Candida species were identified preliminary according to the colors produced by the colonies on CHROMagar Candida ; green isolates: Candida albicans, Candida dubliniensis, Candida africana; blue isolates: Candida tropicalis
; dry pink: Candida krusei; creamy pink-lilac isolates: suspect of Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis, Candida guilliermondii; White isolates: other Candida spp.
With regard to the strains of Candida tropicalis
isolated from hand surfaces of mobile phone owners, we found statistically significant correlations only between increased resistance to miconazole and higher activity of esterase (p=0.014) and leucine arylamidase (p=0.008).
Candida albicans 128(58.45%) was the most predominant species followed by Candida glabrata 30(13.69%), Candida tropicalis
26(11.87%), Candida krusei 17(7.76%), Candida parapsilosis 12(5.47%), Candida dubliniensis 3(1.37%) and Candida lusitaniae 3(1.37).
The development of blue colonies after 48 h of incubation at 37[degrees]C in Chromagar[R] Medium and the distribution of blastospores along pseudomycelium observed in the microcultures (Figure 1) determined that all isolates belong to Candida tropicalis
. None of the isolates was able either to produce hydrogen peroxide neither to inhibit the development of fish pathogens or foodborne microorganisms by the production of other antagonistic compounds.
Nevertheless, in case of antifungal activity significant zone of inhibition was observed for compound 22 against Aspergillus niger, while moderate activity experience against Aspergillus flavus, Candida albicans, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida tropicalis
(2) Recent studies have reported increased incidences of other Candida species, especially Candida parapsilosis besides Candida tropicalis
and Candida glabrata.3 Candida parapsilosis is a major concern since its association with central venous access device (CVAD)-related infections has been well demonstrated.
This study was conducted to evaluate the antifungal effect of colloidal AgNPs gainst pathogenic Candida species such as Candida albicans, Candida glabrata and Candida tropicalis
using disc diffusion method.
Among yeasts of this genus, Candida tropicalis
is among the most isolated ones in patients diagnosed with urinary infection .
