Table 2 Quantification of adhesive and invasive C. albicans in nystatin-treated and untreated groups

From: Nystatin enhances the immune response against Candida albicans and protects the ultrastructure of the vaginal epithelium in a rat model of vulvovaginal candidiasis

  Untreated Treated t P
Adhesive yeasts 2.50 ± 1.049 0.00 ± 0.000 5.839 0.002
Adhesive hyphae 9.50 ± 1.049 1.50 ± 0.548 16.562 < 0.001
Invasive yeasts 12.33 ± 1.966 2.50 ± 1.049 10.808 < 0.001
Invasive hyphae 1.33 ± 0.516 0.00 ± 0.000 6.325 0.001
  1. The number of adhesive and invasive C. albicans in the nystatin-treated group and untreated 15 d sub-group was evaluated by counting 10 consecutive fields under transmission electron microscopy (magnification ×1200). Data represent the mean ± standard deviation (n = 6)
