The objective of this study was to compare the antifungal susceptibility profiles of 307 environmental strains and 139 clinical isolates of Aspergillus belonging to six different species. Clinical and environmental strains with minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) or minimal effective concentrations >or=4microg/mL to amphotericin B (AMB), itraconazole (ITC), voriconazole and caspofungin were seldom detected. However, the susceptibility profile of environmental Aspergillus non-fumigatus… CONTINUE READING
