In vitro Susceptibility Testing of “Rare Moulds”


Few studies indicate that rare moulds are less susceptible or even resistant to general antifungal agents, hence the management of such infections is a major clinical challenge. The project “In vitro Susceptibility Testing of Rare Moulds, RaMo” will test a wide range of rare moulds against a broad pannel of antifungals using Etest and CLSI/EUCAST broth microdilution methods.  Your contribution is very wellcome!
Participation in this study could consist of (i) providing rare mould strains to us so that we perform AFST (antifungal susceptibility testing) OR (ii) providing already evaluated MICs of rare moulds, preferably with data from Etest and CLSI/EUCAST broth microdilution. Because of the heterogeneity of the term rare moulds, it is emphasized that the interest is not in any species of Aspergillus, Mucorales, Fusarium und Scedosporium.
