80348-6Escherichia coli enteropathogenic eae gene [Presence] in Stool by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

This assay detects the Escherichia coli enteropathogenic eae gene using PCR and melt curve analysis. This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, BioFire's FilmArray Gastrointestinal panel, which is intended for the detection and identification of nucleic acids from multiple bacteria, viruses, and parasites directly from stool samples from individuals with signs and/or symptoms of gastrointestinal infection.

Part Description

LP200471-3   Escherichia coli enteropathogenic eae gene
Escherichia coli (EC) is a gram-negative, flagellated, rod-shaped bacterium. [https://vetmed.iastate.edu/vdpam/FSVD/swine/index-diseases/colibacillosis] The human gastrointestinal (GI) tract is colonized by EC within hours of birth. The natural barriers of the GI tract prevent infection by symbiotic EC except when they break down such as in peritonitis. EC occupy the mucous layer of the mammalian colon and is the most numerous anaerobe of the intestinal microflora. Some strains of EC have evolved virulence factors that precipitate serious disease including enteric diarrhea, urinary tract infections, sepsis and meningitis. The intestinal pathogens of EC include six pathotypes defined by the virulence factors they express. These include: enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC), enterohaemorrhagic E. coli(EHEC), enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC), enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC), enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC) and diffusely adherent E. coli (DAEC). Uropathogenic EC (UPEC) is the most common EC infection that occurs outside the GI tract. The EC pathotypes that infects extraintestinal locations have been designated ExPEC. The EC pathotypes that infect animals and cause disease include EPEC, EHEC and ETEC.[nature.com/nrmicro/journal/v2/n2/full/nrmicro818.html][vetres.org/articles/vetres/pdf/2006/01/v6008.pdf] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
Changed Method from "Melt.amp.tar" to "Non-probe.amp.tar", which includes other non-probe based detection methods while still distinguishing from probe-based methods.; 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.
