Albicans versus NAC species. A study from Thailand reported APACHE II score greater than 15 and central venous catheters, but not, immunocompromised conditions, as the predominant risk factors for acquiring bloodstream infections due to C. albicans compared with NAC species (Apisarnthanarak et al. 2009). 3 Spectrum of Candida Species Historically, C. albicans accounted for 70–80% cases of invasive candidiasis, but the trend has gradually shifted towards NAC species in the past few decades. The shift is much more in South-Asian countries where NAC species were reported in 70–90% of cases (Chakrabarti et al.
