Abstract

Minimal inhibitory and minimal fungicidal concentrations of caspofungin were determined for 48 Candida inconspicua isolates. By using CLSI (formerly NCCLS) methodology with the partial inhibition endpoint criterion, caspofungin exhibited a good fungicidal effect against C. inconspicua (the MIC90 was 0.25 μg/ml and the minimum fungicidal concentration [MFC] was 0.5 μg/ml after 24 h). Total inhibition yielded falsely elevated MICs, exceeding even the respective MFCs.
