Diagnosis of Periprosthetic Joint Infection Using Polymerase Chain Reaction: An Updated Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

08:00 EDT 19th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Diagnosis of Periprosthetic Joint Infection Using Polymerase Chain Reaction: An Updated Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis."

We aim to update a meta-analysis to evaluate the efficiency of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for diagnosis of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) because different types of PCR assays have yielded variable diagnostic efficiency from 2013.

Is Polymerase Chain Reaction in Neonatal Dried Blood Spots Reliable for the Diagnosis of Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection?

Detection of cytomegalovirus (CMV) DNA by real-time polymerase chain reaction (rt-PCR) in dried blood spots (DBS) collected for newborn screening has been assessed for retrospective diagnosis of conge...

Debridement, antibiotics and implant retention for periprosthetic joint infections: A systematic review and meta-analysis of treatment outcomes.

We aimed to assess infection control rates after DAIR in patients with periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) following joint arthroplasty and evaluate factors associated with infection control using a ...

Intra-operative diagnosis of periprosthetic joint infection can rely on frozen sections in patients without synovial fluid analyses.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether frozen sections can increase diagnostic values of serological tests for the assessment of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) in patients without sy...

Potential Role for Urine Polymerase Chain Reaction in the Diagnosis of Whipple's Disease.

Whipple's disease (WD) is a rare infection with Tropheryma whipplei that is fatal if untreated. Diagnosis is challenging and currently based on invasive sampling. In a case of WD diagnosed from a kidn...

Comparison of multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction with serological tests and culture for diagnosing human brucellosis.

Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease with various clinical presentations and early diagnosis is crucial to avoid severe complications. Due to limitations of conventional diagnostic methods, polymerase ch...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods for using more than one primer set in a polymerase chain reaction to amplify more than one segment of the target DNA sequence in a single reaction.

Methods used for detecting the amplified DNA products from the polymerase chain reaction as they accumulate instead of at the end of the reaction.

A heat stable DNA-DIRECTED DNA POLYMERASE from the bacteria Thermus aquaticus. It is widely used for the amplification of genes through the process of POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION. EC 2.7.7.-.

In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.

A technique that labels specific sequences in whole chromosomes by in situ DNA chain elongation or PCR (polymerase chain reaction).
