Protein Microarray Detects Antibodies in Melioidosis Patients

The environmental bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei is the cause of the infectious disease melioidosis with a high case-fatality rate in tropical and subtropical regions. Direct pathogen detection can be difficult, and therefore an indirect serological test, which might aid early diagnosis is desirable. More...
