Neomycin sulfate: A new antifungal and antiadherent agent against Candida albicans cells on heat–cured acrylic resin denture base material. An in vitro study


Neomycin sulfate is an antibacterial agent. In this research, the antifungal and antiadherent effect of neomycin sulfate on Candida albicans that colonize the heatcured acrylic resin denture base material was evaluated. The results showed a significant effect compared with the control group. This effect is similar to the effect of the known antifungal agents (fluconazol and chlorhexidine) and lesser than (nystatin).
