Clinical evaluation of a type III secretion system real-time PCR assay for diagnosing melioidosis.
J Clin Microbiol. 2006 Aug; 44(8):3028-30.JC

Abstract

A Burkholderia pseudomallei type III secretion system real-time PCR assay was evaluated on clinical specimens in a region where melioidosis is endemic. The PCR was positive in 30/33 (91%) patients with culture-confirmed melioidosis. All six patients with melioidosis septic shock were blood PCR positive, suggesting potential for rapid diagnosis and commencement of appropriate therapy.
