Diagnosis of bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia by amplification of pneumolysin gene fragment in serum.
Salo P, Ortqvist A, Leinonen M. Salo P, et al. Among authors: ortqvist a. J Infect Dis. 1995 Feb;171(2):479-82. doi: 10.1093/infdis/171.2.479. J Infect Dis. 1995. PMID: 7844395
Two pairs of oligonucleotide primers were designed to amplify a 348-bp and a 208-bp fragment of the pneumolysin gene. Amplified products were analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis and hybridization using a 24-mer probe internal to the amplified DNA. ...Thus …

Comparison of three methods for detection of pneumococcal antigen in sputum of patients with community-acquired pneumonia.
