Nanosphere, Inc. Announces Clinical Study Results of Verigene Gram-Positive Blood Culture Test

Nanosphere, Inc. announced publication of a study that demonstrates the clinical and economic impact of implementing rapid sepsis diagnostic testing with the Company's FDA-cleared Verigene Gram-Positive Blood Culture Test (BC-GP) in combination with Antimicrobial Stewardship Team (AST) intervention. This multi-center, pre-post study was conducted at the five hospitals that compose Scripps Health in San Diego, California and published in the peer-reviewed journal Pharmacotherapy. The statistically significant findings included a 25.7 hour reduction in time to targeted therapy (61.1 versus 35.4 hours), a 1.9 day median reduction in length of stay (9.1 versus 7.2 days) and $7,240 reduction in median hospital costs per patient ($17,530 versus $10,290). The manuscript, published under the title "Outcomes of Rapid Identification for Gram Positive Bacteremia in Combination with Antibiotic Stewardship at a Community Based Hospital System," was composed by Maggix Box, PharmD, Eva Sullivan, PharmD, Kristine Ortwine, MPH, Mark Parmenter, PharmD, Michael Quigley, MD, Louise Aguilar-Higgins, CLS, MT, Cynthia MacIntosh, CLS, Kristina Goerke, CLS, and Rachael Lim, PharmD.

Nanosphere Announces Verigene System Positioned to Provide Rapid Diagnosis of Outbreaks of CRE "Superbugs"

Nanosphere, Inc. announced that it offers the Verigene® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Test (BC-GN), approved by the FDA in June 2014 as the first and only FDA-cleared test that rapidly identifies the five carbapenem resistance genes most commonly associated with carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE). Three recent outbreaks of CRE, also known as "superbugs," are shining light on the dangers associated with multi-drug-resistant infections. Across three U.S. medical centers, the outbreaks led to two deaths and affected nearly 300 patients overall. While considered rare in the U.S., the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that 48 states have had confirmed cases of CRE infections. The Verigene® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Test (BC-GN) detects CRE days faster than current testing methods, which Nanosphere believes may enable clinicians to optimize treatment of patients.
