"Longitudinal genomic surveillance of carriage and transmission of Clostridioides difficile in an intensive care unit"

Findings from a longitudinal study led by Evan Snitkin, Ph.D., Vincent Young, M.D., Ph.D., and first author Arianna Miles-Jay, a postdoctoral fellow in the Snitkin lab, suggests that hospital infections caused by the bacterium Clostridioides difficile may be less a matter of hospital transmission and more a result of characteristics associated with the patients themselves.
