Proteomic Biomarkers: Predicting Death from Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia
Researchers have taken a proteomic approach to identifying biomarkers associated with higher mortality in Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia
Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia is a major cause of illness and death worldwide – and one that’s tricky to diagnose early. The longer the infection goes untreated, the more a patient’s risk of death increases. With this in mind, David Gonzalez and colleagues – proteomics specialists at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine – investigated whether proteomic and metabolomic readouts from a patient’s blood sample could serve as predictive markers of response to infection – and, ultimately, risk of mortality.
