Intended purpose

The Cepheid® Xpert EV assay is a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) using the

GeneXpert Dx System for the presumptive qualitative detection of enterovirus (EV) RNA in cerebrospinal

fluid (CSF) specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of meningitis. This test, in conjunction

with other laboratory results and clinical information, may be used as an aid in the laboratory diagnosis of

enterovirus infection in patients with a clinical suspicion of meningitis or meningoencephalitis. Assay

performance characteristics have not been established for immunocompromised or immunosuppressed

patients.

CAUTION: The results obtained with the Xpert EV assay should be used only as an adjunct to clinical

observations and other information available to the physician. Positive Xpert EV results do not rule out

other causes of meningitis, including bacteria, mycobacteria, other viruses (e.g., herpes family viruses,

arboviruses, mumps virus, etc.), and fungi.

Reporting Avian Influenza surveillance

Published on: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 Avian influenza viruses infect domestic poultry and wild birds as well as humans. In poultry, depending on whether these viruses are of high pathogenicity (HPAI) or low pathogenicity (LPAI), the infection can cause different clinical signs, with HPAI causing high mortality in poultry flocks. In order to ensure early detection of avian influenza viruses, surveillance in poultry and wild birds is considered essential. In 2010, the European Commission provided some guidelines...

Scientific guideline: Draft guideline on the use of minimal residual disease as a clinical endpoint in multiple myeloma studies, draft: consultation open

The guideline aims to address the use of undetectable minimal residual disease (MRD) as an intermediate efficacy endpoint in controlled randomised clinical studies in patients with multiple myeloma (MM), adequately designed to demonstrate efficacy by relevant hard endpoints. MRD as an endpoint in this context would allow earlier approval of new drugs pending final confirmatory data.
