Comparison of glucan detection and galactomannan enzyme immunoassay in gastrointestinal and systemic murine candidiasis.

Mouse models of systemic and gastrointestinal infection with the yeast Candida albicans were used to investigate the ability of a commercial mannan antigen enzyme immunoassay and a commercial (1-->3) beta-D-glucan limulus assay to detect systemic infection and to differentiate between colonization and infection. Both assays were positive in all i.v. infected mice and negative in all uninfected control mice. In gastrointestinal infection both tests were positive whenever organ cultures were positive. In colonized mice with no detectable dissemination, there were mostly negative results with the glucan assay whereas the mannan assay was positive or intermediate in all colonized mice. Therefore, in the mouse model used, glucan detection appeared to be superior for differentiation between colonization and dissemination.[1]
