ABSTRACT We prospectively determined the antifungal susceptibility of yeast isolates causing fungemia using the Etest on direct blood samples (195 prospectively collected and 133 laboratory prepared). We compared the Etest direct (24 h of incubation) with CLSI M27-A3 and the standard Etest methodologies for fluconazole, voriconazole, posaconazole, isavuconazole, caspofungin, and amphotericin B. Strains were classified as susceptible, resistant, or nonsusceptible using CLSI breakpoints… Expand
Agreement of Direct Antifungal Susceptibility Testing from Positive Blood Culture Bottles with the Conventional Method for Candida Species
TLDR
Antifungal disk diffusion directly from blood culture bottles is a rapid and easy method for fluconazole and voriconazole susceptibility testing for timely tailoring of candidemia therapy. Expand
Resistance to Echinocandins in Candida Can Be Detected by Performing the Etest Directly on Blood Culture Samples
TLDR
When performed directly on positive blood cultures from patients with candidemia, the Etest with micaf ungin and anidulafungin is a reliable procedure for the rapid testing of susceptibility to echinocandins in Candida species isolates. Expand
Susceptibility Test Methods: Yeasts and Filamentous Fungi*
TLDR
The development of the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) reference method M27-A3 has improved the reproducibility of in vitro antifungal susceptibility data and facilitated the establishment of interpretive breakpoints for the triazoles fluconazole, itraconazoles, and voriconazole and the echinocandins. Expand
Identification and broth-microdilution antifungal susceptibility testing of yeast directly from automated blood cultures.
TLDR
Direct-ID and subsequent direct-AFST is a rapid and robust method to reduce the turnaround time for the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis. Expand
Antifungal Susceptibility Testing of Candida and Cryptococcus Species and Mechanisms of Resistance: Implications for Clinical Laboratories
TLDR
Antifungal susceptibility testing of yeasts is important to detect drug resistance, and MICs have clinical utility for the azoles but detecting echinocandin resistance by genotypic methods is preferred. Expand
Antifungal Susceptibly Testing by Concentration Gradient Strip Etest Method for Fungal Isolates: A Review
TLDR
The gradient strip method could be a valuable alternative for detection of emerging resistance (non-wild-type isolates) as Etest epidemiological cutoff values have been recently defined for several drug-species combinations. Expand
Direct Fluconazole Disk Susceptibility Testing for Candida glabrata-Positive Blood Cultures
TLDR
Direct antifungal disk susceptibility testing from blood cultures is a rapid and easy to perform method to determine fluconazole susceptibility of C. glabrata isolates and can be used safely to reduce susceptibility report time and improve clinical decision making regarding appropriate treatment. Expand
The Etest Performed Directly on Blood Culture Bottles Is a Reliable Tool for Detection of Fluconazole-Resistant Candida albicans Isolates
TLDR
ETDIR is a reliable procedure when screening for the presence of fluconazole resistance in C. albicans, according to CLSI M27-A3 and EUCAST EDef 7.2 procedures. Expand
Fluconazole-containing agar Sabouraud dextrose plates are not useful when screening for susceptibility in Candida albicans.
TLDR
The use of fluconazole-containing Sabouraud dextrose agar plates was not a reliable method to detect fluconzole susceptibility in C. albicans isolates; growth of the isolates was a trailing effect rather than true resistance. Expand
Growth kinetics in Candida spp.: Differences between species and potential impact on antifungal susceptibility testing as described by the EUCAST.
TLDR
Speeding up antifungal susceptibility results could be possible for some isolates, particularly C. glabrata, C. tropicalis, and C. krusei, after the incubation and medium conditions recommended by the EUCAST. Expand

TLDR
The Etest method was feasible for direct susceptibility testing of blood cultures positive for yeasts because it could be read between 24 and 48 h after direct inoculation, whenever the inhibition zones were discernible. Expand
Evaluation of direct E-test on lower respiratory tract samples: a rapid and accurate procedure for antimicrobial susceptibility testing.
TLDR
DET on respiratory samples is a rapid technique that provides susceptibility results in 18 to 24 h comparable with these obtained by MBD, and readings of DET were easy to interpret and improved with transmitted light. Expand
Correlation of MIC with Outcome for Candida Species Tested against Voriconazole: Analysis and Proposal for Interpretive Breakpoints
TLDR
Using data generated by standardized broth microdilution and disk diffusion test methods, the Antifungal Susceptibility Subcommittee of the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute has proposed interpretive breakpoints for voriconazole and Candida species. Expand
Susceptibility Testing of Fluconazole by the NCCLS Broth Macrodilution Method, E-Test, and Disk Diffusion for Application in the Routine Laboratory
TLDR
The Rosco tablet and the E-test showed the best agreement with the NCCLS reference method, especially when newly established breakpoints of R ≤ 10 mm and S ≥ 21 mm were used. Expand

TLDR
The agar-based methods performed well in identifying isolates with resistance to fluconazole and decreased susceptibility to voriconazole. Expand

TLDR
It appears that the 24-h broth microdilution voriconazole MIC is not as clinically useful as the 48-h reference MIC, and further characterization of these falsely susceptible MICs for three of the four common Candida spp. Expand
Interpretive Breakpoints for Fluconazole and Candida Revisited: a Blueprint for the Future of Antifungal Susceptibility Testing
TLDR
Analysis of available data for 1,295 patient-episode-isolate events from 12 published clinical studies demonstrated an overall success rate of 77%, including 85% for those episodes in which the fluconazole MIC was ≤8 μg/ml, and 42% forThose episodes with resistant (MIC ≥ 64 μg/ML) isolates. Expand

TLDR
The CLSI subcommittee has decided to recommend a “susceptible only” breakpoint MIC of ≤2 μg/ml due to the lack of echinocandin resistance in the population of Candida isolates thus far. Expand
