Addition of Tobramycin Inhalation in the Treatment of Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

Rationale: Approximately 9-27% of mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) develop ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). Patients in whom VAP develops have a higher mortality rate up to 50%, stay longer in the intensive care unit (ICU), and require more resources than those without the disease. Despite the availability ...

PTH - Preemptive Treatment for Herpesviridae

The aim of this study is to show that a preemptive treatment by ganciclovir (for positive CMV viremia) or aciclovir (for positive HSV oro-pharyngeal PCR) is able to increase the number of ventilator-free days at Day 60.

Corticosteroid Therapy for Severe Community-Acquired Pneumonia

The purpose of the present study is to assess the efficacy of methylprednisolone as an adjuvant therapy in patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) (PSI 4-5). The hypothesis of the study is that methylprednisolone can decrease the mortality of severe CAP without any significant side effects,with reduction of the time ...

Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Evaluation of Linezolid Administered Intravenously in MRSA-positive Morbidly Obese Patients With Pneumonia

The objectives of the study are: (i) to evaluate the proportion of patients who attain a T>MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration) of 100% and the time frame in which they do so. The investigators therefore plan to measure unbound linezolid trough concentrations before administration of the second, third, fourth and fifth ...

Efficacy and Safety Trial to Assess Moxifloxacin in Treating Community-Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) With Aspiration Factors

186 patients in 4 centers will be enrolled in this study. Patients accord with the criteria of CAP with aspiration factors will be enrolled and randomized to one of the following groups. The treatment duration will range from 2 to 4 weeks. Study Group: Intravenous treatment with moxifloxacin 400mg i.v. ...

Trial of Injected Liposomal Bupivacaine vs Bupivacaine Infusion After Surgical Stabilization of Rib Fractures

Rib fractures represent a common injury pattern with high associated morbidity and mortality. Effective pain control in both the acute and long term periods remains a challenge. Surgical stabilization of rib fractures (SSRF) is now a recommended treatment for patients with severe chest wall injuries. In addition to stabilization of ...

GRam Stain-guided Antibiotics ChoicE for Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (GRACE-VAP) Trial

Background: Optimising the use of antibiotic agents is a pressing challenge to overcoming the rapid emergence and spread of multidrug-resistant pathogens in intensive care units (ICUs). Although Gram staining may possibly provide immediate information for predicting pathogenic bacteria, Gram stain-guided initial antibiotic treatment is not well established in the ICU ...

Phase

Study to Compare the Efficacy of Pristinamycin (Pyostacine ) Versus Amoxicillin in the Treatment of Acute Community Acquired Pneumonia

The total study duration for each patient is 1 month with a treatment period of 7 to 9 days and a follow-up period of 21 to 23 days.

Phase

Probiotics to Prevent Severe Pneumonia and Endotracheal Colonization Trial

Background:Probiotics are live microorganisms thought to have health benefits when ingested. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have documented favourable impact on a range of clinical problems, including prevention of upper respiratory tract infections, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome. Our recent meta-analysis of probiotic RCTs in the intensive ...

Randomized Embedded Multifactorial Adaptive Platform Trial for Community- Acquired Pneumonia

Patients with pneumonia who are being treated in an ICU will receive many different treatments, as many as 20 or 30, that act together to treat both the infection and its effects on the body. When treating a patient, doctors choose from many different treatments, most of which are known ...
