Part Description

LP64707-0   Bacterial carbapenem resistance blaKPC gene
Non-susceptibility to carbapenems in gram-negative bacilli by means of the enzyme KPC (Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase) is becoming more common. The gene beta-lactamase KPC (bla(KPC)) encodes KPC enzyme production, which in turn hydrolyzes and inactivates carbapenem antibiotics. KPC enzymes are a class A beta lactamases with several variants (KPC-2, KPC-3, etc) known. Various methods are used to detect specific portions of genes encoding KPC production. Carbapenemases can also be detected by other methods, including the modified Hodge test to detect carbapenemase production in isolates and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) to determine level of resistance.

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.; Corrected Component from "Bacterial carbapenemase resistance" to "Bacterial carbapenem resistance" (because the bacteria are resistant to carbapenem antibiotics by virtue of producing carbapenemase) and removed parentheses around and within the gene name according to recommended nomenclature [PMID: 25249841]; Updated System from "Isolate" and Method from "Probe.amp.tar" according to the new, more sustainable model for LOINC molecular resistance terms [Approved by LOINC Laboratory Committee in June 2018].
