Paradoxical effect of caspofungin against Candida bloodstream isolates is mediated by multiple pathways but eliminated in human serum.


Paradoxical growth of Candida in vitro at echinocandin concentrations exceeding the MIC is well described, but the clinical relevance is unknown. We assessed echinocandin paradoxical effects against Candida bloodstream isolates (BSI) in the presence or absence of human serum and investigated regulatory mechanisms. As determined by broth microdilution, a… (More)
