BACKGROUND Increased levels of plasma nuclear and mitochondrial DNA have been reported in critically ill patients. We tested the hypothesis that plasma nuclear and mitochondrial DNA are substantially increased in acute bacterial meningitis and decrease after antimicrobial therapy, and that plasma nuclear and mitochondrial DNA levels can predict treatment outcomes. METHODS We examined serial plasma nuclear and mitochondrial DNA levels in 22 adult community-acquired bacterial meningitis (ACABM… CONTINUE READING
