Recovery of <i>Candida albicans</i> from infected <i>Galleria mellonella</i> larvae.

<p>The number of <i>C. albicans</i> CFUs recovered from <i>G. mellonella</i> larval fat body and hemolymph 24 h post-drug treatment and infection. CFUs recovered from the fat body of the CA group were significantly higher than all the other groups (*p<0.01, n = 10). In contrast, CFUs recovered from the hemolymph of MYR+CA group were significantly higher (**p<0.001, n = 10) than all the other groups. In addition, only in the MYR+CA group were the CFUs recovered from hemolymph significantly higher than from the fat body (**p<0.001, n = 10). The drug treatments and abbreviations are as in <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0078905#pone-0078905-g001" target="_blank">Figure 1</a>. Error bars indicate standard errors. Each experiment was triplicated.</p>
