Abstract: 

In this study, we investigated the antifungal effects of silver nanoparticles (Ag-Nps) on Candida albicans (ATCC 5027), Saccharomyces cerevisiae (ATCC 5027). Investigating method by using Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) technique, some of drugs including Amphotericin B, Fluconazole and synthesized Ag-Nps have been obtained on the fungi and the changes on membrane reactions of yeasts have been elucidated by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The present study indicates Ag-Nps has considerable antifungal activity comparison with other antifungal drugs, so deserving further investigation for clinical applications.
