How Karius Saved My Life: Brian’s Story

Dear Karius,

I am writing in heartfelt appreciation for the Karius Test, which literally saved my life by identifying the deadly strain of bacteria (Fusobacterium) that had caused my life-threatening pneumonia.

Although I had a dedicated, skilled and hard-working medical team treating me at my local hospital, the hospital had not been able to identify the bacterial pneumonia that I had; therefore, they were not able to customize my treatment plan to target the pneumonia. I had been in the intensive care unit on life support for 8 days and was in the hospital for a total of 16 days as the doctors desperately tried different treatments, which were not curing me. Once the Karius Test identified the specific bacteria causing my pneumonia, my medical team was able to rapidly customize my treatment plan to aggressively target the bacteria and I finally began to recover from my illness.

I am convinced that without the Karius Test, I would not be here today and would have left so many people behind to grieve for me, including my beloved son. I am forever grateful to Karius for providing the key information that helped save my life, and from my personal experience, I know that the Karius Test could be the key to saving lives of so many more patients.

Sincerely,

Brian J
