Time to positivity and detection of growth in anaerobic blood culture vials predict the presence of Candida glabrata in candidemia: a two-center European cohort study.
 

Author(s): Nazaret Cobos-Trigueros, Achim J Kaasch, Alex Soriano, Jorge-Luis Torres, Andrea Vergara, Laura Morata, Yuliya Zboromyrska, Cristina De La Calle, Izaskun Alejo, Cristina Hernández, Celia Cardozo, Franscesc Marco, Ana Del Río, Manel Almela, Josep Mensa, José Antonio Martínez

Journal: J. Clin. Microbiol.. 2014 Aug;52(8):3082-4.

 

This study shows the accuracy of exclusive or earlier growth in anaerobic vials to predict Candida glabrata in a large series of candidemic patients from two European hospitals using the Bactec 9240 system. Alternatively, C. glabrata can be predicted by a time to positivity cutoff ...

Set of classical PCRs for detection of mutations in Candida glabrata FKS genes linked with echinocandin resistance.
 

Author(s): Catiana Dudiuk, Soledad Gamarra, Florencia Leonardeli, Cristina Jimenez-Ortigosa, Roxana G Vitale, Javier Afeltra, David S Perlin, Guillermo Garcia-Effron

Journal: J. Clin. Microbiol.. 2014 Jul;52(7):2609-14.

 

Clinical echinocandin resistance among Candida glabrata strains is increasing, especially in the United States. Antifungal susceptibility testing is considered mandatory to guide therapeutic decisions. However, these methodologies are not routinely performed in the hospital setting ...

Identification of Candida glabrata genes involved in pH modulation and modification of the phagosomal environment in macrophages.
 

Author(s): Lydia Kasper, Katja Seider, Franziska Gerwien, Stefanie Allert, Sascha Brunke, Tobias Schwarzmüller, Lauren Ames, Cristina Zubiria-Barrera, Michael K Mansour, Ulrike Becken, Dagmar Barz, Jatin M Vyas, Norbert Reiling, Albert Haas, Ken Haynes, Karl Kuchler, Bernhard Hube

Journal:

 

Candida glabrata currently ranks as the second most frequent cause of invasive candidiasis. Our previous work has shown that C. glabrata is adapted to intracellular survival in macrophages and replicates within non-acidified late endosomal-stage phagosomes. In contrast, heat killed ...

Two unlike cousins: Candida albicans and C. glabrata infection strategies.
 

Author(s): Sascha Brunke, Bernhard Hube

Journal: Cell. Microbiol.. 2013 May;15(5):701-8.

 

Candida albicans and C. glabrata are the two most common pathogenic yeasts of humans, yet they are phylogenetically, genetically and phenotypically very different. In this review, we compare and contrast the strategies of C. albicans and C. glabrata to attach to and invade into the ...

Stress response in Candida glabrata: pieces of a fragmented picture.
 

Author(s): Zeljkica Jandric, Christoph Schüller

Journal: Future Microbiol. 2011 Dec;6(12):1475-84.

 

Candida glabrata is closely related to yeast but obviously adapted to human commensalism. Communication with the environment is important to adjust allocation of resources between protection and proliferation in order to adapt to different situations in and outside of the host. Gene ...

Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis and Candida tropicalis: biology, epidemiology, pathogenicity and antifungal resistance.
 

Author(s): Sónia Silva, Melyssa Negri, Mariana Henriques, Rosário Oliveira, David W Williams, Joana Azeredo

Journal: FEMS Microbiol. Rev.. 2012 Mar;36(2):288-305.

 

The incidence of infections caused by Candida species (candidosis) has increased considerably over the past three decades, mainly due to the rise of the AIDS epidemic, an increasingly aged population, higher numbers of immunocompromised patients and the more widespread use of indwelling ...
