIC-INDUCED DYSBIOSIS
TLDR
Such bacterial-fungal co-infection reduce substantially the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy and the likelihood of successful treatment and can not be ignored when choosing the appropriate treatment. Expand
Interactions of Candida albicans Cells with Aerobic and Anaerobic Bacteria during Formation of Mixed Biofilms in the Oral Cavity
Biofilm is a compact coating formed on various artificial and physiologic surfaces by a population of microorganisms which in this habitat establish a close cooperation, exploiting both the physicalExpand
Unraveling How Candida albicans Forms Sexual Biofilms
TLDR
Sexual biofilms could serve as a protective niche to support genetic exchange between mating-competent cells, and thus may represent an adaptive mechanism to increase population diversity in dynamic environments. Expand
Candida albicans and Staphylococcus Species: A Threatening Twosome
TLDR
Characterizing the interactions between C. albicans with Staphylococcus bacteria could lead to the development of novel therapeutic approaches that target polymicrobial infections. Expand
Biofilm formation by staphylococci in health-related environments and recent reports on their control using natural compounds
TLDR
This review critically assesses recent cases on the biofilm formation by S. aureus, S. epidermidis, and other staphylococci reported in health-related environments and represents potential anti-biofilm agents which may reduce the burden of antibiotic resistance. Expand
Caspofungin Inhibits Mixed Biofilms of Candida albicans and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Displays Effectiveness in Coinfected Galleria mellonella Larvae
TLDR
Echinocandins can be a therapeutic option for the treatment of mixed infections caused by C. albicans and S. aureus and their effectiveness in vivo using the Galleria mellonella coinfection model is evaluated. Expand

Mixed species biofilms of Candida albicans and Staphylococcus epidermidis.
TLDR
The findings suggest that fungal cells can modulate the action of antibiotics, and that bacteria can affect antifungal activity in mixed fungal-bacterial biofilms. Expand
Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus Form Polymicrobial Biofilms: Effects on Antimicrobial Resistance
TLDR
Although S. aureus formed poor monoculture biofilms in serum, it formed a substantial polymicrobial biofilm in the presence of C. albicans, and resistance to vancomycin was enhanced within the polymicro microbial biofilm, which required viable C.Albicans matrix, suggesting that S.Aureus may become coated in the matrix secreted by C.albicans.

Microbial interactions and differential protein expression in Staphylococcus aureus –Candida albicans dual-species biofilms
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that the hyphae-mediated enhanced pathogenesis of S. aureus may not only be due to physical interactions but can also be attributed to the differential regulation of specific virulence factors induced during polymicrobial growth. Expand
Cross-kingdom interactions: Candida albicans and bacteria.
TLDR
Understanding the mechanisms of adhesion and signaling involved in fungal-bacterial interactions may lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies for impeding microbial colonization and development of polymicrobial disease. Expand
Effect of oral bacteria on growth and survival of Candida albicans biofilms.
TLDR
The data indicate that, quantitative and qualitative nature of the bacteria modulate C. albicans biofilm formation in mixed species environments such as the oral cavity and co-culture with differing concentrations of bacteria had variable effects on CandidaBiofilm formation. Expand
Candida biofilms and their role in infection.
TLDR
Recent studies with mixed biofilms containing Candida and bacterial species suggest that extensive and striking interactions occur between the prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells in these adherent populations. Expand
Characteristics of biofilm formation by Candida albicans.
TLDR
Mature C. albicans biofilms displayed a complex three dimensional structure which demonstrated spatial heterogeneity and a typical architecture showing microcolonies with ramifying water channels, and the XTT-reduction assay showed a linear relationship between cellular density of the biofilm and metabolic activity.

Protection by Candida albicans of Staphylococcus aureus in the establishment of dual infection in mice
TLDR
It was concluded that this growth pattern in some way protected the bacteria and was the basis for the generalized fungal stimulation of the bacterial infections observed. Expand

TLDR
Phage typing methods demonstrated that the staphylococcal infection was due to the bacterial organisms originally injected, and a minimum dose of C. albicans was necessary for the amplification of virulence of S. aureus to take place. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that bacterial adhesion mostly reduces subsequent adhesion of yeast, while only a few bacterial strains stimulate adhesionOf yeast, provided salivary adhesion mediators are present. Expand
