  • Validation of Metagenomic Next-Generation Sequencing Tests for Universal Pathogen Detection

    Validation of Metagenomic Next-Generation Sequencing Tests for Universal Pathogen Detection

    Metagenomic sequencing can be used for detection of any pathogens using unbiased, shotgun next-generation sequencing (NGS), without the need for sequence-specific amplification. Proof-of-concept has been demonstrated in infectious disease outbreaks of unknown causes and in patients with suspected infections but negative results for conventional tests. Metagenomic NGS tests hold great promise to improve infectious disease diagnostics, especially in immunocompromised and critically ill patients.

  • Urine test could detect Zika virus quickly, protect unborn babies

    Urine test could detect Zika virus quickly, protect unborn babies

    There is no vaccine. No medication. And, no quick, reliable test for Zika virus … until now. Babies born with the virus often have lifelong, devastating birth defects. Testing for the virus currently involves trained medical staff drawing and mailing blood samples to a lab, a process that can take up to four weeks. Scientists have now developed a quick, simple test for Zika virus so easy to administer, you don't even need a doctor.

  • Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense Tapeworm Larvae in Salmon from North America

    Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense Tapeworm Larvae in Salmon from North America

    Diphyllobothriosis is reemerging because of global importation and increased popularity of eating raw fish. We detected Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense plerocercoids in the musculature of wild pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) from Alaska, USA. Therefore, salmon from the American and Asian Pacific coasts and elsewhere pose potential dangers for persons who eat these fish raw.
