This research trial studies the shotgun sequencing of blood samples in diagnosing febrile neutropenia in patients with acute myeloid leukemia. Studying samples of blood from patients with acute myeloid leukemia in the laboratory may help identify pathogens and accurately diagnose infections such as febrile neutropenia.
I. To test the hypothesis that shotgun metagenomics is not inferior to standard of care diagnostics in the detection of pathogens in patients with febrile neutropenia.
I. To establish a microbiological diagnosis with known or unknown pathogens in patients in whom standard care failed to yield a pathogenic diagnosis.
Patients undergo collection of blood samples before and during the episode of febrile neutropenia for up to 6 weeks.

A technique for analysis of the chemical composition of molecules. A substance is bombarded with monochromatic ELECTRONS. Some of the electrons passing through the specimen will lose energy when they ionize inner shell electrons of the atoms in the specimen. The energy loss is element dependent. Analysis of the energy loss spectrum reveals the elemental composition of a specimen. ENERGY-FILTERED TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY is a type of electron energy loss spectroscopy carried out in electron microscopes specially outfitted to analyze the spectrum of electron energy loss.
Activation analysis in which the specimen is bombarded with neutrons. Identification is made by measuring the resulting radioisotopes. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.
Methods or procedures used to obtain samples of URINE.
The analysis of an activity, procedure, method, technique, or business to determine what must be accomplished and how the necessary operations may best be accomplished.
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
