Determining Susceptibility in Candida Vaginal Isolates.
Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2022 06 21; 66(6):e0236621.AA

Abstract

Antifungal drug susceptibility tests (AST) for Candida albicans are increasingly demanded for women with refractory or recurrent Candida vaginitis due to fluconazole resistance. Given reduced activity of azole drugs at pH levels found in women with Candida vaginitis, it is proposed that AST be performed at pH 4.5, since testing at only the recommended pH 7.0 is likely to miss a significant number of clinically relevant azole-resistant C. albicans vaginal isolates.
