There was an increase in the Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) rate in our bone marrow transplantation unit. To evaluate the role of unit-based transmission, C. difficile screening was performed on adult patients admitted for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) over a 2-year period, and C. difficile isolates were typed. C. difficile testing was performed using a 2-step C. difficile glutamate dehydrogenase antigen plus toxin A/B enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and cytotoxin assay (or… CONTINUE READING
