The aim of this work was to identify the predominant yeast species present at different anatomical sites in healthy dogs and to determine their in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility using a broth microdilution assay. Samples were collected from the preputial, vaginal, oral and perianal mucosae and the isolates cultured were identified according to their morphological characteristics and biochemical profile. Malassezia pachydermatis was the most commonly isolated yeast, followed by Candida… Expand
Antifungal sensitivity and species of yeasts in oral mucosa of street mixed-breed dogs.
TLDR
This research is the first investigation on street mixed-breed dogs regarding yeast identifications and antifungals profiles and found resistance of some yeasts to amphotericin B and a good susceptibility to voriconazole and ketoconazole. Expand
Candida species isolated from the gastrointestinal tract of cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus): In vitro antifungal susceptibility profile and phospholipase activity.
TLDR
The results show that cockatiels might represent a hazard to human health, as sources of infections caused by resistant Candida spp. Expand
Antifungal susceptibility and virulence attributes of animal-derived isolates of Candida parapsilosis complex.
TLDR
The study showed that C. parapsilosis sensu stricto and C. orthopsilosis are the most common species of the Candida parapsillosis species complex and that these cryptic species present no significant phenotypical differences. Expand
Trends in antifungal susceptibility and virulence of Candida spp. from the nasolacrimal duct of horses.
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of investigating the antifungal susceptibility and virulence trends of Candida spp. Expand
Azole-resistant Candida albicans from a wild Brazilian porcupine (Coendou prehensilis): a sign of an environmental imbalance?
TLDR
The molecular analyses showed a genetic similarity among the three tested isolates, suggesting the occurrence of candidemia in the studied animal, and highlight the importance of monitoring antifungal susceptibility of Candida spp. Expand
Candida tropicalis isolates obtained from veterinary sources show resistance to azoles and produce virulence factors.
TLDR
C. tropicalis isolated from animals showed high rate of resistance to azoles, expressed virulence factors and therefore may represent a potential threat to human and animal health. Expand
Antifungal Resistance and Virulence Among Candida spp. from Captive Amazonian manatees and West Indian Manatees: Potential Impacts on Animal and Environmental Health
TLDR
Since the natural cavities of manatees are colonized by resistant and virulent strains of Candida spp. Expand
Yeasts from Macrobrachium amazonicum: a focus on antifungal susceptibility and virulence factors of Candida spp.
TLDR
The most relevant finding was the high percentage of resistant Candida spp. Expand
Azole resistance in Candida from animals calls for the One Health approach to tackle the emergence of antimicrobial resistance.
TLDR
Efflux-mediated mechanisms are involved in azole resistance among Candida spp. Expand
Susceptibility of Malassezia pachydermatis Clinical Isolates to Allopathic Antifungals and Brazilian Red, Green, and Brown Propolis Extracts
TLDR
Results indicate that propolis can potentially be used in in vivo experiments as a promising therapeutic agent against M. pachydermatis infections, and that isolates with lower susceptibility to commercial fungicides were inhibited by red and green propolis extracts. Expand

Phenotypic characterization and in vitro antifungal sensitivity of Candida spp. and Malassezia pachydermatis strains from dogs.
TLDR
The phenotyping was based on macro and micromorphological features as well as biochemical analysis and there were no alterations in the classic phenotypic features of the strains of Candida spp. Expand
Rapid Identification of Candida Tropicalis from Canine Cystitis
TLDR
The isolate from urine of a dog with cystitis was molecularly identified Candida tropicalis and its minimum inhibitory concentration was determined by a microdilution method and assisted the diagnosis of candidiasis by identifying the yeasts in urine samples within 2 days. Expand
In Vitro Susceptibilities of Candida spp. to Caspofungin: Four Years of Global Surveillance
TLDR
The in vitro activity of caspofungin against 8,197 invasive patient isolates of Candida collected from 91 medical centers worldwide from 1 January 2001 to 31 December 2004 was determined and prospective sentinel surveillance reveals no evidence of emerging casp ofungin resistance among invasive clinical isolatesof Candida.

TLDR
Antifungal susceptibility was tested according to the broth microdilution method described in the NCCLS (M27A-2 method), and dose-dependent susceptibility to fluconazole was found in 1.6% of strains, probably related to low use of flu Conazole. Expand

TLDR
The possible involvement of saprobe fungi in dermatomycoses, as well as the determination of the incidence of dermatophytes in dogs and dogs, with cutaneous lesions suggesting mycoses were studied. Expand
Detection and identification of the Candida species by 25S ribosomal DNA analysis in the urine of candidal cystitis.
TLDR
Candida species in clinical urine samples were identified directly by the newly developed method of PCR analysis on 25S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) by identifying Candida albicans and C. parapsilosis by mycological examination of two dogs referred for the examination of chronic cystitis. Expand
Isolation of Malassezia species from healthy cats and cats with otitis
TLDR
The present work confirms the presence of some lipid-dependent species of Malassezia in both healthy and otitic cats, and isolated three different species simultaneously in three cats. Expand

TLDR
Yeast of the genus Candida is the main causal factor in onychomycosis in the authors' region and the study showed the importance of performing direct examination and culture in diagnosis. Expand

TLDR
The identification and serotyping of C. albicans isolated from the bovine feces of suckling calves revealed that all samples belong to serotype A, which is probably associated in cattle to milk diet. Expand
Effects of Caspofungin against Candida guilliermondii and Candida parapsilosis
TLDR
It is shown that caspofungin was active in experimental systemic candidiasis due to C. guilliermondii and C. parapsilosis, but this activity required relatively high drug dosages. Expand
