C. albicans is a commensal yeast which asymptomatically colonizes mucosal surfaces; however, any disruption in the host environment or under conditions of immune dysfunction, C. albicans can proliferate and invade virtually any site in the host. S. cerevisiae is found in nature associated with man and, more rarely, found on the skins of grapes. S.bayanus can be found in locations remote from humans, which is not in common with S. cerevisiae . H. anomala ecological traits include: fermentation contaminant, soil, grain, ensilage, water, plants (especially fruits and fermenting matter), sewage, warm blooded animals. The scope of this study was to see if S. cerevisiae, S.bayanus, and H. anomala have any killer effect on C. albicans strains. We have realized it at Phytotoxin Laboratory, Department of Plant Protection, Durrës, Albania. We have analyzed 20 positive samples of C. albicans, isolated in the Microbiological Laboratory of Durrës, Albania. It has resulted that Hansenula anomala has the greatest killer effect of these three yeasts on Candida albicans strains, while the effect of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces bayanus is almost rough, with minor differences between C. albicans strains.

Candida albicans, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Saccharomyces bayanus, Hansenula anomala, killer effect.
