The SPC has been updated as follows:

Section 5.1

Addition under subsection Susceptibility in vitro:

C. krusei is intrinsically resistant to fluconazole. The wild-type population of C. glabrata is of intermediate susceptibility (I) to fluconazole. The MICs and epidemiological cut-off value (ECOFF) of fluconazole for C. guilliermondiishows a wide range of are higher than for C. albicans susceptibility while C. krusei is resistant to fluconazole. The recently emerging species C. auris tends to be relatively resistant to fluconazole.

Addition under subsection Mechanisms of resistance:

In usually susceptible species of Candida, the most commonly encountered mechanism of resistance development involves the target enzymes of the azoles, which are responsible for the biosynthesis of ergosterol. Resistance may be caused by mutation, increased production of an enzyme, drug efflux mechanisms, or the development of compensatory pathways.

and

The resistance mechanisms have not been completely elucidated in some intrinsically resistant (C. krusei) or emerging (C. auris) species of Candida.

Addition under EUCAST Breakpoints
