Detection of plasma beta -D-glucan in systemic candidiasis of rats


Detection of plasma beta -D-glucan in systemic candidiasis of rats



Journal of Clinical Dermatology 32(7): 373-375



ISSN/ISBN: 1000-4963

Objective: To evaluate the quantitative method of detecting plasma beta -D-glucan in systemic candidosis. Methods: G test was used to detect beta -D-glucan. Results: In the 40 Wistar rats with systemic candidosis diagnosed by fungus culture, the levels of plasma beta -D-glucan were parallel with the duration of infection, and the sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive rate were 80%, 100%, 100% and 55.6% respectively.
