We compared two latex agglutination tests for serum candidal antigen in murine models of systemic infection and gastrointestinal colonization. In the intravascular-infection model, mannan detection test was positive at 2 hours after inoculation, but Cand-Tec was less sensitive than mannan detection test in this model. In the gastrointestinal colonization model followed by systemic infection in neutropenic mice, the mannan antigen test became positive after 3 weeks of colonization with increased number of Candida of the stool, and Cand-Tec became positive after 5 weeks in neutropenic mice.
