ASPIRE-SSI is a prospective, observational, multicentre cohort study among adult surgical patients, which aims to determine the incidence of healthcare-associated S. aureus infections, particularly S. aureus surgical site infections (SSIs), across Europe and to assess the most important risk factors for this type of infection.
The primary objective of ASPIRE-SSI is to determine the incidence of S. aureus infections, particularly S. aureus SSIs, in various adult surgical patient populations, and to identify the patient-related, pathogen-related, and contextual risk factors for the development of S. aureus SSI. Using this information, a SSI prediction tool will be derived for future clinical trials and public health interventions aimed at SSI prevention. Furthermore, immunologic features protective against S. aureus SSI will also be assessed.
The knowledge obtained by this study will enable identification of the surgical patients most at risk of developing S. aureus infections, particularly S. aureus SSI, and who would probably benefit most from new interventions given prophylactically and specifically to prevent S. aureus infections.

A strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is non-susceptible to the action of METHICILLIN. The mechanism of resistance usually involves modification of normal or the presence of acquired PENICILLIN BINDING PROTEINS.
A 25-kDa peptidase produced by Staphylococcus simulans which cleaves a glycine-glcyine bond unique to an inter-peptide cross-bridge of the STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS cell wall. EC 126.96.36.199.
Pneumonia caused by infections with bacteria of the genus STAPHYLOCOCCUS, usually with STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.
A species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, but containing different esterases. The subspecies Staphylococcus hominis novobiosepticus is highly virulent and novobiocin resistant.
Potentially pathogenic bacteria found in nasal membranes, skin, hair follicles, and perineum of warm-blooded animals. They may cause a wide range of infections and intoxications.
