Abstract

We determined the association between DNA load and mortality in patients with Vibrio vulnificus infection. Real-time PCR performed on sera of 27 culture-positive patients showed a significantly higher median DNA load in nonsurvivors than in survivors. Hence, real-time PCR can be used as an early prognostic factor in V. vulnificus septicemia.
