Antifungal therapy: New advances in the understanding and treatment of mycosis
The high rates of morbidity and mortality caused by fungal infections are associated with the current limited antifungal arsenal and the high toxicity of the compounds. Additionally, identifying novel drug targets is ...
Antifungal and post-antifungal effects of chlorhexidine, fluconazole, chitosan and its combinations on Candida albicans.
(Medicina Oral, Patología Oral y Cirugía Bucal., 2017)
Antifungal applications of Ag-decorated hydroxyapatite nanoparticles
Pure hydroxyapatite (HA) and hydroxyapatite decorated with silver (HA@Ag) nanoparticles were synthesized and characterized. The antifungal effect of HA@Ag nanoparticles in a distilled water solution was evaluated against ...
In vitro antifungal activity of topical and systemic antifungal drugs against Malassezia species
The strict nutritional requirements of Malassezia species make it difficult to test the antifungal susceptibility. Treatments of the chronic and recurrent infections associated with Malassezia spp. are usually ineffective. ...
Control of spoilage fungi by lactic acid bacteria
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2013-03)
The evaluation of the potentiality of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains isolated from different origins to inhibit mould growth and to identify and characterize the antifungal metabolites were the aims of this study. ...
Synthesis, characterization and antifungal activity of quaternary derivatives of chitosan on Aspergillus flavus
Two series of new chitosan derivatives were synthesized by reaction of deacetylated chitosan (CH) with propyl (CH-Propyl) and pentyl (CH-Pentyl) trimethylammonium bromides to obtain derivatives with increasing degrees of ...
Antifungal activity of extracts and isolated compounds from Buchenavia tomentosa on Candida albicans and non-albicans
Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the antifungal activity of Buchenavia tomentosa extract and bioactive compounds on six Candida species. Materials & methods: The antimicrobial activity of extract was evaluated using ...
Hydrophobic effect of amphiphilic derivatives of chitosan on the antifungal activity against aspergillus flavus and aspergillus parasiticus
Low molecular weight amphiphilic derivatives of chitosan were synthesized, characterized and their antifungal activities against Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus were tested. The derivatives were synthesized ...
