Host gene expression classifiers diagnose acute respiratory illness etiology.
(Sci Transl Med, 2016-01-20)
Acute respiratory infections caused by bacterial or viral pathogens are among the most common reasons for seeking medical care. Despite improvements in pathogen-based diagnostics, most patients receive inappropriate antibiotics. ...
Gene expression-based classifiers identify Staphylococcus aureus infection in mice and humans.
(PLoS One, 2013)
Staphylococcus aureus causes a spectrum of human infection. Diagnostic delays and uncertainty lead to treatment delays and inappropriate antibiotic use. A growing literature suggests the host's inflammatory response to the ...
Temporal dynamics of host molecular responses differentiate symptomatic and asymptomatic influenza a infection.
(PLoS Genet, 2011-08)
Exposure to influenza viruses is necessary, but not sufficient, for healthy human hosts to develop symptomatic illness. The host response is an important determinant of disease progression. In order to delineate host molecular ...
