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

2015-07-21 12:23:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 using molecular tools. The aim of this study is to better estimate the digestive reservoir of S. aureus to better prevent endogenous infections due to this bacterium.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pneumonia caused by infections with bacteria of the genus STAPHYLOCOCCUS, usually with STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.

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.

Infections with bacteria of the genus STAPHYLOCOCCUS.

Infections to the skin caused by bacteria of the genus STAPHYLOCOCCUS.

A protein present in the cell wall of most Staphylococcus aureus strains. The protein selectively binds to the Fc region of human normal and myeloma-derived IMMUNOGLOBULIN G. It elicits antibody activity and may cause hypersensitivity reactions due to histamine release; has also been used as cell surface antigen marker and in the clinical assessment of B lymphocyte function.
