Descripción de una nueva herramienta para identificar los serotipos neumocócicos en muestras clínicas.

PCR EN TIEMPO REAL PARA EL ESTUDIO DEL SEROTIPO NEUMOCÓCICO EN EL EMPIEMA PLEURAL PARANEUMONICO PEDIÁTRICO

La vigilancia epidemiológica de la enfermedad neumocócica invasiva requiere herramientas moleculares para el conocimiento de los serotipos y genotipos circulantes. Es imprescindible para la toma de decisiones por las autoridades sanitarias para las políticas preventivas de intervención en salud pública. Ya que el rendimiento de los cultivos microbiológicos es muy bajo, es necesaria una metodología de PCR que resuelva este problema.
