albicans is due to prolonged use of antifungals, which select for resistant strains, and due to the numerous virulence genotypes that promote adhesion to epithelial cells, production of hydrolytic enzymes, colonization, and invasion [9].
Purpose: The present study investigated the antifungal effect of 2',4,-dihydroxy-5'-(1'",1'"-dimethylallyl)- 8-prenylpinocembrin (8PP, formerly 6PP), a natural prenylflavonoid, on Candida albicans biofilms, and compared this with an azole antifungal (fluconazole) by studying the cellular stress and antioxidant response.
Entre los pacientes de la unidad de cuidados intensivos (UCI), las especies de candida son la tercera causa mas comun de infeccion sanguinea nosocomial, y la mortalidad atribuible a candidemia es cerca del 40%, siendo Candida albicans el patogeno humano mas comun (2).
Entre las levaduras, Candida albicans era la especie predominante, sin embargo, se estan documentando cada vez mas infecciones causadas por otras especies, que presentan mayor resistencia al tratamiento con los azoles (3-5).
All clinical samples were collected for subsequent laboratory analyses, including the GM antigen test, and Aspergillus fumigatus and Candida albicans PCR tests, from 194 neutropenic episodes for blood culture, 61 episodes for urine culture, 34 episodes for sputum culture, 12 episodes for catheter culture, two episodes for tracheal aspirate (TRA), and one episode for bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), throat swab, wound swab, brain biopsy material, and pleural material cultures.
albicans is a fungus present in the majority of people as part of the normal microbial flora.
The lactic acid bacterium Streptococcus mutans and the yeast Candida albicans belong to the most common microorganisms found in the oral cavity.
Intraoperative cytologic examination of a biopsy sample of the lesion demonstrated yeast organisms, and a subsequent culture of the biopsy sample revealed Candida albicans.
Objective: The fungus Candida albicans is a common cause of human infection with serious morbidity, but the organism is also a commensal yeast that is part of the normal gut microbiota.
albicans was inhibited at concentrations of 100 300 and 500 g/ml.
