Gomesin treatment of mice infected with C. albicans. Evaluation of the number of colony forming units (CFU) per gram of tissue of the kidneys (A), spleen (B), liver (C) and vagina (D). The disseminated candidiasis was performed by intravenous injection of 3 × 105 yeasts suspended in 100 μL of PBS and vaginal candidiasis was performed by inoculating 3 × 106 yeasts suspended in 20 μL of PBS. The treatment was done one, three and six days after infection with C. albicans (strain 78). Animals were treated with different doses of gomesin (GOM), fluconazole (FLUCO) and miconazole (MICO). As a control, infected animals received only PBS or cream (CREAM). * Indicates statistical significance (ANOVA with post-Tukey test, P < 0.05).
