Candida albicans is a commensal human body and also an opportunistic patogen that is able to form polymicrobial biofilms on biotic or abiotic surfaces, involved in nosocomial bloodstream infection.

The C. albicans biofilm community can be various, and the diversity of its composition influence the physiopathology of infaction as well as the efficacy of the treatments. 

Moreover it is interesting to notice that the inter-kingdom between C. albicans with others species like S. aureus and Streptococcus spp., increase the severity of infections, decreasing susceptibility toward antibiotics in animal models.

So a better understanding of these interactions will contribute to develop new effective ways to fight biofilm-related infections.
