Correspondence: wty@bu.edu Philips Research North America, Cambridge, MA, USA Full list of author information is available at the end of the article Abstract Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a risk for patients and a burden for the healthcare system. However, AMR assays typically take several days. This study develops predictive models for AMR based on easily available clinical and microbiological predictors, including patient demographics, hospital stay data, diagnoses, clinical features, and… 

Tables from this paper


Antimicrobial Resistance Prediction in PATRIC and RAST
The PATRIC FTP server is updated to enable access to genomes that are binned by their AMR phenotypes, as well as metadata including minimum inhibitory concentrations, to provide an initial framework for species-specific AMR phenotype and genomic feature prediction in the RAST and PATRIC annotation services.
Early prediction of level-of-care requirements in patients with COVID-19
This study examined records of 2566 consecutive COVID-19 patients at five Massachusetts hospitals and sought to predict level-of-care requirements based on clinical and laboratory data to identify factors that form a signature of the novel CO VID-19 disease.
Genome Sequence-Based Discriminator for Vancomycin-Intermediate Staphylococcus aureus
The machine-learning approach described here provides a generalized framework for the application of genome sequence analysis to the classification of bacteria that differ with respect to clinically relevant phenotypes and should be particularly useful in defining the genomic features that underlie antibiotic resistance.
Machine Learning for Antimicrobial Resistance
A work in progress case study performing analysis on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) using standard ensemble machine learning techniques and note the successes and pitfalls such work entails.
Risk prediction for 30-day mortality among patients with Clostridium difficile infections: a retrospective cohort study
A model that included novel biomarkers of BUN-to-SCr ratio and glucose have a higher predictive performance of 30-day mortality and prolonged ICU stay following CDI than do the guidelines.
Predictive computational phenotyping and biomarker discovery using reference-free genome comparisons
The method allows the generation of accurate and interpretable predictive models of phenotypes, which rely on a small set of genomic variations, and is applicable to a variety of organisms and phenotypes.
Interpretable Model for Antibiotic Resistance Prediction in Bacteria using Deep Learning
The model is accurate, faithful to biological pathways targeted by the antibiotics, and they provide insight into the process of resistance acquisition, and the model is computationally scalable and well suited for whole genome sequencing studies.
Readmissions and Death after ICU Discharge: Development and Validation of Two Predictive Models
Using eICU® Research Institute data from >400 ICUs, robust models predictive of post-discharge death and readmission that may be incorporated into future clinical information systems (CIS) to assist ICU discharge planning are developed.
Predicting diabetes-related hospitalizations based on electronic health records
A new joint clustering/classification method is proposed that achieves an accuracy of 89% and yields informative clusters which can help interpret the classification results, thus increasing the trust of physicians to the algorithmic output and providing some guidance towards preventive measures.
A pan-genome-based machine learning approach for predicting antimicrobial resistance activities of the Escherichia coli strains
Application of machine learning algorithms to predict whether specific strains were resistant to antibiotic drugs yielded the best prediction accuracy for the set of AMR genes within the accessory part of the pan‐genome, suggesting that these gene clusters were most crucial to AMR activities in E. coli.
