Release of Nociceptin From Granulocytes in Sepsis

Nociceptin is a protein found in the body, with a number of functions in the central nervous system, blood vessels and the gut. There is evidence that it may have a role in controlling the immune response to infection, and may act as a link between the brain and immune ...

Phase N/A

Collection of Lung Fluid and Tissue Samples for Research

This research protocol involves one or more of the following procedures in healthy volunteers and patients with known or suspected predisposition to respiratory infection who are enrolled in National Institutes of Health (NIH) protocols: 1) Adults only: bronchoscopy with sampling of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and epithelial cells in healthy adult ...

Phase N/A

Mitochondrial DNA as a Biomarker of Sepsis Severity

Despite the advances of modern medicine, sepsis persists as one of the leading causes of death in the United States and poses a significant burden on U.S. health care, accounting for more than $24 billion of total hospital costs in 2013. The high mortality and cost of treating sepsis at ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Emergency Department Care Reorganization on Door-to-antibiotic Times for Sepsis (LDS SWARM)

This is a retrospective cohort study of emergency department sepsis care before versus after implementation of a "swarming" model for simultaneous patient evaluation by multidisciplinary care providers. The analysis will use data from similar hospitals that did not change sepsis care organization during the study period to control for changes ...

Phase N/A

Study of the Colonic Carriage of Staphylococcus Aureus in a Prospective Cohort of Patients Undergoing Endoscopic Screening for Digestive Cancer in the University Hospital of Saint-Etienne

Epidemiological study aiming to describe the carriage (nasal, throat, groin, rectal and colonic) of S. aureus in patients without chronic digestive disease who are going to have a colonoscopy for cancer screening. The carriage will be analyzed globally and the similarity of strains isolated from each site will be analyzed ...

Phase N/A

Echo vs. EGDT in Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock

Echocardiography (cardiac ultrasound) is being used more often in the critical care setting for management of severe infection (septic shock). Early studies show echocardiography to be useful in these patients, but at this time, there are no good clinical trials to justify its use. Our study goals/objectives are as follows: ...

Phase N/A

Application of Stimulated Immune Response Change to Predict Outcome of Patient With Severe Sepsis

Binding of TLRs to epitopes on microorganisms stimulates intracellular signaling, increasing transcription of proinflammatory molecules such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF-) and interleukin-1, as well as antiinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-10. Macrophage dysfunction, as a component of immune suppression seen during trauma and sepsis, appears to be one of the ...

Phase N/A

Short-course Antimicrobial Therapy in Sepsis

The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of a short course antimicrobial therapy (5-days) versus a 10-days therapy on sepsis-related organ dysfunction.


Assessment of Heparin Binding Protein for the Prediction of Severe Sepsis

The primary objective of this study is to use HBP concentration to indicate the presence, or outcome, of severe sepsis (including septic shock) at admission and to predict the outcome of severe sepsis (including septic shock) over 72 hours, in patients with suspected infection following emergency department admission. The secondary ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Fluid Resuscitation With 0.9% Sodium Chloride Versus Balanced Crystalloid Solution on Renal Function of Sepsis Patients

The high chloride content of 0.9%sodium chloride (0.9%NaCl) leads to adverse pathophysiological effects in both animals and healthy human volunteers. Small randomized trials confirm that the hyperchloremic acidosis induced by 0.9%NaCl also occurs in patients. A strong signal is emerging from recent large propensity-matched and cohort studies for the adverse ...
