Effect of Usnic Acid on Candida orthopsilosis and C. parapsilosis
(Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
The activity of usnic acid against Candida orthopsilosis and Candida parapsilosis on planktonic and biofilm conditions was investigated by using a broth microdilution and microplate methods. Potent in vitro activities ...
Immune Response Against Sporothrix schenckii in TLR-4-Deficient Mice
(Mycopathologia, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
For many fungal diseases, macrophages are the major cell population implicated in host protection, primarily by their ability to eliminate the invading fungal pathogen through phagocytosis. In sporotrichosis, this remains ...
