Antibiotic resistance prediction for Mycobacterium tuberculosis from genome sequence data with Mykrobe.

sensitive and 99%, 100%, 99%, 99% specific for rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide and ethambutol resistance prediction respectively. We benchmark against four other tools on 10207 (=5845+4362) samples, and ...

Shifting national surveillance of Shigella infections toward geno-serotyping by the development of a tailored Luminex assay and NGS workflow.

successful marker was a Shigella-specific deletion in the spermidine acetyltransferase gene speG, reflecting its metabolic decay. For Shigella serotype prediction, the multiplex assay scored a sensitivity and ...

Seroprevalence of border disease virus and other pestiviruses in sheep in Algeria and associated risk factors.

C.I.: 52.96-66.96). The true seroprevalence based on estimated sensitivity and specificity of the Ab- ELISA was 68.20% (95% C.I.; 60.2-76.3). Several risk factors were identified as linked to BDV such as ...

Evaluation of three MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry libraries for the identification of filamentous fungi in three clinical microbiology laboratories in Manitoba, Canada.

Sensitivity and Specificity Spectrometry, Mass, Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption-Ionization Abstract: Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI- TOF MS) is commonly ...

VALHUDES: A protocol for validation of human papillomavirus assays and collection devices for HPV testing on self-samples and urine samples.

aims to compare the clinical sensitivity and specificity of particular hrHPV assay(s) on vaginal self-samples and first-void-urine, collected in agreement with standardized protocols, with hrHPV testing ...

Prediction of Susceptibility to First-Line Tuberculosis Drugs by DNA Sequencing

ethambutol (8794 [89.8%] of 9794). Resistance to isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide was correctly predicted with 97.1%, 97.5%, 94.6%, and 91.3% sensitivity, respectively, and susceptibility to ...

Clinical Evaluation of INNO-LiPA HPV Genotyping II Assay Using the VALGENT Framework.

sensitivity of 1.01; 95% CI, 0.97⁻1.04; = 0.0002) and a specificity for ≤ CIN1 of 85.3% (95% CI, 83.2⁻87.3%) which was inferior to HC2 (relative specificity of 0.95; 95% CI, 0.93⁻0.97; = 0.9998). Genotyping ...

Rapid detection of tetracycline resistance in bovine Pasteurella multocida isolates by MALDI Biotyper antibiotic susceptibility test rapid assay (MBT-ASTRA).

a comparison with disk diffusion was made. Sensitivity and specificity of the MBT- ASTRA procedure were 95.7% (95% confidence interval (CI) = 89.8-101.5) and 100% (95% CI  = 100-100), respectively, classifying ...

Application of whole genome data for in silico evaluation of primers and probes routinely employed for the detection of viral species by RT-qPCR using dengue virus as a case study.

sensitivity and specificity. CONCLUSIONS: We provide a comprehensive overview of dengue virus RT-qPCR method performance that will aid appropriate method selection allowing to take specific measures that aim to ...

Subcutaneous Granulomatous Inflammation due to Basidiobolomycosis: Case Reports of 3 Patients in Buruli Ulcer Endemic Areas in Benin.

other diseases, such as soft tissue tumors, lymphoma, or Buruli ulcer in the preulcerative stage. Microbiological confirmation by PCR for and culture yield the most specific diagnosis, yet they are not ...
