Candida species commonly colonize the oral cavity and intestinal canal of man and various animals 1. There are data which suggest that the endogenous bacterial flora may suppress the colonization of Candida2,3,4. Experiments performed by different investigators indicate that both in vivo and in vitro some E. coli, Salmonella and Streptococcus strains inhibit C. albicans5,6,7. At least one report (Jeffries and Schileru, Ann. Meett. Am. Soc. Microhiol. 1975, Abstract D52, p.60) suggest that the production of bacteriocins may be responsible for this inhibition.It has been also reported that in vitro inhibiton may be due to pH change and nutrient depletion of media 8.
