Microplate alamarblue assay for paracoccidioides susceptibility testing
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2013-04-01) [Artigo]
CLSI method M27-A3 is not available for use with dimorphic fungi, such as those of the Paracoccidioides genus. In this study, we developed a microdilution method and added the alamarBlue reagent to test the responses of ...
Role of TLR-2 and fungal surface antigens on innate immune response against Sporothrix schenckii
(Immunological Investigations, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Sporotrichosis is an infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckii. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play an important role in immunity, since they bind to pathogen surface antigens and initiate the immune response. ...
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 ...
Staphylococcus epidermidis biofilms control by N-acetylcysteine and rifampicin
(American Journal of Therapeutics, 2013-07-01) [Artigo]
Medical device-associated infections caused by Staphylococcus epidermidis usually involve biofilm formation and its eradication is particularly challenging. Although rifampicin has been proving to be one of the most effective ...
Phototoxic effect of curcumin on methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and L929 fibroblasts
(Lasers in Medical Science, 2013-02-01) [Artigo]
Photodynamic therapy has been investigated as an alternative method of killing pathogens in response to the multiantibiotic resistance problem. This study evaluated the photodynamic effect of curcumin on methicillin-resistant ...
