Phase-Dependent Differential In Vitro and Ex Vivo Susceptibility of Aspergillus flavus and Fusarium keratoplasticum to Azole Antifungals

Journal of Fungi, 9(10), 966.

By: D. Roberts n, J. Salmon n, M. Cubeta n & B. Gilger n

author keywords: Aspergillus; Fusarium; fungal keratitis; antifungal susceptibility; MIC; azole

By: M. Cubeta n, B. Cody n & P. Williams*

TL;DR: Three experiments were conducted and the isolate of P. brassicae from eastern North Carolina was most virulent on cabbage, which was designated as race 6 and pathotype 5 according to Williams (2) and Some (1), respectively, however, further experiments with single-cyst-derived isolates from individual clubs obtained from different geographic locations are needed to accurately characterize field populations.
