The clinical application of metagenomic next-generation sequencing in sepsis of immunocompromised patients
The research discovered that mNGS was more sensitive than the culture method, particularly in samples of blood, BALF, CSF, sputum, and ascitic fluid. When examining the mNGS results, Pneumocystis jirovecii and Mucoraceae were the pathogens seen more commonly in immunocompromised patients with sepsis, which required more attention from clinicians. There was a substantial benefit of mNGS in enhancing the diagnosis of sepsis and advancing patient treatment.
