    Multiplex Antimicrobial Resistance Gene Detection for Urinary Tract Infection Antibiotic Guidance
    Author(s): Tracy Brownlee*

    The identification of antimicrobial resistance markers in urinary tract infections could lead to a more targeted approach to UTI diagnosis and treatment, reducing overall public health burdens. We describe a molecular assay as a diagnostic tool for antibiotic resistance characterization in order to promote faster antibiotic regimen diagnosis when compared to standard microbiology techniques. Targeted antibiotic use for pathogenic infections remains a primary goal for effective antibiotic treatment protocols and lowering the overall public health burden. Rapid identification of the pathogen causing the infection and harbouring the antibiotic resistance gene is also an important area of research for antibiotic appropriation and stewardship...
