Antifungal susceptibility testing was performed on 197 yeast isolates from the BCCM/IHEM biomedical fungi and yeasts collection (Belgian Co-ordinated Collections of Micro-organisms / IPH-Mycology) to study the in vitro activity of voriconazole against fluconazole, itraconazole and amphotericin B. MICs of the four antifungal agents were determined by an adapted NCCLS M27-A microdilution reference method. MIC readings were visually and spectrophotometrically determined. Optical density data were used for calculation of the MIC endpoints. For amphotericin B, the MIC endpoint was defined as the…
