    Invasive candidiasis is a dangerous infection that can harm the blood, the heart, the brain, the eyes, the bones, and other bodily organs. Candidemia, a Candida-related bloodstream infection, is a prevalent illness among hospitalized patients. It might be difficult to tell whether symptoms are attributable to a Candida infection in people who have invasive candidiasis since they are often unwell from other medical issues. Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis are the most prevalent Candida species that cause infection in humans. Occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in candidal pathogens led to difficult in treatment of such infections. Consequently, there remains a strong need for new antimicrobial agents. Therefore, the present study focuses on evaluating the anti-candidal activity of the Ceiba pentandra pod extracts against candidiasis causing C. albicans and C. tropicalis. Bioa.. Read More»
