Clinical Metagenomics of Infective Endocarditis

Background and Rationale Infective endocarditis (IE) is an infection of cardiac valves. IE mainly involves bacteria, more rarely fungi. IE is an uncommon diseases with an estimated incidence of 1-12 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per year. The diagnostic of IE relies on the collection of biological samples (blood cultures and ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Clinical Care Pathway on Prognosis and Therapeutic Medical Care of Infective Endocarditis

Infective endocarditis (IE) is defined as a bacterial infection of the endocardium (inner surface of the heart), which may include one or more heart valves. Epidemiologic pattern has changed during the last 20 years whereas the incidence was unchanged. However, the mortality increase despite recent diagnosis and therapeutic advances. Only ...

Fever and Shivering: Frequency and Role in Predicting Serious Bacterial Infection

Background: Fever is a common complaint and lacking localizing signs poses a diagnostic dilemma, mostly, but not only, in children under 3 years of age. Recent years studies found common clinical markers for a Serious Bacterial Infection (SBI) to be ineffective in confirming or ruling out a suspected SBI in ...

Phase N/A

Surveillance of Hospitalised Pneumonia and Bacterial Meningitis in T ne District Togo 2010-2013

The aim of this study is to estimate the burden of disease due to pneumococci, other bacteria and viruses in the African meningitis belt prior to pneumococcal conjugate vaccine introduction and to estimate the population impact of the vaccine after its implementation in 2014. In a defined population of a ...

Phase N/A

Rapid Test for Detection of the Focus of Infection in Post Neurosurgical Patients.

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is local acute phase protein with regenerative properties that become biologic inactive during chronic inflammation and loses the binding affinity to glycosaminoglycan in the extracellular ma-trix. HGF is excreted into the gastrointestinal tract and is not detected in normal urine. Nosocomial meningitis can occur when brain ...

Phase N/A

Study of Tigecycline Pharmacokinetics in Patients Undergoing Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy(CRRT)

The aim of this study is to determine the Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics(PK/PD) of tigecycline in critical ill patients undergoing continuous renal replacement therapyCRRTand examine whether the dosage needs adjustment. The study will observe two groups of patients respectively and compare the difference between them. Patients who need to receive CRRT when treat ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Bismuth Containing Quadruple Therapy and Based Tailored Therapy for H. Pylori Infection

In order to be eligible for first-line H. pylori eradication therapy, at least 80% of eradication rate should be achieved by intention to treat (ITT) analysis. However, the triple therapy (PPI, clarithromycin, amoxicillin) is losing 1st-line therapy because of increasing antibiotic resistance. The most common cause of failure in triple ...

Monocyte Profiles in Critically Ill Patients With Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Sepsis

During bacterial related sepsis, one of the key playing cells are macrophages, monocytes and T-lymphocytes (Hotchkiss et al., 2003). Macrophages and monocytes are supposed to be essential for the septic reaction to Gram-negative bacteria (Hotchkiss et al. 2003). Generally, there are two dominant types of macrophages: the pro-inflammatory M1 macrophage ...

Phase N/A

Etiology of Endocarditis in Negative Blood Cultures

Infective endocarditis remains a serious disease that requires fast and specialized support in 2012. However, 24% of endocarditis unanswered etiology. The systematic use of new policy diagnosis, including (i) a systematic use of specific PCR techniques and (ii) the search for markers of inflammatory and tumoral diseases, should increase the ...

Feasibility Studies to Inform Novel Proposals to Avert Community-Based Antimicrobial Resistance Spread

Study A. Mapping of resistant gram negative bacteria (RGNB) in the community: Based on RGNB clinical isolates as a proxy for gut colonising RGNB and residential Lower Layer Super Output Area (LSOA) data retrieved from laboratory information systems of a hospital cohort, to describe the geographical distribution of RGNB in ...
