The goal of this study is to further the investigators' understanding of community acquired methicillin-resistant Staph Aureus (CA-MRSA) and treatment of it by developing real-world sustainable strategies consistent with existing guidelines on treatment of CA-MRSA from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and test these strategies in busy primary care settings.
Nosocomial infections is a major problem in intensive care units due to both growing incidence and pathogens implicated which become increasingly resistant to antibiotics. According to the Center for Disease Control (USA), Staphylococcus aureus is responsible for approximately 10% of cases. In Europe, 79% of the S.aureus strains are resistant to methicillin, a routinely used antibiotic. Recommendations for the prevention of transmission of these resistant bacteria are rarely ba...
This study aims to examine features of MRSA that are associated with chronic MRSA infection and bacterial persistence despite IV antibiotic therapy. Subjects are asked to expectorate sputum and complete CF symptom diaries both at beginning and end of IV therapy.
One hundred new residents will be recruited prior to the start of residency and followed prospectively for a year. Monthly nasal swabs will be performed to identify colonization with methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).The proportion of study subjects colonized with MRSA at the end of 1 year will be calculated.
1.To assess whether the Elution swab (ESwab) is superior to Amies transport swabs for the detection of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE) in colonized patients and to determine whether nasal cultures alone is sufficient for detection of MRSA isolates in hospitalized patients. 2.To assess patient comfort in the use of the ESwab vs. Amies Transport swab for screening patients fo...
Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a commonplace complication of intensive care patients ventilated for longer than 48 hours. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is the cause of late onset VAP in up to about 30% of cases in US hospitals. Ineffective treatment of MRSA VAP clearly leads to prolonged mechanical ventilation and is probably associated with higher mortality. The purpose of this protocol is to directly compare linezolid and vancomycin specifically...
Use of linezolid in patients with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections in Japan
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of pre-surgical patients who are MRSA carriers. From an evidence-based practice perspective, findings from this study can be considered in the evaluation of the hospital SOP mandating pre-surgical MRSA screening requirements for patients with scheduled surgeries. The central hypothesis to be addressed in this study is whether the MRSA colonization and subsequent post-operative infection are the equivalent in these populat...
To determine if linezolid is superior to vancomycin in the treatment of nosocomial (acquired in the hospital) pneumonia due to MRSA in adult subjects. Subjects entered in to the study will have proven healthcare-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus pneumonia which will be treated with either linezolid or vancomycin.
The primary question of this study is to understand if trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) is as effective as vancomycin for treating methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) osteomyelitis.
The aim of this study is to determine whether vancomycin with cefazoline is superior to vancomycin with placebo in preventing gastrostomy-related wound infection in carriers of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
This clinical trial tests the hypothesis that body decolonization of patients with recurrent community-associated (CA) MRSA infections will significantly reduce the likelihood of recurrent CA-MRSA infection.
The purpose of this study is to determine the optimal outpatient treatment strategy of uncomplicated skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI) in areas of the United States where the prevalence of Community-Acquired Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus (S.) aureus (CA-MRSA) is high. Infection with the S. aureus bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics is a cause of SSTIs. Three oral antibiotics will be tested for off patent treatment. Patients will receive Trimethoprim/Sulfamethox...
This randomized controlled trial will compare strategies to reduce the risk of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection and re-hospitalization in MRSA carriers. This trial will provide critical answers about the role of decolonization versus standard-of-care education in preventing MRSA infections in the large group of high risk MRSA-positive patients being discharged from hospitals. Findings could potentially impact best practice for the 1.8 million MRSA ca...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate 2 different antibiotics, drugs that fight bacteria, [clindamycin (CLINDA) and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX)] and wound care for the outpatient management of uncomplicated skin and soft tissue infections (uSSTIs) in children and adults. The study will occur in areas where community associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus (S.) aureus are common. S. aureus is a type of bacteria. A total of 1310 volunteers, greater...
This is i pilot study conducted to evaluate the safety, local tolerability and efficacy of LTX-109(Lytixar™), a lytic peptide designed to kill bacterias quickly and efficient. LTX-109 (Lytixar™)will be applied in the anterior nares in subjects who are carriers of nasal colonies of MRSA. The extent of systemic absorption of LTX -109 when applied to the anterior nares will be evaluated and the effect of Lytixar™ as to clear colonies of MRSA during the the observation ...
Trial Objectives: Primary objective: - To evaluate the efficacy of Bio-K+CL1285® in patients with Methicillin-Resistant S. aureus (MRSA) nasal colonization by comparing the MRSA decolonization following either Bio-K+CL1285® or placebo treatment. Secondary objective: - To evaluate the safety profile of Bio-K+CL1285®.
Staphylococcus aureus nasal carriage is a major risk factor of infection with this bacterium. To our best knowledge, Staphylococcus aureus colonization of the posterior nasal cavity is still misunderstood. This study is aimed at evaluating the relationship between Staphylococcus aureus strains colonizing the vestibulum nasi, the sphenoethmoidal recess and the nasopharynx.
The purpose of this study is to compare the performance of the 3M(TM) BacLite (TM) Rapid MRSA test system to traditional culture methods in detecting the presence of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) directly from nasal samples.
In-vitro identification of S. aureus, methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA), and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) from positive blood cultures by MicroPhage's bacteriophage-based diagnostic platform.
The purpose of this investigation is to study the relationships between antimicrobial stewardship program efforts, antimicrobial drug use, and infection control efforts to the incidence rates of hospital acquired infections with Staphylocossus aureus in a sample of US academic medical center hospitals.
This cluster-randomized prospective study will evaluate the effect of hygiene-based intervention strategies on the incidence of overall SSTI and MRSA-associated SSTI among military trainees. The proposed interventions used singly or in combination include standardized training and education, and weekly chlorhexidine showers.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) infection is perceived not only as a common secondary complication of atopic dermatitis (AD), but also as a culprit in the worsening of this condition. In addition, the recent development of community acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus (CA-MRSA) has presented a new challenge to our management of AD, both in treatment of acute infections and maintenance therapy. We would like to perform a randomized investigator-blinded placebo-controlle...
Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) infections are a common cause of morbidity and mortality in nursing home residents. MRSA is predominantly spread from patient-to-patient by health care workers. The use of gowns, gloves and hand washing prevents this spread; however, their use detracts from a patient-centered, home-like environment which is an important priority for nursing homes. The goal of this project is to determine when it is most important for health care workers to...
To establish the clinical test performance characteristics of sensitivity, specificity and predictive values for direct detection of nasal Staphylococcus aureus colonization against clinical microbiology laboratory culture methods.
