Scholarcy highlights

  • The fungistatic activity of hyaluronic acid was determined by measuring the optical densities of the cultures
  • The candidacidal activity of HA and the influences of HA on the candidacidal activities of lysozyme and the peroxidase system were determined by comparing the numbers of colony‐forming units
  • Hyaluronic acid displayed inhibitory effects on the growth of C. albicans, and the inhibitory effects were proportional to HA concentration
  • HA showed inhibitory effects on the candidacidal activities of lysozyme, and the peroxidase system that was proportional to HA concentration
  • HA at 1.0–2.0 mg ml−1 almost completely inhibited the candidacidal activities of lysozyme and the peroxidase system
