Date:7/18/2013

Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

NORTHBROOK, IL—July 18, 2013—Nanosphere, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSPH), a leader in the development and commercialization of advanced molecular diagnostics systems, together with Xtalks, will host an interactive webinar entitled: “Each Hour Counts: Improving Management of Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and Other Antibiotic-Resistant Bloodstream Infections with Rapid Molecular Diagnostics.” The complimentary webinar will be held on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 1:00pm EDT.

Each year in the United States, there are more than 1.5 million hospital stays associated with bloodstream infections and septicemia, resulting in nearly 100,000 deaths and over $15 billion in healthcare costs [1].

Treatment of these serious bacterial infections in clinical practice is often complicated by antibiotic resistance, which has been associated with prolonged hospital stays, higher health care costs and increased mortality. The recent emergence of CREs is especially troubling, as there are very few antibiotic alternatives available to treat these bacteria.

In this webinar, Karen Carroll, M.D., Professor of Pathology and Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; Nathan Ledeboer, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Pathology, Medical College of Wisconsin; and Debra Goff, PharmD, Clinical Associate Professor at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, will discuss strategies for managing antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections. These recognized leaders will review new molecular technologies that identify bacteria and corresponding antibiotic resistance more rapidly than traditional culture methods, and may enable earlier optimization of antibiotic therapy, thereby improving patient outcomes.
