This webinar will provide an overview of the development, validation
and clinical evaluation of PathoQuest’s iDTECT Blood. This CE IVD test
represents an application of NGS-based shotgun metagenomics to the
field of infectious disease diagnosis. The test provides
microbiologists and clinicians a precision diagnostics tool allowing
individualized antimicrobial treatment decisions in patients where
current microbiological methods frequently fail to identify a
responsible pathogen. Both the sample preparation and the
bioinformatic pipeline have been optimized to provide high sensitivity
and accuracy and an actionable report. Clinical results from a
prospective study recently published in Clinical Microbiology and
Infection will also be discussed.

Mechanisms of microbial pathogenicity have been extensively analyzed
using a broad spectrum of methods, which are driven largely by the
technologies available at that time. As animal experimentation gave
way to in vitro methods, specific pathogens were systematically
investigated as individual dominant clones and colonizers. With the
arrival of next-generation sequencing, microbiomes of very diverse
habitats are being described. Thus, the microbiome of newborns versus
those of the elderly are now prescribed, also the transition and shift
in complexity and specificity of bacteria from the oral cavity through
to the gut compared to the skin and respiratory are now cataloged and
mapped across communities and in response to stress and stimuli. This
tremendous leap in deciphering the human microbiome has ushered a new
era of microbiology in which formidable challenges in establishing the
foundation of taxonomy, dynamics and function of the residential
microbial communities dominate.
This talk will present the progress made in metagenomics and the use
of largely unassembled sequences in constructing the microbial
communities forming the human microbiome. The knowledge assembled from
microbial whole genome sequences, and the metabolic traits of the
human flora are perhaps the most significant framework for the
construction of reference microbiomes that can drive research into how
transient pathogens establish in new niches and drive the shift from
health to disease.
