Abstract

Crl:CD1(ICR) BR adult mice were fed chow containing Candida albicans or regular chow. Both groups were subsequently given either antibiotics acting mainly against Gram-positive organisms or normal saline for 10 days. Stool cultures were performed before, at the end, and one week after discontinuation of treatment to determine the effects on the stool yeast concentration. Candida colonized mice treated with vancomycin, teicoplanin, linezolid, quinupristin-dalfopristin or telithromycin had higher colony counts of yeast in their stools than control Candida fed mice treated with saline. This increase was not statistically significant. Mice fed regular chow treated with the study drugs or saline did not have any yeasts in their stools. Dissemination of Candida was not observed in the visceral organs of any mouse.
