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. ...
Transcriptomic Analysis of the Host Response and Innate Resilience to Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli Infection in Humans.
(J Infect Dis, 2016-05-01)
BACKGROUND: Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) is a globally prevalent cause of diarrhea. Though usually self-limited, it can be severe and debilitating. Little is known about the host transcriptional response to infection. ...
Potential Cost-effectiveness of Early Identification of Hospital-acquired Infection in Critically Ill Patients.
(Ann Am Thorac Soc, 2016-03)
RATIONALE: Limitations in methods for the rapid diagnosis of hospital-acquired infections often delay initiation of effective antimicrobial therapy. New diagnostic approaches offer potential clinical and cost-related improvements ...
A host transcriptional signature for presymptomatic detection of infection in humans exposed to influenza H1N1 or H3N2.
(PLoS One, 2013)
There is great potential for host-based gene expression analysis to impact the early diagnosis of infectious diseases. In particular, the influenza pandemic of 2009 highlighted the challenges and limitations of traditional ...
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 ...
