As little is known about the yeast/host interaction in Candida species other than C. albicans, this unit details the materials and experimental procedures required for development of experimental C.albicans infections, such as GI and disseminated infections in infant Swiss White mice and in adult immunocompromised BALB/c mice, primary acute disseminated infection in BALB/c and DBA/2 mice, and vaginal infection in CBA/J mice and in Wistar rats. Detailed materials and methods for C. albicans growth and detection are also described.
