Abstract:

Diagnosis of acute in patients with community-acquired pneumonia can be time-consuming and difficult to confirm using current diagnostic tests. A research prototype assay using Gen-Probe's proprietary transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) technology was evaluated for detection of in throat swabs from patients with documented community-acquired pneumonia. The TMA assay procedure includes target capture, TMA, and the hybridization protection assay. Amplified methods are generally more sensitive than other laboratory methods, particularly for fastidious organisms such as . Therefore, in addition to the initial TMA assay that targets a specific region of rRNA, another target was utilized in an alternate region of rRNA as a confirmatory TMA-based assay.
