Prophylactic Antibiotics for Prostate Biopsy
The discussion regarding the best strategies for selecting prophylaxis for prostate biopsies to minimize infectious complications continued in this year’s sessions. One group reported on the use of next generation DNA sequencing to test rectal swabs for the purpose of tailoring the prebiopsy antibiotic regimen (MP15- 14). Infectious complications were avoided in 23 of 24 patients, with only a single patient having cystitis 3 weeks after biopsy
The diagnosis of periprosthetic joint infection can be difficult due to the high rate of culturenegative infections. The aim of this study was to assess the use of next-generation sequencing for detecting organisms in synovial fluid…

Next-generation sequencing is a well-established technique for sequencing of DNA and has recently gained attention in many fields of medicine. Our aim was to evaluate the accuracy of next-generation sequencing in identifying the causative organism(s) in patients with periprosthetic joint infection.

Introduction and Objective:
The introduction of next generation sequencing (NGS) via DNA technology allows us to analyze the complete genomic profile of the gut microbiota with detection of resistance genes to the most frequently used antibiotics in empiric prophylaxis.
