Recovery of Candida albicans from infected Galleria mellonella larvae.

The number of C. albicans CFUs recovered from G. mellonella 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 Figure 1. Error bars indicate standard errors. Each experiment was triplicated.
