Normal Human Gingival Epithelial Cells Sense C. parapsilosis by Toll-Like Receptors and Module Its Pathogenesis through Antimicrobial Peptides and Proinflammatory Cytokines
Sensitivity of C. parapsilosis to amphotericin-B. The yeast was cultured in the presence of various concentrations of amphotericin-B for 24 hours and its growth was assessed by MTT assay. Quantification of live C. parapsilosis was obtained using a standard live curve. The effect of the antifungal agent on C. parapsilosis was compared to that on C. albicans. Results are presented as means ± SD of six different experiments.
