Morbidity Rate for UTI Through Use of PCR-Based Diagnosis and Management

2019-10-04 08:31:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This retrospective study is to determine if the use of PCR for detection and identification of pathogens in UTI along with antimicrobial susceptibility information, affords more efficacious treatment of UTI, as compared to traditional urine culture for patients served by House Call Physicians.

Description

The objective of this study is to determine if retrospective data will show that use of PCR for detection and identification of pathogens in UTI, and antimicrobial susceptibility information, affords more efficacious treatment of UTI, thereby reducing UTI-related morbidity and costs in a patient population that is served by House Call Physicians. House call physicians attend elderly and other adults patients who are suffering from illness or chronic conditions in the safety, privacy, and comfort of their home or assisted living location. In making house calls, physicians ease the burden and difficulty of these chronic patients from traveling to the doctor's office.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammatory responses of the epithelium of the URINARY TRACT to microbial invasions. They are often bacterial infections with associated BACTERIURIA and PYURIA.

A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.

A second-generation cephalosporin administered intravenously or intramuscularly. Its bactericidal action results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. It is used for urinary tract infections, lower respiratory tract infections, and soft tissue and bone infections.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.

Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.
