Emodin Reduces the Activity of (1,3)-β-D-glucan Synthase from Candida albicans and Does Not Interact with Caspofungin

Abstract Candidiasis is the most common opportunistic yeast infection, with Candida albicans as a paramount causative species. (1,3)-β-D-glucan is one of the three main targets of clinically available antifungal agents used to treat Candida infections. It is one of the most abundant fungal cell wall components. Echinocandins represent the newest class of antifungals affecting cell wall biosynthesis through non-competitive inhibition of (1,3)-β-D-glucan synthase. Therefore, treatment with

Etiologic Agents and Antifungal Susceptibility of Oral Candidosis from Romanian patients with HIV-infection or type 1 diabetes mellitus

This is the first Romanian investigation of oral candidosis in patients suffering of HIV-infection or type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM).Candida albicans was the dominant species in both types of isolates: n = 14 (46.7%) in T1DM, n = 60 (69.8%) in HIV. The most frequent non-albicans Candida spp. were Candida kefyr (n = 6; 20%) in T1DM and Candida dubliniensis (n = 8; 9.3%) in HIV. Resistance to fluconazole was detected only in the HIV non-albicans Candida group (n = 8; 9.3%). All isolates were

Chemical Composition of Aspergillus creber Extract and Evaluation of its Antimicrobial and Antioxidant Activities

-Italy, were used to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of EAF. Four Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Salmonella Typhi) and two Gram-positive drug-resistant bacteria (DRB, Staphylococcus aureus producing beta-lactamase (SABL) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis (MRSE)) were used for the antibacterial tests. Two pathogenic yeasts (Candida albicans and Candida glabrata) were used for anticandidal tests. Pathogenic

New Look on Antifungal Activity of Silver Nanoparticles (AgNPs)

concerning growth inhibition of other bacteria (Enterococcus spp.) and yeast (Candida albicans) by nanosilver is also available (Kim et al. 2007; Roe et al. 2008; Lara et al. 2015). However, the studies of AgNPs interaction with cell structures of bacteria and yeasts are scarce. Only in few reports the location of AgNPs inside C. albicans cells was demonstrated under transmission electron microscopy (TEM) or scanning electron microscopy (SEM) (Kim et al. 2009; Radhakrishnan et al. 2018). In opposite to

Antimicrobial Effects of Platelet-rich Plasma against Selected Oral and Periodontal Pathogens

Antimicrobial properties of platelet rich plasma (PRP) against various microorganisms have been recently pointed out. PRP could be an alternative to conventional antibiotics in preventing oral and periodontal infections. We examined whether PRP has in vitro antimicrobial properties against Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Prophyromonas gingivalis, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. PRP and platelet-poor plasma (PPP) were obtained from whole blood of 10 healthy volunteers and 10
