The principal aim of this study is to establish if a polymorphism in a gene important for innate immunity to fungi represents a significant risk factor for the development of Candida colonisation and subsequent invasive candidosis in critically ill patients. Incorporation of a screening programme onto a risk-based algorithm for critical care patients would allow more effective targeting of molecular diagnostic tests, anti-fungal prophylaxis and targeted treatment. Sequential critical care patients will be screened for gene polymorphisms and undergo regular screening for Candida colonization.
