[in vitro sensitivity to 5-fluorocytosine and amphotericin b of yeasts of the candida genus isolated in barcelona].in 200 strains of candida sp, 38.5% were found to have intermediate sensitivity or to be resistant to amphotericin b and/or 5-fluorocytosine by the agar diffusion method. when the minimal inhibitory concentrations of these strains were measured, only 7.8% were resistant to amphotericin b and 2.8% to 5-fluorocytosine. the species with the highest levels of resistance were c. parapsilosis, c. tropicalis and torulopsis glabrata. candida albicans did not show resistance to 5-fluorocytosine.19902098147
airborne fungi in the air of barcelona, spain. v. the yeasts.during a two-year survey of the fungal flora present in the air of barcelona, spain, the following species of yeasts were isolated: sporobolomyces roseus kluyver et van niel, candida albicans (robin) berkhout, rhodotorula glutinis (fres.). harrison var. glutinis and rhodotorula minuta (saito) harrison. diurnal and seasonal incidences are presented.19806996535
in vitro susceptibilities of bloodstream isolates of candida species to six antifungal agents: results from a population-based active surveillance programme, barcelona, spain, 2002-2003.the antifungal drug susceptibilities of 351 isolates of candida species, obtained through active laboratory-based surveillance in the period january 2002-december 2003, were determined (candida albicans 51%, candida parapsilosis 23%, candida tropicalis 10%, candida glabrata 9%, candida krusei 4%).200415618284
epidemiology and predictors of mortality in cases of candida bloodstream infection: results from population-based surveillance, barcelona, spain, from 2002 to 2003.we conducted population-based surveillance for candida bloodstream infections in spain to determine its incidence, the extent of antifungal resistance, and risk factors for mortality. a case was defined as the first positive blood culture for any candida spp. in a resident of barcelona, from 1 january 2002 to 31 december 2003. we defined early mortality as occurring between days 3 to 7 after candidemia and late mortality as occurring between days 8 to 30. we detected 345 cases of candidemia, for ...200515815004
epidemiology, risk factors, and prognosis of candida parapsilosis bloodstream infections: case-control population-based surveillance study of patients in barcelona, spain, from 2002 to 2003.candida parapsilosis has emerged as an important yeast species causing fungemia. we describe the incidence and epidemiology of c. parapsilosis fungemia. data from active population-based surveillance in barcelona, spain, from january 2002 to december 2003 were analyzed. we focused on 78 episodes of c. parapsilosis fungemia, and we compared them with 175 candida albicans controls. c. parapsilosis accounted for 23% of all fungemias. the annual incidences were 1 episode per 10(5) patients, 1.2 epis ...200616672393
predictors of candidaemia caused by non-albicans candida species: results of a population-based surveillance in barcelona, spain.although candida albicans (ca) is the most common cause of candida bloodstream infections (bsis), recent studies have observed an increasing percentage of candidaemias caused by non-albicans candida species (nac). in the present study, we attempted to identify the predictors of candidaemia due to nac compared to ca. we analyzed data from an active population-based surveillance in barcelona (spain) from january 2002 to december 2003. factors associated with nac fungaemia were determined by multiv ...201020219079
[changes in the epidemiology of fungaemia and fluconazole susceptibility of blood isolates during the last 10 years in spain: results from the fungemyca study].recent epidemiological surveillance studies have reported an increase in fungaemia caused by non-candida albicans species, as well as a decrease in fluconazole susceptibility.201121376831
