Invasive Candida infections are associated with a significant morbidity and mortality. Detection of circulating biomarkers has been shown to precede conventional diagnostic methods, which is important in improving outcome. We investigated the performance of multiple biomarkers using Candida antigen and anti-Candida antibody detection systems of Platelia and Serion and beta-d-glucan detection in serial serum samples from patients, treated for leukemia, with invasive candidiasis. The performance… CONTINUE READING
