Using the Level 2 Next Generation Sequencing Report for Recurrent UTI Patients – Summary:

A. Lenore Ackerman, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery, Urology and Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, interviews Ryan J. Malone, MD, Urologist at First Urology in Jeffersonville, Indiana, about using microbial DNA diagnostics in a clinical context for recurrent UTI. They address how next generation sequencing (NGS) gleans resistance gene data, which patients benefit most, the collection process, ease of use, and patient response. Additionally, they analyze a sample Level 2 report for recurrent UTI patients and discuss how its data can guide treatment.
