<jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title> <jats:p>Anidulafungin targets the cell walls of <jats:italic>Candida</jats:italic> species by inhibiting β-1,3-glucan synthase, thereby killing isolates and exerting prolonged postantifungal effects (PAFEs). We performed time-kill and PAFE experiments on <jats:italic>Candida albicans</jats:italic> (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic> = 4), <jats:italic>C. glabrata</jats:italic> (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic> = 3), <jats:italic>C. parapsilosis</jats:italic> (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic> = 3), and <jats:italic>C. krusei</jats:italic> (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic> = 2) isolates and characterized the PAFEs in greater detail. MICs were 0.008...
