Antimicrobial activity of biosynthesised silver nanoparticles against multidrug-resistant microbes isolated from cancer patients with bacteraemia and candidaemia

CONCLUSION: The present study revealed a significant distribution of multidrug-resistant microbes, which may increase the burden of healthcare to prevent infections in cancer patients. Biosilver nanoparticles exhibit antimicrobial activity against multidrug-resistant microbes and could be considered as effective agents against these strains.

Synergistic Antifungal Activity of Chitosan with Fluconazole against <em>Candida albicans</em>, <em>Candida tropicalis</em>, and Fluconazole-Resistant Strains

(1) Background: Few antifungal drugs are currently available, and drug-resistant strains have rapidly emerged. Thus, the aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the antifungal activity from a combinational treatment of chitosan with a clinical antifungal drug on Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis. (2) Methods: Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) tests, checkerboard assays, and disc assays were employed to determine the inhibitory effect of chitosan with or without other…
