(BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2014) [Artigo]
The search for alternative therapies for oral candidiasis is a necessity and the use of medicinal plants seems to be one of the promising solutions. The objective of this study was to evaluate the in vitro and in vivo ...
Lactobacillus species increase the survival of Galleria mellonella infected with Candida albicans and non-albicans Candida clinical isolates
(Medical Mycology, 2019-04-01) [Artigo]
Investigation into new therapeutic strategies, such as the use of bacterial isolates with probiotic characteristics, has increased in importance due to the high incidence of Candida albicans and non-albicans Candida ...
Competitive interactions between C. albicans, C. glabrata and C. krusei during biofilm formation and development of experimental Candidiasis
(Plos One, 2015) [Artigo]
In this study, we evaluated the interactions between Candida albicans, Candida krusei and Candida glabrata in mixed infections. Initially, these interactions were studied in biofilms formed in vitro. CFU/mL values of C. ...
Methods for obtaining reliable and reproducible results in studies of Candida biofilms formed in vitro
(Mycoses, 2013-05-31) [Artigo]
Biofilm formation is one of the most important attributes for virulence in Candida species and contributes to increased resistance to antifungal drugs and host immune mechanisms. These features have led to the development ...
Photodynamic inactivation of biofilms formed by Candida spp., Trichosporon mucoides, and Kodamaea ohmeri by cationic nanoemulsion of zinc 2,9,16,23-tetrakis(phenylthio)-29H, 31H-phthalocyanine (ZnPc)
(Lasers in Medical Science, 2012-11-01) [Artigo]
The biofilms formed by opportunistic yeasts serve as a persistent reservoir of infection and impair the treatment of fungal diseases. The aim of this study was to evaluate photodynamic inactivation (PDI) of biofilms formed ...
Proteinase, hemolysin and esterase production of Candida albicans strains isolated from individuals with denture stomatitis
(Mycoses, 2011-10-01) [Resumo]
Oral colonization by yeasts in hiv-positive patients in Brazil
(Revista do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de São Paulo, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
Introduction: In HIV-infected patients, colonization of the oral cavity by potential pathogenic yeast may lead to development of systemic fungemia. We evaluated the prevalence of yeast in the oral cavity of Brazilian ...
The effects of rose bengal- and erythrosine-mediated photodynamic therapy on Candida albicans
(Mycoses, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of photodynamic therapy (PDT) using rose bengal or erythrosine with light emitting diode (LED) on Candida albicans planktonic cultures and biofilms. Seven C. albicans ...
Enzymatic Activity, Sensitivity to Antifungal Drugs and Baccharis dracunculifolia Essential Oil by Candida Strains Isolated from the Oral Cavities of Breastfeeding Infants and in Their Mothers' Mouths and Nipples
(Mycopathologia, 2011-02-01) [Artigo]
Candida strains can cause oral candidosis, as well as nipples candidosis and lead to premature weaning or yeast transmission. The aim of this study was to evaluate 51 Candida isolates obtained from the oral cavities of ...
Photodynamic therapy mediated by chlorin-type photosensitizers against Streptococcus mutans biofilms
(Photodiagnosis and Photodynamic Therapy, 2018-12-01) [Artigo]
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can be used for the control of oral pathogens and different photosensitizers (PS) have been investigated. This study evaluated the efficacy of PDT against Streptococcus mutans biofilms using two ...
