Clinical metagenomics assessments improve diagnosis and outcomes in community-acquired pneumonia
BMC Infectious Diseases
Background Identifying the causes of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is challenging due to the disease's complex etiology and the limitations of traditional microbiological diagnostic methods. Recent advances in next generation sequencing (NGS)-based metagenomics allow pan-pathogen detection in a single assay, and may have significant advantages over culture-based techniques. Results We conducted a cohort study of 159 CAP patients to assess the diagnostic performance of a clinicaldoi:10.1186/s12879-021-06039-1 pmid:33858378 fatcat:hpuci5ncp5bappc3lfwva5p6gy
