Cerebrospinal fluid markers to distinguish bacterial meningitis from cerebral malaria in children

Abstract:

Background

Few hospitals in high malaria endemic countries in Africa have the diagnostic capacity for clinically distinguishing acute bacterial meningitis (ABM) from cerebral malaria (CM). As a result, empirical use of antibiotics is necessary. A biochemical marker of ABM would facilitate precise clinical diagnosis and management of these infections and enable rational use of antibiotics.

Methods

We used label-free protein quantification by mass spectrometry to id...
