Academic Journal
The article presents information on molecular diagnostic test studies by R. Kanungo based on the article entitled "Adaptive evolution of diagnostic resistance" in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology of co-author D. Metzgar. The author used of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test that creates pressure to determine antibiotic treatment. He analyzed the phenomenon that occurs when highly specific molecular diagnostic test to define treatment which he calls diagnostic resistance.
