A 2015 study led by +UC Davis pathologist Dr. Christopher Polage found that a popular molecular test overdiagnoses Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infections in hospitalized patients, sometimes by as much as 50 percent. For his research findings, Polage recently received a Distinguished Clinical Research Award from the Clinical Research Forum. https://youtu.be/Qoz068yBjZM #Cdiff #antibiotics
