73982-1Carbapenem resistance blaNDM gene [Presence] by Molecular methodActive

Term Description

Detection of bla(NDM) genotypes by PCR-based assays in isolates positive for gram-negative bacilli. Test is performed to determine resistance to carbapenems due to NDM (New Dehli metallo-β-lactamase) enzyme production.

Part Description

LP173523-4   Bacterial carbapenem resistance blaNDM gene
New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase (NDM) is an enzyme that makes bacteria resistant to a broad range of beta-lactam antibiotics, including those in the carbapenem family. NDM-1 presents as the most dominant type. The NDM gene encodes beta-lactamase enzymes called carbapenemases. The most common bacteria that make the NDM enzyme are Gram-negative such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, but the gene for NDM can spread from one strain of bacteria to another by horizontal gene transfer.

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].
