Sorry if the following not is direct related to you question:
C. albicans makes methylmercury out of mercury, and some researches believe c. albicans uses this to destroy IgA receptors in the GI tracts wall – there by hindering the use of secreted (and very important) IgA antibodies in the intestine. Thereby inhibiting the overall imunne defence versus candida in you intestine.
my source: (in Norwegian) http://www.candidaallergy.com/nor/sos.asp (search, IgA).
But, if you do not secret IgA in the first place.. go figure 🙂
