Study: Pneumonia in the ImmunoCompromised - Use of the Karius Test® for the Detection of Undiagnosed Pathogens
Pneumonia is a common infectious cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with hematologic malignancies and those post hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). The PICKUP study, a multi-center, prospective study, interrogates this population for the etiology of pneumonia by comparing the performance of the Karius Test to the adjudicated Standard of Care (SOC). During this presentation, results will be shared on the additive diagnostic value of the Karius Test when used in conjunction with SOC for the diagnosis of suspected pneumonia.
