Antifungal activity was carried out against Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida krusei
and Candida tropicalis.
These Candida species; Candida tropicalis, Candida parapsilosis, Candida glabrata, and Candida krusei
are of increasing significance as they tend to be more resistant to antifungal agents (2-4).
Both Candida krusei
and Candida glabrata are of clinical importance.
We chose voriconazole because the needle was medical waste and because of the concern for a possible resistant yeast, like Candida glabrata or Candida krusei
Purified genomic DNA (1 ng) from Neisseria meningitides (ATCC-13077), Listeria monocytogenes (CCRI-4862), and Candida krusei
(ATCC28870) were PCR-amplified with a PTC-200 thermocycler (Bio-Rad Laboratories; 1 min at 94 [degrees]C, then 40 cycles of 1 s at 95 [degrees]C for the denaturation step, 10 s at 60 [degrees]C for the annealing step, and 20 s at 72 [degrees]C for the extension step) in a PCR reaction mixture containing 50 mmol/L Tris-HCl at pH 9.
Quality control was ensured by testing the CLSI recommended quality control strains Candida parapsilopsis ATCC 22019 (MIC range 2-8 [micro]g/ ml) and Candida krusei
ATCC 6258 (MIC range 16-64 [micro]g/ml).
Abstract: An 81-year-old female received voriconazole in a 7-day treatment course for a symptomatic Candida krusei
urinary tract infection.
Treatment of murine Candida krusei
or Candida glabrata infection with L-743,872.
According to the manufacturer, the cross-reactivity of Candigen with other closely related Candida species ranges from less than 10% for Candida krusei
to 75% for C tropicalis.
