Differential activities of newer antifungal agents against Candida albicans and Candida parapsilosis biofilms


, : Differential activities of newer antifungal agents against Candida albicans and Candida parapsilosis biofilms. Antimicrobial Agents and ChemoTherapy 52(1): 357-360

The activities of voriconazole, posaconazole, caspofungin, and anidulafungin against Candida albicans and Candida parapsilosis biofilms were evaluated. In contrast to planktonic cells, the MICs for voriconazole and posaconazole for the biofilms of the two species were high (>or=256 and >64 mg/liter, respectively) but relatively low for the echinocandins caspofungin and anidulafungin (<or=1 and <or=2 mg/liter, respectively).

Recent research has shown that PDZ-containing proteins have a key role in assembling receptors and associated signaling enzymes at synapses and other sites of cell-cell contact. PDZ proteins directly bind the C termini of NR2 subunit receptors, th...
