Abstract: Candida infections are becoming increasingly prevalent and many clinical isolates are resistant to common azole derivatives treatment. Accordingly, the capacity of a series of 19 alkyl glycosides, mainly mannosides and glucosides but also a cellobioside with aglycone chain-length from C-6 to C-20, to inhibit the growth of laboratory and clinically isolated strains of Candida albicans, was investigated. The study showed that only glycosides with the C-10 and C-12 aglycones were effective growth inhibitors of both types of Candida strains, whose metabolic activity was also significantly reduced as revealed by an XTT assay.

Keywords: susceptibility – synthetic glycosides – Candida albican
