MetadataShow full item record
Thirty Lactobacillus were isolated from the stool of 5-15 year-old children using MRS agar and identified by API 50CHL. Also. 50 Candida were isolated from blood cultures using SD agar and identified by Vitek 2 instrument with YST kit. Antifungal effects of Lactobacillus bacteria on Candida were explored using well diffusion method in SD agar. Lactobacillus had the most prominent antifungal effect against on C. albicans (M29, M36), C. parapsliosis (M25, M26), C. famata (M28) and C. guilliermondii (M38) yeasts. This study shows the presence of antifungal effect of Lactobacillus on Candida isolated from blood cultures.
