Background: In this study, it was aimed to investigate the effects of bacterial cells and cell-free filtrates of Lactobacillus acidophilus 8MR7 and Lactobacillus paracasei subspecies paracasei 10MR8 on the biofilm formation of 3 Candida tropicalis, 3 C. glabrata and 12 C. albicans isolated from the vagina and identified their virulence factors.
