Abstract

Candida auris provides a substantial global nosocomial threat clinically. With the recent emergence that the organism can readily colonize skin niches, it will likely continue to pose a risk in healthcare units, particularly to patients undergoing surgery. The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of antifungal loaded calcium sulfate beads in combatting C. auris infection. We demonstrate that the CS-packed beads have the potential to interfere with planktonic and sessile C. auris.
