|Brief Title ICMJE||Multiplex Microarray Chip-Based Diagnosis of Respiratory Infections|
|Official Title ICMJE||Multiplex Microarray Chip-Based Diagnosis of Respiratory Infections|
- TessArray Resequencing Pathogen Microarray is a new technology that can identify multiple infectious agents in a single specimen. Researchers are interested in determining whether the technology can accurately identify the germs responsible for causing respiratory infections. Respiratory samples, such as sputum or cells and fluid from the lungs, will be collected and studied using this technique.
- To evaluate the effectiveness of using TessArray Resequencing Pathogen Microarray to examine and identify infectious agents in respiratory samples.
- Individuals at least 2 years of age who are having respiratory samples collected as part of a doctor's evaluation.
Respiratory infections have a high associated morbidity and mortality, especially in immunocompromised patients. To initiate effective treatment of respiratory infections, it is essential that a rapid and thorough laboratory analysis of respiratory specimens be performed, given the wide range of pulmonary pathogens that can be detected in this population. Conventional microbiology is time-consuming and cumbersome, and the capability of local laboratories to assess specimens for rare or unusual pathogens is often limited. This study will evaluate if a newer technology can be effectively utilized in the identification of a broader range of infectious agents relative to conventional procedures.
The TessArray -Resequencing Pathogen Microarray (RPM) technology (from TessArae , LLC) uses a microarray chip to identify multiple pathogens in a clinical specimen. The technology has had limited clinical application, but early studies have shown its effectiveness in accurately identifying a large number of viral and bacterial organisms. In contrast to conventional microbiological procedures based on phenotypic traits (growth characteristic and enzymatic activity), the TessArray microarray utilizes DNA sequence analysis to detect and identify the species, serotype/subtype, or strain of the infectious agent.
Aliquots of respiratory specimens (initially, specimens collected by bronchoalveolar lavage, BAL) from 200 patients at the NIH Clinical Center and the Washington Hospital Center will be analyzed using the TessArray microarray. The specimens will be collected as part of the patients routine clinical care. The results of the TessArray microarray analysis will not be available to the clinician and therefore will not have any effect on the clinical care of the patients.
The results of the TessArray microarray analysis from each site will be compared to that site s clinical laboratory results, and the data will be analyzed by site.
