For more information, visit In prior years, surveys of participants in National Memory Screening Day showed that the majority of people with memory concerns had not discussed the problem with their doctors despite recent visits. According to the National Institute on Aging, as many as 4.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, which causes loss of memory and other intellectual functions. With age the greatest known risk aspect, the incidence of the condition doubles every five years between 65 and 95.Gern, M.D., Joseph L. DeRisi, Ph.D., and Charles Y. Chiu, M.D., Ph.D.: Brief Report: Actionable Analysis of Neuroleptospirosis by Next-Generation Sequencing More than half the full situations of meningoencephalitis remain undiagnosed, despite extensive clinical laboratory tests.1-4 Because more than 100 different infectious agents could cause encephalitis, establishing a medical diagnosis by using cultures, serologic exams, and pathogen-particular PCR assays can be hard. Unbiased next-generation sequencing has the potential to revolutionize our capability to discover emerging pathogens, especially newly identified viruses.5-8 However, the usefulness of next-generation sequencing for the diagnosis of infectious diseases in a clinically relevant timeframe is basically unexplored.9 We used unbiased next-generation sequencing to identify a treatable, albeit rare, bacterial cause of meningoencephalitis.
