Abstract

Present work is intended to study the anti-candida and anti-adhesion efficiencies of zinc ferrite nanoparticles (ZnFe2O4 NPs), obtained by using a simple, cost-effective sol-gel auto-combustion method. Results of this study suggest that the ZnFe2O4 NPs hold the potential for anti-candida activity, also capable to restrict the 99% cell adhesion and can be a promising nanomaterial against Candida albicans.
