Blood transcriptomic discrimination of bacterial and viral infections in the emergency department: a multi-cohort observational validation study

Abstract Background There is an urgent need to develop biomarkers that stratify risk of bacterial infection in order to support antimicrobial stewardship in emergency hospital admissions. Methods We used computational machine learning to derive a rule-out blood transcriptomic signature of bacterial infection (SeptiCyte™ TRIAGE) from eight published case-control studies. We...

Conquering Sepsis Clinical Trial Design

Designing and operating clinical trials for diagnosing sepsis can be a challenge, as the gold standard for sepsis detection offers a very low prediction rate due to the nature of how sepsis evolves in patients. FDA gold-standard septic blood cultures predict sepsis only 14% of the time, which makes it...
