Molecular typing and antifungal susceptibility of clinical sequential isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans from São Paulo State, Brazil
(FEMS Yeast Research, 2007-01-01) [Artigo]
The antifungal susceptibility profiles and the genetic variability of 83 sequential clinical isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans, including four Cryptococcus gattii isolates, obtained from 38 São Paulo AIDS patients with ...
Paracoccidoides brasiliensis 30 kDa Adhesin: Identification as a 14-3-3 Protein, Cloning and Subcellular Localization in Infection Models
(PLOS ONE, 2013-04-30) [Artigo]
Paracoccidoides brasiliensis adhesion to lung epithelial cells is considered an essential event for the establishment of infection and different proteins participate in this process. One of these proteins is a 30 kDa ...
EEA1 decrease in Paracoccidioides brasiliensis infected macrophages
(Mycoses, 2012-06-01) [Resumo]
Anticandidal Efficacy of Cinnamon Oil Against Planktonic and Biofilm Cultures of Candida parapsilosis and Candida orthopsilosis
(Mycopathologia, 2011-12-01) [Artigo]
Candida parapsilosis is yeast capable of forming biofilms on medical devices. Novel approaches for the prevention and eradication of the biofilms are desired. This study investigated the anticandidal activity of sixteen ...
Anti dermatophytic therapy: prospects for the discovery of new drugs from natural products
(Brazilian Journal of Microbiology, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
Millions of people and animals suffer from superficial infections caused by a group of highly specialized filamentous fungi, the dermatophytes, which only infect keratinized structures. With the appearance of AIDS, the ...
Effectiveness of disinfectants used in hemodialysis against both Candida orthopsilosis and C. parapsilosis sensu stricto biofilms
(Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2013-05-01) [Artigo]
Biofilms have been observed in the fluid pathways of hemodialysis machines. The impacts of four biocides used for the disinfection of hemodialysis systems were tested against Candida parapsilosis sensu stricto and Candida ...
New antimicrobial therapies used against fungi present in subgingival sites-A brief review
(Archives of Oral Biology, 2011-10-01) [Artigo]
Although the main reservoir of Candida spp. is believed to be the buccal mucosa, these microorganisms can coaggregate with bacteria in subgingival biofilm and adhere to epithelial cells. The treatment of periodontal disease ...
Enolase from Paracoccidioides brasiliensis: isolation and identification as a fibronectin-binding protein
(Journal of Medical Microbiology, 2009-06-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis yeast cells can enter mammalian cells and may manipulate the host cell environment to favour their own growth and survival. Moreover, fibronectin and several other host extracellular matrix ...
Serological Diagnosis of Paracoccidioidomycosis: High Rate of Inter-laboratorial Variability among Medical Mycology Reference Centers
(Plos Neglected Tropical Diseases, 2014-09-01) [Artigo]
Background: Serological tests have long been established as rapid, simple and inexpensive tools for the diagnosis and follow-up of PCM. However, different protocols and antigen preparations are used and the few attempts ...
Strain differentiation of Trichophyton rubrum by randomly amplified polymorphic DNA and analysis of rDNA nontranscribed spacer
(Journal of Medical Microbiology, 2006-04-01) [Artigo]
Trichophyton rubrum is the most common pathogen causing dermatophytosis. Molecular strain-typing methods have recently been developed to tackle epidemiological questions and the problem of relapse following treatment. A ...
