Part Description

LP17134-5   Neisseria meningitidis serogroup Y
SynF is a capsule biosynthesis gene that uniquely identifies Neisseria meningitidis serogroup Y from the other meningococcal serogroups.[https://www.cdc.gov/meningitis/lab-manual/chpt10-pcr.html] There has been a large increase in the proportion of meningococcal disease caused by N. meningitidis serogroup Y since 1989. In the mid-1990s, the incidence increased substantially in the United States (US) and during the past 10 years, it has also increased in Canada, Columbia and Norway. A potential cause of this shift is the fact that the polysaccharide capsule based vaccine formulated for serogroups A, C, W-135 and Y is ineffective against children under 2 years of age and has only been useful for outbreaks of the disease. Recent vaccines for serogroups A and C have proven to be more effective in that age group which has led to serogroup Y being the most likely cause of pneumonia from Neisseria meningitidis. Diagnosis can be confirmed with positive blood, CSF or pleural fluid cultures. [PMID:26057210] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016. Added 'serogroup' to the Component for clarification.
