Sensitivity of Candida albicans biofilm cells grown on denture acrylic to antifungal proteins and chlorhexidine
Candida albicans cells in a biofilm are resistant to many antifungal agents, however their sensitivity to natural antifungal peptides is unknown. Salivary histatins (Hsts) and defensins (hBDs) are naturally-occurring ...
