Patients with serious infections such as bacterial endocarditis, osteomyelitis, and necrotizing fasciitis are monitored using the serum bactericidal test (SBT). The SBT is essentially a variation of the broth dilution test adapted to evaluate the activity of a patient's serum against the infecting microorganism.
The test determines the effectiveness of treatment, notably in patients with endocarditis or osteomyelitis.
Endocarditis is an inflammatory disorder of the heart muscles, valves, and lining. Infection is the most common cause of endocarditis. Osteomyelitis, on the other hand, is a bacterial bone infection. It causes pain, swelling in the ankles and joints, fever, and discomfort.
The test requires a blood sample. A needle pricks a vein in your hand or arm to collect blood.
You are not required to prepare for this test.
No particular type of care is required.
